Default I cried cuz I lost my coupon!!

Yes I did, in front of my father in the Michaels parking lot... long story short, I THINK I am PMSing ,at least I hope so, I wanted to use my 40% off coupon which I had in my pocket since Sat (sale started Sun).. I went today to get this cool embellishment case (19.95)..I had the coupon in my pocket 20 minutes before I got there..shopped, got to the checkout with my very unhappy baby, I couldn't find it, it must have fallen out of my coat pocket at the previous stop and was in that parking lot. My dad was in the parking lot with the twins, I tell the checker hang on I will look in the car, I hand the baby to my dad, I start CRYING...and carrying on like a lunatic,, I go back in the store, obviously had been crying the guy says NOTHING, I said "I swear I JUST had it!!" He says nothing again, I said"OK, just take that out of the bag, I am not getting it" He finished ringing me up and I left. I got in the car and was so upset still that I didn't get my cool case. ***?????? Females and hormones..just don't mix!! Has this ever happened to anyone else, or am I losing it?? The bummer is I am not getting another coupon until Friday (MAYBE) and that was the last case so it will probably be gone. ARGH!

THANKS FOR LETTING ME VENT!!

Just go to the store and buy another newpaper and get a new coupon. You are still probably saving plenty, even with having to buy another paper. Sounds like you are just having a bad day...I'm sorry!

Michaels used to be so much nicer when they'd actually GIVE you a coupon if you didn't have it.

Can't believe the cashier didn't offer you to sign your name on "THE LIST" and give you the coupon anyway!

The coupon now comes in the "junk" mail flyers on Friday, not in the Sunday papers..and my stores don't have the Sunday papers out after Sunday anyway. And, I couldn't believe the guy just wouldn't let me use one he already had...I was literally an emotional basket case..I am doing better now but obsessing on that cool case!!

Maybe you call around to family, friends, co-workers and see if anyone still has their ad from Friday. It's only Monday, maybe some people haven't gotten around to looking thru their mail yet.

Well, that's too bad. Ours come in the Sunday paper still and most grocery stores carry them until they either run out or the next week's paper is about to show up.

Our Michaels and JoAnns also come in the junk mail "mini newspaper" that comes in sometime mid-week. I think they put those coupons in that paper because no one I know actually reads them, that way they don't lose as much in coupon sales.

I'm so sorry. I think it is horrible that M's won't give you the discount. I would mail you my coupon since I doubt I will use it. I have had those days. I recently went to the pharmacy to be told my RX wouldn't go through and they tried calling the insurance but they were on hold too long. I had to pay the entire price and deal with it myself. I tried not to cry standing there because I really needed it the next day and of course it was the weekend. I hate feeling helpless and frusturated. I hope tomorrow gets better for you! Hugs!

Before I read your last post, I was going to offer up one of my coupons. (I have 2). since I live in MO and you in IL, I figured if I sent it tomorrow, you would get it Wed. Oh well, I'm glad you found one.

Default Never Ending Coupons!!

Here is a secret; go to www.hobbylobby.com and sign up for their email newsletter. every week they email me a 40% off coupon, and then I print out MANY of them... they are good at Micheal's and Joanne's too!!

Also; I feel for you! It sounds like you had a really bad day, and I hope you are feeling better today!

Gawd I hate hormones. I got really really emotional on here last week about a Seinfeld episode. I thought two girls were picking on me for something I said and I completely over reacted! I wouldn't doubt it if they put me on ignore... I feel like a freak!

FYI- If I tell the cashier that I did not receive a fyer in my newspaper that week she asks for your postalk code you sign a form and she gives you the discount anyway.

I see from this thread that other Michaels also have a "list" by each register for those who forgot the coupon. You have to sign, and then they ring up your discount. The next time you are in the store, ask if it their local policy or the chain's policy.

Could save you a trip to get another paper.
