I realize that there are people against using all the coupons, but here's what happened at my TRU in FL. I brought both of each $5, $10, and $8 coupons in just in case, figured if they said no I could at least use the $10 off ones. I pre-ordered both TS's and got Ratatouille as well since I had an $8 off one for that.
By the by, the bluray case thing threw me as well. Mine had about 2-3 of each at 5pm in the afternoon, they were not holding any behind the counter.
The girl looked at my coupons and said "I don't know if these will all ring up, but we'll try and if not just use the $10 off ones okay." She didn't call a manager or anything which surprised the heck outta me, I mean really?!?! When I worked in retail I would have definitely called for one! It's kinda common sense, right?
Then she proceeded to ring up the movies and the coupons. The system took all of them! It didn't even beep to say there might be an issue...I was shocked! So I paid the tax for all three and walked out in a daze that they took them....
Now if you include the deal I got on Cars with the pre-order ( $24.99 -$15, -$5 glitch, -$8 coupon= tax only) and the deal I got at Target for PAFP and Pixar Shorts on bluray ( I got PAFP with the coupons thinking great deal =), but the hubby had ordered it for my birthday from Disney Movie Club for $13.95, so I returned it and got the entire price payment back-- they basically paid for my other copy. Why does Target do that!?! Anyone know why?).
So we paid $1.50 each for a total of $10 for 6 blurays. I'm doing the Bandaid rebate on PAFP ($5) and I get two tickets to see Toy Story 3 with the hubby (which will be nice as we just had a baby 2 months ago and need a "date" night out). I'm kinda giddy that it all worked out cause we really don't have a lot of money right now with the new baby. I'm staying at home because child care in FL is flippin expensive as all heck and now I have some entertainment for when she's napping and I'm doing house cleaning or the dishes and whatnot.
I'm still in shock that they took them all and quite honestly can't believe that TRU dosen't have something in place for this type of thing.
