When you become an avid couponer (or even when you start out as a newbie), you quickly learn the value of a kind and hardworking cashier and/or store manager. When you are checking out at the store with a large number of coupons, an employee that is knowledgeable about the store’s coupon policy… and/or someone who is more than happy to take the time to ensure that each coupon is scanned correctly can make all the difference between a great shopping experience versus one that makes you never want to shop with coupons again.
So….the big question of the day is from reader, Marissa:
I have had a question for a while now and especially after seeing your thank a mailman post (thank you so much for the heads up by the way!), I was wondering if I could get your input or fellow Hip2Savers input on the situation…
I am VERY blessed to have amazing cashiers at my local Walgreens & CVS that I shop at. I’m not a crazy couponer by any means. I’m 23 and started couponing about 2 years ago but we are definitely at Walgreens & CVS every Monday morning & have gotten to know the staff. 2 girls in particular know my kids’ names (& we know theirs) and always talk to them and make them feel special when we come in. We also have a man at Sam’s Club that will ALWAYS find us in the store and give my older son a free icee slur-pee whenever we shop there!
Ok so onto my question… I am a big baker (baking is usually how I show any major emotion to others, love, gratitude, congratulations etc.) I have always thought about baking cookies to bring in with just a little “thank you for being so kind & helpful card.” My mom thinks it’s sweet, my husband thinks it’s weird & “creepy.” LOL! So I wanted to get the opinion of some others or at least you on couponing etiquette involving giving back or at least letting those know how grateful you are for being so helpful to you week after week without crossing a “weirdo” line 🙂
So now it’s your turn… what advice can you offer Marissa?
