I have a question for your readers about courtesy to store employees who work on commission or sales points. I received a coupon for $20 off of a $20 purchase that I used today. I could tell the employees must work on commission and I tried to be polite but make it clear that I wasn’t planning on doing much spending today. I hated to waste the employee’s time. I found some socks for $24 and paid, but I felt bad. I probably brought down her UPT for today and probably hurt her sales percentage for the day. How do you balance taking advantage of a great deal while respecting that some people’s jobs depend on bigger purchases (that I am not prepared to make).
