Using Expired Coupons

If you have an expired coupon (non-grocery), the store may still honor it. I recently purchased pricey dog food at a pet store. I nearly threw away an expired coupon for $3.00, but decided to present it on the off-chance that they would accept it. I was pleasantly surprised when the clerk noticed the expiration, but did an override on the cash register.

Don't just trust the person checking you out, always consult with the real store manager before you use these. Playing dumb doesn't work. They know that line.

Your trying to save money not pay a fine for using them.

Just thought you ought to know this.

Cub Food Stores and Walmart Stores (at least here in MN) are taking coupons with expiration dates 90 days post. You have to have the checker verify with floor manager, as they all don't seem to retain that information.
