BB&BWe all know I'm a huge fan of Bed, Bath & Beyond because I can use expired coupons, gift cards and take advantage of sales to get a great deal on household items.
Yesterday I had to break down and spend some $$ since I don't have enough gift cards to keep everything free and I needed something for the house. I went, found a good price on an item, went looking for my 20% coupon and realized I didn't have one with me. I remembered someone at work gave me one (I'm bartering baked goods for coupons) and went out to the car to get it out of my backpack.
As I was walking back into the store with my coupon, I saw a piece of paper lying on the ground right at the entrance. It looked like a coupon so I stopped and looked at it. I don't know if someone dropped it by accident or saw the expiration date on it and figured (like I used to do) that it was no good and had dropped it there. So, I grabbed it up, took it in and sure enough they accepted it for my purchase even though it expired 11/2009. You have to love a place that will take a coupon that is 7 mos. expired. And I still have my newer coupon for another purchase.
Thanks mysterious stranger and thanks BB&B for being so good about coupons and deals!
