    Great job! Thanks for sharing 🙂

    Your ClickList order looks like only the items that were on coupons. Did they allow that or did you have other items to pad out the $50 purchase requirement?

    I’ve got some additional store discounts on my account from my last shopping trip. Some errors were made and they compensated me with free ClickList fee, $5 extra savings just because and $5 off on print coupons that I had with me that they couldn’t run through the register because they totaled out my order before I got there. Should have been on hold so they could access it again later. So that’s about $15 extra savings without a purchase requirement. I wonder if I can drive away from the store with them owing me money? Wouldn’t that be a kick?

      Yes, I used coupons for almost every item I bought. The $10 off $50 was for $50 BEFORE coupons…so it was a great deal!

      It sounds like you had a pretty great ClickList trip as well! That’s amazing!
