Day 29 of the 365 Day Challenge: make friends with the store cashiers
Today was my errand day. I hit Walgreens, CVS and Publix armed with my coupons. It was very productive mostly because I made an effort to get to know the cashiers.
At Walgreens I was expecting to get $8 in Register Rewards but didn’t realize that I couldn’t redeem them and make them in the same transaction. I asked the cashier why I didn’t get my rewards and she had to ask the manager. Since I was friendly and genuinely didn’t know the rule, he gave them to me anyway! He certainly didn’t have to do that. Because of his generosity I will make more of an effort to buy from his store.
My next stop was Publix. I always use the same cashier because she knows how to ring up my coupons and she usually helps me make better purchases. I used more coupons than ever today so I warned her. She was nice as ever and made sure that all of my coupons were utilized.
Getting to know the cashiers is fun! I like catching up with them every week. Plus they always look out for me!
