Right now, couponing is a big thing. Stores sometimes don’t have enough stock to meet the demand on sale items.
1. Ask the cashier when the store will be restocking. Many stores will receive another truck of stock during the week.
2. Ask the cashier for a raincheck. (A raincheck is a usually a slip of paper that you can bring back to the store later, and they will still honor the sale price.)
3. Check with another store from the same chain. Sometime different stores in different parts of town receive more stock or have fewer couponers visit.
4. If all else fails, be patient and remember there will be another sale. You can’t always get every deal you want. I wish we could, but even I miss out on a good deal now and then!
