Coupons Are Not Worth Fighting AboutThere are some couponers who will get extremely excited when they find a good coupon. They look forward to using it and saving money.

It is understandable that a person could feel disappointed, upset, or embarrassed, when the cashier refuses to honor their coupon. No matter what emotions you are feeling in that situation, coupons are not worth fighting about.

Some people believe that the best method of ensuring that they get the customer service they want is to throw a fit. They think that fighting with the cashier, demanding to speak to a manager, and holding up the line at the register is going to influence a cashier to take an expired coupon.

Why do people behave that way? It is probably because doing so has worked for them in the past. Some stores have policies in place to placate customers who are loud and disgruntled.

There are very good reasons why coupons are not worth fighting about. We live in a world where nearly everyone has a smartphone. People no longer hesitate to whip out their smartphone and take a video of a person who is behaving badly in public. The couponer who throws a fit may find a video of their bad behavior being circulated on the internet.

It is also possible that the fight a person chooses to start with a cashier could lead to legal issues. A grandmother and grandson discovered this after they started an argument with a cashier who would not accept their Coca-Cola coupon.

The grandson, who was a teenager, allegedly became very upset. The grandmother allegedly continued to yell at the cashier. Someone called the police. It is unclear who it was, but another shopper told police that he was offended by the profanity the grandmother was using. Long story short, the grandmother and grandson were booked on two counts of disorderly conduct (and other charges).

There are other reasons why you shouldn’t start a fight with a cashier over a coupon. Keep in mind that your cashier is not the person who created the store’s coupon policy. He or she has no authority to change it – not even when a customer starts screaming about a rejected coupon. Pushing a cashier to take an expired coupon might save you a little money, but it could cost that cashier his or her job.

What can you do when a cashier refuses to accept your coupon? Most people just shrug and recycle the coupon. One rejected coupon is not the end of the world. Your other coupons probably were accepted, so you ended up saving money anyway.

Good Tip: Saving money is important – especially if you have a lot of expenses like bills to pay, loans to pay off, and all the other things that drain your bank account. Figuring out a way to save money can feel tedious to some, and like a punishment to others. U.S. News suggests that you try one of these money saving challenges. The “No Eating Out for a Month” Challenge This one is self-explanatory. The goal is to avoid eating out for an entire month. This might be super easy for people who enjoy making meals at home. People who really enjoy dining out, or ordering food to be sent to their home, may struggle with this one. It’s worth a try because spending money on take-out is more expensive than buying groceries. The Pantry Challenge This one is a variation of the “No Eating Out for a Month” challenge. The goal is to use up all of your groceries before you buy more. It forces you to try and remember why you bought a food or beverage that you don’t know what to do with, and gives you the opportunity to find a way to use it. The one exemption to this challenge is the foods that have expired. Don’t eat them! Throw them in the trash. The “No Spend” Challenge Make a goal to avoid spending money during an entire weekend. The only exemption in this challenge is that you are allowed to pay bills. This challenge is interesting because it requires creativity. You must be creative and find workarounds for problems that you would typically solve by spending money. You may have a different outlook on spending after finishing this challenge.
