My husband Big Guy and I were standing in a sales register line at a clothing store.
He had declined to purchase a replacement pair of work shorts (though sorely needed) due to their price. I was waiting to pay for one sale-priced item for myself.
I noticed consternation and furrowed brows at both cash registers while I continued to wait.
I couldn’t tell if they were doing returns, or trying to send up a rocket.
When it was finally my turn, I was just hoping to get out of there as quickly as possible.
At the close of the transaction, the cashier said to me, “blah, blah, $10 dollars off, blah, blah, back of receipt”.
I don’t know what else she said, but the “$10 off” part came through loud and clear.
At home the online survey regarding our visit took 7 minutes to complete. (If you don’t wear bifocals, it will likely take you less time.)
The four digit code from the company was in my email in a couple of days. The code was good for $10 off any subsequent purchase of $40 or more.
Big Guy now has new work shorts.
The sales receipt for the work shorts had the same offer on the back. It's a gift that keeps on giving.
Big Guy now has new work t-shirts.
And so on, and so on, and so on…
The fine print:
Note all the rules on the back of your receipt.
For example, the survey may have to be completed within so many days of your transaction, and there may be a limited time for you to return to the store to use the offer code. There may be a minimum purchase amount requirement.
Keep your receipt for details like store number, date and time of visit.
