Giving Coupons to a Random Shopper
During my lunch break I headed out to Rite-Aid to buy two boxes of cereal. I saw an ad on the front of the weekly sales circular for Lucky Charms and knew I had to buy some. I haven’t eaten the stuff in ages, but as soon as I saw the ad I began to crave it. The boxes are on sale this week for $1.99 and I had a coupon for $1 off 2, so I drove down to Rite-Aid to get myself two boxes of yummy Lucky Charms cereal.
I headed right to the cereal isle, grabbed the two boxes, and began heading for the checkout line, when a little boy and girl turned the corner. They each reached for a box of cereal and asked their mother if they could have them. I was about to walk around them when I realized that I hadn’t given anything away for the day, (I’m on day 14 of the 29 day giving challenge), so I asked the woman if she wanted a coupon for the cereal she was buying. She took the coupon and thanked me. At that point I looked at her cart and realized that I might have other coupons that she could use. Sure enough, I found three other coupons that matched the items she was buying. All told I saved her $3.50 and gave the gift of coupons away on day 14 of my 29 day giving challenge.
