** had internet coupons for $2 off, but as soon as they printed I had a feeling they wouldn’t scan.  I printed in black & white and they just didn’t look right.  So I could have paid $4 less from my total and made money on the tea, but I just broke even!!!    I try to be very  careful with coupons.  There are a lot of fraudulent coupons floating around the internet.  I don’t want to be involved in that if I can knowingly avoid it.  Idon’t think the coupons were fake, just after printing they were very clear.  So I didn’t make a deal out of it.  I don’t want to loose face over $4!  I don’t want the cashiers to dread me showing up b/c my coupons are always a problem.  I want my trips to go smooth and quick so if that means I loose a few dollars here and there that is okay!
