Additional 50% off Clearance price - YMMV

I stopped at my nearest DG today, since it was on the way home. I saw that they had signs on both ends of the aisle saying "50% off", which I have seen before. But, this time, I actually read the tiny print also that said "Additional discount taken at register". That made me think. So, I asked a passing worker and was told that it was an additional 50% off the clearance tag. I didn't buy a lot, because I wanted to watch the register screen. But, I did get a few True Living 16 x 27 hand towels (100% cotton and surprisingly soft and well-made) for $0.88 each and some Jack's Links Beef Jerky for $1.75. I did watch the register and the cashier hit a key, after ringing up each clearance item, and it did show a new line saying "Markdown Cart", with the discounted price. I went to another location next and no signs and no additional discount. So, YMMV.

I think I might visit again tomorrow, for more beef jerky. Unfortunately, my visit today was on the way home from Rite Aid, where I bought my mom 2 of the B1G1F @ $6.99 Jacks Links beef jerky. A trip to DG first would have gotten me 4, for the same price.

I found this cart at a local DG but they refused to give me the additional 50% off since I was using coupons. They had Lipton to Go for $1.75 making it around $0.80 and I had $0.40/1 MQ's and French's mustard for $0.50 making it a quarter and I had a $0.30/1 q. So I just walked out without any of it.

Today, I got:

Cinch Buttermilk Pancake Mix: $0.45

Squirt Singles To Go (6-packs): $0.38

Chiclets Gum (6-packs): $0.45

Clover Valley Roasted and Salted Pistachios (6 oz): $1.63

I'm having second thoughts about not getting those Clover Valley Apple Jellies. I looked at them, in the store, and thought that no one would eat them. But, now, i'm remembering the taste of apple jelly and actually want some now. At $0.63, I should have just got one for kicks.

After they scan each clearance item, they have to hit a key on the register that applies the discount. I thought it was automatic and would come off at the end. So, yesterday, I didn't say anything, until I was given my final total and it was twice as much as it should have been. I told the cashier and she was like 'It's not automatic and I would have to cancel it and re-ring everything'. I said okay and waited. It seemed like she thought I would just let it go and pay the higher price. Yeah, right! That wasn't going to happen - LOL

Signs said Fri and Sat only at my store. Yes, discount is not automatic. Clerk had to punch a button for the 50% discount.

About them not letting you use a Q because it was on clearance. B S. Make a call to Corporate. Or fill out the survey. Or both.

I stopped by my nearest location this morning and the signs were still up. But, the cashier said that she thinks this is the last day, for the additional 50% off. There was a cart and a rack up front, near the register, that had the same color clearance tags on them. I really wanted to go through it, to see if there was anything good. But, I didn't want to take the chance of it not being included in the additional 50% off. Maybe i'll check tonight.

i want to look so bad, as i did use to shop there regularly.....but i just cant after 2 times of being yelled at and argued to by the store manager at our local store.....im done. wont step foot in there...it was over a year from the last time she yelled at me, then started going in their regularly again and then there was an issue and coupons and a whole big ordeal and 10 ppl staring me down and she had the nerve to tell me / told me i was stealing. it aint going work out like you plan, etc. just plain ridiculing me. contradicting herself with coupon lingo and knowledge...flashing the coupon sign saying this what we do and dont do that. no more than 4 coupons total and only one dollar store coupon per day. she even matched up the coupons with the items and said o yea thats fine then all of a sudden got snappy and refused them and made a scene. o boy and last time she even pulled all items i was trying to get with coupons. which i did happen to several of those items in the clearance aisle with dust on them, theyd been there so long...funny how nobody else even wanted them to begin with. and im telling you it had to been about a year since i went back....what was so wrong with me getting them at a reduced price with coupons. im gettting flustered just thinking about it. she needs to be reported. ive tried and tried to contact customer service, our district manager, dollar general dot com contact form, all and not luck, no help. i know im not the only one in town with complains bout her.
