Also, purplestar77 is bang on... I have found that looking for a younger till op is the only way to go... as the senior members of staff are just too into their job... and they make you feel like you are robbing the store.
On a side note... i had one of my worst couponing experiences this week, I was in supervalu getting just a couple of small things as i was passing it and i had a coupon in the car for ages (but still in date) printed in B&W.
I said to myself i better use this up while im here but when i got to a till (with young till op) with my few bits, the lady went off to check if it was okay to use this b&W coupon with customer services.
I like to think im a somewhat hardened couponer... but no joking, six minutes later, i am still standing there with an irate looking woman next in line behind me with a trolley load of items on the belt along with 4 people behind her and my till op is still over at customer services till (which is also backed up with 7 or 8 people there) and the customer services till op is on the phone to the office i presume to verify if its an acceptable coupon or not in their eyes while every so often looking over at me to see if i am a character of ill repute!
They didnt accept in the end - but tesco will tomorrow! - i never have a problem with any coupons in there.
Not going to supervalu anymore. Their loss.
