The reason I ask is because my friend and I went shopping at our local Charlotte Russe today. I had this coupon on hand, so I decided to use it on our purchase. All of our items happened to be sale items. Here's what happened when I got to the register.
Me: "I have this coupon that I want to use." *hands coupon to cashier*
Cashier: *takes coupon, looks it over* "Hey, Angie*, are we taking these coupons?"
Angie: *takes coupon from cashier* "No. You have to have a coupon signed from the person who gave it to you."
Me: *puzzled look* "Noone gave it to me, it was emailed to me...from Charlotte Russe.com. I signed up for their emails.
Angie: "Let me call another store to find out if we can take this." *dials the number to another store* [on the phone with the other store].....she said they emailed it to her........so we can take it?........and it can only be used on regular priced items, right?.....okay, bye *hangs up the phone*. Since all of your stuff is clearance, you can't use it anyway. Sorry.
Me: It doesn't say on the coupon that I can't use it on sale items.
Angie: Well, the manager at the other store told me that she redeemed these types of coupons and they can't be used on sale items.
Me: Okay...... *still confuzzled*
I still purchased the items, but correct me if I'm wrong. I know it says on the coupon that it can't be used in conjunction with any other discount offer, but doesn't that mean it can't be used with another coupon? Or is clearance considered a discount offer? What do y'all think? Was the cashier right or should I have gotten my discount?
