There are 2 name-brand items where I don’t substitute:
*Charmin Ultra Soft Mega Roll
Any other toilet paper is sand paper. No other dishwasher pac cleans as well in my crap condo dishwasher.
And they go on sale a few times a year.
So, when I saw this on my Randall’s (Safeway) store card, and had 2 manufacturer coupons, I knew it was time to stock up.
The grocer rang up my stuff before I could keypad in my reward card phone number.
There was no way I was going to pay $55 for 3 packs.
So off to customer service.
The cashier had been too ancy before. The customer service lady chided him via phone.
I made her laugh at the situation instead of being upset and was really glad and ended up getting about $12 back for being wary and knowing about how much things SHOULD be.
Each mega roll was only $0.60. It’s my best price to date. Usually less than $0.75/roll is good.
In addition, I asked for the Cuisinart stamps the guy ahead of me didn’t want and the ones I earned.
Don’t be afraid to speak up!
It will be worth your while.
