  1. Himself says

    Ah, coffee. Which reminds me of the reasons I heart New Seasons.

    Now, don’t get excited, I really have issues with the bastards. But here’s what I do like:

    1. Free espresso drinks while shopping. Just stop by the espresso counter when you first arrive, order your drink and sip it while you shop. Just be sure to ditch your cup in one of the trash cans in the bulk aisle or produce before checking out!

    2. Free bags of ice. Pay for one, take three! Heck, pay for none, take three! Nobody checks!

    3. Free snacks for the kids. Heck, they encourage you to open packages while you shop, so have at it! Just be sure to discreetly ditch your packages with your coffee cups (see 1. above).

    4. Return-o-rama! Take back your empty jars and tell the nice cashier the seal was broken and the contents were moldy. If it’s less than $10, they’ll just credit you right there, no questions, no receipt.

    5. Discounts on top of discounts! Buy a case when an item is on sale, and get an additional 10% off. Now, you’re not supposesd to get the additional 10% when an item is on sale, but mostly the cashiers (especially when busy) won’t bother to check. If they do, just insist that the grocery person told you you’d get it. If there’s a line behind you, they’ll just give it to you.
