What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

Does Policy Equal Uniformity'? Jc Super-Couponing Tips by Jill Cataldo Jill Cataldo saves hundreds on groceries by making the most of the common coupon. You can. too. Here's how Have you taken a few minutes to familiarize yourself with your favorite stores coupon poli- cies? Most stores have a written coupon policy. which you usually can find on the store's website or at the customer service counter inside the store Coupon policies are invaluable tools for coupon shoppers as they contain the answers to many common questions Can I use two coupons on a Buy One Get One Free sale? Will my store ac- cept a competitor coupon? All of this is spelled out for us in the policy The coupon policy is an excellent tool for clear- ing up confusion in the checkout lane Imagine this You have an issue with a cashier refusing to accept a coupon but you know that according to the store's policy they should accept it Simply pull out the coupon policy and show the cashier and it becomes easy to resolve Over the years. many readers have told me that they like to carry a printout of the policy in their coupon wallets or pull up the policy on the store's website using a smartphone But what happens when your store doesn't have a coupon policy? It becomes more difficult to plan shop- ping trips because you don't know what your store will accept And, in the case of cashier confusion you've got nothing to refer back to in order to support your argument that your usage is correct Here's an email from a reader with a coupon policy dilemma Dear Jill. Here's a question I haven't seen in your column before What do you do when your store has a great coupon policy but is threatening to get rod of it com- pletely? Here is what happened The biggest chain of Stores in our area recently got sold to a new owner The new owner announced they are going to take away the corporate coupon policy and let each store decide what kind of coupons to take and what not to accept This is my worst nightmare as a shopper , It takes time to plan a coupon -shopping trip as you By Jill Cataldo CCTW Features know This chain's current policy is great they accept competitor coupons let you use a dollar -off on one item and a BOGO coupon on the second I love shopping here But you would not believe how often the cashiers don't know the store's coupon policy at all' So many times they gloat and say no we don't do that \ and I pull out the policy and nicely say \yes right here it says you do \ Now, the new owner is saying they want to give the stores the freedom to accept whatever they want because each location is in a different commu- nity and they should set their own rules for different stores in different towns That's ridiculous Vindictive cashiers will gloat now that they can say we can do whatever we want \ Curtis 0 I'm aware of this situation because its happening to one of my favorite chains where I live A new owner bought the stores announcing that they don't feel a 'one size tits air coupon policy is appropriate strange considering there are more than one hundred stores in this chain in my area I don't agree with the change any more than this reader does Policies and rules exist to maintain order and consistency among stores In a way they're the \laws' of couponing Ditching a good, already -in -place policy in favor of a free-for-all is akin to a state allowing each town to make up its own traffic laws You'd learn the rules in one town then drive to the next one and find something completely different going onl Not good Smart Living Tip Rules exist for a reason in life, and in couponing , Removing the rules can only create confusion If things become too inconsistent at the store level know that you can always shop at another store - one with a solid coupon policy to refer to and abide by Jill Gala/do a coupon workshop instructor, wnter and mother of three, never passes up a good deal Learn more about couponong at her Web site. viww super- couponing corn E-mail your own couponIng vic tones and questions to jillectwleatures corn CTW Features 110 Southside Blvd Dillon.
