Ben needed to go to town today, and I decided to make it family trip, so that I could stop in Walmart for a few potential goodies. Wouldn't you know it, I left my bag of Walmart coupons in the other vehicle when I was cleaning out my Mom purse?
I was a little disappointed, since Walmart actually had some of the items I'd been trying to find for a couple of weeks. However, my mood was lifted at the end of my checkout. As the cashier was handing me my receipt, she asked me if I had an extra 15 minutes. I have never had a cashier ask me that before, so I gave a hesitant, "Maybe... why?"
I got back a receipt with a survey opportunity. Now, I've received these many times before, and I actually fill them out quite often when I get home to be entered in the giveaway for gift cards of $100 or more. Apparently I was lucky enough to be there at the right time, because they offered me a $5 gift card if I would be willing to fill out the survey before leaving the store, in addition to the regular giveaway entry.
Ben had already taken 1, 2, and 3 out to the van. I have a feeling he wasn't thrilled when I called him from my cell phone to tell him I'd be out in about 10 minutes while I took a survey, but he didn't grumble too loudly : ) I finished in just under ten minutes and walked out of the store with a sweet $5 gift card! Why can't every shopping trip end so well?
