My Cool Walmart Experience: $5 Gift Card

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?
