Take a few minutes on Wednesday, December 1, 2010 to go to the corner market, which around here usually means the 7-Eleven, CVS, or Wags, and look at today’s Orlando Sentinel.

If you are lucky enough to live within 5 miles or so of an Albertsons, there should be a $5.00/$50.00 coupon on the front page of their insert. This coupon is valid 12/3-5 (Friday, Saturday and Sunday).

If you are tired of driving to the corner market just to purchase the Orlando Sentinel, why not sign up for home delivery (at up to 65% OFF)?

Read this POST from the other day for all the details.

You might be asking yourself, “How did Mark find out about this coupon?”. Here is how I did it, I went to the customer service counter at the Albertsons near Windermere, and asked for the form to fill out so that I could receive the weekly newspaper insert. I filled out the form right there, and THEY FAXED it to Boise, ID. It takes 2-3 weeks or so to receive the first copy. USUALLY the insert will arrive in our physical mailbox on either Monday or Tuesday. Sometimes it is not there until Wednesday. Which ever insert is in the Orlando Sentinel, that is the insert that I receive.

Happy Thanksgiving.

Blown tire = Mark vs Wal-Mart Auto Dept.

If you have been following my personal FB page you already know that I have been groveling, begging, hinting really big time, etc how tires for my car would be a great upcoming birthday gift.

Well, yesterday one of the tires finally gave out as I was pulling into a parking spot. I can change my own tires, as will both of our children know how to do before they get behind the wheel, even with a learner’s permit. But I went to get out the lug wrench, and I remembered exactly where it was, at home, in the garage. Say hello to my AAA card.

The mechanic came out and chuckled because it seems I am not the only guy that forgets to put back his lug wrench after using it for some other unintended use.

Hunting for tires. All of the quotes I was getting over the phone were in the mid $200s FOR TWO TIRES! MOUNTED & Out the door. Then I called Wal-Mart. They were just under $100 LESS. The real fun began when I took the car in to Wal-Mart. The mechanic could not figure out how I was quoted the price I was quoted. He tried to replicate the $163.17 several different was. He finally told me that “Sir, the cheapest tire we have in your size is 97 bucks”. Good, please have your manager meet me in the shop.

All I have to say is Thank God that the employee I had talked to was nearby. The manager started to tell me that there was no way I was quoted the price I was quoted. The employee spoke up and said mentioned that the tires are $57 something, I forget the exact figure at this point. The dept manager was confused. The employee took her notes out of the trash and thank God she had written the proper size, because she typed in the wrong size when she was quoting me. 1 digit saved me over $70.00 had she typed the proper size. It took a few minutes of being POLITE yet firm, and listening to “We can’t honor this” to asking for the store manager. They got a person claiming to be the store manager on the phone, explained what had happened, and then hung up. They are deciding how to handle this. Most likely they called Bentonville. Well, the phone rang a few minutes later and all I heard was, are you sure, and OK. Next works were, “Do it, at the price she gave him”. For whatever reason the employee had written everything down, stems, road warranty, balancing, etc. The manager could not believe how all of a sudden she was very thorough. We left to go eat dinner.

My car was in the lot waiting for me when we got back. The cashier rang me up and it came to just under $233 I told her that the price was wrong and that it should be $163 something. She was VERY confused. Called the dept manager, NOT the same person as earlier. Great. Explained over again after being told everyone, employee and manager were on break. Would not call the store manager. After 15 minutes or so, the employee who gave me the phone quote came back from dinner. She mentioned her notes and they were still confused. Eventually the original dept manager returned from her break, and settled the entire ordeal. The employees were stunned as to what had took place.

No, I am not defending Wal-Mart, because God knows they has some surly customer service people, but in this one incident, Wal-Mart DID make good on their quote. I just thank God that the employee owned up to the error.
