DEAL: The Advantage of Rainchecks

Are you familiar with getting rainchecks when a product you go to shop for is out of stock? This typically is the problem during doubles/triples, but it can happen at any time you are shopping.
Harris Teeter, as I noted in the previous post, is having a great sale on Pepsi products.  While re-organizing my coupons I came across an old raincheck that allowed me 5 cases for only $1.88!  Luckily the rainchecks at Harris Teeter NEVER EXPIRES.
I was able to get five 12-packs of various flavors for only $3.76.  How did it get that low? Well the Pepsi is buy two get three free, he just adjusted the raincheck and sale by giving me two off the total price. It pays to check out at customer service when you have a quirky order!
The one I found was dated from two years ago or more. I double checked with the manager and he rang the items up for me with no questions or problems. Most other stores may have up to a 90 day expiration clause – so be sure to check your store’s policy.


  1. I think you should tell people how to make a comment because everyone is not user savvy and will not know how to make a comment.

  2. Could you give some ideas as to how
    to leave a comment, i.e. do you have to use a google account? or is it better to choose an identiy.
    An example on your site would be helpful.

  3. No you can just sign in/comment using the NAME option, you don't have to have URL to use it.
    Thanks for the feedback and I hope the comment box under the posts will be easier for everyone.
