I Hate Fine Print
Even though I still have a cold I managed to get to Fry's grocery store because they have been advertising their $10 off a $100 gift card purchase and the deal is over today, I think...I can't really think straight with a cold. The commercial and the ad say mix and match, buy $100 worth of gift cards and get $10 off up to $50 total rewards. Since I was planning on buying some gift cards anyway I picked out $200 worth. I bought a little bit more than I had planned to reach that $200 mark. At the cash register the clerk told me that only one of my cards qualified for the deal. So it turns out I didn't get any money back and I made a special trip for nothing. Thanks a lot Fry's. Why do they have to make shopping more complicated? Christmas shopping is already frustrating enough. I am annoyed enough to go shop at Safeway for a while until I forget that I am mad at Fry's. Maybe I'll send them an email to complain. To my family members who are reading this...sorry to spoil the surprise but you'll be getting gift cards this year. Who wants the $50 for Applebees?
