Every been disappointed that something you want that is on sale is not available when you get to the store?
I was in that situation today when I saw that a body wash we need to use for my son was on sale 2 for $15 (saving $5). I spoke to one of the aisle assistants to see if there was any more and she replied ” No sorry we are awaiting a delivery”. I was a little eager to find out when the delivery was coming and when the sale ended and kindly let me know “just ask for a rain check at the counter”, if you cannot make it back before the sale ends or we dont have stock just ask the cashier”.
I have to say I have heard of rain checks but never asked for one. So as we were having our items scanned the cashier kindly filled in the card I need next time I shop. I must remember this and ask more often some items on sale are excluded from rain checks but it cannot hurt to ask.
I hope this is useful to someone especially as the holiday season is about to start.
