Don’t forget to ask for rain checks on sale and/or advertised items, even if you plan to return or visit another store. Most rain checks are good for at least 30 days – this will give you extra time to perhaps do more researching on a big purchase item(s) or look for cheaper prices elsewhere! Plus, your rain check guarantees that you can return to that store and purchase the item(s) at a later date.
In addition, if you decide to visit another store location to purchase sale items. Remember, You can still return to the store that issued the rain check to buy more of the same item even after the sale date. I use this savings tip a lot at my local grocery chain to stock up on brands I eat regularly (when the sale item is not in stock).
A WIN WIN Savings TIP!
