Tip of the Day Tuesday: The Power of a Raincheck

Since there are so many great sales right now, I thought I’d remind you of the importance of asking for a raincheck if a store is out of an item you’re looking for. As long as the ad does not specify “quantities limited” or “while supplies last” most stores will give you a raincheck. It certainly doesn’t hurt to ask!

The best part about rainchecks is that they are usually not specific to a certain store location and they often do not have an expiration date. So, you can wait until a really great coupon comes out to pair with your raincheck or go ahead and order the coupons you had thought about ordering but didn’t because you didn’t know if you would get them in time. Of the stores that I shop at, the only one I know that does put an expiration date on their rainchecks is Target.
