  1. Stopping by multiple locations for a free sample is really not cool. There is a reason that there is a “one per customer” rule.

    I didn’t know about this promo this morning but I was at Marks buying father’s day gifts and the staff were complaining about all of the “extreme couponers” who would go to multiple locations or try to get multiple pairs. Multiple visits and multiple accounts for samples are the kinds of things that give extreme couponers a bad reputation of being greedy and stingy. It also denies someone else the chance to try this product.

    I’m glad you got your free samples, but perhaps consider visiting only one store next time and letting someone else enjoy the samples too.

    • Wow seriously? Getting one extra each hardly calls for throwing out terms like “greedy and stingy”. I also got this freebie with my husband. We only have one store in our area but if we had another we would have gone to the other location too to grab one more

      People taking advantage of promos like this one are inevitable. I do agree with the principle of what you’re saying about one per customer freebies, or similar samples but don’t think it’s necessary to associate getting multiples with “extreme couponers” in the manner the staff was. People, couponers or not do go to multiple locations and get multiple samples.

      Personally, I don’t think we went overboard by getting 2 extra but that’s my opinion. DBF’s brothers could not make it to the store in the morning and asked us to grab a couple extra if we could so that is what we did. That is all.

  2. Personally I think going to other locations for samples, freebies and promos is fine as it’s your own time and technically you’re a new customer when you go to that other location

  3. would you please tell me where i can find the gummies coupon? thank you.

      Hi Debbie,

      The gummies will be free after a mail in rebate. I found mine at IGA but also spotted it at Save on Foods and Safeway.
