If a business refuses to honor a coupon or special, do you still shop there on that visit?
If you go into a business with a coupon or that has an advertised special and they will not accept it, do you shop there at that visit anyway? I'm not asking if you boycott them for life, just on that visit. My policy is no. If they used a discount to get me in the door and then won't give me the discount, then I am not rewarding them by shopping there anyway. It's usually fast food places, there will be a printed coupon that they won't honor for some reason. Quizno's was the worst, they'd have a coupon in the paper or online and when we'd get there they'd have a sign on the counter saying they'd already fulfilled their quota of that coupon and were no longer accepting them. I let the manager know, politely, that I came in because of the coupon and since they aren't honoring it, I am taking my business to (name of competitor).
