    I went to Giant and spent 29.98 on the General Mills deal. I used a total of 18.00 in coupons after doubling, but I didn’t get the 7.00 instant saving. The customer service manager said it has to be at least 20.00 after coupons. It also states it on my sales flyer, (All minimum spend requirements must be met after all discounts and coupons have been subtracted from order) It was a bummer, but I still got a pretty good deals.

      Patty -

      Two questions:

      1. Which Giant did you shop at ?
      2. Was your final total ?

      Also, just really curious, where does your ad say this at? Our ad doesn’t say anythign about $20 after discounts or coupons on the page. Are you shopping Giant PA or another Giant? I am not sure if you saw my post about this?

      I have become a firm believer that the total transaction amount bill has to be over the minimum amount required to spend amount at my stores. I have 3 different Giants within a 5 mile radius and used to always have problems with the amounts coming off like they were supposed to at any given store. Since I started making sure my total amount was over the minimum required for 1 deal, I haven’t had a single problem. I know some stores have zero problems but my Lehigh Valley stores all seem to be consistent on this one.
