Do you use reusable shopping bags?

#1
I just got one of the Target gift cards that comes with a "tote bag". I was thinking about using it, it might be nice to save $0.05 every time I go to Target. Especially since I tend to do a little shopping at least 3-4 days a week after work.

What about the rest of you, do you bring your own bags to Target?

I keep one in my car for anything I need to pick up after work. It took a while to remember to bring it in but it's second nature now.

Haha, the environmental piece isn't a big deal for me, I'm in it for the savings...
As a former cashier, I hated when guests brought reusable bags. Sure they saved the 5 cents, but you greatly. slow. down. my. line..

Lol. I have no problem with Team Members using them. It's the guests. ;)

I have no problem with the reusable bags. It doesn't slow me down that much. And the majority of the guests will go down and bag themselves once they get their stuff unloaded.

Should a cashier give the 0.05 credit if the guest buys only a couple of items and doesn't use any bag?

Nope. It was put in the rules when the 5 cent thing started that is was only good for guest with reusable bags, not those who choose not to use them. I think it might be too easy to abuse if that were the case. "Oh, sir, you don't want a bag for your sofa bed or your dresser or your table set? $0.15 off for you!"

its .05 who cares. I tell the cashiers to do it if they want.
Call me petty, but coupon rules are something I follow. People abuse them too much. I used to not care about the $0.05 off either, but when someone asked me for $0.05 off their gum when they bought it b/c they didn't want a bag, I drew the line. I now enforce it for every guest, every time. I think its less confusing for the guests if every cashier follows the same rules, not just do what they want.

This is a joke thread correct? You guys are not really excited over saving a nickel right?
Multiply that nickle be a couple hundred trips to the store every year and it adds up.

Same mentality with coupons. Save a little here and there and it gets to be a rather large amount over the course of a year. My wife has become quite the expert at coupons and can routinely save 75-90% on every shopping trip.
