Cashiers: Krazy Couponers know the checker makes a big difference in the coupon experience. Many find that young, male cashiers fit this description, as they tend to have a more relaxed attitude toward couponing and are excited when customers save big. To avoid lengthy, stressful checkouts, try to bypass those checkers who tend to be meticulous in examining every coupon and are skeptical of rock bottom purchases.
Off-Hours: For short lines, aim for early morning or late at night when there are fewer customers.
Long Lines: While busy lines can mean a longer wait, they have their advantages! Longer lines give shoppers time to finalize planned transactions and get coupons in order. Another great benefit of a long line of customers in front of you is having time to put purchases on the conveyor belt, leaving you free to check prices as they ring up.
Self Check: These are nice for double checking transactions, matching coupons, and not being rushed by a huge line behind. Take time to make sure prices are right, and load your bags how you like.
