Pretty darn close to being autograph worthy...

At least I think I am.
 
So.
 
Here's what I did.
 
Prepare yourself.
 
It is going to be glorious.
 
I.
 
Jenny.
 
Matlock.
 
Used an electronic coupon at the grocery store.
 
GASP!
 
Right?
 
Seriously.
 
I did.
 
All by myself.
 
I.
 
Used.
 
An.
 
Electronic coupon off my smart phone.
 
Is that what they're called anyway?
 
Electronic?
 
I dunno.
 
It doesn't really matter what they're called...
 
And I can't really be expected to have total cyber-brilliance at my age.
 
But, the fact remains.
 
I used a coupon from my iphone...
 
AND it worked!
 
AND I saved $1.40.
 
AND I only looked moderately dumb while I did it.
 
What a day, I tell ya.
 
Pretty darn close to being autograph worthy...
 
RIGHT?
 
Feel free to send a self-addressed stamped envelope and I will sign and send one of those old-fashioned, not cool, actual PAPER coupons back to you with my autograph.
  
Just in case.
 
Since I mastered this huge feat...
 
who knows what I'll go on to accomplish next!!!!!
 
Blush.
 
Sigh.

I've never done that. I don't know how. You are a genius. I bow before you.

Love,
Janie

Jeanie said...

I did that....once, with some help from the clerk who was checking me out, so I understand your pride in yourself. There is no telling what we will conquer next. :)

hugs,
Linda

Viki said...

Wow! Amazing! You are brilliant!!

Leovi said...

Yes, courage is necessary for that feat!

Ms. A said...

Heck, I'd have to get an iPhone and learn how to use that first. You're miles and miles ahead of me!

Melinda said...

Awesome!

Congratulations!

You did it!

:o)

Anita said...

Oh Jenny! I've been wanting that experience since I got my iPhone. You have encouraged me to be brave; to go into those uncharted waters. Congratulations!

Esther Joy said...

Congrats! You're ahead of me. I haven't done that yet!

I always marvel at the 30-somethings ahead of me at the checkout line who flash their phone and get discounts. I've never attempted it. As someone who needs a 12-year-old to help me find wallpaper and set the clock on my phone (blush), I am duly impressed with your accomplishment!!

Sue said...

Impressive. You have officially arrived!

=)

lissa said...

sounds so impressive, like it's the future. but did you paid with your phone too? I read in some places, you can pay with your phone, though I don't really want to depend so much on my phone considering it if gets lost, I might get lost too.

hope you have a sweet day.

edenhills said...

I'm thoroughly impressed!

Splendid Little Stars said...

woo hoo! Jenny! It's a red letter day!
(admitting that I have yet to do this!)

Rita said...

OMG! I didn't even know there was such a thing! Bravo, Woman! :)

I'm so glad to hear I'm not the only one who approaches these tech break-throughs as if I'm being ask to jump hurdles. I don't have a smart phone yet and I don't carry my tablet everywhere so the electronic coupon thing is still on the scary horizon for me...

Amy said...

Hehe! Good job! I don't even know how to do that and my husband is all Techno Geek. You are amazing, my friend.

Granny-Guru said...

Awesome! I didn't know you could. How did you find the coupon? A few months ago I sold a book using Paypal when a customer asked if I took credit cards (I didn't). She then asked if I had a Paypal account (I do). Then, she proceeded to pay for the book to my PayPal account. It's a whole new world.

Busy Bee Suz said...

Oh, I LOVE THIS!!!!! You are brilliant and very GREEN too.
XOXO

Pat Tillett said...

Good for you Jenny!
If it's a current and high value coupon, and it's something I want. Then yeah...
