     I went to Bingo today in lakewood (yay what do i care what you did, hang on listen to my question  ::))
, now i came across the coffee which was located right when you come in together with all the sale items as seen in the pictures below.
    I was like wow an amazing price so i instantly braced towards the coffee and was ready to tilt half the pile into my cart, but before i did that, another guy with a few jars in his cart says to the employee whats the limit? he says no limit...
      So i go to the register with 10 jars to start, but i couldn't get past the cashiers with my coffee as she rang up some random amount and not the sale price of 10 x $6.99 instead they had a total of $89.90. While the Indian lady says no!! its tax, have you ever bought a product in a grocery? you always pay tax, so i answered tax is not $20 which would make the tax more than 20%. So at that point she didn't know what to do, the manager came and reset all the computers thinking that might help, as there's an error in the system, but no luck either, then they called the supervisor or whom ever who was masbur that .....


   Now my question is;
  What do you see written on the sign and explain your reasoning.

Ok, now what else do you see written on the sign?
 Funny they use the lingo "limited 2 members only"

 I read the sign the same way you read the sign. So I'm not crazy!

It's a typo.

Limit 2.

Members Only.

What happened when you tried only 2? How about 4?

Well explained. But I read "limited 2" as sale is limited to members only. How could limited 2 mean only 2 per person. And not only that, they went and highlighted it to look like one sentance.

 Limit of 2 per member. Not understood from the way they worded the sign.
 Now they reciept shows $6.99 sale price and so does the checkout show $6.99 sale price, but if you do your math then right away you will realize they have something rung up wrong.
 Many people had between 2-5 jars, to bad they will pay the regular price and not the sale price, they will never know that they're not being charged the sale price!
 They should Definitely fix it.

Just came back from bingo

  • the stupidest thing on earth, I gave them my bingo member card @ checkout, and she tells me "its a Brooklyn card doesn't work here", so I went to register for a Lakewood card, I get the same card, now I have 2 identical cards in my pocket 1 only works in BP and the other in Lakewood


"I never saw so much food in my life" the shopper next to me.

Lol, I ended up reading most of that English, Yiddish/Hebrew board.
 You guys must have been pretty bored substituting all the English for the DDF lingo. ;)

     I went to Bingo today in lakewood (yay what do i care what you did, hang on listen to my question  ::))
, now i came across the coffee which was located right when you come in together with all the sale items as seen in the pictures below.
    I was like wow an amazing price so i instantly braced towards the coffee and was ready to tilt half the pile into my cart, but before i did that, another guy with a few jars in his cart says to the employee whats the limit? he says no limit...
      So i go to the register with 10 jars to start, but i couldn't get past the cashiers with my coffee as she rang up some random amount and not the sale price of 10 x $6.99 instead they had a total of $89.90. While the Indian lady says no!! its tax, have you ever bought a product in a grocery? you always pay tax, so i answered tax is not $20 which would make the tax more than 20%. So at that point she didn't know what to do, the manager came and reset all the computers thinking that might help, as there's an error in the system, but no luck either, then they called the supervisor or whom ever who was masbur that .....


   Now my question is;
  What do you see written on the sign and explain your reasoning.








2 x 6.99 + 8 x 9.49 = 89.90.

Except that the sign says the regular price is $12.99 each.
Once the game is over, the king and the pawn go back in the same box.
