At Central, I kept the [same day only] redeemable vehicle parking coupon in my pocket and conveniently forgot to produce it during billing. A couple of days later, at Reliance Timeout, I made it a point to keep the coupon along with the cash in my wallet and since I pay for most things with cash, the first thing I saw during billing was the coupon.

Generally speaking, if you usually pay with cash keep the redeemable vehicle parking coupon along with the cash in your wallet and if you usually pay with a card — debit or credit — wrap the redeemable vehicle parking coupon around the card.

This way, you simply won’t forget to redeem the coupon.

What do you think?
