Getting to Know the Coupon
1) First of all, It is very important that you know not make Copies of coupons. This is illegal and considered fraudulent.
2) Each coupon has a unique code. When you have your coupons, make sure that each coupon has a unique code, otherwise, it won’t go through.
3) Pay attention to specific coupon wording and size restrictions. If the coupon says it is for a certain product, make sure you are buying that product. If the coupon states Any, then you can purchase any variety.
Some coupons will specify sizes or will exclude trial sizes. Make sure to pay special attention to this since your coupon will beep at the register.
The wording One Per Purchase can be confusing. This means you can use one coupon per product bought. For instance, if you buy 3 jars of Ragu you can use 3 coupons.
The term One Per Transaction means only one coupon per transaction. You don’t see this one to often though.
4) UPC Codes: These are the numbers located under the scannable barcode. There are only a couple of numbers that pertain to couponers.
If the first number is a 5 = it will automatically double if your store allows doubling, even if the coupon says do not double.
If the first number is a 9 = it won’t double at all.
10th and 11th place numbers = The 10th and 11th place numbers indicate the dollar amount of the coupon. If the coupon is a BOGO coupon, there will be either a 14 or 01 in that place. If it says 01, then the coupon is only attached to one of the products and you can use a second dollar off coupon for the other product. If it says 14, then the coupons is attached to both coupons and no other coupons may be used.
