Question Why does it matter the "order you give coupons"?

I am a newbie so please forgive my Q ignorance.
Why does it matter the order that you give coupons to a cashier.
Can someone explain in easy to understand steps why it matters and is it that way at all stores.

TIA for your assistance. I really appreciate it.

Well, I know at Walgreen's your manufacturer's coupons will beep some times if you give the store coupons first. Also, I give my BOGO cpns last instead of first because if it is coded for two products, it will beep if you used a $$/1 coupon on the one you have to buy. In this case when the BOGO cpn beeps I can usually just say "That coupon is for a free one" and they override it. This bogo issue happens at my Farm Fresh too, so I do it this way there too. So, to avoid any problems, I just give my BOGO coupons last everywhere I go unless I am told to do different.

At CVS, I will give the x/xx (example 4 off 20) first to make sure I am at the right amount, that is the only order that I go in.

As ToHimIpray said, at Wags if you give the store coupons first, it might cause the manufacturer coupons to beep.

I don't have a set way to give them, although many people do. My rule of thumb is 1st Manu Qs, then RRs or Store Qs.

I give the largest Qs first and sometimes give the RRs first or second, if they are high-dollar, just to make sure they go through and I'm not stuck paying a lot more than I planned.
Also, if you give the store Q last, it makes it more likely that you're going to get overage if there is any.



Here's an example of a beeping situation from Sunday that was caused by the order of the coupons.
Got 1 Aviva meter 14.99 and 1 russell stover candy (to eat up the penny extra from the coupons).
Had 1 $10 mq and 1 $5 store Q.
I did it both ways.
If I gave the mq first, it went through with no problems. Cashier put in $10. Then the store Q went through fine.

When I gave the store Q first, the system would not take the MQ when the cashier put in $10. She had to put in $9.99 in order for it to go through since $15 was higher than the price of the item. She was able to do that on this coupon because it was an "up to $10.00" coupon. Most coupons they won't adjust down like that.
