Self Checkout with Coupons

Has anyone tried to self checkout with coupons that provide overage? I have the Dove $1.50/2 and $2off J&J Q and am curious how this would work? Does it prompt the attendant to verify coupon amount?

I will NEVER do self-checkout at WM again. I did it once, not knowing. I had about 80 q's. A complete and utter nightmare is all I can say. Out of 80 q's, I ended up giving about 12 items back. The machine wouldn't scan the q's, so the asst. mgr. came over and tried. When he couldn't get them to work, they called the mgr. OMG, what a mess. It took about 30 minutes or so check out. Never again.

I have had a hard time with the self checkout.. but it wasn't as bad as the above post. But, I have great transactions too. Depends on the person that comes to help if it doesn't want to take the coupons. The biggest problem I have is when it doesn't register that I put the coupons in.. grrr.

I don't use self checkout with q's anymore. Too much of a hassle. Usually they won't scan and the cashier working the checkouts gets snippy.

I did the self-checkout thing once with about 30 Q's. I will NEVER do it again. I had a lot more than 30 items, more like 70. So, after everything has been scanned, I start scanning the Q's. The first 3 or 4 go through w/o a hitch. The next few either wouldn't scan or when I would go to "deposit" them in the bin, they wouldn't be recognized as having been put in there. So, I would lose $ on it. Seveal people came over to help. Suddenly, it just froze. The manager tried to unfreeze it, but it wouldn't. So, I had to go to a different register and start all over again. And, it was raining! My DH said "I told you the self-checkout was no faster". I could have went "spider-monkey" on him.

I will go though the self checkout but not with a lot of coupons. It takes up to much time and as one of the above posted it is a limit of 12. I would never go through with more than 15 coupons. Especially knowing how bad walmart is with coupons.

I've used up to 15 coupons and no problem, is the 12 limit something new? Or perhaps, different stores do different things. I did notice last time that if I had more than coupon that was the same as another one, it would beep. It must flag more than one of the same coupon. Our Walmarts DO NOT give any overage whatsoever, coupon beeps. Other than that, I haven't had any big problems.

Thanks! I was wondering about this the last time I was at Wal-Mart. I decided just to go through a regular check-out line just to be on the safe side....glad to see I made the right decision.

DH won't shop with me if i insist on the self checkout. He get so mad and a friend of ours works the front end and gives him a hard time. I just stand there and laugh. It's. So when I'm there and use q's it's a no go with self checkout.

I tried using self-checkout with coupons for the first time a couple of weeks ago. It was a nightmare. Only had about 10 coupons. Scanner wouldn't read most of them. Cashier came over to help and was very snippy. Won't do it again. In fact, I just plain avoid Walmart if possible. Their coupon policies are so inconsistent.

I've used the self checkouts when I don't have many Q's or I have cat's...just because it has Ingles logo does not mean I have to use it there. This just cuts down on my blood pressue going up

They removed the self check-outs at the two stores I frequent. So disappointed as no one used them and checking out was so quick and easy!

self check with q's

Hi everyone,

I really like going through the self check with q's. I think there is a 40 q limit at Wal-Mart, after that a cashier has to do them for you? Not sure. But if they're nice there is a screen that they can log into and do the q's pretty fast....that is if they're in a good mood.
Anyway, if the machine keeps saying 'please scan your coupon' and it's stuck, reach over to where your receipt comes out, and push the arrow that's pointing towards you. That will roll out a little bit of blank paper from the receipt roll. Tear it off and drop it in like it's a coupon. I've done this too many times to count. No one has ever told me to stop. That's how one of the cashiers fixed it for me. You might have to fold the paper and stick it in there.

You can probably tell that I'm a die hard self check fan!

I hope this helps, thanks for reading!

I did self check out with 2 q's that provided overage. They beeped and the lady had to come over and scan them for me. I didn't have any problems, she scanned them and gave me the overage on them, letting it pay for my other merchandise. I am guessing it is a YMMV thing, though corporate policy says that the customer gets the overage.

I look at the self checkout lanes as semi-express lanes. I can't imagine trying to go through one with more than 15-20 coupons. I learned the hard way not to try to go through it with more than about that many items either. If I have cartfull, I should go through a regular lane. Insisting on doing the self-check with a full cart is generally inconsiderate. The one time I did try it, there was no one waiting for any of the 4 machines. By the time I was finished every machine was being used and there was a line. I felt horrible.

I also think it's wrong to use the self check machines if you need any kind of price adjust or with coupons that require a price to be entered (B1G1 free types) as those require the cashier's assistance. It's one thing to end up needing help when you didn't think you would. It's another thing to go through a self service lane knowing that you will indeed need assistance. But that's just my opinion.

I do appreciate getting to go through the self check stations with coupons though. Like a previous poster, I like not having to explain that just because it has Target's logo on it doesn't mean it is a target only coupon. See right there....it says manufacturer's coupon. It was just printed from the target site.

I won't go to self check-out with coupons. I've heard horror stories where thieves put in plain pieces of paper and scan their coupons over and over while depositing plain paper into the slot. If I happen to be the next shopper to use the lane and there's a problem with my coupons that I've already dropped and they open the box, it terrifies me just to thinking,

what will they say if they see all those pieces of paper that are not even mine? How can I prove I didn't put those paper there? I may be livid myself if I see that!

I'd rather be inconvinienced and go to a regular cashier who I can give my coupons. In case there's a problem, I know the coupons I've handed her.

The local Walmart removed the self-checkouts and the McD's is no longer there. They used the space to build more registers and expand the entrance.

I miss those checkout machines already.

Self checkout is great for a few items, but coupons are sometime a hassle. If I have more than a few coupons I got to the regular checkout. I have had a few coupons not want to scan at self-checkout even for the workers. Half the time they suspend my transaction and scan all the coupons at the place where they monitot the self-checkout. The coupns always got through that way. I have not figured out why certain coupons do not work at self checkout but will work at a regular register.

My worst self checkout experience didn't have anything to do with coupons, just a sale at a local grocery store on eggs that was limit 2 dozen per person. No big deal, I bought set of 2 with with some other stuff at the pharmacy counter with my meds and went back to buy another 2 sets of 2 and got stuck behind the old couple from heck in the self checkout lane. They were buying lots & lots of the eggs and had the 2 per order figured out, but had never used self check out before. Both of them were trying to help each other out and would end up hitting the wrong buttons somehow. Then when they got it right, they thought the machine had to be feed the exact amount due & wouldn't give them change. Give me coupon problems any day over people who don't know how to use the self check out & wouldn't even listen when I tried to explain it them.
