Rookie Mistakes!! UGH

I'm fairly new to all this coupon combining and boy did I make some mistakes today! Thought I had all my ducks in a row but apparently didn't read the "small print" for RR.

So, I had 2 coupons for the ProGlide or Venus shaving systems and I used both but the RR was limited to one per offer! So if I checked out a second time would I have gotten the offer again??

Basically the same thing happened for the Herbal Essence shampoo, had 2 coupons, used them and only 1 RR printed for $1.

The deals were still both pretty good but I could have done better, right??

Yeh, if you're going to do more than one deal for a product, you have to do it in separate transactions. And, if you don't know already, you don't want to use the same RR for purchasing the second or subsequent items. Usually it won't print another if you use the one you got for the same product (or company).

Hang in there. Wags is hard to learn couponing on, but once you get the hang of them you are set for any other stores!

Ergh just had a few mistakes on my transaction last night. First I accidentally used a RR on an order that I was earning the same RR. THEN I forgot to have them scan a wags coupon for me. So now I have to ask if I can retroactively use the wags coupon or if I have to return the stuff. I wish wags was simpler...

It happens...even to those of us who have done it awhile. It's just one of those things that comes with learning this, mistakes are bound to be made. You'll do great next time!

Don't beat yourself up over it...you still got some good deals even with the little mistakes. It's a learning process, and you just got a valuable lesson. Also, you can always return the products and try again (although not sure if you would get the coupons back)....something to keep in mind if this happens again. Chin up!
