Question can you use coupons in the self checkout line?

This is probably a dumb question but can you use coupons in the self checkout lines? I tried to do this the other day and it didn't have a button to press for coupons. Maybe I was looking for the wrong button.TIA

Yes you can, you won't see the coupon button at some until you push the pay button.

at my store you don't even have to push pay, then coupons. I think you can do it that way if you want but, you can also just start scanning the coupons as soon as you're done scanning the items. That's what I do. I don't press any buttons between scanning the items and scanning the coupons.

Never seen a button, but you can just scan at ours. Most work, some call the cashier

That would explain why I couldn't find a coupon button . I didn't even try to scan my coupons. Thanks.

The first time I used the Meijer sco i was looking for the coupon button too. Luckily my husband was with and suggested I just scan them and it worked. I was used to kroger where there is a button, so I found the easier process confusing.

Yes. They have a slot to put them in after scanning them... SOmetimes its better to go to a cashier though, because they might not scan or ring up wrong.

Any time I have used coupons at the self check, someone has to come over to help me anyway. The register has trouble with high dollar coupons, internet coupons, all coupons I give it. I figure if someone has to help me, I might as well go to a regular register.

A cashier at the self check out told me they always have to come and put thru the meal box coupons. (?)
Seems silly to me since it is supposed to be a faster way to check out.

I always crash the the u-scan lane with my coupons. I was told to see a cashier just to make it easier on me. Since, I have had no trouble with coupons (manu or MB). I haven't crashed a register in months.

By the way has anyone in the Avon store noticed the signs hanging above the larger u-scan lanes? It says "NEW" but they have had them for forever and I have never been able to use those lanes without cashier help before they crash and move me to another register with a cashier from CS.

Sorry did not mean to seal your thread!

I have not noticed the "new" signs. I do shop the Avon store, but usually shop the Camby store. I don't crash the u-scans, but do usually have to have cashier intervention as they won't take my mealbox coupons. Also, hate the new computer system. I had several cashiers tell me in the past that if my coupons won't scan to enter them in manually. That was helpful because I was usually able to continue without the coupon police having to intervene. Now, it won't let you enter them any more. I had a young cashier tell me they screwed up when they updated the system. I'm pretty sure they meant to make it that way and didn't "screw up".

Lately I've seen a great abundance of people using mass coupons at the self checkouts.

It's much faster, typically more accurate, and less of an inconvenience to the employees and other customers if you just go to a normal check out.

And yes, the self scans do crash frequently... and having to start over is a real pain.

Find a good cashier in a normal lane, and avoid the self scans when using lots of coupons please!

I've recently seen several people with far more than 12 items using the self serve fast scans, and doing 10-15 transactions per trip. This is so disrespectful to people who are waiting behind them.. not just because they're hogging one of the 6 fast scans, but also because they're forcing the cashier assistant to spend an unbelievable amount of time with them fixing deals, changing prices, manually entering coupons, etc.
