One Coupon per customer means that you can only use 1 per shopping trip.

Hope this helps!
Thank you,
I'm just assuming you all have multiple coupons and are using them on one item. Trying to figure out the lingo. My husband is thinking what the heck is she doing now...

The woman in c/s at my Pathmark just told me theres a Shop Rite opening approx August a reasonable distance from my house. I am so excited. I've been wanting to shop at SR but theres not one near me. WooHoo can't wait. Now I have to start reading all the Shop Rite threads to learn. Thanks for all the tips.

I have a question for all the SR pros....
In the Extreme Couponing episode the lady from PA shops @ Shoprite and gives the cashier all her coupons and once they were all scanned then gives her the Price Plus card.

Is that the way to get the best discounts? Does it matter if I give them the card before they begin ringing stuff or not??

im no pro, but in my experience it has been ymmv.
the high value qs will come off properly Before the price plus discount is applied.
however each store seems to vary on whether or not the lower value qs will double without the price plus card.

the only time it has benefitted me is when a sale item has a q for higher value.

example.
excedrin reg 2.49
price plus sale price 1.74

coupon $2.00 off 1

item scans for 2.49, coupon scans for 2.00 and doesnt adjust down, price plus card takes discount off in that order. = .26 overage
be sure to not have a final negative balance. buy something to apply the overage to.

however if you have coupons that need to double on that same order it can become a mess as they may not double until you scan your card depending on your store. if you hand them in first and then scan the price plus card they may have problems doubling properly.

I'm very new at this and very excited

I decided to try this and researched a bit a couple of weeks back. I managed to get : Minute Maid OJ, Purex, 2 Boxes Pasta, 2 Classico Sauces, Cheeze Doodles, Raisin Bran, and two other items which I can't remember now - for $8.11 !!!! I was sooooooo psyched!

Didn't do quite that well this week because I picked up the wrong size Herr's But it was still a pretty good deal.

Anyway, my question is this -

Is there a limit on the number of like items/like coupons? This week I used four of the Best Life margarine coupons on four margarines and the cashier didn't bat an eyelash ... For some reason I thought four was the limit. But I noticed on Extreme Couponing they are using like a hundred of the same one Does ShopRite have a limit? Like if you bought coupons from ebay have 10 or 20 coupons for something that is ending up really cheap or free can you do that????

Thanks so much for any help - I am thrilled to have found this forum!!!

ShopRite has limits -- check the ad and check at your store (the stores can have their own policies). Often the sale price will only apply to 4 of the same item (so if juices are on sale, you can usually get 4 of a particular flavor AND 4 of a different flavor, and 4 more of yet a different flavor, etc, etc). Most stores have a policy to only double 4 of the same coupon. But I have found that a lot of cashiers interpret that you can only USE 4 of the same coupon (regardless of doubling) and no amount of talking will change that cashier's mind, so I usually just keep it to 4 of the same coupon in an order.

Note: sometimes the sales are "must buy 2" or "must buy 5", really crazy limits. So it's always something to watch at ShopRite.

HTH!

I love all of the advice. I learned (the hard way) about watching that all of your coupons get used. I had a $3 from the Dollar Days deal that didn't get registered. Crumbling the coupons is a good idea.

My shoprite, that has only been open about 5 months, has just started limiting the SCO to 25 items or less, this made me very angry because I like doing it myself!! The attendant at the lanes could tell I was mad, she sees me there all the time checking myself out.

I know this is an older thread but I just wanted to complain a bit about my shoprite trip today. I am usually very easy going and don't complain but today I had both a limit issue and a coupon issue. I had 4 coupons for the chinet plates so I bought 4 and handed over all 4 coupons in my large stack. I realized when I got home only 3 were scanned. The cashier was new and needed a lot of help so not really anyones fault but stinky lost $1.10. Then the other issue was with the resolve. I tried to buy 4 of the regular and 3 of the lemon. The cashier called a key over because no coupon for any would scan. She tried to tell me bc there was shout in the resolve that it didn't qualify and also I could only buy 4 all together didn't matter the different ones. I gave up on trying to get more than 4 even tho they were different but I didnt back down on the coupons because they clearly stated on any resolve product. I did win that battle. Ok just thought I would share my frustration

Hello everyone,

Click on the Coupons menu here in afullcup.com and at the bottom of it you will find a list of several clipping services. Some also purchase on eBay. I haven't used either method, so I can't offer an opinion. I just get a few extra papers when the deals are very very good. Welcome aboard!

Hi!!

Your posts are really helpful!! Thanks for taking the time to do this. I stated this recently and the biggest problem I have is to find a good newspaper to get the coupons. I lie in NJ and I bought a newspaper recently and there were no coupons there. Does anyone know a good one I can buy??? Thanks!!

Great, I learned the hard way about the coupon policy. Last week my coupons didnt double because I did not give her my store card at the begining of the transaction. I ended up paying more than I had planned for. The CS manager said I could not double anything before my savings card was scanned. Bummmer. I could of saved $12 extra dollars that trip. Please pass it on.....at the start of your trip give them your card.
