Why Did I Beep?

This morning I purchased four boxes of Rice Krispies Treats on sale for $2.50 each ($10).

I had (2) coupons for $1/2 Rice Krispies Treats and (2) $3 Register Rewards.

So 4 items and 4 coupons.

I handed over the Register Rewards first and they went through but the manufacturer's coupons would not. The cashier (team lead) tried to back them out, put in the manufacturer's coupons and then the Register Rewards. Still it was a no go.

She pushed through my 2 Register Rewards for a $6 discount manually so it all came out OK (then got my $5 Register Reward back).

I was wondering if I did something incorrectly. I understood that they coupons had to = the number of products and that a coupon off of 2 items still counted as one for the sake of number to product count . . .

If it means anything this store has the newer registers with the fancy screens.

Many thanks for any insight that can be offered.

Since your Q was for $1/2items the coupon automatically attaches to both items. You needed two filler items. You used too many MQ per the number of items.

Thank you for the clarification. I had tried to learn about this before but thought it was litterally one paper coupon for each product. In fact when I did the Lysol deal a few weeks ago I bought six of them. I had 3 $1/2 coupons and 2 Register Rewards -- So 6 items and 5 coupons.

In that case they put in manufactuer's coupons first and then the Register Rewards beeped. When they backed everything out and did Register Rewards first it went through . . . So I thought this was similar. But I was wrong.

Thank you again.

Coupons for $/2 attach to 2 items, making 1 Q count as 2. So:
$1/2 Q needs 2 boxes
$1/2 Q needs 2 boxes
RR #1 needs 1 item
RR #2 needs 1 item
Total items needed= 6

Each item you have can only have 1 Q credited towards it's purchase, so with $1/2 Q's, you have to buy 3 items to use a RR as a coupon.

HTH!;

Register logic is this ~ if you're using x/2 or x/3 MQs, make sure to give them LAST just before any WAGc. If you plan to use RRs, give them first so that each RR attaches to one item. when you give the x/2 or x/3 MQs, it attaches to the rest that have not attached to RR. ANY WAGc does not affect the coupon tally.

I've done this for years now and have saved from buying fillers if I have Qs good for multiple items.

right now, many stores are using the Smart Registers so I don't know how this will affect scanning of coupons. I hope we're ones of those who get these SRs last. I have heard it is anti-couponer.

Thank you everyone. I almost had it. I got the one coupon per item part but did not understand that the $/2, $/3, etc., coupons attached to the items as well. I now understand that I needed two fillers. I would have gladly bought the $.15 notebook (I understand that the Walgreens coupons do not count in the coupon count) but truly made a mistake.

But I have learned with your help
