Freebies question about "up to XX amount" coupon and overage

Hi! I just had a question. I recently had a problem with a stayfreep roduct, so I called the company and they sent me two coupons for replacements. They are "save up to five dollars on Carefree or Stayfree products", and I wondered if anyone knows how this will work. Does anyone know if it will take the five dollars off, thus giving overage, or if it will just take the actual dollar amount off?

I used the free coupon up to 4.99 that Pantene sent out, and it took off the 4.99, although the product was only about 3.75. I'm curious to see how this works and I could REALLY use the overage, especially if I just used it to buy the pantiliners, since that's about 4.00 overage per Q.

Thanks in advance if anyone knows...I hope you're all having a good weekend!

I really don't think this works the same every time. It's one of those YMMV situations and you just won't know until you do it. Frankly, I think you're better off not taking any chances and just getting a high value item for free.

I agree with BargainMama, you should play it safe and just get a high value item. I really don't think the store would take off the whole $5...the coupon says "up to" not save $5 outright. I used my pantene Q and the amount adjusted automatically.

The store shouldn't give overage on those coupons. Or any that have a place for the store to write in the amount. Dh works at our WM and they just did a training meeting and this was one of the items covered.

Thank you! I appreciate the input, I guess we will be getting the biggest packages I can find under $5.00.

Just a quick update in case anyone else has the same coupons. I did buy the two biggest things I could get that were under the dollar amount of the Qs and it did take off exactly the dollar amount.

However, if anyone ever does have a problem with Stayfree products, they'll send a coupon for a free replacement . When I opened the original package, several of the pads were misshapen, which makes wearing them awkward. Only about 6, but still....
