What is stacking coupons?
Stacking coupons is using 2 coupons on one item. This is only allowed if the 2 coupons you are using is a store coupon and a manufacture coupon. You can not use 2 manufacture coupons on one item.
The most popular store for stacking coupons is Target. You can use one Target coupon and one manufacture coupon per item.
What if my coupon says one per purchase?
This is the most confusing wording to cashiers (Bless their heart!). Purchase and Transaction are 2 different things. A purchase is an individual item you pay for. A transaction is your purchase of said items. One per purchase means that you can only use one coupon on one item. It doesn’t mean you have to pay for your items separately. A UPC is also called a proof of purchase. Think of that coupon attaching to that UPC and that is a purchase.
What if my coupon says limit one per transaction?
That means you can only use one of those coupons per your total transaction. If you buy 4 bottles, you can only use one coupon.
What if my coupon says limit four per transaction?
That means you can use 4 of those coupons per your total transaction. If you buy 4 bottles, you can use 4 coupons. If you buy 5 bottles, you can only use 4 coupons.
