Did you know that your checker should be adjusting your coupon to match the value of the item you are buying?

For example, if you are buying an item that rings up as $0.99 and you have a coupon for $1.00/1- your checker can adjust the value of the coupon to $0.99  so that they don’t give you overage.

At most stores (Target, Walgreens, Walmart) if the coupon value exceeds the value of the item, it makes the register beep- which makes the checker think they need to hurry and reject the coupon. However, this is not the case.  If this happen to you, nicely explain to your checker that you are not expecting overage, but that they should just adjust the value of the coupon to the price of the product. So if it’s a $1/1 coupon and the item is $0.99, then they should be adjusting the coupon to $0.99.

Please print your store policies for help explaining this issue to your checker.
