Extreme Couponing Tip: Know How to Do Multiple Transactions

Are you looking to roll your Catalinas or do several transactions back to back? Read below for tips on how to make it a smooth process.

Organization
This is the number one way to avoid personal stress and reduce angry glares from the customers lined up behind you. When you have your coupons ready to go and everything in order, things will go faster.

When there’s a line, do one transaction at a time
If you are separating your items into multiple transactions, just put one transaction on the conveyor belt at a time.  If someone jumps in line behind you, just finish your transaction and get in line behind them. When possible, avoid rush hours at the store because smaller lines mean less stress!

Advance Notice
Make sure to give the cashier a heads up that you’ll want to do more than one transaction and ask if that’s okay. They may need to open another line or get extra help, especially if you have a cart full of groceries and a big stack of coupons!

Limit the number
While some stores have a stated limit of transactions per day, try to keep the total low when you can. Usually 3 transactions is the maximum to do at once.
