I have 3 coupons - 1 for $1.50 off, 1 for $1 off, and 1 for $2 off Huggies. All the coupons say: Limit one coupon per purchase as specified above - not sure what above they are talking about.

The coupons are from different sources - 1 from newspaper, 1 from Target and 1 from a Huggies mailing.

Can I use all 3 coupons on 1 package of Huggies - as long as it is for the correct size, jumbo or larger?

Or, can you only use one coupon per item, so I'd have to buy 3 packages to use all 3 coupons.

Help!! I've never been much of a coupon shopper, so I don't know all the rules, and the fine print on the coupon just confuses me. Hehe.

Since all three are manufacturer's coupons, you'd have to buy three packages to use all three coupons. There are instances where you could use more than one coupon for one item but there must be a specific store coupon that DOES NOT say manufacturer's coupon on it. Although you have one that says Target on it, stores like that still consider it be a special manufacturer's coupon that can only be used at that store.

However, when you get to the drug store type places like CVS, they have coupons that are actually store coupons and not manufacturer's ones. Those you could use with a regular coupon. And don't let them tell you that you can't. They try to make up their own rules but it's completely legit to use them together as long as the combined discount doesn't exceed the cost of the item.

On a side note, when it comes to BOGO coupons, you can use that one plus a manufacturer's coupon. For instance, if you have a coupon, you can use it for one of the items. Then if you also have the BOGO free coupon for those items, you can use that too. HTH

Oh my gosh, REALLY?! I tried to use an in-store coupon at HEB plus a manufacturer's coupon and they told me I couldn't!

The store policies could vary for different companies. If there's any doubt, I'd contact someone on the company's website and ask what their specific policy says. There have been problems with CVS denying the use of both. I never have a problem with the one I go to, but some have had problems. Here's an email CVS sent me about their policies:

Dear Teri Mills,

I apologize for the delay in responding to your email. I would like to
provide you with an answer to your question regarding the number of
Extra Bucks that may be used per purchase.

Our registers are set to allow 1 CVS coupon and 1 manufacturer coupon
per item. However, the staff should be allowing customers to use Extra
Bucks in combination with other CVS coupons since these are coupons you
have "earned." In addition, similarly they should be allowing the use
of "offer at the register" coupons which would be an open offer of $3
off of $15 or a certain dollar amount off of a specific item. Since our
registers are programmed to only accept 2 coupons (1 CVS, 1
manufacturer) per item if the number of coupons exceed the items
purchased a member of management will need to assist the cashier in
processing the coupons. I apologize in advance for any inconvenience
this may cause.

If you have any other questions please do not hesitate to contact us
either by e-mail or by calling (800) 746-7287. Thank you for taking the
time to contact us. I hope you have a nice day.

Sincerely,


Mandy Perez
Customer Relations-Extra Care Representative

Since I work at HEB, our system will only take one coupon per item. From what I was told, we are allowed to use BOTH a manufactured AND an in-store coupon. The cashier should then manually type in the 2nd coupon. Each cashier is different but I know what customers come up to me with double coupons, I take them off.... I know how it is to have to pinch pennies. I'm sorry they told you no.

Probably not. The only way is. If one is a stores coupon and you use the manufactures one along with it. Our grocery store does that. If they put something on a discount. You can also give the manufactures coupon for extra discount. But now at our grocery store. Wednesdays is double coupon day. I knew someone who would save up buying all her coupon items for that day and get double discount. She'd save tons of money a year on groceries.
