OK, so in June-ish, a coupon came out in the inserts for Ultra One Touch minis $20 off. The coupon said "one per person." I have a problem with that wording because if they really wanted it to be "one per person," why would they put the coupon out in that type of venue where a person could obtain multiple copies of that coupon?

Next, my local grocery store has an in store coupon for Trend laundry detergent this week for 99 cents, one per family. So far, I've only done it once, but how could they really stop a person from doing it multiple times, just picking up a new copy of the ad from the huge stack they have by the door...besides the fact that I got 3 copies of the coupon at home because I bought a newspaper the day the ad came out, then I picked up a Penny Saver with it inside at the gas station, and they delivered a Penny Saver to my door.

So...would you feel badly using either of these coupons more than once?

I don't feel bad. In fact, I've done the One Touch deal many times already. I was a little worried about trying to buy 2 at a time, but I figured if they said anything then I would just get one. No one's had a problem with it so far. I guess it just depends on what store and how the cashier or manager feels about enforcing the wording. I really don't see why they care anyway. They're still getting paid from the manufacturer.

Until they find a way to actually regulate it all, which I doubt they will ever do, I don't see why you shouldn't do it more than once. If everyone in the world went for the deal, there may be a problem with people doing it more than once. But all you're really doing is using someone else's "one purchase" that they aren't going to use anyway.

Exactly...so I did the Kelloggs rebate 3 times...and that doesn't even come close to all the people I know who do not do those things!

I figure there are four other people that live in this house that are not doing deals, so I have at least 5 runs through until I could start to be concerned. Luckily, I have no conscience for coupon limits. Muahahaha.

I don't feel bad using them... I only get one per person/family per visit.
