Don't you hate it when you think you're going to have a cashier that will let a coupon slide and they don't! Ugh!

I went to HEB yesterday since I had a raincheck for $1 hot pockets. I took my six $0.50 hot pockets calzones coupons and got six of them. Plus I had an HEB catalina that was $1.25 off six hot pockets. I picked out a young guy cashier thinking he would let me use all the coupons, no problem. But it wouldn't let the catalina through and he said I couldn't use it. I didn't feel like I could argue because it did say that it was a manufacturer's coupon on the catalina. (HATE that about HEB, their store coupons all say they are manufacturers!) Sometimes the cashiers will override them and put both coupons in anyway though.

So I got my calzones for $0.50 each instead of $0.29 each. Boo.

That sucks! Just keep a mental note not to go through his line again!

You really can't be mad in that situation since it's not right (both were MCs) but it just stinks that sometimes they let things slide and other times they don't!

I wasn't sure the catalinas were MC until he said I couldn't use it and I saw on there that it said at the top. But I guess it is just like their in store coupons they have...they are MC also. It's kinda weird because you would expect them to be store coupons.

I've had varying experiences with this. Rite-aid in-ad coupons say manufacturer on them but they let you stack them. Meijer always lets me stack their catalinas since those can only be used at Meijers. It really does just depend on your individual store I guess.

Catalinas are screwy like that. I'm sorry it didn't work for you. 50c/box is still a sweet deal.

I've never stacked them at Maijer, but I have been able to use a Meijer one elsewhere...
