Since TLC Extreme Couponing has taken off this is one of the things I am emailed about most.
Consumers are aggressively seeking coupons to save money but are not sure what the coupon terms are and when they can use them.
You can't use a coupon for something that is on sale can you?
Answer: Yes, you most certainly can!
I have this coupon that says "can not be used with any other offer". Does that mean I can't use the coupon when the item is on sale?
Answer: You can most definitely use the coupon when the item is on sale. Can not be used with any other offer means that you can only use one coupon and not "Stack" or use multiple coupons for each individual item.
Example If you were purchasing 2 bottles of shampoo and your coupon said "not to be used with any other offer" you could use 1 coupon per bottle.
My coupon says " limit 1 per purchase". Does that mean if I purchase 3 items I can only use 1 coupon?
Answer: No, 1 per purchase means that you can use 1 coupon per each item.
Example If you are shopping and buy seven items each of those items is it's own purchase so you are making seven "purchases". All of these purchases combined make up a Transaction.
My Coupon says "Limit, 1 per transaction" or "One coupon per customer". What does that mean?
Answer: This means you can only use 1 coupon for your transaction. If I have a coupon that says this and I want to use 2 coupons I would complete my transaction then have my husband make a separate transaction.
