[QUOTE=rachiebaby18;40102]here's some stuff i put together from mine, and other's posts...
I have heard that you should redeem your coupons in a certain order. Any truth to that.
Most people use their MFR and CVS Qs first and then the ECBs, just so they can see what their total gets marked down to; that way they can see if their using the proper amount of ECBs.
Depending on your state sometimes it is beneficial to give the ECBs and $/$$ first then the manuafacturers' coupons since the ECBs will lower the taxable amount but not pay for tax and while the mq amount can still be taxable it will also pay for the tax.
If you have a $4 off $20 or $3 off $15 CVS coupon... you must use that coupon first before all other Qs. Say your was $20 and then after MFR q's it was $10, the CVS $4 off $20 Q would beep and not go through cause it was showing the total as $10 not $20... so use the CVS Q once first.
Many have found that you can present the $/$$ in any order because the register still remembers the original subtotal.
In the past with certain deals there are register problems that won’t allow you to use your full amount of ECBs. If this happens, have the cashier void out the transaction and try again. This time, use you’re ECBs first before all other coupons. This is more than likely to go through.
Also rescanning your card often takes care of the problem and a quicker solution.
