When learning to coupon it is very important to be familiar with stores coupon policies. A lot of times cashiers and managers are not familiar with their stores coupon policy. It is a good idea to print a coupon policy for each store you shop at with coupons. I have a section for my coupon policies in my coupon wallet.
After you start couponing I can almost guarantee that you will eventually run into a problem with a cashier. Always stand your ground when couponing. When this happens politely point out that in the stores coupon policy what your doing is allowed by the store. If the cashier still won't except your coupon, ask politely to speak to a manager.
When the manager comes, point out what your are trying to do in the stores coupon policy. Most of the time a manager will take your coupon once you point it out in the stores coupon policy. Sometimes even the managers won't budge on coupons. If this happens, go to the stores website and get the number to their corporate office. Then, call and explain the situation and if you are right they will address the store.
If you do end up having a problem like this, don't let it discourage you. Keep your head high and just think about how much money your saving your family.
