    cdipierr, there's no easy answer to your question.

    It's yes, and no. If the coupon upc code begins with a "5" then the register will double it. If the code begins with a "9" then the register will NOT double it.

    The exception to that is that some cashiers at some stores will pull out coupons that state "do not double" and set them aside to ring up manually...so that they do not double.

    It really depends on the store you shop at, and to further confuse the issue it depends on the cashier you have at that store.

    I guess you can only prepare for the "worst" and be surprised if you get the extra savings.

  • cdipierr Sep 17, 2010

    Does HT double coupons from sites like Betty Crocker that have the "do not double" on them?

  • Faye Prosser - Smart Shopper Sep 16, 2010

    rannkangas, HT's policy is that you can only use 1 coupon per BOGO deal. The BOGO items DO ring up half price and if you only buy 1, it will ring half price. Many HT's will let you just buy 1 of a BOGO deal and use 1 coupon (which will double). Most will not let you buy 2 of a BOGO and use 2 coupons. As CHC indicated, you have to get 4 of a BOGO deal to use 2 coupons these days. Lowes FOods takes a different approach, which I love. They do not have that restriction. You can use a coupon on each item with a BOGO sale. Thankfully, HT offers so many other good deals, it offsets the BOGO issue.

  • KrackinUp Sep 15, 2010

    rannkangas, I've learned some do and some don't. The HT that I work at doesn't. Technically on BOGOs, you are really only buying 1 item, and the coupon registers that. So, for them to actually work, you have to Buy 2 of that item. And you'll get 2 free.

    Hope this helps. :)

  • rannkangas Sep 15, 2010

    I got alot of great deals today--but didnt realize at HT that the BOGO dont ring up half price?? I was told I would have to buy 4 packages of cookies for me to use my $1 off two?--I was told that they dont ring up half price but that it makes one free....kinda disappointed but still very very happy about all the deals i got! yaaa!
