To beep or not to beep?

To beep or not to beep, seems to be more than a question. The beep makes couponers tremble and probably irritates cashiers.

If you have read a coupon, matched it up with an item and then heard the "oh-so-wonderful" beep at the register, you know what I'm talking about. There are legitimate coupons that will beep, as well as some that will not beep when used on items not intended for that coupon.

With coupons, you can't always rely on the barcode, which is the root of why a coupon beeps or doesn't beep. You have to go with the wording on the coupon. Not the picture, mind you, but the wording.

If a coupon states, "Not for trial or travel sizes," but someone tells you that it won't beep, do not use it.

If a coupon states a specific item but you learn it doesn't beep on an item not intended for the coupon, do not use it.

On the flip side, if you follow the wording and you have the correct product, correct size, etc, it may beep. Make sure you and the cashier read it and match it up with the product. If you are both unsure, ask for manager approval. The store has the right to refuse the coupon if it beeps, but, kindly ask for approval if you know it is correct.

A coupon will also beep if the item purchased is less than the coupon value. If you purchase a product that is $1 and the coupon is for $2 off the item, it will beep. Most stores will value down the coupon, which is a source of debate among couponers because the manufacturer will reimburse the store for the full value of the coupon, plus eight cents. 

According to the coupon policy at Wal-Mart, the company gives the consumer full value of the coupon amount and allows the overage to go towards other purchases. The coupon will beep and the cashier has to verify the amount.
