notes:i was surprised to find that the 1st snickers coupon automatically took off $.99. i think the 2nd coupon asked the cashier for price and he entered $.99.

this may have to do with the extended barcodes on the coupons. the barcode on the right is the new style that some stores systems are finally starting to support. perhaps the cashier scanned the right barcode on the 1st coupon, but the left on the second.

so you should only count on getting $.50 off for these coupons, but just be aware that you may get $.99 off and plan accordingly. i was planning to use a $1 eb, which didn't work out - but i'm not complaining. :)
