notes:

the bogo coupon auto deducts $6.98. this time i tried combining it with the $1 tearpad coupon. the $1 coupon beeped but the cashier pushed it though.

there's no real rule about whether a $x off 1 coupon can be combined with a bogo coupon wyb 2 items. i usually don't combine them because in most cases the second coupon scanned beeps. some cashiers will allow both coupons, others won't...
