Above is an image of a coupon from this wekeend’s insert. It shows $1/1 Skintimate Cream Shave. Since it is in the inserts, it should scan without any problems when you purchase that exact item, right? Not necessarily.
Playtex recently purchased Edge and Skintimate products, which in turn changed the UPC codes. That means, if you happened to pick up the new packaging, your coupon just may not scan – even though you purchased the correct item. The difference is that the old code is the SC Johnson code, which works on Signature Scents and Skin Therapy cans rather than the Cream Shave.
So, what does this mean to you? It means that you have to make sure that you check the barcode of the product and the coupon to make sure that they match up. Your cashier may also manually over ride the coupon and push it through, when you show that you did purchase the right item. Is that legal for them to do? Yes it is. Your product purchased matches the product on the coupon, so they can do a manual over ride and allow your coupon to be applied to your purchase.
Did your coupon beep? Did the cashier push it through for you?
Thanks, Jenna for sharing this with us!!
