    If memory serves the points total doesn't properly update until the next day so when you shop it tends to show you the total earned on that shop plus your starting total for the day

    With my 1,000 and 500 points ones, I have been going straight back and buying one banana per coupon.

    Over 1000 point coupons have to go through manned till or CS desk.

    Nah. T&Cs specifically say there is no limit to the number of transactions you can do

    Edit: i just checked my receipts and they all show the correct cumulative total. I'm guessing the issue for you is because you switched stores. I'm sure it will all be fine

    Interesting about the Hipp coupon - terms say one per transaction.

    I guess it depends on how we/they interpret the word transaction.

    To me, a transaction is a single item. The whole of the items bought all together on one receipt is not a transaction, that to me is simply a list of separate transactions which happen to be purchased at the same time.

    Transaction

    Definitions (2)

    1. An agreement between a buyer and a seller to exchange an asset for payment.
    2. In accounting, any event or condition recorded in the book of accounts.

    In the above definitions, there are no plurals, which to me confirms one coupon per item, not one coupon per shopping trip.

    Every time i get multiple hipp i give the sa the chance to do separate transactions per the T&Cs . They have never yet chosen to do that though and always lump them through as one

    Until.......I think one SA had his knuckles rapped so when i next went to him he said he had to check with an SV. The SV told me i had had enough already and they wouldn't let me use any more....in that store

    No point complaining. I have plenty other stores happy to take them

    We priced it up as a proper takeaway and it would have been about £30-£35

    It was so nice not cooking
