    No.

    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

    This only taking one sainsburg poins slip might have some truth in it. My check out assistant tried to do my 3, but could only put 2 of them through as the till only lets her put 1 of each amount in. Thinking about it, it was the same last time, so you could put a 200, a 500, a 1000 all in one shop, but not 2 x 200's.
    Obvs customer service can probably do them all at once.

    Usually the Sains fine wines are on double up

    Our Indian banquet meal was gorgeous......far too much for 2. But fabulous value at £10.

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

    It was so nice not cooking

    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

    I started at £46.36 this morning in one store and got them up to £80 over several transactions.

    Then went to another store and they started at £46.38 or very similar figure to where I began before I took part in the promotion in the 1st store. They then increased after every shop in store 2 but I am still lower than £80 which I had accumulated earlier. iykwim xx
    Cherish those you have in your life because you never know when they won't be there anymore.

    No matter how you feel, get up, dress up & never give up.

    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.
