Lidl bakery coupons

I was not aware that when using multiple coupons for free bakery items that only the lowest value coupon is deducted.
 I got caught out today when trying to use the free bakery item (£50 spend) and a coupon from spin the wheel . Only the lower value spin the wheel was deducted.
The cashier advised you need to put them through separately - not impressed!

    I didn't know this, last week I used 2 bakery coupons at the one time.  These were both spin the wheel type.  I have 3 on my phone just now, 1 savoury and 2 sweet and will be using them all later.  I take it it saves the other coupon for you to use next time?  Thanks for pointing this out.

    Clashing bakery coupons has always been a bit of a problem.

    I think when I tried to select two coupons that might be valid for the same item the app wouldn't let me activate both.

    For example I think I had something like two doughnuts for £1 and also the free bakery item and it wouldn't allow both to be active.

    I've just put two spin the wheel bakery items through at the same time and got both of them free and a friend has done the same
    I'm not sure about putting the free ' spend £50 for any free item' through at the same time though - maybe because it's not a specific item it doesn't work.
    But you can put the free item through separately after you've paid for your main shop

    The app allowed me to activate 2 coupons, but only deducted the lower value one.
    The Lidl cashier advised I neede to put through as separate transactions which I tried but the one from the £50 spend still did not work. I contacted Lidl who sorted out for me.

    Was in Lild today the only time this month, the only thing I didn't want to win was a pretzel as had one about 25 years ago and hated it.
    I won a pretzel, wonderful, but thought I might as well try it as maybe my tastes have changed, so got one, turns out I hate it even more than I remembered :s

    Yes, I discovered that a while back so now I put a loaf through first, get that free, then put the rest of the shopping through.

    I was meant to be losing my Christmas and New Year belly but have been in there every other day for a freeby to go with a cuppa.  I'll be glad come end of February to give it a rest.  I have enjoyed trying things I would not normally.  The best so far was the chocolate brownie, it was really good!
  • My favourites are pastel de nata, chocolate brownie and the pecan and something pastry.  Sorry, I forget the other ingredient.  I've posted on here before we love the low GI bread, it is so tasty, but I do feel it is suffering from shrinkflation.

    The honey and oat loaf is lovely but you don’t get much for £1.99 sadly. Got it free twice though - lovely jubbly.
