    Hi – was wondering…how did you use 4 Esstiential Pasta
    coupons in one transaction? I thought the bottom of the
    coupon said one per customer? I’m only asking to understand
    a little better! And understand the coupon policies at each store!
    It’s tricky to remember all of them.

      You are right Erica. It does state one per transaction, but my store allows it. They know me very well there and know that I would do 4 different transactions LOL, so they let me use them all in one! I didn’t actually see the fine print before I used the coupons, but I should have looked more closely. You are right about that though. The good thing is that it doesn’t state one coupon per customer or per day. So, you technically can do as many transactions as you want with the same coupon. Hope this helps! Thanks for stopping by!
