  1. how are you getting 2 video value coupons? i noticed you've used 2 reach video values this week. were they from different months? i want in on the twiceness!!

  2. Sarah - when you go to print the VV coupon, a window should pop up with the printing information (like when you would print a regular document). It should give you the option to change the amount of copies. That's how it works on my computer and we have windows vista. Not sure if it would be the same for MAC. Hope that helps!

  3. ok so now I have a question - how are you able to use more than one video value coupon for the same item? I had two reach vv coupons and they would only let me use one. Also where are you getting the 5/25 printable?

  4. hey mel!
    1. i get the $5/$25 from a) video values, b) redplum.com and c)there was a one day only special printable coupon. i get $5/$25 from my mother and mother in law as well (only 2 per computer). some "serious" couponers have multiple computers so they can't print many coupons, i just use my family =)
    2. you can only use 1 video value coupon per item per transaction. i've used the same video value coupon twice but only b/c they are from different account--my husband has a video value account which i use. the coupons are now "serialized" which mean that each coupon can only be used once per card--but different accounts print up different numbers on the video values coupons so you can use more than one as long as they are from different video value accounts. the VV don't say anything about "one per household" so we have one for me and one for my husband.
    3. did i answer your questions? you can always f/b me if i'm unclear...which is what i am almost all the time! hahaha

  5. urgh. clear as mud.
    blame it on baby brain (does that excuse still work when the baby is 10 months old?)
    *1 VV coupon per item per transaction
    if you are buying two reach toothbrushes you can only use 1 VV coupon
    *VV coupons can only be printed/used once

  6. yep it makes sense although I would still like to find a 5/25 for my run to the store today, urghh!! THanks for explaining all that. I will check redplum.com for one.

  7. good news - I found the redplum coupon at this link http://www.coupongreat.com/detail/riteaid.com.html?gclid=CK-p8by0jKQCFVVx5Qod-TKuLA

    Sarah - try this and see if it works.
