Burger KingPeople use coupons because it can help them save money. Ideally, people will take the time to review the store’s coupons policy before trying to use multiple coupons in one transaction. It is understandable that a person may feel frustrated when a cashier refuses some of the customer’s coupons. It is not acceptable to take out that frustration on the cashier.

Burger King is a well known fast food restaurant that frequently offers coupons. Many fast food places offer coupons in an effort to attract customers to their restaurant (instead of one of their competitor’s restaurants). The fast food restaurant wants people to come in and use the coupon – and then buy some additional food and beverages as well.

A woman in the Milwaukee area decided to use multiple coupons to pay for her order at Burger King. The teenager behind the register informed the woman that the company’s policy only allowed for one coupon to be used per transaction. The woman was trying to use a dozen coupons.

Most people would sort through the pile of coupons they brought with them, pick out the one that would provide the most discount on its own, and hand that one coupon to the cashier. If the customer happened to be a frequent Burger King customer, he or she might save the rest of those coupons to use on another day.

Unfortunately, the woman who wanted to use multiple coupons on one transaction at Burger King decided that the situation was worth getting into a fight over. The woman (who was in her 40’s) allegedly left and returned with her daughter (who was an adult in her 20’s). The two women allegedly started shouting at the sixteen-year-old cashier. Things escalated, and the woman’s daughter allegedly punched the teenage cashier in the face.

Don’t get into a fight over coupons. It is not worth it. The teenage cashier was taken to the hospital with a mild concussion. The two women face felony charges of physical abuse of a child with intention to cause bodily harm. The two women could face up to six years in jail and $10,000 in fines if convicted.

What should you do if you want to use multiple coupons at a fast food restaurant? First, you should call the restaurant. Ask what their coupon policy is. Ask how many coupons they allow customers to use in one transaction. If you do not like the answer you are given, you can choose to make a purchase from the store’s competitor.

Good Tip: Saving money is important – especially if you have a lot of expenses like bills to pay, loans to pay off, and all the other things that drain your bank account. Figuring out a way to save money can feel tedious to some, and like a punishment to others. U.S. News suggests that you try one of these money saving challenges. The “No Eating Out for a Month” Challenge This one is self-explanatory. The goal is to avoid eating out for an entire month. This might be super easy for people who enjoy making meals at home. People who really enjoy dining out, or ordering food to be sent to their home, may struggle with this one. It’s worth a try because spending money on take-out is more expensive than buying groceries. The Pantry Challenge This one is a variation of the “No Eating Out for a Month” challenge. The goal is to use up all of your groceries before you buy more. It forces you to try and remember why you bought a food or beverage that you don’t know what to do with, and gives you the opportunity to find a way to use it. The one exemption to this challenge is the foods that have expired. Don’t eat them! Throw them in the trash. The “No Spend” Challenge Make a goal to avoid spending money during an entire weekend. The only exemption in this challenge is that you are allowed to pay bills. This challenge is interesting because it requires creativity. You must be creative and find workarounds for problems that you would typically solve by spending money. You may have a different outlook on spending after finishing this challenge.
