@cream4389 All the stores that takes printable that I shopped at including SDM knows to look for the different Pins . SDM will not get reimbursed from the company if the accept 2 or more coupons with the same pin that’s why every time you print you get a different PIN it has nothing to do with the bar code. That being said if we all do the right thing stores will continue to take printable coupons. Just my input

I am able to print 26 coupons and save another 10 coupons in pdf. I can print more but don’t think I would use that much. All I did is print 2 coupons in private tab in Safari in my phone, then close Safari completely, reopen the private tab and print, I just keep doing this to print as much coupons as I want to.

You are very Lucky. I only got to print from the PDF got 6 the first time and another 6 the second time . I did this on my PC with chrome. Firefox did not work for me to do this. Any tips to share how you get to print it directly without saving the PDF . TIA

Yes I have seen the size of the PIN . And I am sure that if Companies are going to be loosing money on these coupons the will stop accepting them like Metro for example..

Sorry only my opinion

Huge YMMV - SDM I went to did not want to process the coupons - coupon value has to be less than product cost.

I printed directly 10 copies due to the fact that my printer plan only print 15 pages per month, then the rest I save them to pdf to ask my uncle print them for me at his work. I did the same steps for both printing directly and pdf. I used private tab in Safari browser in iPhone. Hope this helps.

You were right; I edited my post. :)
Both work for me now: Print to pdf and Save to pdf.

You are right. If you can. Since it's relatively easy. Try to print coupons with different PINs in order for Shoppers (or any other merchant) to get reimbursed.

Sure you can print the coupons with the same pin 100 times, you'd just be screwing over SDM because they won't get reimbursed. In the long run, they'd probably just not accept these coupons so I personally would rather go through extra steps to print a coupon with new pin for every one I use. To each their own I suppose.

We agree and I have posted the following at 9:43 pm just before you posted:

And I have deleted the post you quoted. I thought it would be useless since someone had already quoted me.

Closing incognito and reopening let me reprint 2 more

Will be fun since its 1 coupon per transaction lol
Doing it this way will get you unlimited prints.

The coupon says "Limit 1 per purchase" meaning you use one coupon for each item purchased.

Since the flyer says "Limit of 6", you can buy 6 and use 6 coupons.

If SDM/Pharmaprix refuses the coupon because the coupon exceeds the price, you can always price match at RCSS or Maxi.

Some Shoppers have implemented a 2-coupon limit per transaction/customer.

Carry a copy of Shoppers Drug Mart/Pharmaprix Coupon Acceptance Guidelines with you. It clearly says:

"If the value of the coupon exceeds the value of the product, the coupon is to be processed as equal to the scanned retail of the product. The difference will not be issued as change."

Went to the Garden City Centre SDM in BC and they only let me use one coupon per transaction. After tax, worked out to 22 cents per box. I only brought two coupons with me, so just two boxes.

If you miss this week's special on Royale tissues at Shoppers, know that it comes back at $0.99 ($1.09 in the West) every two weeks so you might want to save a few coupons. The coupon expires December 31, 2021.

I didn't think Maxi would price match Pharmaprix? I find the two that I go to are pretty selective on which stores they'll price match. They won't price match Mourelatos or Tiger, since I've tried that in the past.

Be aware, there are more than one type coupons.
The 3ply says 6 pack or more, then there is the 2 ply and then the "any royal" at least this many.
Someone says can't print it.
It says you HAVE TO print it.

Sounds like SDM employees making up their own coupon policy again.

If you go to customer service, there is usually a sign with all the stores that this particular Maxi price matches.

If no sign exists, just ask.
