    Soooo new to this SDM point thing, 20x points etc etc...

    So today I am going to go do the 20x WUS$50 thing...and its $50 BEFORE taxes and coupons, so theoretically, if something is tagged at $10, I just need to buy 5 of them...and thats my $50...then taxes will bring it up to say, $55.00...then I use 5 coupons that I had for say $9...bringing my total down to $10. So thats all ok?? and if regular points were say 100 for each item, I bought 5 of them, so reg would be 500 pts..today I would see 10,000 pts?

    Thats correct, also don't forget to use the $10.00 coupon when you spend $50.00..this has worked for me in the past. However, some people said it didn't work for them.. Good luck..

    Forgot to mention a few things. First buy a sdm gift card, you'll get points do this separately from your purchase. Then use the gift card to pay for your stuff. I always wait until the total hits $50.00 or more then I hand over my coupons..

    FPCs don't count towards the $50 $ off coupons do, but not FPCs.

    Although I think some people have been able to get the cashier to enter the FPC as a $ off coupon, you just have to pay the taxes.

    Unfortunately FPC's do not count towards the $50 threshold.

    oOoOoOo good to know!! What if its a mail-out "cheque" from the company? I have a couple coupons for ANY Christie, Dads, Davids, PeekFreans, Thinsations product up to $4.26. So is it considered a FPC or a $4.26 coupon? lol

    I would say that's an FPC, but that's really just my opinion

    That sounds like an FPC, as you get the product for free as long as it's under $4.26 - but things like similac cheques do count towards totals, so I'm not sure.
    What I would suggest is not counting it towards your total - if it does work it just means extra points, but if it doesn't you don't lose out on the 20x

    ive used the specific coupon your talking about at SDM its considered an FPC coupon not a cheque. usually if anything says "up to (enter value here) " than its an FPC and doesnt count towards the 50$ unfortunately.. sorry

    I used one from Dole that was for $3 and bought Dole Live Right Bites for $2.99
    They get processed as a "cheque" same as cash. At least that is what my cashier did...

    I don't think they will accept the coupon via cell phone. But it never hurts to ask the cashier.
