    Default I'm really new at couponing

    Is it wrong for me to take a couple of extra coupons from the machines in the stores? I took two and used them today and then took two more for when the cheese ran out and I needed more.

    I do it all the time. I figure the sign would say please take ONE if that was a concern.

    I take as many as I think I'll reasonably use. Usually two, but if the expiration date is really out there I may take more (again that I know I'll use).

    I don't think they mind. They would rather you take them and use them to get hooked on their product than leave them their to expire.

    No, it's not wrong. It dosen't say only take one. Least if you take them with the intention of using them there's less for the kids to stand there and pull them all out while the mother either ignores them or dosen't care.
    I was standing there one day waiting to get a couple cause I was buying the product. Kid stood there and pulled out every one in the machine that was left while the mother stood there....grrrr

    It was 1 dollar off 2 block Kraft cheeses. Kroger had them BOGOF, so I only spent 2.29 for both 8 ounce blocks. I am saving the other coupons for later next month.

    No, just use common sense and common courtesy. If you took 2 to use this trip, but there's only a few left, leave them for others to use. If you took 2, and there's 3/4 a pad of peelies left, take another 5 or 6 for next time. Don't be too greedy, but extras are fine as long as there's some left for the next folk.
