I've got an interesting scenario that I can't quite figure out. Here's what I've got going on:

First, I have a Welcome promotion driven with a coupon for all customers in all customer groups. I have a banner rotator widget which shows a banner in the top block of all pages if the coupon is applied. Works fine.

Next, I have another promotion which is applied to a customer group called Sale. This promotion also displays a banner in the topmost block of all pages so long as a customer from the sale group is logged in. Works fine.

Here's the thing: I don't want to offer both promotions to the Sale customer as the Sale promotion will be a better discount than the Welcome promotion. No problem. I make sure that the Sale promotion has a higher priority than the Welcome promotion and then I make sure that the Sale promotion's "Stop Further Rules From Processing" setting is set to Yes.

My expectation is that when I applied the welcome coupon I should see the welcome banner at the page top, but if I log in a sale customer and apply the Welcome coupon and the Sale coupon, I should only see the Sale banner, since the Welcome discount isn't applied. What actually happens is that I see both banners.

Any ideas as to why this would happen or if I'm missing something.

Alright, so I've done some exploring here and my apparent conclusion is that Magento is only able to display one promotional banner on the site at one time. The widget/banner functionality is not intelligent enough to recognize specific conditions for multiple rules applied at once. Either that, or it's a bug. It's a bummer either way.
