What does "maximum of use(s)" signify?

I like to create a one-time coupon for first time buyers, but am unclear on if that is possible. I see I can set a number of uses, but is that per unique visitor, or will the coupon execute just once, then never again? "Starts today, is valid until deactivated, applies to orders of USD $5 or more , with a maximum of 1 use(s)

Well to offer this feature we would have to require your customers to create a account prior to buying something. Not something we really want to do.

There is a sticky thread here in this forum which describes how to set up coupons for returning customers though.

Thanks Tobi,
Being the non-coding kind I might make a fool of myself for proposing a one-time cookie that expires, during which life the ”$5 off of your first purchase” coupon can be used, after which it simply disappears. Am I dreaming? I hate endlessly creating accounts as much as the next guy.

Uh, I still am unclear on my original question pertaining to what “use(s)” signifies… What happens when it’s a one time use? Can a customer use it once, or whoever uses it first also expires the coupon?
