Because the stipulations by manufacturers can be different, it is difficult to have a policy that covers all situations. Our basic policy is to adhere to the stipulations printed on all coupons.
We do accept coupons printed from the Internet. Our goal is to accept coupons unless there is a legal compliance issue. If you have a question about a particular coupon, I would suggest checking with the Store Manager or Customer Service Manager at the store where you will be shopping.
I know the coupon policy for the store I work and shop at fairly well, and assume its similar, if not the same, at most other stores. Here are the highlights:
- You can use one store coupon (Publix, Target, etc) AND one manufacturer's coupon per item purchased (this is called stacking)
- You can use printable coupons from the internet (In our store the coupon can value up to $5, even for a free item
- If an item is BOGO, you can still use one coupon for each item (or two if you're stacking store/manuf)
- You will not get money back if the coupon value is greater than the price of the item, but the difference will be taken off your bill if you are purchasing more items
- You can use competitor's coupons, based on the discretion of the store. Competitors are other local grocery chains, as well as Target, Walmart, and the like. My store (perhaps others as well) does not currently take drug store coupons (Walgreens, CVS, etc)
If you have any specific questions, ask the manager at your local store and they will help you out.
