CVS

  • Does not have their coupon policy available on their web site and they reserve the right to change their policy at any time.
  • Does not double coupons. They are redeemed at face value only.
  • Accept competitor coupons only for prescriptions in the pharmacy department (example: $5 Rite Aid gift card for new or transferred prescription).
  • Accepts coupons printed from the Internet if they have a barcode that scans at the register.
  • If the coupon does not scan at the register, the cashier should  inform you that they are unable to accept your coupon. They do not allow manual overrides at the register for coupons printed from the Internet.  They can override clipped coupons and coupons that were mailed to you from the manufacturer.
  • They allow 1 CVS coupon + 1 manufacturer coupon per item. They should allow you to use ECB (Extra Care Bucks) in combination with other CVS coupons since these are coupons you have “earned.” In addition, they should allow the use of “offer at the register” coupons which would be an open offer of $5 off of $20 or a certain dollar amount off of a specific item (ex. $2 off any Pampers product). Since their registers are programmed to only accept 2 coupons (1 CVS & 1 manufacturer) per item if the number of coupons exceed the items purchased, a manager will need to override the coupon.
  • You can use coupons towards a clearance item but the coupon will be adjusted if it is more than the price of the item.
  • The BOGO coupon allows you to purchase 2 items and get them both for free. With the manufacturer’s coupons you can combine one with one CVS coupon. You will be responsible for any tax due.
  • Rain checks can be issued for items out of stock. They can also issue ECB on a rain check item. These never expire. Many stores will accept manufacturer’s coupons with the rain check, even if the coupon is expired.

  • Store Manager has the right to accept, decline or limit use of ANY coupon upon view.
  • Recently it’s been reported to me that many Kroger’s store managers are changing their policies without notifying customers.  It may be a good idea to check with them periodically to make sure of their policy.

Publix

NOTE: This is a general “guideline” for the majority of Publix stores. Since each store varies in their acceptance, you should check with your store customer service or manager for their specific store policy on competitor coupons. I’ve heard that the policy is different in Alabama, Georgia, South Carolina and Tennessee than in  Florida and coastal Georgia.  Here is what you, my readers, have told me:

Alabama, Georgia, South Carolina and Tennessee:

  • Does not have an “official” policy.
  • Doubles manufacturer’s coupons up to face value of $.50 every day.
  • Does not double Publix store coupons or competitor coupons.
  • Does not limit the number of like/same coupons that you can double. The register is programmed to require a manager’s approval when the coupons total over $50 or when you have more coupons (store and manufacturer together) than items.
  • Accepts coupons printed from the Internet if they have a barcode that scans at the register.
  • Does not accept printable “free” item coupons if the value is over $5.
  • You may use one Publix store coupon and one manufacturer’s coupon per item, unless either coupon explicitly prohibits it.
  • Accepts competitor coupons from traditional grocery stores within a 5 mile radius. The individual store managers decides which stores to accept as competitor.
  • Some stores will accept a competitor + Publix + manufacturer coupon for the same item, however most stores do not.
  • Few stores accept drug store coupons as competitor while most do not.
  • You may use 2 coupons for BOGO sale items if you buy 2 items. You may also use a store and manufacturer coupon for each item as well.
  • With BOGO sale items you do not have to purchase 2 items, each will ring up as half price.

Florida and Coastal Georgia:
Most of the above applies in Florida and coastal Georgia. However, here are some differences:

  • They do not double any coupons.
  • You must buy 2 of the BOGO items to get the sale price. You must buy 2 items, one is full price and the second is free.
  • Many stores will not let you use coupons for both items that are B1G1. You can still use one store and one manufacturer, but not 2 of both.

Rite Aid

  • Does not double coupons. They are redeemed at face value only.
  • They do not accept competitor coupons.
  • Accepts coupons printed from the Internet that are $5 in value or less. They must have a barcode that scans at the register. They do not allow manual overrides at the register for coupons printed from the Internet.
  • They allow 1 Rite Aid coupon + 1 manufacturer coupon per item.
  • They allow you to use “total purchase” coupons (ex. $5 off your $25 purchase). You may use more than one total purchase coupon per visit but they need to be separate transactions & each transaction must meet the minimum purchase requirement.
  • Since their registers are programmed to only accept 2 coupons (1 Rite Aid & 1 manufacturer) per item if the number of coupons exceed the items purchased, a manager will need to override the coupon.
  • You can use coupons towards a clearance item but the coupon will be adjusted if it is more than the price of the item.
  • The BOGO coupon allows you to purchase 2 items and get them both for free. You can combine the sale price with manufacturer’s coupons . You will be responsible for any tax due.

Trader Joe’s

Walgreens

  • Has their coupon policy available online.  I recommend printing a copy to take with you on your shopping trips.
  • Does not double coupons. They are redeemed at face value only.
  • You can combine manufacturer’s coupons and store coupons (store coupons include those found in the weekly ad, online, or in various coupon booklets throughout the store).
  • Walgreens issues Register Rewards with certain items as a promotion (ex. $3 RR back for a $10 Huggies purchase).  They are like cash, but are a manufacturer’s coupon.  Generally they expire 1.5-2 weeks after issued.  These may not be combined with another manufacturer’s coupon.
  • Total number of Register Rewards and manufacturer’s coupons cannot exceed the number of items.  Walgreens’ store coupons are sometimes not considered part of your coupon total, but this varies.  For example: if you buy 1 bottle of shampoo with an in-ad, store coupon, and a manufacturer coupon, the register might beep and not let you continue.  You need to have a second “filler” item in your order to keep the items vs. coupons number the same.  It can be anything at all but lower priced items equal greater savings.  For example you could add a piece of candy or a ten-cent pencil.
  • Store coupons may be valid for multiple items.  Example: a coupon that states “Dish Liquid 99¢, Limit 3″ will adjust the price for up to three bottles of Dish Liquid to 99¢ with one coupon.
  • You can usually use two coupons on a BOGO Free sale.
  • Walgreens does not handle the issuing of Register Rewards.  Any questions or issues you have, you can call the Catalina company at 1.888.8COUPON and give them the numbers on the Register Reward. (They have a great Customer Service dept.)
  • Register Rewards cannot be used to pay sales tax.
