Coupon Policies are your best friend when it comes to coupon shopping. You need to know your coupon policy for the store you are shopping in, it will save you more time and money. I carry a couple coupon policies in my binder but for the most part I use my Smartphone for Coupon policies. I have them all bookmarked in my phone so if a problem arises I am ready. I have only had to use this once but I want to be prepared, just as you should be.
Big Lots—Big Lots does not take manufacturer coupons
Foodlion—I got this information in an email. Our company will gladly accept manufacturer, store, internet and Catalina coupons, provided they scan in our register system. We will however, decline internet coupons offering a free product, a coupon that has a higher dollar amount than the value of the product, a competitors’ coupon, or if the coupon appears to be fraudulently generated, copied, or reproduced. In addition, we will only accept one coupon per item. We do not honor competitor prices. We reserve the right to decline acceptance if the coupons are deemed to be fraudulent. I hope you find this information beneficial. Please feel free to speak to the store manager with any concerns you have.
We allow a limit of 10 of the same kind of coupons in one transaction; however there is no limit on the amount of coupons. You can use one coupon per item even on BOGO items as long as there are no restrictions on the coupons, such as “not good with any other offer”. Our associates are well trained and understand our standard practice and this is companywide and not on a store by store basis. However, our store management is able to make the final decisions on coupon use in our stores. .
