Grocery Store Internet Coupon Policies

by Laura on May 14, 2010

I have been getting alot of questions lately about internet coupons. I posted earlier this week about Internet Coupon ethics so that you can understand why some stores are so strict about how many and what type of internet coupons they will take. I am going to post the info for the stores around Hampton Roads. If you would like to know others, just leave me a comment and I will do some research!

Harris Teeter

•We gladly accept internet manufacturer’s coupons for products; however no “free” product internet coupons are accepted.
•With the purchase of two like manufacturer’s products, we accept two internet coupons, per store, per day.
•We do not accept internet coupons that do not appear to be originals or that won’t scan.

Wal-Mart- Accepts Internet Coupons
- No more than 40 coupons per transaction
- Internet coupons should be legible and say “Manufacturer Coupon.” There should be a valid remit address for the manufacturer and a scannable bar code.

Farm Fresh
Farm Fresh has no coupon policy on the internet. I know they accept internet coupons but I have never tried to use more than 2 identical in one purchase. If anybody has, please let me know!

Food Lion
Food Lion also has no published coupon policy. I have used printable coupons there numerous times and as long as they scan, they have always taken them. I have never tried more than two internet coupons per item per transaction. If you have, please let me know!

Kroger
Kroger tends to vary a bit store to store. But on the whole Kroger accepts Internet printable coupons as long as they scan, but they do not accept Internet printable coupons for free products. They will accept 3 Internet coupons per transaction.

If there are any other stores you would like me to ask, or if you have any additional info, please leave me a comment and I will see what I can find!

Do you know of the internet coupon policy for military commissaries? Do you know if they have a double coupon day or anything like that? It doesn’t seem like they are a good to deal to me…Thanks!!!

Let’s see if I can clarify some of this:

When I say identical coupons, I mean two of the exact same coupons. So let’s say you use Stoneyfield Yogurt. So you go on their website, give them your e-mail address and they e-mail you a $.50 off coupon. Then your friend goes, gives them her e-mail address and they e-mail her the same $.50 off coupon. You can use both of those, each on it’s own individual item. If another friend does it and you wanted to use the same coupon you would have to do it on a different transaction.

You can occasionally coupon stack (using two coupons on the same item). One of them must be a store coupon (specifically say Target or Rite Aid etc.) and the other a manufacturers coupon (usually from the paper or the web). Target is the best place to do this- they release many coupons.

Would you clarify for me? When you talk about using 2 or more identical coupons, are you saying that if you print a coupon 50 cents off are you using 2 identical coupons on one item? or is that 2 identical coupons on the 2 of the same item? Can you use a paper coupon and an internet coupon on the same item? How about a internet and a store coupon? Sorry for all the questions…I appreciate your time:)T
