Coupon Stacking

I've been trying to find the answer to this one: I've been learning how to power coupon shop. There are groups that tell how to stack coupons at such places as Walgreen's.

Well Walgreen's has a sales circular that will have a coupon in it (this is a store coupon) then you can stack a manufacturer coupon. Does anyone know if there happens to be a store logo on these manufacturers' coupons, can I still use these as a regular coupon or does this logo make it store specific?

Coupon Stacking

Normally with a store logo, it makes it a "specific coupon". I have been doing the same for a few years now. If it has a store logo, basically only that store would accept it. There are tons of sites to get just manufacturers coupons though. Hope this helps. :) (05/27/2010)

Coupon Stacking

The coupons in the Walgreen's ad are Walgreens store coupons, not manufacturer's coupons. You can only use these at Walgreens, unless you know of a store that will match or beat a competitor's price with coupons.

You can use a store coupon and a manufacturer's coupon at most places to "stack" coupons. Most but not all stores do this but as far as coupons go it can be hit or miss on a store by store basic. It is a good idea to either ask your store manager ahead of time or many of the stores have official written coupon policies available online that you can print in case you have a new cashier unfamiliar with coupon policies.

A manufacturer's coupon barcode will start with a 5 or a 9*. (The Wag's store coupons start with a 0.)

A manufacturer's coupon will have fine print at the bottom with retailer instructions on where to remit for reimbursement. A store coupon does not have this.

To further complicate this there are coupons that have a store logo but also say "manufacturer's coupon" on them. (coupons at Target.com for instance). They say manufacturer's coupon but have a Target logo. You supposedly can use these at other stores since it is a manufacturer's coupon but it is up to the non-Target store whether they take them or not. I have read online that some places will and some won't. I don't do it.

There are coupons in this week's RiteAid ad that have a Rite Aid logo on them but say "manufacturer's coupon" on them. The barcode does not start with a 5 or 9 and they say "good only at Rite Aid". So these are not good at other stores, unless you have a store that will price match another stores offers.

With the popularity of printable online coupons and the mayhem that seems to ensue with them the various store policies on the use of coupons seems to change frequently so keep that in mind. :-)

* = 5 means it can be doubled if your store allows doubles and 9 means the coupon does not allow it to be doubled. (05/27/2010)

Coupon Stacking

When using store coupons and manufacturing coupons, keep in mind that if you give them the store coupons to deduct first they will usually take the manufacturers coupons next. If you hand them the manufacturer coupons first they can refuse the store coupons. I always stack them so I can grab the store ones first and wait until the clerk finishes deducting those before handing her the others. Don't forget to stack them with sales and rebates. Walgreens also allows you to use as many coupons as you need for you purchase e.g. if the coupons says limit 3 you may use 2 coupons for 6 items or 3 coupons for 9 items. Walgreens is a great store!
