Using Expired Coupons

By Renee Strange 8 28

If you have an expired coupon (non-grocery), the store may still honor it. I recently purchased pricey dog food at a pet store. I nearly threw away an expired coupon for $3.00, but decided to present it on the off-chance that they would accept it. I was pleasantly surprised when the clerk noticed the expiration, but did an override on the cash register.

This may be illegal and you need to know that they Some stores actually do have a fraud squad looking for people using outdated coupons and those that use fake coupons. Don't just trust the person checking you out, always consult with the real store manager before you use these. Playing dumb doesn't work. They know that line.

Your trying to save money not pay a fine for using them.

Just thought you ought to know this.

As I have posted before: Cub and Walmart both take expired coupons up 3 months expired. Check with your local stores. You have to ask the floor manager if you get any static from the clerk. This is not A posted thing they advertise but is honored. Coupon clubs all know about this info. Military bases for US families is 6 months post expiration.

Cub Food Stores and Walmart Stores (at least here in MN) are taking coupons with expiration dates 90 days post. You have to have the checker verify with floor manager, as they all don't seem to retain that information.
