Couponing can be confusing – especially when all the store have different policies. The best advice I can give is to pick ONE store a time and learn their policies before trying to coupon at multiple stores.
Here’s a list to get you going
See the full Walmart Coupon Policy
Walmart is the only store that allows overage. This means if you use a coupon for $1 off and the item costs 75¢ they will give you the difference. Yep – that’s right! You can choose to take the extra or apply it to the rest of your items.
If a coupon you provide will not scan in a Walmart register it is up to the manager to decide if they will accept it.
Target will accept a coupon that has another store’s logo on it as long as it says Manufacturer coupon on it
Target has several types of coupons: mobile, Cartwheel offers, Target store coupons and you can use them in conjunction with manufacturer coupons. They also have many offers where you get FREE gift cards with purchase that can be combined as well.
When stacking coupons at Target the register will remove them in this order:
- Target Store Coupon
- Cartwheel Offer
- Target Mobile Coupon
- Manufacturer coupon
Rite Aid has in store coupons that you CAN stack with a manufacturer coupon. They also have a reward program called Plenti. With Plenti you can earn points that you can use the next day after 6am to buy products. 100 Points = $1.00.
Walgreen’s has in store coupons that you CAN stack with a manufacturer coupon. They have a program called Balance Rewards. You can earn points to use on a future purchase, but it has many rules so make sure to read up on it.
At CVS you can earn rewards which are called ExtraBucks. Get weekly store coupons tailored to your spending habits at the Extra Care Machine.
