I have an important update on Kroger's Coupon Policy. This policy went into effect earlier this month. (This coupon policy is for Georgia residents.) Please let me know if this coupon policy is the same in your area, and you live outside the state of Georgia.
The new policy states:
- We reserve the right to limit no more than five (5) paper manufacturer coupons for the same product, with each coupon value considered one (1) coupon in the same transaction.
- For Example: Kroger has Crest toothpaste on sale for 10 for $10. You are only allowed to purchase (five) 5 and use (five) 5 newspaper coupons.
*If there happens to be a blinkie coupon in front of the toothpaste, that is considered a manufacturer coupon. You CAN NOT USE IT, if you already have 5 coupons cut out of the newspaper!!
- Only one internet coupon per item will be accepted.
- We only accept two (2) Internet Coupons per manufacturer (only 1 coupon per item), per like item, per Customer, per day.
- For example, Kroger has purchase four (4) participating items, Get 1 FREE Gallon Kroger Milk. I have (4) printable coupons for the buy 4 get free milk sale. Kroger's new policy states you can only use 2 printable coupons per customer, per day. So, with that being said you can NOT use all 4. You can only use two printable. THIS IS NOT GOING TO HELP YOU MAXIMIZE YOUR SAVINGS!!!
Another Example, Buy 10 participating items save $5 instantly. You can only use a TOTAL of 7 coupons!! 5 Manufacturer Coupons (newspaper) and 2 Internet Printable Coupons. AGAIN THIS IS NOT GOING TO HELP YOU MAXIMIZE YOUR SAVINGS.
- What are my thoughts? I honestly do not like this new policy. It's going to hurt people who donate to charities and local food banks. I also think with Kroger's new coupon policy they are going to lose business and "valued" customers. People will go to Walmart and price match. I called my local Walmart and they told me they would price match Buy 4 participating items to get free milk. As of now, Walmart does NOT have any limits on what you can purchase or limits on how many coupons you can use in a purchase.
What do you think about these new changes?
