General Questions

A store promotion that specifies Spend $25, save $10, does the $25 have to be my total after I present my coupons?

This varies by store. Most promotions only require that you reach the minimum spending threshold before presenting any manufacturer coupons. Certain stores or promos require that you maintain the minimum spend value, even after all coupons and discounts have been deducted.  Please read the fine print or ask customer service for more information.

You may only use one manufacturer coupon per item.  A manufacturer coupon and a store coupon may be used together to purchase one item as long as neither coupon prohibits it. Please read the coupon very carefully. Manufacturer coupons will state “Manufacturer Coupon” across the top of the coupons.

A store may or may not double your coupon that reads “do not double” as part of a store doubling promotion. Always check your store coupon policy to find out whether or not they will double a coupon that states “DND.”
