Target Coupon Policy Update

There are are a few revisions to the Target Coupon Policy that you will want to be aware of. My comments are in red.

Buy One Get One Free Coupons (BOGO):

· BOGO coupons cannot be combined (i.e. you cannot use two BOGO coupons on two items and get both for free). Unless stated otherwise on the coupon, the use of one Buy One Get One Free coupon requires that two of the valid items are presented at checkout of which one item will be charged to the guest and the 2nd item will be discounted by its full retail price. This really is nothing new, they must have just felt they needed to put it in writing.

· A second cents-off coupon of the same type cannot be redeemed towards the purchase price of the first item.  This is a change. The two rules are below. Basically they no longer allow stacking with BOGO coupons.

o If a Target BOGO coupon is used, one additional manufacturer coupon maybe used on the first item.

o If a Manufacturer BOGO coupon is used, one additional Target coupon may be used on the first item.

Internet (Print-at-Home) Coupons:

· We gladly accept valid internet coupons that contain a clear and scannable bar code.

· We do not accept internet coupons for free items with no purchase requirements. This one I understand, there are a lot of “Free Product” fraudulent coupons.

My feeling is this is a move you will start to see from most stores due to the Extreme Couponing craze. (Either from the number of new couponers who do not yet understand ethics and are trying to emulate people on the show or from those who do understand and are clearing shelves.)
I think both  retailers and manufacturers will continue to tighten policies on coupons. What do you think?

    I agree. I must say I never used coupons unti I saw the show but what I took away from the show was the concept of couponing not the crazy extreme things they do.
