Whole Foods Market Coupon Policy & Money Saving Tips

So, we now have a Whole Foods in Knoxville!!  I thought it might be helpful to share their coupon policy and a few tips for saving at Whole Foods.

Whole Foods Market Global Coupon Policy

  • A store coupon and a manufacturer coupon can be combined on one item.
  • When the value of the coupon exceeds the value of the product no cash back is given.

  • Competitor coupons are not accepted with the exception of Michigan stores in Midwest.
  • Case discounts can be combined with coupons.

Whole Food Savings Tips

1. Don’t buy everything you need.  Know what you are going in for and don’t be tempted by all the amazing and fancy food, unless it is on super sale. 🙂 By skipping many packaged products and buying just the basics you can avoid spending your entire grocery budget in one trip!

2. Consider the  Whole Foods Market 365 brand.  Whole Foods Market store brand, 365, has some really good products for some really good prices.  Compare prices on what you usually buy then experiment and see what your like!  This is a great way to save on organics you are already buying but remember, don’t assume that all 365 products are organic. Be sure to read labels.

3. Bring your own bags. You will get a small discount for  bringing your own bags.

4. The Whole Deal. Whole Foods releases a newsletter called “The Whole Deal” every two months and it contains coupons that are valid for three months. Knowing what coupons are available means you have twelve weeks worth of sales that might match up with the coupons.

5. Case discount. From lunchbox beverages to snacks, get discounted pricing on most items when you buy a full case. Ask Customer Service for details.

6. Sign up and save. Subscribe to Whole Foods email newsletters to receive the latest specials and coupons, and recipes. And follow the Whole Foods Facebook page to see alerts about fantastic one day or three day sales!

7. Sign up for the Whole Foods Kids Club!  If you have kids sign them up for the Whole Foods Kids Club. Benefits and events vary from store to store but in general this means samples, coupons,  fun events and happier kids while you are shopping.
