Ashley emailed me on Friday with the following about the Target Coupon policy:
Hello! I didn’t see it posted on your website anywhere and wasn’t sure if you knew this, but I work at Target and we recently changed our coupon policy a little. We only only for a limited quantity of items to be purchased (typically about 4) at the discretion of the store, to only meet a certain household quantity. Also, as always, we will accept one Manufacturer coupon in addition to one Target coupon per item.
Hope this helps!!
I wasn’t sure if this was just an issue at her store or a nationwide change of policy, but Totally Target reported this morning that it IS a company-wide change. You can read the complete Target coupon policy for yourself, but the main changes are:
1. Limit of 4 identical coupons per household, per day (unless otherwise noted on coupon) (Mindi’s note: more and more stores seem to be making a move in this direction, thanks to shelf-clearers. Just another part of the fall-out from Extreme Couponing!)
2. Returns of items purchased using Manufacturer coupons may receive coupon value returned in the form of a Target GiftCard. (Mindi’s Note: I actually like this one….since so many stores tell you that they don’t reimburse you in ANY way when you return an item when you used a coupon, yet they still got paid the value of that coupon.)
3. We reserve the right to accept, refuse or limit the use of any coupon. (Mindi’s note: not loving this change)
4. We do not accept Canadian coupons in our US stores. (Mindi’s note: did they ever?)
What do you think of the new Target coupon policy? Will it change anything about the way you shop?
