Yay! An official King Soopers Coupon Policy has finally been released! There have been various versions floating around online, but they were never able to confirm for me that it was their official policy…so I am very happy to share this with you and hope that it will help to relieve a few of your frustrations. Here are some highlights:
Manufacturer coupons will be doubled up to .50 when the customer uses their King Soopers Card.
*This is nothing new. 😉
If the Double Coupon face value exceeds the retail price of the item, the item will be free (no cash back).
Limit one coupon per item.
*I wish that they would have put this as one manufacturer coupon per item so that it is clear that we can use a store coupon with a manufacturer coupon. This may cause some confusion at the register.
Double coupon policy does not apply to in-store coupons.
*this is referring to “store coupons” AKA “King Soopers or Kroger Coupons”
Our goal is to to always ensure that we have adequate product levels for all of our customers. Therefore King Soopers and City Market have the right to limit the number of like coupons (like UPC).
*I can respect this and it is very nice to see it in writing. I am however, not a huge fan of them just leaving this limit up to what the store feels like doing. What if we get up to the register and they decide to limit us to two coupons? Also, I am hoping that they will be motivated to order a large stock of items that are on sale so this will not be as big of an issue. It will be interesting to see how this plays out in the stores since it does not include the “3” coupon limit in writing.
Catalina and Web Bucks coupons may not be doubled.
*this is usually the case, however I’m not sure how the will handle it if a Catalina coupon starts with a (5) in the barcode
We do accept print-at-home Internet Coupons in our stores.
*yay! I’m glad to now have this in writing…should help to clear up some confusion!
We do NOT accept free item coupons from the internet. If a customer has a buy one get one free coupon, we will honor the coupon if the requirement is met.
*this is a little bit of a bummer since there are some internet printables for free items that are legit, but it is completely understandable given the number of fradulent coupons that are floating around
Overall, I am very excited that they have released their policy and think that it is a good positive step in them supporting the use of coupons in their stores. What do you think?
