What is the Meijer store Coupon Acceptance policy?

Published 10/25/2010 01:35 PM   |    Updated 11/01/2013 09:39 AM

Accepted coupon types include: Meijer, manufacturer, Catalina (Meijer and manufacturer), mPerks, and competitor coupons within certain guidelines:

  • Coupons must be presented on or before the expiration date
    - Meijer does not accept expired coupons

  • All coupon terms and conditions must be met and validated by the checkout register
    - Read the fine print on each coupon to make sure that you are using it properly. Some coupons have restrictions or limits on how many of the same coupon you can use in a single transaction.

  • Customers may use one manufacturer coupon (paper or digital) per item.
    - some of the mPerks digital coupons are ‘Meijer Store Coupons’ and some are Manufacturer coupons (see below…)

  • Customers may also combine one manufacturer coupon per item with applicable Meijer coupon(s) where allowed under coupon redemption terms.
    - You can use (1) store coupon and (1) manufacturer coupon (paper or mPerks) per item. This is called coupon ‘stacking’  and it’s the best way to get a great deal!

  • Transactions cannot be broken up to avoid coupon stacking restrictions
    - No one is 100% sure what this means, not even Meijer Corporate Customer Service! Meijer does not have a ‘stacking restriction’. I believe that this applies to stores that double a limited number of ‘like’ coupon per transaction and that they are trying to discourage customers from conducting multiple transactions to get more coupons to double.
  • Separate checklanes will not be opened or designated for customers with large coupon orders

  • Manufacturer coupons and Catalina manufacturer coupons require the Customer to pay sales tax on the full retail amount
    - If you use a manufacturer coupon that covers the value of an item, you will still be responsible for the tax on the item, if taxable.

  • Meijer, Catalina Meijer, and competitor coupons require the Customer to pay sales tax only on the discounted price
    - If you use a store coupon that covers the value of an item, you will NOT be responsible for the tax on the item, if taxable.

  • Meijer will accept competitor coupons from Food Retailers or Mass Merchandise Retailers.
    - Per my conversation with the Corporate Customer Service Manager, competitor’s coupons are to be accepted at Meijer as a ‘store’ or ‘vendor’ coupon which can be ‘stacked’ with a manufacturer coupon (paper or mPerks).

  • Meijer defines Mass Merchandise Retailers as a retail store offering both food and general merchandise/apparel under one roof. Coupons from Club Stores and Dollar Stores will not be accepted.
    - Competitor’c coupons from Target, Kmart, Kroger and stores like these will be accepted. Competitor’s coupon from Walgreens, CVS, Dollar General and stores like these will not be accepted.

  • Meijer does not accept competitor coupons for beer, wine, liquor, cigarettes, double and triple coupons, clearance, percent off, total trans- action discounts, special promotions, gift card promotions, limited quantity items, mail-in rebate offers, and going out of business sales
    - You will not be able to use a $ off total purchase coupon from a competitor (such as a Walgreen’s Register Reward); the competitor’s coupon need to specify the discount of a certain number of items purchased (such as a $1/2 Nabisco Cookies coupon).

  • If the value of a coupon is more than the price of the item after discounts or other coupons have been applied, the value of the coupon will be applied up to the reduced price of the item.
    - Meijer does not give overage on coupons so coupons that exceed the price of the item will be adjusted down to the full price of the item.

  • Meijer does not apply the excess value of a coupon to the order total if the value of the coupon is over the price of the item after other discounts or coupons are applied.
    - Meijer does not give overage on coupons so coupons that exceed the price of the item will be adjusted down to the full price of the item.

  • Meijer reserves the right to limit coupon quantities and to determine the order of application of multiple coupons and/or promotions

You should print a copy of the Meijer Corporate Coupon Policy and take it to the store with you. Many of the cashiers at Meijer store are unaware of the terms in the coupon policy. Go HERE to print a copy of it.
