BIG Changes to the Stop & Shop Coupon Policy and they are listed below – updated 1/14/15

COUPON POLICY:

  • To ensure product availability for all customers, we reserve the right to limit individual coupon quantities.
  • The value of the coupon will not be redeemed for more than the price of the item. Coupons have no cash value.
  • Coupons must not be expired.
  • The physical coupon must be presented by the customer and retained by the cashier. Example: A coupon presented on a customer’s personal device from an App (like Snip Snap) cannot be accepted.
  • Our stores do not accept altered or tampered (e.g. expiration date cut off) or copied coupons.
  • Our stores do not accept competitor issued store coupons. Exception: Special circumstances that are communicated by the Division.
  • Unless a special store promotion is being run, we do not accept coupons for gift cards.
  • On manufacturer’s coupons, sales tax will be applied to the total before the coupon is redeemed. The customer is responsible for the sales tax, where required by law.
  • When using SNAP (food stamps) as payment, coupons will reduce the SNAP total due when redeemed toward the purchase of eligible food.

MANUFACTURER COUPON POLICY:

  • Our stores accept all manufacturer coupons. Exception are any items excluded by state regulations.

  • Any coupons for “free” products will be honored for the value of the item only. “Free” coupons cannot be doubled or tripled.

STORE COUPON POLICY:

  • A paper store coupon, electronic store coupon and a manufacturer coupon may be redeemed on the same item. If the combined value for the coupons used exceeds the price of the item, the item is free. The manufacturer’s coupon will be deducted first, and then the store coupon will be adjusted so that it does not exceed the price of the item.

We do accept internet coupons, including those for a free item, with the following exceptions:

  • Internet coupons may be doubled provided they meet all doubling requirements and are not specifically prohibited by the manufacturer.

DOUBLE/TRIPLE COUPON POLICY:

  • Stores automatically double manufacturer coupons every day.
  • Coupons for Lottery tickets, cigarettes, alcohol and items prohibited by law are not to be doubled.
  • In order for a coupon to be doubled, the customer must use their Loyalty card.
  • The Double Coupon Policy does not apply to “free” coupons, Checkout coupons, eCoupons, Act Media coupons (where applicable), or store coupons.
  • We double the savings marked on any manufacturer’s coupon up to .99¢. Any coupon $1.00 and greater will be redeemed at face value for the item purchased.
  • In cases where the double coupon total exceeds the value of the item, the offer is limited to the retail price.
  • The maximum number of identical coupons allowed for each identical item is 16, unless otherwise stated on the coupon.

    I am a Stop & Shop Swampscott, MA customer. My manufacturer’s coupons have never been doubled, Why?

  2. Hi, I have been reading your blog for a couple of years now and wanted to give you the heads up on something. When I was shopping at Stop & Shop (Swampscott) yesterday, I was told they will only take 15 coupons per order. They claim that this has always been their policy but they hadn’t been enforcing it. I do self check out so this shouldn’t be too much of an issue for me but it bugs me that they are trying to limit coupons to such a small number. Thanks for all that you do!

    • Thanks Gail – I was actually just starting research to update this page so I will be sure to speak with corporate if it is not on their site. They did have the policy about IDENTICAL coupons – is that what they mean or total coupons? THANKS – hoping that is store specific.
