New P&G coupon rule?!?!

WHAT does this mean?
I wouldn't have noticed unless someone mentioned it online on another forum...


limit of 4 like coupons PER HOUSEHOLD PER DAY?
NOT limit of 4 like coupons in one transaction like before.

So what does it actually mean??
I need clarification like... example.
I can use 4 dawn coupons but i can't use a tide pg coupon in that same transaction?
OR
I can use only 4 dawn coupons at a store and have to come back the next DAY to buy another 4 (this is in the literal sense that the store will literally keep track of your purchases !)

Its like you can only use 4 dawn qs per day... in the same trxn you may use 4 tide, 4 olay, etc.. but no more than 4 of the same per day! I hope ppl will be more cautious.. if p&g felt the need to change the prev exclusions then it means they're paying attention.. no back to back trnxs at the same store at least..

Before you know it, it's going to be a limit of 2 items per household, per day.

People think its okay to do things just because the cashiers will let them, or to make it a little easier on themselves, or for whatever reason.

Every little loophole people find and take advantage of, will only hurt us all in the long run.

Yikes. This certainly complicates matters. I honestly don't have time to make multiple trips a week. I am grateful for all the savings P&G has provided me in the past but this will limit the number of their products I'll be purchasing from now on. (I am not trying to come across as whiny, this is just a fact due to my very restrictive schedule.)

I'm good with 4 per day. Was having to spit up TX's by using only 4 per "shopping trip" anyway. All the olay was done in quanities of 4.

Curious how they would enforce or track this rule. How would store b know that i already used q in store a?

I'm asking so i dont get me or Cvs store in trouble.

Edit: Is this more of a concern for those doing back to back tx?

On one hand, I don't mind because I was only doing four a day and I usually don't do back to back transactions. On the other hand, i do mind that it means another coupon crackdown. :/ Yes, we'll adapt, but I reserve my right to dislike this change.

They wouldn't know you had just used four in store a when shopping at store b, . I think you're right - they are changing the wording to prevent back to back transactions.

They can't keep track, people will just go from store to store. Or like some people do now they just do what cashiers let them do regardless of wording on coupons.

I dont really know the intricacies of store/ mfr redemption but I would think at stores that have loyalty cards I would think it would at least be possible to tell if people are going around the limits. We really need someone on here who has worked at a clearing house...

I think this is kinda redonkulous. I understand why MF are putting these restrictions on the Q's. Like the lady I watched purchase 40 Old Spice Body Sprays in 1 transaction, and was told she was the soul reason that store changed their coupon policy. I followed the 4 coupon rule also, and usually never did more than four in a day anyhow. If I did I always took along hubby or older kids to do a separate transaction, because I assumed this meant per person. Even when I ask for Rain checks at GE if it is for a P&G product I ask them to write 4 on the Raincheck. I am agreeing with Miss D. Most of the stores I go to are at least a half hr away. It is no longer worth my gas, time ,and schedule if I have to go back everyday to get a deal. I would think somewhere in Internet happy land the stores probably already do track coupon usage by card on some report somewhere. I think they already track purchases made with debit/credit cards too. But then I have a little bit of a conspiracy thing going on with a touch of paranoia.

It's possible, but unless it's egregious misuse and/or an employee notices and brings it to someone's attention, I don't think they'll be flagging anyone. Downloading all of the card data takes a long, long time and then to run the required programs, write the formula with the correct variables, and, say, run crosstabs... FOREVER! to expend the time and resources would cost a whole heck of a lot more than catching the occasional rule bender. Sifting through that much data and putting it into something meaningful is quite the exercise.

I agree, we need someone from the clearing house to weigh in. I know when I worked at the grocery store, we put all the coupons by value and added them every week, checked the total against the books, then sent them into the group we were a part of (Supervalue at the time) who would then turn them into the clearing house. On the store level, there might be a clerk that put the coupons in some order in bookkeeping, clerks organizing their coupons to balance their till later... The coupons could go through three or more counts and organizing before they get to a main store that does it again and THEN sends to the clearing house. Those Qs go through a lot... I don't see how the CH could tell by transaction or household to deny payment. I could be wrong, though. This was a few years ago at an independent grocer.

I write for informational purposes. Not because I want anyone to game the system.

I would think its kinda like illegally downloading music and movies on your computer. Everyone knows its illegal. Ppl still do it. The ppl who get in trouble do it on a grand scale. I would think if they were to track, highly doubtful corporations would have resources and energy to devote to ppl using 5 in one transaction vs 100. A lot of guidelines are to protect the local companies that accept the coupon. It gives them power to veto! Clearly ppl don't need 100 bottles of dawn at one time. But its those ppl that forced these rules. Imagine what's its done to locally owned companies!

I agree it would be quite the effort. I just wander what the tipping point would be to make the effort worth it. All that said, I agree. Even if it is unlikely a person will be caught, I think everyone should play by the rules set by the mfr.

I also think that they beep now too, saying "exceeding coupon limit", as when people were doing the aussie/herbal essence deal a while back at CVS when they were 2/5.98 and people were doing 5 sets and using 5 of the coupons and they wondered why the computer beeped, its because you can't use more then 4. The limit has been 4 per transaction for a long time so I don't get why people were using 5 anyway. So I think it tracks per transaction, not necessarily per day per household.
But my question is, I have 2 cards for 2 separate households (mine and my mothers) can I use 8 than since its for 2 separate households and the card info will prove it?

Target not only limits PG, but EVERY coupon to 4 per day per household.

I would say you are within the spirit of the coupon. I can see some resistance at the local store level happening though.

I think that must be set at the store level. I have a friend that had issues with the register using more than 4 like coupons. She said the cashier was friendly and even apologized that the register would not take more than 4. I have used 7, 10 and 12 like coupons at different Targets without issue since she had that problem. All coupons had no restrictions on them (mine and hers) so it wasnt that.

All the Loyal cards are tracking what we are spending. They want to know all your personal information and I think it stinks!!! Why not just lower prices and not make you have to identify yourself when making purchases? Does Rite Aid really need to know that I am buying a pregnancy test??? I also think that the Extreme Shows have made them open their eyes to abusers. I have always looked at couponing as a way to save money.

Many cashiers say "I don't use coupons" like it is a bad thing. I can't imagine surviving without them!!!
