Does Target not take catalinas from other stores?

I tried to use two catalinas that were printed at other stores. Since both indicated they were manufacturer coupons I thought it would be okay, but the cashier wouldn't take them. I pointed out to her that although they were printed from another store's catalina machine, the coupons stated they were issued by the manufacturer, but still it was a no go.

I've never tried this before so I have nothing else to go by. Is this a Target policy or did I get a misinformed cashier?

My husband works in retail and this is what he told me. He said his manager got it from the Catalina company.

If a store offers catalina coupons they will take other store's manufacturer catalina coupons. I dont know how true this really is. Each store makes up their own policy really anyways.

The cashier was wrong for not taking it if it was a manufacturer coupon. It does not matter what store it was printed from. If it happens again ask for the head cashier and point out that it is a manufacturer coupon.

Mine takes them just fine but they are really good about most things so I may be just lucky.

This is a good question! I have this problem all the time, but mostly when trying to use Target Catalina's at other stores. I eventually just gave up & use them at the store they print from if it's a good deal.

Did they say "use at x store" or similar wording? Or did they just have the other store's logo on there? Often, that is what makes the difference.

This could be true. Unfortunately, even mfr admit they cannot force any store to take their MQ so that is the part where YMMV comes in. We just have to deal with each store on a case to case basis.

It was definitely a man. q with the store's logo on it. Otherwise I wouldn't have tried to use it. I guess Target is more strict regarding the q's they take. To be honest, I rarely shop at Target for reasons like this. Oh well.
