Shaw's Official Coupon Policy

I requested a copy of Shaw's official coupon policy a month or so ago, but never received it. Just when I'd given up hope that such a thing actually exists, I stumbled across the following on the Money-Saving Maine-iac blog. Is Teresa a member here? All credit goes to her for obtaining it.

Quote:
Shaw's Coupon Policy
*One manufacturer's coupon may be accepted per item if legally permitted.

ME: Coupons may not be accepted for milk.

ME, NH & VT: Other legal restrictions may apply

*We double valid manufacturer's coupons with a value of up to $ .99. Coupons over $ .99 are redeemed at face value.

*No more than 6 like items may be purchased per customer per day using the Double Manufacturer's Coupon offer.

*Only one manufacturer's coupon may be accepted per item.

*The amount of redemption will be credited during your transaction and printed on your register receipt.

*Redemption may not exceed the value of the item you are purchasing.

*We accept up to a total of 6 triple store coupons in any combination of Shaw's and/or a competitor on manufacturer coupons valued up to $ .99.

*Shaw's accepts internet coupons with some restrictions. We will not accept internet coupons that offer a free product, that have a value greater than $4.99, and/or that do not have a scanning UPC bar code.

*Coupons excluded from doubling or tripling: coupons for cigarette and tobacco products, coupons for free items and coupons that specifically state "do not double".
What do you all think? Any surprises? I noticed that it says Shaw's will not accept Internet coupons "that offer a free product," but I'm not clear whether this is meant to include bogo IPs. It's certainly being interpreted that way at times.

I also notice that the policy doesn't address competitor's coupons.

I am a bit confused about the TRIPLE part? What do they mean by that?

I am not seeing anything that is new to me but its good to see it in print.

This surprised me too. My understanding was that the limit was per transaction, but I've never tested it. I probably will this week.

Quote:

I think this might refer in a veiled way to competitor coupons that triple MQs, but I'm not sure.

I too noticed this just this past week when I was preparing booklets for an upcoming class that I am teaching. I couldn't believe it when I saw PER DAY. As an honest couponer I am going to honor their policy and stick to the no more than 6 per day rule. Such a bummer but thankfully I am about 8 minutes from my store so I don't mind making an extra trip or two per week.

Thanks for posting this, I hope we can all vow to be honest in the year ahead!

What this doesn't state is that "Coupon policies can vary from area, district and store". My copy of the policy does state that. The key is to know your store.

Do you think it's dishonest for me to test to see how my store enforces this rule? I'm not offended by your implication, just curious.

I don't want to speak for the stores, but, it seems as though they use these more as guidelines than rules. My Shaws has NEVER bothered us doing multiple transactions.
I know that many of the "rules" seem to be left up to the each stores management as to whether or not to be strict.
Any thoughts?

I think you can go even further and say that enforcement is up to each individual cashier...

My store has never enforced the limit of 6 per day! I have done upwards of 9 or more transactions in a days time where they will just open a separate register for me so I have had times where I have used way more than 6 per day.And as stated the policy may vary by store depending on the manager. My manager is a couponer herself who loves to do the catalina deals but she is also super strict about doubling the DND. There is no telling where she would go with this rule. If I hadn't read that then I wouldn't change how I have been doing things. I would love for my manager to tell me that she doesn't enforce it but I don't want to ask her and ruin it for others who still want to try it.

I won't judge others on how they do their job, and I do see couponing as a job of sorts. I will only judge myself on how I do mine. I believe that if you feel it is okay than for you it is okay and vice versa for me, I'm in no position to accuse anyone of being dishonest. Chances are there won't be a need for a test because this has been in the policy for a while now and hardly anyone enforces it.

Shaws used to occasionally triple coupons-The last time they did was more than 5 years ago.

I also think it depends on how busy the store is as to whether or not they will enforce the 6 per day doubling. And allowing multiple transactions. From my experience..I have had no issues with multiple transactions

I have never had any issues doing multiple transactions at the Tilton Shaw's. In fact, usually the CM ends up joking with me about it. They've mentioned a guy who will spend 6+ hours at a time doing multiple runs and they act amazed.

Judith,

The Clinton store is all about changing the rules on a daily basis. Heck I've been in there when I've seen the FEM come up and tell the cashiers 'don't accept this or that anymore' .

Their policy is to not accept more than 6 like coupons for an item, PERIOD. Doesn't matter if it doubles or not. And if you have both a store coupon and a manu coupon, they will only allow you to use 3 of each.

I would suggest you go up to the service desk and ask for a copy of their store coupon policy. And take notice when you're at the check out..the policy is posted right there.

At Shaws on Sun. 4/25/10 and they said - no longer accepting internet coups over one dollar, will not double internet coups (even if they don't say 'do not double), and as far as BOGO's for a product over a dollar, they will not accept it. We had to go to Stop & Shop to use our BOGO Facebook Coupon from Lays Chips. I wonder if they've updated this in their written policy and plan to check. Stores are revolting against couponers. It seems they don't like how we've learned to play the coupon game to our advantage. If u ask me, it's Shaw's loss. Stores not only get paid back the amount of the coupon, they receive additional monies for sending it in. It's their problem that they've got a double coupon policy but as usual, small consumers end up losing to big corporations.

Thank you for posting this, OP. The only thing I hope for is that they will continue with their doubles. With all the changes going at Shaws one never knows.

It is pretty comical, I had totally forgotten about how they used to triple years ago on "special occaisions" LOL. But I wasn't into heavy duty couponing like I am now, back then, so I missed out.

They haven't done triples in like 6 years-they did it a couple of times when I first started using coupons. I can't believe they will be undoubling all internet coupons-If they're trying to drive couponers away, they might succeed.

We had to go to Stop & Shop to use our BOGO Facebook Coupon from Lays Chips. I wonder if they've updated this in their written policy and plan to check. Stores are revolting against couponers. It seems they don't like how we've learned to play the coupon game to our advantage. If u ask me, it's Shaw's loss. Stores not only get paid back the amount of the coupon, they receive additional monies for sending it in. It's their problem that they've got a double coupon policy but as usual, small consumers end up losing to big corporations.
Which Shaws did you go to? Wow, that is bad news. I wondered how long stores would allow freebies and cheap items, since there have been so many news stories and articles about couponing.

I went to Shaws in New Bedford (MA) on King's Highway. You're right about stores "allow"ing freebies, etc., b/c of the publicity. They won't let people win, even if they (stores) are still making money. And for every coupon-er, there are 10 (or who knows how many) who aren't, so the store still wins in the end. It was all about saving money, lowest prices, etc., and then when we learn how to make the most out of sales and coups, they decide to take it away. I'm a Neilson Home Scanner and leave out my freebies (such as using extra bucks and coupons, etc., giving me a zero balance due) from my weekly scans, as I'm concerned that's just another way for companies to figure out how to take the deals away. Also coupons are being limited to one print - check out this new bricks coupon for .70 off Pillsbury Crescents. You can't hit user back and print it twice, and you can't re-enter the page and print it again. ONE PRINT! Even the site I got it from said she was only able to print it once. Companies are taking away the ability to get 2 coupons now too! I hope you can follow this link and see the one-print limit. Well nevermind that link, this blog won't let me post a link w/less than 15 posts. Go to visionofangels2002 (dot) blogspot (dot) com where I'll post the pillsbury link. Obv the (dot) means dot/period - . - I just can't post it that way here b/c it's a link

Did they tell you this was the new corporate policy? I hope these new "rules" are in effect just at that one store. I'll be heading to mine tonight with six Ronzoni IPs that should double (up to the sale price at least). We'll see whether I make it home with my pasta or not.

I totally noticed the coupons being limited to one yesterday when I printed the .70/1 Pillsbury crescents. I thought I had done something wrong or my computer/printer was not working correctly. Now I know it only allows one print. This couponing thing is getting to be more and more difficult. I hope they don't take everything away from us. I am just now getting used to the system and seems like it is evolving into something new.

My Ronzoni IPs doubled at my store when I went on Monday. I hope it doubled for you too!
