limiting 4 like coupons

yesterday I was at Target purchasing cat food with the Fancy Feast coupons that are buy 3 get 1 free can. I had 10 coupons ready to use, 40 cans of cat food. this isn't the first time I did this transaction, I've been going in a couple times a week doing the same transaction (10 coupons, 40 cans)with no problems.

This time the guy told me there is now a limit of 4 coupons per item, so I was "oh ok..." there were people in line behind me so I didn't want to hassle over it there and went up to customer service and they told me the same thing. The supervisor was there and said it's a new rule to prevent shelf clearing (I'm thinking ok, but this is cat food I have here, it's not like it's a hot sale item).

is this really a new rule at Target? I know they recently changed their coupon policy but I don't see any limit of 4.

I have not heard this at either of my stores recently but in the past these rules seem to come and go in my area. The store closest to my mom's house tends to have these rules when it is convenient or when they do not like a particular customer. Me and my mom can go shopping together and she will have no problem and I do every time - to the point that I stopped shopping there for months because every time was a struggle.

I would wait a while and try again because like I said sometimes the rules change quickly.

I just looked at the Target website's coupon policy and nothing there says limit 4 like q's.
I would try printing that out and bringing it with you. If they argue then just say "Its not in the policy so how am I to know about this rule?"
Might work?

Arguing the it is not in your policy has never worked at my Target. They always say that it is up to each store manager to decide their own policies.

I'd call the corporate office is this is the case. I've found that if corporate says they are wrong, they are more than happy to discuss it with said manager on your behalf.

Each store manager can tweek their own policy including limiting the number of like coupons. I beleive we will continue to see "rules" like this while extremem couponing is airing and more and more people run out to buy 40 cans of something 2 or 3 times per week... No offense original poster... I don't give a rats behind how many cat foods you buy but I'm just sayin... I have always found the key to Target is to fly under the radar, although I myself have pushed the envelope too... especially with those apparel coupons... love me some free clothes

I'm sorry your store manager appears to have implemented this rule but I believe they are well within their rights to do so. I would not call customer service over something so trivial.

The Bethlehem, GA store has instituted a one like per transaction rule and Snellville has gone to a 3 like per trans all within the last week.

I have 2 Target stores near me, one Super and one not.

A few weeks ago at the Super Target I was trying to do the buy 2 Clorox 2 get a $5 GC deal (it is over now). I had 6 Clorox 2s and there were plenty left on the shelf. I had a Q for each and the cashier told me that they had just started a new policy that if you are using Qs you can only buy 5 of that item (don't get me started on the fact that he said it was only for coupon users to prevent shelf clearing and if I wasn't using Qs I could buy as many as I wanted). So I put 2 back and just bought 4.

That same week I went to my non-Super Target and they told me that they didn't have a limit.

I have since gone back to the Super Target where I was told they had a new policy and the cashier I went to said she had never heard that and let me use more Qs.

I think it is just a whatever that cashier wants to do at that time sometimes.

That's what my mom & I were discussing that it's only a rule for couponers not everyone else & isn't fair. As long as we follow the coupon policies and not clear shelfs we shouldn't have a limit. If there's a limit they should limit everyone coupon or not!

I was at Target a few weeks ago and the lady in front of me was buying several items with coupons, but no more of 4 of each item. The cashier told her that she could not use her coupons because they states no more than 4 "like" items. He told her that her items were similar (like all cleaning products) so she could not use them. She was very nice to him and told him she thought he might be mistaken because that is not what the policy is, but he insisted so she just did not buy the items that she couldn't use the coupons on. I thought this was crazy.
