Question new Schick $2 off coupon - new wording

Has anyone seen the new Schick $2 off 1 pack of disposable razors that came out in today's Smart Source?
there's a new little thing on it....it says (no cash back if coupon exceeds retail price) ....i find that interesting.

So does this override store policy? I mean at Walmart (at least for me)....that whole .03 isn't something I'm going to get, it will just go towards tax.
So is this coupon saying that basically it'll have to be scaled down to $1.97 if we use it on the packs we've been using it on?

I wonder if more coupons are going to do this and will eliminate overage for us.

Also....why are they having issues with the overage is what I'm interested in....if everyone's going to be getting comped for the money.... if that makes sense.

We use the coupon - get $1.97 razors for free + .03 overage = $2
Walmart turns in the coupon - they get their $2 + .08 cents handling fee from Schick
....so even if Walmart didn't put that .03 towards our total....wouldn't they still be collecting the entire $2.08 from Schick?

I don't know....I guess that wording just made me start to think about how overage could go away if that catches on with companies.
Makes me bummed to think about that because I use that overage to actually buy food and such I need. :/

They will scan it and it will just come off as $2.

As long as they aren't giving you cash back, I don't see the issue. Tax is after coupons here so the 3 cents would be applied to other items.

Have you read the some of the coupons in the Healthy Essentials Smart Source...like the one for Listerine...it states "one coupon per person" and no more than four like coupons for the same product in the same transaction. I can hear the arguments from the cashiers now. That verbage makes absolutely no sense.

I read that too. Just to keep the cashiers at bay, I only use 4 like coupons. I am in wm several times a week so I just pick up 4 of what I have q's for each time I go.

Makes you wonder if legally a company can tell WM if they can give back money or not....I am seeing more and more wording that leaves me wondering. At some point even people who want to q correctly will just throw up their hands and hope the q goes through.

My walmart stopped taking the $2 coupon for the $1.97 packs! In the past I had been able to use them, that is when I could find them in stock, but the last time I was in there the cashier said I couldn't use that coupon on that package. I told her I had done so before and she tried it but the register would not let it go through! UGH!
Oh, well, I guess that whoever hid a bunch of those Schick packs underneath the Bic ones is going to get a surprise when they come back with their coupons and try to buy them!

Lol!!! I love when I find the hidden treasures my fellow couponers hide! I would have stuck a note in there

But, on topic, when 'that show' came along a lot of awesome coupons ended. I don't think overage will end, Walmart is a huge corp. Which has the edge of other stores of giving cash back, and a lot of buying power to the manufacturers putting out these coupons. So, unless it starts hurting Walmart, which is pretty unlikely, I don't think it'll change.

If we didn't have some people using coupons on the wrong products for overages or returning the items they did get overages on in attempt for more money it would probably be different.
It's really easy to say oh well it didn't beep or the cashier didn't say anything, but it's the couponers responsibility to read the wording and use them correctly.

Can someone post a picture of these $1.97 packages? I can't seem to find any multi-packs for less that $4.00.

Never underestimate WalMart's influence on manufacturers. It wouldn't surprise me one bit to find that WalMart publicly advertises giving overage while privately negotiating with manufacturers to add this type of language to their coupons so that they don't actually have to give overage but are able to maintain the illusion that they do.

yeah I have been buying these every time I can but keeping them in stock around here is crazy they are hard to get but I was able to get 5 packs a few days ago and was shocked they had them, but for the past months they have a $3.00 off coupon inside so it's a good money maker. And I didn't think they would be coming out with any more with those coupons but when I got them the other day they sure did still have the $3.00 off coupon inside! And I live in Upstate N.Y. Has anyone else gotten any of these with the coupon in them?

The $3.00 coupon inside of the $1.97 packages are not a money maker because they are not supposed to be used on the $1.97 packages -- it is not the same product. The razors that the $3.00 coupon is good for sell for about 5.97 a package.

Exactly. The $3/1 coupon is for the ST2 Razors. The coupon has a picture of the ones it's for on it,so not sure why people are using it on the $1.97 ones as they are NOT ST2 razors. The pack is 10 plain razors with a BONUS of two ST2 razors.

I was able to use the $2 Schick Q today on the $1.97 pack. I was shocked to find a huge full bin of them! I only had three of the Q's but did purchase the 10 ct plus 2 bonus razor pack that someone else pictured previously. The overage did go towards my other purchases. I even made sure the cashier was aware of the stipulations on the coupons. She took it as they could take them as long as I didn't get money back.

I have not opened my packs yet but it looks like the coupon inside the packaging(for me atleast) states " $3 off schick ST2 OR Slim Twin 12 ct". I did not price out the slim twin packs but I wonder if those packages would still be free or a mm.
