New Coupon Terms

McNeil

While looking through my inserts today, I came across some terms on a few coupons I had not seen before.  **Limit one coupon per person. No more than 4 coupons (of any kind) for the same product in the same transaction. **

I am not a lawyer, but I am going to take a stab at trying to explain what I believe this means.  Here goes:

Limit one coupon per person: A customer may only use one of these coupons on one item, ever. You may not use another one in another transaction,  go to another store or come back to the store.  Obviously, this is a term that will be very hard for manufactures to enforce.  However, the store, may make their best effort to uphold the terms when they can. I wouldn’t try doing two transactions with the same cashier, on the same day without asking first.  On the other hand, the store you are shopping with today,  will have no idea if you used this coupon at another store earlier.  This is, of course, an ethical dilemma for couponers.  You will have to decide for yourself, what is appropriate, and use these coupons accordingly.

No more than 4 coupons (of any kind) for the same product in the same transaction: If you buy more of the same item in the same transaction you may use up to 3 other coupons on the same item.  For example, if you purchased 4 of the Clean & Clear on the coupon above, you could use one of the above coupons, two printables and a peelie in the same transaction. You are always free to do another transaction with any more coupons you may have.

Clear as mud, right? Just do your best, if you have questions, ask the cashier or manager of the store you are shopping, what their policy is.  Read the terms on the coupon for yourself, before the purchase.  Bloggers, like myself, can make mistakes or miss important terms.

How do you feel about the terms on this coupon?   Please post your comments below. 🙂
