Meijer recently updated their coupon policy. It now addresses separating transactions, prohibits opening additional checkout lanes for large coupon orders, and allows some competitors' coupons. Read all the details below.

Meijer Coupon Policy

Meijer accepts manufacturer, Catalina manufacturer, Meijer, Catalina Meijer, mPerks, internet, and competitor coupons within certain guidelines.

  • Coupons must be presented on or before the expiration date
  • All coupon terms and conditions must be met and validated by the checkout register
  • Customers may use one manufacturer coupon (paper or digital) per item.
  • Customers may also combine one manufacturer coupon per item with applicable Meijer coupon(s) where allowed under coupon redemption terms.
  • Transactions cannot be broken up to avoid coupon stacking restrictions
  • Separate checklanes will not be opened or designated for customers with large coupon orders
  • Manufacturer coupons and Catalina manufacturer coupons require the Customer to pay sales tax on the full retail amount
  • Meijer, Catalina Meijer, and competitor coupons require the Customer to pay sales tax only on the discounted price
  • Meijer will accept coupons from major competitors in each store’s trading area, for Grocery and or for Health and Beauty Care items
  • Meijer will accept coupons from major competitors in each store’s trading area for General Merchandise items only if the competitor’s price point is included. The item must be the identical item on the coupon for the match to occur.
  • Meijer does not accept competitor coupons for beer, wine, liquor, cigarettes, double and triple coupons, clearance, percent off, total trans- action discounts, special promotions, gift card promotions, limited quantity items, mail-in rebate offers, and going out of business sales
  • Meijer reserves the right to limit coupon quantities and to determine the order of application of multiple coupons and/or promotions

the only part of their new policy that i have an issue with is "Transactions cannot be broken up to avoid coupon stacking restrictions." i think we all know that "stacking" is using a store coupon and a manufacturer coupon on the same item purchased. ok, except my meijer store says that what it means is that you can't do multiple transactions for any purpose. tried to reason with them but they won't budge. they say that in order to do another transaction i have to leave the store and come back in. and i can't load up my cart with all the items i plan to buy, purchase some items, make my way to the exit, do an about-face, go back to my full cart, grab some more items and head to the nearest check lane. they say i have to go get the items off the shelves. this is truly ridiculous, most of all because the are not following their brand new policy. they can't seem to understand that stacking isn't the same as doubling coupons, which seems to be the real issue here. they went on to "explain" that what the new policy says is that purchases can't be broken into multiple transactions to avoid restrictions on coupon doubling. they must be using a different dictionary than the rest of us. stacking is not synonomous with doubling. but what can you do? already shot them an email.
