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

If you have issues with your Meijer store accepting your other competitor coupons, read THIS!–>>http://www.amittenfullofsavings.com/meijer-accept-store-coupons-info-answer/

  • 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

Here’s a break down of what that means:
• Coupons must be presented on or before the expiration date

This means you can not use an expired coupon.

• All coupon terms and conditions must be met and validated by the checkout register

This means that you can not use a coupon for something it does not allow. For example: if the coupon says it is valid for 9-12oz and you scanned a 12.2oz, you can not use the coupon. If it says the coupon is valid for an amount off 2 items, you can not use it to purchase just one.

• Customers may use one manufacturer coupon (paper or digital) per item.

Pretty basic. You can’t use two manufacturer coupons on a single item.

• Customers may also combine one manufacturer coupon per item with applicable Meijer coupon(s) where allowed under coupon redemption terms.

As long as the mPerks coupons don’t restrict the stack, you can.   

You must now read the terms on the mPerks coupons. Some of them will now state that they cannot be combined with any other coupon or limit one coupon per item. If it only states that it cannot be combined with any other Meijer Discount Coupons, you are still allowed to combine it with a Manufacturer coupon.

• Transactions cannot be broken up to avoid coupon stacking restrictions.

Per an email response I received from Meijer, this applies to not breaking up orders to get extra doubles in the regions that double. They made no mention of not being able to do multiple transactions otherwise.

• Separate check lanes will not be opened or designated for customers with large coupon orders

They won’t open an extra lane for you if you have lots of coupons. (Though I think it is strange that they wrote out this rule, I think the non coupon users are the ones who will be more upset about it. I’m still going to use my coupons.)

• Manufacturer coupons and Catalina manufacturer coupons require the Customer to pay sales tax on the full retail amount

If you buy Shampoo for $1.00 and the state charges $.06 sales tax and you have a $1.00/1 coupon, you must pay the $.06 sales tax. Catalina manufacturer coupons are the ones that are OYNSO and say something like “Courtesy of Kellogg’s” on them.

• Meijer, Catalina Meijer, and competitor coupons require the Customer to pay sales tax only on the discounted price

If you buy Shampoo for $3.00 and you have a $2.00 OYNSO Custom Coupon Offer (“Courtesy of Meijer”), you pay just $1.06, the amount remaining after coupon + tax on the remaining amount.

• Meijer will accept coupons from major competitors in each store’s trading area, for Grocery and or for Health and Beauty Care items

Per a response from Meijer, this means the same town. Which means you can use a Target coupon or a Kroger coupon since they are within Meijer trading area.

• 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.

This means that they will not take competitors coupons for % off, BOGO or otherwise for General Merchandise unless there is an actual price on the coupon. If the coupon only states BOGO, then no. However, if the coupon is for BOGO at $4.99, you should be able to use it.

• 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

No use of non item specific Register Rewards, Extra Care Bucks, UP Rewards or the like. However, if you get a coupon from the Catalina machine at Walgreens that is for $3.00 off 1 Huggies, you should be able to use it. Also, no $5/$25 or the like will be allowed.

• Meijer reserves the right to limit coupon quantities and to determine the order of application of multiple coupons and/or promotions

Meaning that you can plan, but they determine in what order they scan them if they want. They can also limit the number of coupons you use if they want. I don’t expect that to happen unless you are doing something you shouldn’t be.

    Just so I understand – if I get a $2.00 OYNO from Kroger, I can use this at Meijer towards my order? I prefer Meijer shopping but sometimes we go to Kroger. I hate having to go back JUST so that coupon doesn’t expire. 🙁 Thanks in advance!

  2. Meijer’s currently has a buy one get deal on frito lay chips. I have a coupon from frito lay to receive a free bag of chips (up to 4.29). Can I use it and get both bags free?

  3. Hello. I was wondering what the policy is for meijer if the coupon exceeds the price of the product?

  4. What is the policy for B2G1 free sale and using a B1G1 free coupon?

    • Nicole Lake says:

      As long as you are paying for 1 item you should get the 2 products for free. Meijer doesn’t allow the use of a coupon on a FREE item. So if the sale was buy 1 get 1 free you couldn’t use the buy 1 get 1 FREE coupon but since it is buy 2 get 1 free you should be ok.
