Below is the CVS Coupon Policy. *NOTE* CVS does not offer their coupon policy on their web site. There for, the information below was gathered by researching multiple blogs, on-line searches and confirmed with my local store.
CVS registers are set to allow 1 CVS coupon and 1 manufacturer coupon per item. Free coupons or “offers at the register” (OAR’s) are unearned and issued to you as a valued member of the CVS/pharmacy ExtraCare program. These coupons take the form of “open ended” coupons such as $3 off $15 or a certain dollar amount off a specific item. In any given transaction our registers will allow only one “open ended” coupon per transaction. CVS Extra Buck coupons are earned when you make a qualifying purchase. These print out instantly at the register upon reaching the threshold for the offer. You can use more than one Extra Buck coupon provided the purchase threshold has been met for each offer amount on a per-transaction basis.
In the case where a particular item is on sale for “buy one get one free” (BOGO), you are only allowed to use one manufacturer’s BOGO coupon. For instance, if Revlon lipstick is on sale for BOGO, you can use one manufacturer’s BOGO coupon. You would get both items free and pay any applicable tax. We reserve the right to limit quantities after the first purchase. If our store is running a sale for BOGO, you can use two manufacturer’s coupons for a specific dollar amount off. For example, if Revlon lipstick is on sale at our store for BOGO, you can use two $1.00 off Revlon lipstick manufacturer coupons.
CVS/pharmacy does accept manufacturers’ coupons that have been obtained from manufacturer sponsored and/or authorized Web sites. The coupon should be complete and contain a bar code that can be scanned at the register. If the coupon does not scan, the cashier should politely inform you that we cannot accept your coupon. We do not allow manual overrides at the register for coupons printed from the Internet. CVS/pharmacy will not accept offers printed from unauthorized Internet postings or reproductions, copies, or facsimiles.
CVS does not accept competitors’ coupons for front store items. We feel that our sales and ExtraCare program are comparable if not better than any sales or coupons offered by our competitors. We also do not accept any expired coupons, CVS or otherwise. We do not “double” or “triple” coupons.
Below is the Winn-Dixie Coupon Policy. *NOTE* Winn-Dixie does not offer their coupon policy on their web site. There for, the information below was gathered by researching multiple blogs, on-line searches and confirmed with my local store.
Winn-Dixie's Coupon Policies
• To get the best deals, sale prices and to get and use store coupons, you need a Winn-Dixie Reward Card. Reward Cards are free, you can apply online and they will mail it to you.
• If you are pregnant or have a child under two, sign up for their Baby Club. You can sign up online, but you must have received your Reward Card first. Being a Baby Club member gets you special discounts and even more coupons.
• The registers at Winn-Dixie print Catalina coupons. Most are manufacturer coupons.
• The registers also print out $/$$ coupons. Such as, get $10.00 off a $50.00 purchase. These should print out once each week you shop with your reward card. But you cannot use it until the following week. Only one of these can be used per purchase.
However, when you get $10.00 with your 200 Baby Club points, it is treated like cash and gives you $10.00 off any purchase exceeding $10.00.
COUPON TIP: Give the cashier your $/$$ coupon FIRST to ring through, before giving all other coupons. Next, give any Baby Club Rewards.
If your other coupons make your total lower than the amount to qualify for the $/$$ coupon, you wouldn't be able use it. But if your order is over $50 in products, and you use your $/$$ coupon first, then your remaining coupons could easily bring your total to $20 or even better!
• Winn-Dixie doubles all manufacturer coupons up to 50c everyday! Except in Florida, parts of Louisiana and some coastal Alabama stores.
• Buy one, get one free (BOGO) sale items ring up like this: First item rings up full price, second item rings up free. If you only buy one of the items it will ring up full price, not half price. You have to buy BOTH items to take advantage of the deal.
• You can use coupons on Buy One Get One free (BOGO) items. As an example, if a product is on sale for Buy One Get One Free and you have two $1.00 off coupons for that product, you can use both coupons. Your store may vary on this.
• Overage is generally allowed. If you buy a product for $1.95, but have a coupon for $2.00 - they will take $2.00 off your bill. They will not give you back money, but it can be applied to another item in your order.
• Winn-Dixie does not ad match or take competitor's (other store's) coupons.
