Do All Grocers Accept Printable Grocery Coupons?

Most grocers and drugstores (including big guys like Wal-Mart and Target) accept printable coupons. The coupons you find on aren’t “hey, try these and see if they work” coupons. They’re bonafide, printable coupons that you should feel confident and comfortable taking with you to your favorite store. However, if you’re unsure of your grocer’s policy on acceptance of printed Internet coupons, a quick call to their corporate customer service department will answer all of your questions. Ask for a printable statement of the stores printable coupon policy to have for your records. And hey, if you hear your store won’t take your coupons let us know and we’ll get on it.

Are there any steps I can take to be sure the coupon is not fraudulent?

Yes, print all your Internet coupons from; did you think we weren’t going to say that? Also, the coupon should:

  1. Say “Manufacturer Coupon” and show a valid remit address for the manufacturer. This address ensures the coupon can be processed for payment.
  2. Have a scan-able bar code.
  3. Have an expiration date.
  4. Not be a photocopy.
