Coupon Policies

Where possible, we recommend you print out coupon policies for the stores where you shop and keep them with you in your coupon binder in case you run into issues while shopping.  Familiarize yourself with the policies of your favorite stores to avoid difficulties at checkout.  Remember, be polite when disputing coupon issues with a cashier or manager.  These policies are good guidelines, but keep in mind that most stores reserve the right to accept or decline coupons at their discretion.

Roundy's ( Pick N' Save) Coupon Policy:

 General Policies:

Roundy’s general coupon policies are as follows:
Internet printed coupons. Coupons printed from the internet must be
legitimate, printed in color or black and white and have the

* “Manufacturer coupon” printed on coupon
*Bar-scan code
*Current expiration date
*Website where printed from must be on coupon

Manufacturer’s coupons for purchased products only. Manufacturer’s
coupons will only be accepted for purchased products. Items received
for free through store promotions (“meal deal” or “buy one, get one
free”) are not considered purchased products; therefore,
manufacturer’s coupons can not be used for these products.

Maximum value of coupons. Coupons are accepted only for products of
equal or greater value; they do not give cash back on coupons. Sales
tax is paid by the customer at full retail.

Free product coupons. Free or “buy one, get one free” product coupons
printed from the internet will not be accepted at Roundy’s stores;
free or “buy one, get one free” product coupons from the newspaper
will be accepted.

Maximum value of internet printed coupons. There is no limit on the
value of an internet printed coupon.

Right of refusal. The store has the right to refuse any coupon printed
from the internet at any time.

Stacking store coupons with manufacturer-issued coupons. A store
coupon can be redeemed with a manufacturer’s coupon for the same item.
Doubled Coupon Policies:

Roundy’s stores doubles coupons (a “doubled coupon” means that a $1
off coupon is equal to $2 off):

Weekly. Every Wednesday – even when it is not explicitly advertised in
the paper.

$25 threshold. Roundy’s formal corporate policy is that the sale price
value of the groceries in your transaction must be at least $25 for
your coupons to be eligible for doubling. However, the registers are
currently programmed (as of March 18, 2010) to double coupons when the
shelf price (the highest price listed on the shelf tag, which is
usually the full, pre-sale price) before coupons is $25. If you plan
your transactions using the shelf price versus the sale price, you do
so at your own risk that the registers have been modified to align
with their formal corporate policy.

Only five. Up to 5 manufacturer’s coupons can be doubled per transaction.
It’s automatic. The registers automatically double the face value of
the first five eligible coupons scanned if your groceries meet the $25
threshold. All that to say, the cashier does not push a button or
manually “approve” you to have doubled coupons. The register just does
The first five. The first 5 eligible coupons scanned will double –
that means you should hand the clerk your 5 highest value coupons
Up to $1. Only coupons valued at less or equal to $1 off will be doubled.
Exceptions. “Buy one, get one free” and “try me free” coupons are not
eligible for doubling.

Coupons that say “Do Not Double.” Some manufacturer-issued coupons say
“do not double” on them. Roundy’s formal policy is that they will not
double these.

Transactions. Roundy’s official policy is that customers are
encouraged to make one transaction to double their coupons, but again,
this will vary from store to store. Most shoppers at Roundy’s stores
will find that they are allowed to make more than one transaction.
