Thanks to Freetail Therapy for the Photo!
I know we are ALL thrilled that the Dollar Tree has started accepting Manufacturer coupons!! I had the opportunity to try this out yesterday and it worked out great!! However, when couponing the Dollar Tree or any other store it is imperative that we use our coupons ethically!
A lot of website are posting the above REDPLUM.COM coupon and telling people to use it at the Dollar Tree on Disney Items, making them free. The above coupon was NOT intended for Disney pencils, stickers or any other Disney product other than vitamins.
If we read the fine print of the above coupon you will see the following:
This coupon is to be redeemed by Nature Smart. Nature Smart is a Vitamin ONLY company. Even though this coupon states it can be used on ANY, the retailer will NOT BE PAID if it is used on anything OTHER than vitamins. Dollar Tree does not sell Disney or Marvel Vitamins, at least at any store I have visited!
Use but don’t ABUSE our couponing privileges!!
Last year Rite Aid decided to change the coupon policy to no longer allow BOGO coupons on BOGO sales, they also quit letting us use (2) coupons on BOGO sales. Well here is another change that will really be limiting my time in Rite Aid!! I am disappointed to let you now the changes in the +UP Program. This is not supposed to start until next week, but some areas may see these changes this week.
“+UP Rewards may not be redeemed until 6am local time the next day after issuance. All +UP Rewards expire two weeks after issuance date unless specified otherwise on receipt. +UP Rewards must be used in one transaction and any unused portion shall be forfeited. +UP Reward not valid on all items.”
***This is NOT confirmed in all areas but +UP Rewards may be loaded to your Wellness + Card and no longer print on your receipt. You can however choose to have your rewards printed.
What does this mean to couponers?
Well basically it means we will no longer get to do GREAT same day scenarios:( I am not sure about you, but I will be highly unlikely to make more than one trip to Rite Aid a week! It would have to be a SUPER deal!
Starting August 30, Rite Aid Video Values will be tied to the free loyalty program wellness+, making it even easier to use all of Rite Aid’s savings programs. Existing members of wellness+ who wish to check out the new Video Values offers will only need to enter their current wellness+ user name and password to access the resulting printable offers.
CVS just released a printable “OFFICIAL” Coupon Policy! YAY!! Maybe this will clear up any questions! You can go HERE to print this and add it to your binder! (Thanks to Michael for emailing)

I hate to have to tell you this, but unfortunately (you can probably thank TLC for it) Rite Aid CHANGED the Coupon Policy!! The worst part of the change to me is..they will NO longer let you use a BOGO coupon with on a BOGO sale!!! I know I just told you in recent classes that you could do this and get BOTH items FREE! Thats what happens sometimes, policies change! When I told you that,, it was the policy! Here is the new policy! You can Print it HERE. Don’t hold your breath, because I am sure more stores will be changing policies!
