Grocery Store Policies

I am a member of SavvyDollar.Org and visit their forums often. One of the biggest gripes you will see from those who post is that each store's individual location can have their own store policies. If you shop at more than one location, this can be pretty aggravating. So when couponing at these local stores, don't be caught off guard, make sure you are familiar with your favorite store's rules.

I requested a post of these policies and it was approved to be made into a "sticky post" once I gathered the information. While compiling this list we found out some really interesting things that we weren't aware of at some of our local stores, for example...

  • Harris Teeter proudly displays that they provide funds to local schools when you link it to your card. Everytime you shop, a percentage of the sales is sent to local schools.
  • Food Lion allows you to link up with both schools AND charities in the community.
  • Lowes Foods accepts local supermarket or supercenter competitor’s circular or direct mail coupons for dollars off the entire order. (examples include Food Lion, Harris Teeter, Bi-Lo, Kroger, Super Target, Super K-Mart, Wal-mart).
  • Kroger now has digital coupons that can loaded directly onto your card. In fact most of your Grocery Shopper cards are able to accept digital downloads - No clipping necessary!

Please take time to review the 
Grocery Store Policies for the above mentioned stores on the Savvy Dollar site. It is full of valuable information on coupons, baby stuff, finances, recipes drug and big box stores.  Most importantly it is a community of folks who really know their stuff! Coupon swapping with this group of avid deal seekers is highly recommended!
