The Albertsons Corporate policy states the following:
Valid coupons are accepted if the customer has purchased the necessary merchandise.
Coupons must be redeemed at the time of purchase of the specific product. Coupons may not be redeemed after the transaction has completed.
Expired coupons are not accepted.
Coupons cannot be converted to cash under any circumstances.
Internet Coupons: Coupons printed from an internet website presented for redemption with a qualifying purchase.
Albertsons DOES NOT accept internet coupons containing the following conditions:
a. Free product offers that do not require a purchase
b. Redemption value exceeding $5.00
c. Absence of UPC bar code
d. Photocopied internet coupons. Most internet sites will print a time and date stamp on the coupons, and limit each ISP address to two coupons total. If multiple coupons have the same time and date stamp this could be an indicator the coupon was photocopied, and should not be accepted.
My reader Aimee was having trouble with her local store taking internet coupons, because she did not print them in color. I suggested she email corporate to get an official coupon policy. She was happy to get a quick reply with this info. Thanks Aimee for passing this along! You may want to make a copy of this and keep it in your coupon binder!
