If an item is BOGO can I use a coupon on each one?
Specifically, there is a BOGO sale on Blue buffalo dog food. I have 2 coupons for $4 off each bag. Can I use both coupons? One on each one even tho 1 is free?
It depends on the store, if I understand your question correctly. It’s my understanding that at some Kroger stores, each BOGO item rings up at half price and a coupon can be used on both—while at other Kroger stores one rings up full price and the other at free, and only one coupon can be used. At Rite Aid, their policy specifically prohibits using a coupon on a free item (although I think for a long time their registers would accept coupons on both the full price item and the free one—don’t know if that’s still true since they’ve recently reprogrammed their registers).
Check the specific store's coupon policy. Publix will allow one coupon per item with BOGO sales. Winn-Dixie will not take coupons for the free item in a BOGO sale.
To think of the Kroger rules differently, you can only use a coupon for an item you paid more for than the value of the coupon.
So for stores that ring up as a true BOGOF like mine, Kroger policy is no coupons are allowed.
As others have said, if your store rings up half off for both in a BOGOF deal, then you can only use Qs that are less than the 'half-price' paid for each.
This also relates to BOGO50%. If something is $1.50 BOGO50% off, and that results in one being 75¢, so you can't use $1 DQ on that item. You may get by with a $1 PQ, but the worker will likely not apply it if they look at the price paid.
@What-Shot oh I'm sorry! Lol thanks for reminding me. I went to Frys and they would only accept one coupon since the 2nd bag of food was free. Bummer! But still a good deal as I paid $7 bucks after $4coup for 2 bags of blue buffalo dog food so I didn't pout for very long.
@Rickibotta I was so hoping each bag would ring up 50% off so I could use 2 coups, but Frys did indeed zero out the second bag. This is the first bogo from Frys I've done so it seems I still learn something new everyday. Keeps me on my toes!
