I just had a reader point something out to me that I had not yet noticed. You might want to dig out your P&G Insert from 9/26/2010 and take a look at all of the P&G coupons. You will now see something listed in the fine print: LIMIT OF 4 LIKE COUPONS in same shopping trip.
So, that means you can only use 4 – $2.00/1 Always coupons in your shopping trip. If you do need to use more than 4 coupons, there is a way around this. You can just run multiple transactions and the store clerks should be able to do that for you. That being said, a reader did have an issue using 5 total coupons and one of them not deducting the correct amount from her purchase – so she had to do a separte transaction and it worked. So, it makes me feel that it is REALLY 4 P&G coupons in a single purchase.
I personally do not understand why they are doing this. They put the coupons out there to be used and now are trying to impose limits. It actually makes me not want to purchase their products and I still am trying to understand the though process behind this. Is it because they don’t want to pay so much for coupon reimbursement? If that is the case, then, why even produce coupons? I really don’t get it. And yes – it irritates me!
I am going to email their customer service about this and would recommend you do the same thing — here is a link to their email address. We can only make a difference if we are willing to speak up!
