Store Couponing Policies

I think this is the most helpful post I could write about couponing. Every store has their own policies for couponing and you do not want to go in not knowing what they will allow or you will be disappointed. I have a color-coded Excel spreadsheet with all of this information, but I cannot post it on here. If you are interested, email me at ashley-webber@hotmail.com and I will gladly email it to you.

When Do the Stores Run the Deals?

Wednesday - Tuesday
Harris Teeter, Lowes, Food Lion

Sunday - Saturday
Kroger
CVS, Walgreens, Rite Aid

*It's best to go the first day and/or the middle of the "week" as that is when they have a good stock.
