Dollar Tree Changes Their Coupon Policy!
Dollar Tree began taking coupons August 26, 2012, since they are so new to it, they are making changes and tweaks to their policy as time goes on.
They have issued a new policy as of 3/1/13.
From what I see, they have added this:
•We accept coupons for over a dollar on multiple items if the coupon amount does not exceed the combined retail price of the items indicated.
•We accept up to four (4) like coupons per household per day.
So, the first one says to me that they will take a $2/2, but not a $5/3. So, basically they will take a coupon that is for more than 1 item, but not if it goes over the price of the items combined.
In the example I used above – they will take a $2/2 because that is basically $1 off 1 and we know that most everything in the store is $1. But, they won’t take a $5 off 3 because 3 items would be $3 and the coupon is for $5 off, so they are saying they won’t take that.
Now, that is odd to me because one of the rules they didn’t change was:
We accept coupons for over a dollar on a single item. The coupon value will be reduced to the purchase price of the item.
Which says you CAN use a coupon for over the amount of the item (however, it does say single item), they will just adjust the coupon down to the price of the item. So, they may change it, yet again.
The other change was the accepting 4 “like” coupons per household per day. That means if you have 10 coupons for Peanut Butter, you can only use 4 of those a day. It does NOT mean that you can only use 4 coupons total per household per day. The “Like” is the important wording here. You can use 4 coupons on peanut butter, and 4 coupons on jelly, and so on. You could even use 8 peanut butter coupons, IF you can find 2 different sets of coupons for the same product (now I am just making it too confusing! Sorry!)
So, what are your thoughts on the changes? Do you use coupons at Dollar Tree? Have you had any issues? Be sure to make a copy of the new policy and carry it with you when you shop!
