Coupons are a form of payment. That is why it is important to read the fine print before using. Some coupons state "one per customer" or "one per household or order" in fine print. If you have more than one of the same coupons -- you must return to the store at a later date to use it. If shopping with a family member they may use the additional coupon by making a separate transaction.

Before heading to the store -- check the expiration date. Coupons are federally regulated and may not be redeemed past the expirations date. There is one exception -- expired coupons can be donated and used by military families. They are permitted to use expired coupons for up to one year past the expiration date -- on base and at the military commissaries abroad. For more information you can visit or

For now happy shopping!
