Here is what they DON’T tell you…
The $400.00 Total is BEFORE Coupons…. KIND OF…
Here is an example
The first item on my Reciept is Lucky Charms Cereal Regular Price $3.99 On Sale for $1.99 and I had a Digital Coupon for $0.50.
What they accumulate towards the promotion is the $1.49 price point AFTER the store sale and the Digital Coupon.
Only sale prices AFTER your digital coupon count towards the promotion.
The next thing you should know is about COUPONS.
“SC” in the coupons portion of your Receipt is a STORE COUPON, and these are NOT COUNTED towards the promotion.
“MC” in the coupons portion of your Receipt is a MANUFACTURE COUPON, and these ARE Counted towards the promotion.
So, as you see above (and going back to the Lucky Charms for a minute) I had a $0.50 coupon for the Lucky Charms. If you remember, we had said that the price point going towards the promotion is $1.49. Since the store DOUBLES the Manufacture Coupon, that is considered a STORE COUPON, so it will actually REMOVE $0.50 from the promotion price… making the Total that I received in POINTS for the Lucky Charms $0.99.
Let me try to sum that up for you…
Since ShopRite is getting paid BACK for the face value of a coupon, they are counting it just as they would CASH towards the promotion…. however, if the coupon DOUBLES .. that is a Store Coupon (they are not getting paid back the double price) So in the case of the Lucky Charms, it was a $0.50 coupon (face value) so although the coupon doubled and I only paid $0.49 for the item… I received credit for $0.99.
So, Because of Coupons… I spent $13 out of my pocket… but got $26 towards the promotion.
Also, Catalina Coupons (although not shown) are considered MANUFACTURE COUPONS and are counted towards the promotion just like cash.
As one final example, I am going to break down my whole receipt above for you.
