We all shop at different stores, and each of those different stores has a different coupon policy. It is important to know the coupon policies of your store so you can coupon ethically and correctly.
Some stores – like Aldi and Trader Joe’s – do not accept coupons and pride themselves on their everyday low prices. Club stores – like Sam’s Club and Costco – offer occasional store instant deals but do not accept any other coupons. Most grocery stores do accept manufacturer coupons and digital coupons.
Coupon policies have changed dramatically in the past years and continue to change. I have often handed my coupons to a checkout clerk who was not aware of the policy of their own store. This makes it even more important for you to know your store coupon policies.
For that reason, I have compiled a list of many official coupon policies around the country. Here are the current official coupon policies for you to reference. Look through the list and see which ones apply to you and the stores where you shop. You can even print off a copy of the appropriate coupon policy and stick it in the back of your coupon box or binder for future reference.

I hope these policies make the legalities of couponing easier. I will continue to update these policies periodically. If you have a store request, let me know and I will try to track down an official policy to add to this list!
