Coupon Acceptance: (Per the Meijer Coupon Policy)
Meijer accepts manufacturer coupons, including internet printables (see HERE) and select competitor “catalinas” (see HERE, and more details below). They do not accept expired coupons, reserve the right to limit quantities and do NOT allow overage. If a coupon has an amount higher than the purchased price, they will adjust it down.
The use of one manufacturer and one store coupon on a purchase is allowed. Meijer considers Mealbox (currently on hold, no coupons available) and some mPerk (see more below) coupons store coupons. Watch your mPerks carefully, most are NOT store coupons any longer.
Catalina/OYNSO Coupons – These are national manufacturer coupons that are issued after a specific purchase threshold has been met. They are sometimes in the form of Buy #, Get $ – but many times in the form of Buy $$, Get $ as well. A great example is the “Buy $25 in Select General Mills Products, Get $5.00 Off Your Next Shopping Order”. These offers are typically “rollable” or able to be used to purchase the deal again and still receive the OYNSO offer again.
Double or Triple Coupons (see HERE) – vary by location. Per Meijer it is on occasion, but in West Michigan, Northern Indiana and Northern Illinois it hasn’t happened in years. East Michigan, Ohio and most other areas see double coupons every day currently. Most stores that do double coupons will do so with the stipulation that the face value of the coupon is $.50 or less and that they only double two identical coupons per transaction.
Price Adjustment Policy: (from HERE)
Meijer will refund the difference in price on you purchase if the item goes on sale via a weekly sale ad with in 10 days of your purchase. They will not honor the adjustment for Black Friday, special sale ads, limited quantities, mail in rebate offers or gift card promotions.
Meijer will match competitor ad pricing on all identical, in stock items in the General Merchandise categories. They include: “Men’s, Women’s, Children’s Clothing, Shoes, Toys, Small Appliances, Floral, Garden, Hardware, Housewares, Plumbing and Electrical, Furniture, Gifts and Lamps, Sporting Goods, and Stationery.”
Meijer will honor the competitor’s ad or coupon for an item if the price point is listed (ie: No % off, BOGO, clearance, etc.) and they have the identical item in stock.
The policy states to stop at the service desk to verify that your competitor catalina coupon will be accepted. They will only accept competitor catalinas for General Merchandise per their policy. UPDATED 4/19/12 – The policy now states that they accept competitor coupons for Grocery and HBA as well. YMMV. The store managers get to decide if they will accept competitor coupons. Check with your local store.
Meijer Store Coupons:
mPerks – Digital coupons that are linked to you cell phone number. Limit one time use per coupon. Limit one mPerk account per cell phone number. Limit one mPerk account per transaction. You need to sign up for and verify your account by receiving a text message and entering the code at the website. At that time, you can shut off text alerts and turn on email alerts to avoid future text messages. If you turn off both, it deactivates your account.
To select mPerk coupons, go to the website and log in. “Clip” the ones you want and they will be saved to your virtual coupon file. You can then print the list for reference or email it to yourself (as I do and I can simply pull it up on my phone in the store). To use mPerks, hit the mPerks button on the credit card pad in a cashier lane or on the screen in a self check lane. Enter your phone number, then your pin number as it instructs and it should then take off all the loaded coupons that match to items that have been scanned.
*Important mPerk note: Some mPerks coupons now state that they can not be combined with other coupons. Per Meijer’s coupon policy referenced above, they should still be allowed with a paper manufacturer coupon, but per the wording in mPerks it’s not allowed. I have heard reports that it works in store and that it does not. Your Results May Vary (YMMV).
Meijer Custom Coupons – Can also be found via the Meijer Mealbox widget. Click “Specials” then “Custom Coupons” to view them. (I also include them at the bottom of the weekly matchups.) These offers are typically in a Buy #, Get $ format. For these offers you must purchase the required number of items and you will receive a “Meijer Custom Coupon” for the dollar value promised. These coupons can not be “rolled” or used to purchase another Custom Coupon offer and still receive the offer again. Attempting it will result in not receiving the Custom Coupon offer on the second purchase. You may however use them to buy a national offer and still receive the national offer and you may use a national offer to purchase a Custom Coupon offer and still receive the custom coupon.
Method of Payment:
Meijer accepts most major credit cards, debit transactions, cash and check with proper identification. They also accept Food Assistance and WIC payments.
Meijer accepts General Merchandise returns with in 90 days of purchase. Electronics with in 30 days of purchase. Other damaged and defective products are eligible for exchange. Some other exclusions apply, see the policy as linked above.
Other Need to Knows:
Meijer (as many other retailers do as well) treat coupon acceptance as a form of payment, not a reduction in price) when calculating totals for offer thresholds. If the requirement is to purchase $25 of select items to get $5 OYNSO, you can put $25 worth of products in your cart, scan, total $25, use your coupons, pay under $25 an the $5 OYNSO will still print.
As always, some stores adjust policies as needed to combat issues they have had. If your store is not following the policies outlined in the links I’ve provided above, I urge you to contact Meijer corporate with your concerns.
