Target Updates Coupon Policy To Limit BOGO Stacking

One of the hardest things about being a dedicated couponer is keeping up to date on each of the store’s ever-changing coupon policies. Target has just posted a new update to its coupon policy to limit how BOGO (Buy One Get One) coupons can be stacked. (Stacking is when you combine in-store coupons with manufacturer’s coupons to beef up your discounts). Here’s the rule change:

BOGO coupons cannot be combined (i.e. you cannot use two BOGO coupons on two items and get both for free). Unless stated otherwise on the coupon, the use of one Buy One Get One Free coupon requires that two of the valid items are presented at checkout of which one item will be charged to the guest and the 2nd item will be discounted by its full retail price.

A second cents-off coupon of the same type cannot be redeemed towards the purchase price of the first item.
* If a Target BOGO coupon is used, one additional manufacturer coupon maybe used on the first item.
* If a Manufacturer BOGO coupon is used, one additional Target coupon may be used on the first item.

Seems pretty reasonable. Does this rule change alter your coupon strategy for Target?
