No More Coupon Stacking at Save on Foods / Overwaitea



The Overwaitea group have updated their coupon policy and stacking is no longer permitted with the exception of stacking a store coupon with a manufacturer coupon.  This policy is effective November 1st, but some of our forum members have already been told stacking is over in their store.

I have always envied the ability to stack that our Western Canada members enjoy, it is a pity to see it go when people have been getting great deals.  Will it change how often you shop at stores in the Overwaitea group?

Here is the new policy:

Our coupon acceptance practices are designed to help extend more savings to our customers while ensuring we continue to offer an exceptional customer service experience to everyone in our stores.

Rules for manufacturer issued coupons:

  • present your coupon at the time of purchase
  • ensure all conditions stated on the coupon are met (product to purchase, size, flavour, quantity, etc.)
  • ensure your coupon has a Canadian address
  • ensure your coupon is redeemed prior to the expiration date
  • if printed from the internet, your coupon is legible
  • ensure your coupon is not a photocopy
  • ensure your coupon is not issued by one of our competitors
  • ensure your coupon is not a mail-in rebate
  • Stacking is NOT permitted

Store issued coupons: store coupons are distributed through flyers, email, in-store kiosks, social media and direct mail.

  • Our store system reinforces the conditions of every coupon we receive to ensure that specifications are met (including banner, date,
  • product specifications, limits, combinations, etc).
  • Can be combined with 1 (one) vendor (manufacturer) coupons

We reserve the right to amend the above mentioned practices at any time, in consideration of the best experience for our customers.  Nov 1, 2013

    It was only a matter of time. People getting excessive amounts have once again ruined it for everyone.

    I have to agree with Leanne.

    I love a savings as much as the next person, but coupon stacking needs to be outlawed everywhere. My sister in law looks out for sales, stacks coupons and price matches, she usually ends up leaving walmart with Walmart owing her money. It’s not right. It ends up costing the stores and then they pass that along to the consumer by having to increase their prices. There needs to be a limit.

    I agree people abuse it and wreck it for everyone else. Especially the rude onces that get mad at the cashiers. Walmart does not lose money when people leave with money in their pocket, walmart gets reimbursed for the coupons from the manufacturer.
