official whole foods coupon policyHere’s some great news for Whole Foods fans – they released an official Whole Foods coupon policy that applies to all stores!

In the past, Whole Foods’ policies could vary on things like stacking store coupons with manufacturer’s coupon, so I’m happy to see it all organized in one place. One change that I’m not a huge fan of is only using one coupon on B1G1 deals, but I guess you can’t win ’em all. Here are the details:

Official Whole Foods Coupon Policy

-A store coupon and a manufacturer coupon can be combined on one item.

-When the value of the coupon exceeds the value of the product no cash back is given.

-Coupons are never doubled or tripled.

-All types of coupons are accepted with the exception of those that are obviously photocopied.

-Competitor coupons are not accepted with the exception of Michigan stores in Midwest.

-Case discounts can be combined with coupons.

-Multiple Whole Deal coupons for the same item in one transaction can be used as long as there is an individual coupon for each item purchased.

-If there is a BOGO FREE promo, one coupon can be used for the full price item.

-All regions will allow Whole Deal coupons to be combined with manufacturer’s coupons.

-Team Member discounts may be used in conjunction with all Whole Deal coupons.

-Regions will override printed guidelines when necessary for customer/guest satisfaction.

I bolded the main changes to take note of. If you want to see the link on their page you can find the policy here.

      But I thought Florida was a true BOGO state — meaning that you can use a coupon on the “Get One” item. How can a particular store override that?

      How do you get the store coupons?

      • RachelMac

        they have a flyer in the store, or you can download and print them at WholeFoods.com

        remember you only have to use ONE store coupon and it covers as many of that item that you want to purchase.

        Last weekend, all cases of their waters were on sale 40% off. Whole foods also had a $3 off Q for SmartWater cases. So it basically dropped the price of a case of smartwater in HALF!! great deal. :o)

      Yeah, I love Whole Foods, but wasn’t happen with their coupon policy until now!! Greenville, SC wouldn’t allow stacking before, so I’m glad that’s changed. They never have a lot of BOGO, so I am fine with that. Thank you Jenny!!

      • RachelMac

        I’ve stacked a manufacturer Q and a store Q dozens of times at the Greenville, SC whole foods store!! Did you try to do it on more than one shopping trip? I’ve been stacking Qs there for YEARS!!
        Always try again if that happens at ANY store. sometimes people are just new or don’t know their store’s policies well.

        Happy Shopping, Girl!! Today, wild caught shrimp are on sale for $4.99/lb. GREAT DEAL!!

      Now if they would just find a better way to enter in manufacturers coupons… At my store (and maybe it isn’t like this everywhere), they have to hand enter them and specify which department they came from (produce, dairy, meat, etc.), which takes FOREVER.

      • RachelMac

        I think it just helps them be sure their check out folks are paying attention to the dates, etc. on the Qs. So Whole Foods doesn’t get ripped off.

        They truly have GREAT deals from time to time. Just have to keep watching SouthernSavers for them to be posted!!
