Price Chopper Grocery Store – Coupon Policy on Competitor Coupon Use! — 2 Comments

  1. Price Chopper needs to figure out what they want to do, and stick to it. I definitely appreciate that they streamlined their coupon policy so that it is consistent from store to store, which was enacted last year, but there have definitely been issues regarding competitor’s coupons. They must be VERY exact in what they will and will not accept. I believe that they SHOULD accept competitor’s dollar doublers, since they are technically a competitor’s coupon. If, for example, it comes in Stop and Shop’s flyer (much like Price Chopper’s doublers do), you should be able to use them without issue, just as you would any other competitor coupon. Too much picking and choosing about competitor’s coupons is muddying up how I shop. Consistency needs to be key.

    The reason Price Chopper is my store of choice is precisely for the perks of being able to use competitor’s coupons, and reduce the number of grocery trips I make. Were they to change this policy, I would seriously consider taking my business elsewhere. I would like to see them keep accepting competitor’s coupons, and be plain about what is not allowed (eg. BJ’s coupons). Remove all ambiguity.

  2. I had a SEVERE incident happen to me at the Route 50 store in Wilton recently. I spent over $15,000.00 there last year and am very respectful to the coupon policy and follow all the rules, however, was accused to my face by two managers that I was copying coupons and asked if I knew that was illegal right in front of a line of people! When I complained o corporate I got no response. When I went into the store, I was offered a $10.00 Gift Card for being called a liar. I left the store in tears! I presented the current coupon policy to the manager and that it was confusing and outdated and told “it will get looked at and changed to be more clear”. That was month’s ago. I love Price Chopper, however, they are getting harder and harder to deal with. I would even drive to Colonie (the nearest Shop Rite) to save more money than the cost of gas to drive there versus Wilton.
