One of the big FAQs around here, is where can I redeem a free item coupon? Here is a list of local stores that accept free item coupons and those that don’t as well as the part of each store coupon policy that addresses free product coupon redemption! It’s important to know your store policies because sometime the employees do not and will give you misinformation!
Note that locally most stores will not accept free item printable coupons – That’s why we don’t post them.
Do Not Accept Free Product Coupons:
Dollar Tree – “We are unable to accept coupons for “Free” items with no purchase requirements or where the amount for the product is blank.” (Dollar Tree Coupon Policy)
Family Dollar- “Coupons for free items are only accepted if a purchase is required to get one free” (Family Dollar Coupon Policy)
Dollar General– “Coupons for free items are only accepted if a purchase is required to get one free” (Dollar General Coupon Policy)
Do Accept Free Product Coupons:
AAFES Exchange -“Will accept “free item” manufacturer’s original coupon.” “We do not accept Internet coupons for free items with no purchase requirements.” (AAFES Coupon Policy)
H-E-B – “‘Free product’ printable coupons are not accepted (i.e. Get X Free)” (H-E-B Coupon Policy)
Kmart – Does accept Free product coupons, but not printable. (Has no official coupon policy -Every version I have seen posted online is inaccurate or outdated.)
Target – “We do not accept internet coupons for free items with no purchase requirements.”(Target Coupon Policy)
Walgreens – “Walgreens accepts valid internet/print at home coupons with a clear and scannable barcode.” (No exclusion of free item printable coupons, however the policy also states that “Any coupon offer not covered in these guidelines will be accepted at the discretion of Walgreens management.”) (Walgreens Coupon Policy)
Walmart – “We gladly accept the following types of coupons… Manufacturers’ coupons: For free items (except those printed off the Internet)”(Walmart Coupon Policy)
If you keep store policies in your coupon binder or coupon box – I highly recommend highlighting this part of each store policy so when it comes up at the register you have a quick reference!
