This this the Jewel-Osco Coupon Policy as posted by Jewel-Osco. You can print a copy of the official policy HERE
Jewel-Osco is committed to providing our customers with a satisfying shopping experience that includes fast, friendly checkout. The acceptance of various types of coupons is pivotal to creating value for shoppers and sustaining market share in a highly competitive retail environment.
Legitimate coupons are easily reimbursed to the company and they allow us to pass substantial savings on to customers. Coupons that are fraudulent, or otherwise unredeemable, can be costly to the business. The following policy is written with the intention of making coupon acceptance simple and consistent for both customers and cashiers, while avoiding situations which may indicate fraud or a potential loss to the business.
Definitions and Restrictions
- Manufacturer Coupons – Coupons issued by the manufacturer or vendor that are reimbursable to the merchant. The coupon verbiage contains terms of agreement, redemption instructions, a face value, an expiration date, and the words “manufacturer coupon.” Most manufacturer coupons have barcodes which can be scanned. Any manufacturer coupons which do not scan or do not have barcodes should be closely checked for validity, including the expiration date and purchase requirements. All manufacturer coupons are considered a tender.
- Store Coupons – These contain the verbiage “redeemable only at Jewel Osco.” They are issued directly by Jewel-Osco and may be distributed electronically or via newspaper, ad inserts, direct mailer, or by other means. Store coupons typically have a barcode and will scan but they DO NOT contain redemption instructions. Unlike manufacturer coupons, store coupons are a reduction of sales, not a tender. They should not be sent into the coupon clearinghouse for redemption.
- Catalina Coupons – Catalina is a third party vendor who partners with Jewel-Osco and product manufacturers to deliver manufacturer and store coupons to consumers based on purchases. Catalina coupons are printed directly at the lane and may only be used for a future purchase. They CANNOT be used for the order from which they were generated. Catalina coupons are intended for use only by the customer who receives them and not for other customers or associates. Unclaimed or unwanted Catalina coupons are to be destroyed immediately.
- Internet Coupons – Coupons printed directly from an internet website and presented for redemption with a qualifying purchase. They can be either a manufacturer or store coupon. Check internet coupons closely, as they can often be fraudulent. A manufacturer coupon must have standard redemption information listed in the ‘manufacturer coupon’ section above.
The following conditions apply:
- DO NOT accept internet coupons for free product offers which do not require a qualifying purchase (“Buy one get one free” is allowable)
- DO NOT accept internet coupons with redemption value greater than FIVE ($5)
- DO NOT accept internet coupons that lack a barcode
- DO NOT accept photocopied internet coupons
- DO NOT accept blurry or distorted coupons
General Acceptance Guidelines

- Cents off Coupons – will be accepted for the full face value on a “cents off” coupon provided the customer has other purchases against which to credit the additional amount. Coupon deductions may not exceed the total amount of purchase – no cash back may be given.

- Free/Max Value Manufacturer Coupons – The Item Price cannot be exceeded when crediting a Free/Max Value coupon.
- ILLINOIS STORES ONLY: Customers are NOT required to pay taxes on ‘Unconditional ‘ Free Manufacturer Coupons. Ring as a separate Tax Exempt order to relieve the taxes once manufacturer coupon has been scanned.
- For Manufacturer Coupons that do not specify a specific discount, such as “Buy one get one free,” or “Free up to XXX” the applied discount must be legibly written on the coupon by the cashier

- Consumers pay sales tax on the full price of an item when redeeming a manufacturer coupon. EXCEPTION: Unless unconditional free in the State of Illinois.
