Extreme Couponing causing Extreme Changes!

Tonight I thought it would be a good idea to address the article that came out on Yahoo! Finance today. Click HERE to read the article.
Many Fans are upset after reading this article, but I wanted to clear up any confusion you may have.
Although many stores have changed their Coupon Policies due to the new Extreme Couponing Craze, it is still possible to Save Money with your Coupons!
Here are some details about the Changes:
Target’s Current Coupon Policy can be found HERE – There is some confusion on information from the Yahoo! Article… The Article states “Target now forbids ‘stacking’ the act of combining manufacturer and store buy-one-get-one-free coupons, in order to receive both items for free.
**Darlin’ Deals Says: This only applies to the Coupons that I have highlighted in Bold (Stacking BOGO Coupons) Customers are still allowed to Stack Target Store Coupons + Manufacturer Coupons. The Policy only prohibits stacking a Buy 1 Get 1 Free Target Coupon with a Buy 1 Get 1 Free Manufacturer Coupon which would make both Products Free.
Rite Aid’s Current Coupon Policy can be found HERE – with the additional change of “Shoppers can no longer combine buy-one-get-one-free coupons or promotions — a strategy that, in the past, allowed customers to get two free items. The chain is also limiting the number of coupons a shopper can use per item to four, as long as there is enough stock. Before, the store accepted multiple identical coupons for multiple qualifying items.”
** Darlin’ Deals Says: This is in my opinion the most devastating Coupon Policy Change that has come about after the start of Extreme Couponing. I have heard from multiple Fans & Friends that Rite Aid has repeatedly mentioned their concern over Shelf Clearning & Coupon Abuse.
WalMart’s Current Coupon Policy can be found HERE –
** Darlin’ Deals Says: There have actually been improvements made to Walmart’s Policy just recently! The Policy now clearly allows Overage by stating, “Coupons MAY EXCEED THE PRICE OF THE ITEM. Change may be given or applied towards the cost of the basket purchase” However there have been changes in Walmart’s Cash Registers. The Registers now prompt the Cashiers to ‘Approve’ any Coupon Dollar Amounts that will result in Overage. This is time consuming and frustrating especially when the Cashier begins to question a completley legitamate Coupon based on the Register asking for permission to approve.
