There’s an important update to King Soopers’ e-coupon program: they have officially stated that you cannot use a digital and paper coupon on the same time. Their FAQ now says this:
Can I use paper coupons as well as digital coupons on the same item?
Limit of one coupon per item. Digital coupons and paper coupons may not be combined on the purchase of a single item.
Audrey let me know that she received a warning about digital and paper coupon “stacking” when she loaded coupons to her Sooper card, and is wondering if this will cause any problems when checking out. What if you had a paper coupon and an e-coupon for a single item and didn’t realize it?!
I don’t think I would worry about it too much, but of course, do comply with the rules. :) While looking for the above information, I did find out that at least with King Soopers’ own e-coupons, you can now remove them from your card, which goes a long way towards allowing the consumer to prevent e-coupon stacking.
Previously, and with several other e-coupon sites like Cellfire and Shortcuts, you were unable to remove any digital coupons from you card, which mean you were “stuck” using an e-coupon when you wanted to use a paper coupon, or had to “illegally” stack them because it wouldn’t allow you to not use the e-coupon.
So, in some ways it’s good news to have an official rule about e-coupon and paper coupon stacking at King Soopers!
