As of 1/29/13 HEB no longer allows coupon "stacking". You can only use 1 coupon per product period either a store coupon OR a manufacturer's coupon, not both.
If you are new to shopping with coupons at HEB, it
can be a bit overwhelming at first. How
are you supposed to make sense of all those little yellow coupons hanging all
over the store and can you use other coupons with them? I hope to answer these questions and clear
things up a bit for you.
This coupon has M in the lower left corner and is for a specific size and quantity of HEB Pure Cane Sugar Soda. In the following example you will see that this is a M coupon that is good on a variety of Brands and Sizes so read carefully. With both of these coupons you cannot use any other coupons with them.
This policy has not changed. In the following example you see a manufacturer’s coupon that says if you buy Hellmann’s Mayo you will get HEB croutons free. The yellow coupon will attach to the HEB croutons so if you have a coupon for the Hellmann’s Mayo you can use it also.
The new coupon policy NOW DOES allow the use of a MQ on the product you are paying for which is a nice change!
In the case of “Buy (1) Product X get 2nd
Product X free” otherwise known as BOGO, coupons it’s definitely a “your
mileage may vary” situation as to whether or not you can use a manufacturer’s
coupon for the first product. Many times
the yellow coupon actually attaches to both products. I do know some stores that do allow that and
some that do not so try it at your own risk. If there is a magic way to figure it out, I haven't found that magic yet!
There will always be unique circumstances that arise that I may not have covered here but hopefully this will help you decipher the basics of the mysterious HEB yellow coupons!
