Food City Coupon Policy

Here is Food City’s coupon policy, which I have never looked at before.

Their coupon guidelines are in the form of a picture, so I can not copy the text. *grumble* It is linked above. Mainly coupons can not exceed price of item. Mostly your standard policies.

One experience I have had a Food City recently is trying to do a buy one get one free coupon with a buy one get one free sale. Food City apparently makes the item half price, rather than making one full price and one free. This is fine, except when you are trying to combine a buy one get one free sale and a buy one get one free coupon. Say the sale is for a $3 item and is on bogo and you have a bogo coupon. The register will ring up each item $1.50, ie half off, so in the end, you will get 2 items for $1.50 rather than 2 free.
