stater brothersStater Brother’s does not have an official coupon policy that I can post. I have spent a lot of time on the phone with them and narrowed down their coupon policy rules.

  • They do accept printable coupons.
  • They do not accept printable coupons that are $2 and over.
  • They do not accept printable coupons that say the word “Free”.
  • Free product printable coupons will not be accepted.
  • Buy One Get One Free printable coupons will not be accepted.
  • They will allow a paper coupon with the electronic coupons they offer as long as it doesn’t violate the paper coupon. Example: paper coupon says “Not valid with any other offer”. I find this wording on printable coupon mostly.

Everyone’s Stater’s is different and the cashiers/managers don’t have much experience with coupons in my opinion. One of the most annoying problems I run into is when they don’t understand the coupon verbage. Example: I went to buy 60 vitamin waters because the price was fantastic, the manager made me do 30 different transactions because the coupon said “One coupon per purchase”, It didn’t state “One coupon per transaction”. This is not his fault, he wasn’t educated with the coupon lingo and his job was on the line.

If you have trouble, don’t get discouraged. I personally had several conversations with Anna at corporate and she said we shouldn’t have these problems. If you have a problem contact Anna at corporate or tell the manager to call corporate.

I was at staters by my home in Beaumont Ca and they now accept printed coupons that have a www. address on them :)

My Stater Bros in Fullerton, CA takes printed coupons, but only $2.00 per transaction. I wasn't aware of this, but the cashier informed me and let it "slide" this one time, so I went 1.05 over the limit.

I was in Stater Bros on 3/3 and they say they had a new coupon policy about Internet coupons, but the cashier and managers wasn't quite sure what it was. They did mention that all printed coupons had to have a bar code and UPC number. They were also very hesitant to take the California Dairy Coupon, but they did for me.

    It's funny how all the Stater employees are confused. I did have one cashier say they were only accepting $5 worth of printable coupons per transaction. I went to another cashier and had no problems. I guess I'll need to call corporate and get clarification. Thanks for the heads up! God Bless! Apryl

I went there today, in Lake Forest, CA. The Right Guard deodorant is BOGO free. I had 3 coupons for BOGO from the paper. The girl at the register went :s "These are already on sale". So she asked another girl (really, they were all like in HS) and came back to tell me no. "No, because, then... like, the store wouldn't make any money". :p No worries, matey, I left them. But I did ask for their coupon policy, if I could read it. Well, they looked and looked and couldn't find it, but assured me they have one and it's usually there/here/around. One of the girls said, I couldn't take those coupons because, you need to purchase 1... or 2. I said, I purchased 6. She says, Well, maybe buy...1 more??? Look, you can't really use those anywhere. So I explained that I've used those with such sales at CVS or Rite Aid, where the policy actually states that both items are free. She was in total disbelief. :p Hey, no worries. Although I'm curious now to know what the policy is for the BOGO coupons during BOGO sales or what they say about this situation.
