New limits for P&G coupons in Sunday insert

Posted June 30

Red Plum coupons insert

There is some new restrictive wording on the P&G coupons this week and it does not help those who like to stock up using coupons.

The coupons indicate "Limit of 2 identical coupons per household per day."

In the past, P&G limited coupons to 4 per day. As of this week, every coupon in the P&G insert I have in my hands has a limit of TWO identical coupons per household per day.

What do you think? Will it help keep stock on the shelves or just aggravate you as a couponer?

This Sunday, July 2, we will have 1 P&G coupon insert in the paper.

You can see a preview each week by Friday of many of the coupons we will get at We won't receive all the same coupons, but we will get many of the same ones.

If you buy the paper at a store on Sunday (instead of getting a subscription delivered to your home), make sure you look inside the paper before you buy it so you can see that the coupons are in there. You will find that sometimes, the papers at the stores and in the paper boxes do not have coupons. Sometimes the newspaper runs out of coupon inserts and because the home delivery papers are the first to get the coupons, the papers that go to the stores do not always have all the coupons.

And if you are looking for somewhere to donate your expired manufacturer coupons, our US troops overseas can use them at many on-base commissaries after they have expired. Find out where to send them at

Happy shopping everyone!

    Make sure the freebie haribo sour gold bears show up free on the receipt mine didnt come off and the CS thought only the haribo twin snakes was the only free product. On the p&g everyday website there is a discussion about the P&G doing away with the paper inserts.

    I don't mind...I am tired of the hoarders...I had two rainchecks for Gain and one for Tide where the shelves would be wiped clean every time there would be coupons that matched up during SD's, and I was never able to use them before HT changed their policy.

    cintlyarias - there are no Tide coupons in the P&G insert I have. It came from the Durham area. Once again, the insert shows the Tide and Gain and directs consumers to go to to print them. Sorry.

    pandafv - I can definitely see your point. I think that has been going on for some time now.

    Were you able to receive the Tide coupons in your P&G insert?

    The limits don't bother me. I'm frankly tired of seeing people make a business out of reselling grocery items. I wouldn't be surprised if Harris Teeter and other stores that double coupons haven't seen it too. It could ruin it for everyone.
