Shop ‘n Save Coupon Policy


This is a great read on Shop ‘n Save’s coupon policy written by Erin at 1FaithfulSteward:

1. I discovered there are two distinct stores named “Shop ‘n Save.” One chain is located in Missouri and the other is located in Western Pennsylvania, Eastern Ohio, and West Virginia. The chain located in Western Pennsylvania, Eastern Ohio, and West Virginia is the one that I am looking into.
2. Each Shop ‘n Save is independently owned and operated. (So, each one can set their own coupon policies.  : )  This could be good or bad, depending on your store’s management.) The Cranberry Twp. store (the one near me that just opened located at the intersection of Freedom Road and Haine School Road) is owned by Jim and Jeff Sorbara. They also own and operate five other Pittsburgh area stores including Bethel Park, Kennedy Township, Heidelberg, Wilkins Township and South Fayette.

3. Naturally, I called the Cranberry Twp. store (I’m guessing that most of the Shop ‘n Save’s have the same general coupon policy?) to figure out their specific coupon policy. Below is what I found out.

a. They accept competitor’s coupons. Competitors include Giant Eagle, Foodland, Khuns,
and other grocery stores. This includes Catalina coupons. Whether or not they
will be accepting drugstore coupons (Rite Aid and Walgreens) is yet to be determined.
b. Manufacturer’s coupons are doubled up to $0.99. (Store coupons, competitor’s
coupons, and “do not double” (DND) coupons are not doubled.) That means that a $0.75
coupon would double to $1.50.


  1. I called my local shop n save in pa. They double up to .99 and from what customer service told me they do not limit like coupons or limit doubles on like coupons.

      I just had a horrific experience at the Shop n Save in Cranberry. I read coupon policies and 4-5 times used rain checks to get items. One was Bayer aspirin that was on sale for $2.49 that we had $2.00 coupons. We got 15 of them on rain checks for $0.49 a piece. So we figured we were right on with the policy. Yesterday I went in with my Chi-chi’s raincheck for 16 tortillas. The sale price was to be 2/$3.00 and I had $0.50 coupons each so for 2 I would pay $1.00. Abruptly the cashier called the front end who 5+ minutes later had a suit (manager named John?) come out and inform me I was not permitted to use 16 coupons. I explained that their coupon policy did not limit. He stated he could not allow me to use more than ‘4 or 5’. He didn’t even have an EXACT #. I ask you, if you have no written coupon policy legally what ground do we have to stand on? I adhere strictly to the policies and try my best to be courdial but this experience has left me prepping to write to the owner to complain that they need a policy online in writing (other than the one they have for internet coupons.) I refuse to go back and patronize an establishment that makes rules up as they go along and can fluctuate. I am disgusted.

      • Oh, Angela…I’m so very sorry. I just finally tracked down a written coupon policy for Kuhn’s. Now I need to do the same for Shop ‘n Save. You’re absolutely right: you can’t make up a coupon policy as you go…they NEED to have it in writing, and up on their website! I am so sorry. Don’t let this discourage you from couponing…maybe you just need to shop somewhere else for a while until they can get their act together! I’m so glad you left a comment. I will also be writing (or calling) to encourage them to publish their coupon policy ASAP.

  2. Heads up everyone…the Shop N Save in Gibsonia is limiting purchases to 5 like coupons and this is new from what I can tell. I’m not sure if they are posting it in their policy, but they sure have fliers posted at every cash register. I got caught up in this last week when I went in and am mad enough to only use them now for the limited deals I can get and plan to shop elsewhere for my other items.

    • Thanks for the comment, Tracy. I’m so sorry to hear this. I know Giant Eagle will still accept 12 coupons for 12 identical items.

  3. anyone try the sushi at Cranberry shop ‘n save? how it is, give me a rating 1 to 10?

    I shop or have shopped I should say at the Shop ‘n Save on Rt 8 in Glenshaw . A few months back they had Colgate toothpaste on sale for $1.00 each . I had 50 cent off coupons which the sign in the window ( in large print states that they double up to 99 cents ) I was informed that they will not double to allow customers to get free products . They also allow you to use only 2 coupons per transaction . I have since stopped going there !

    I was told at the Shop ‘n Save on Rt 8 in Glenshaw that they will not double coupons to allow customers to recieve free products !! ( They had Colgate toothpaste on sale for $ 1.00 . I had 50 cent off coupons . ) They also only allow coupons for 2 like items per transactions .

    I wrote to the company … told them that coupon doubling was meant to encourage customers to shop at their stores not discourage them ! Never heard from them !!!

    • Wow…that’s really crazy! This is the first I’ve heard of a SNS not doubling coupons and setting such a small limit. I’m very sorry to hear this…hopefully they’ll adjust this policy in time.
