Do Products Need to Match the Coupons Picture?


The first time I had a cashier tell me my product needed to match my coupon was with the coupon above. She insisted I had to buy the blue bottle of odor neutralizer.. nothing could persuade her otherwise!


In truth, the product needs to match the coupons description, not the picture. You need to read the coupon, including fine print and make sure you are purchasing exactly what the coupon states. Many manufacturers produce so many products in so many sizes, colors, scents and flavors there is no way to include all those products on a coupon. If your cashier refuses to accept the coupon, request a manager. If the manager also refuses, ask for them to call corporate while you are there. The stores need to correctly apply the coupons based on the language, not the image! Obviously, there are times the coupons image will match the wording – but not always. Make sure to read your coupons and use them correctly!

    Someone I saw used a $2/2 gain detergents coupon on a Gain liquid dish soap but they say it’s okay and the store accepted it because it didn’t say laundry soap though laundry items are clearly indicated at the items the coupon is for. As well as gain dish soap also having it’s own coupons, what are your thoughts on this? I feel like people are constantly trying to find loop holes to take advantage of any coupon wording.

      I would have to see the coupon to really know for sure, JD! Sometimes brands say $2/2 Gain products which could be used for anything even if the pictures didn’t show ALL their products. But sometimes they say $2/2 Gain Laundry Detergents, in which case they would need to be used only on the detergents. It’s important to read the information on the coupon since companies can’t fit all the product pictures on a tiny coupon. I hope that helps! 🙂 Thanks for stopping by!
