Couponing for the Rest of Us

Bi-Lo Coupon Policy Changes: Competitor Coupons Allowed Everywhere!

Well it’s about time! Although my local Bi-Lo has accepted competitor coupons for some time now – neighboring cities & states haven’t been so lucky.  That’s all changing now!  Our friend Caryn at corporate emailed us yesterday with the *NEW* OFFICIAL Bi-Lo Coupon Policy – you can read/print it out here, but here are the main points summarized:

The Biggies:

  • Bi-Lo will accept local competitor coupons
    - Competitor and store coupons can be stacked with a manufacturer coupon
    - Competitor Coupon Must be for the exact same item
    - No $/$$ coupons (Like $5 off $20)
    - Local competitors may vary by store
  • Electronic Coupons will begin shortly
    - SavingStar already works for Bi-Lo, and will likely be announced on the site shortly

More Updates/Clarifications:

  • Coupons & BonusCard must be presented at BEGINNING of checkout
  • Coupons double up to $.60 – but only up to the price of the item.   No overage!
  • Coupons that say “Do Not Double” will NOT be doubled.
    These are known in coupon lingo as “DND” coupons – and we’ll start trying to label them as such in our matchups, if we know they are “DND’s”
  • Limit of 10 “like” coupons will double per transaction
    Example:  Buy (11) Vlasic Pickles, use (11) $.55 coupons – only 10 will double, and the 11th will stay $.55.  You can still buy other things and those coupons will double just fine, but only 10 of the “Same” coupon will double per transaction.  (this was already a rule, but it’s not widely known)

  1. Niečo by som mohol napísať… je tam viacej možností
    čo robiť a to je hrať hry, pozerať video a nachádzajú sa tam celkm v pohode seriály.
    Hlavne tie moje najoblúbenejšie a rpeto tam tak rád chodím.

  2. my bi lo only accepts competitors coupons if there is an address they can redeem them at to get the money back.

  3. On my last trip to Bi-Lo, I didn’t know this about my store: They will accept only (3) competitor coupons per transaction. So buyer be aware about this at your store.
    I had matched up a lot of comps and manufacture coupons and I didn’t save as much as I wanted to, but I’m still learning about coupons and Bi-LO is still my favorite store.
    I’m very pleased to say, “I paid only 2.26 per gallon of gas! ” up to 20 gallons and I filled my tank up.
    Thanks so much for all of the information on your site. It has helped me a lot.

  4. when an item says buy one get one free do you pick up 2 and only get charged for 1 or they charge you for both?

    • When an item is BOGO at Bi-Lo – it really just means that each item is 1/2 price! You can get one or 3 or 11 – and it will only be 1/2 price per item.

      • When you have a B1G1 free coupon for a product, are you able to stack another manufacture coupon for say $3/2 to get the items even cheaper?

        • No Kristen – If it were a BOGO sale – then you TOTALLY could – because the store is the one giving you the BOGO savings, and the manufacturer is the one giving you the coupon savings. Each one is only getting hit one time. But the BOGO Coupon is a manufacturer discount, and that $3/2 coupon would get kicked out because you can’t use 2 manufacturer coupons on one item. I hope that helps!

  5. i have read some information on the ew program and the program is going to be very very good from the info i got to read i am excited about the new program coming in aug and the process to get a new card will be very simple i think all you will have to do is give them your old car they will scan it and link it to your new card

    Not long ago, you could get an updated Bonus Card on Bi-Lo’s website that is set for Fuel Perks so that if/when they start that here in the Chattanooga area, we’ll start earning those. I wonder if that is the card change they were talking about? I think it is just a way to update everyone. When we got ours, it was linked to my old card so I didn’t lose any of my info as far as purchases were concerned and I can still long in on their website and see that card. Love Bi-Lo and this change will be nice.

  7. I went to Bi-li today and they told me come August 1 they are rolling out a new bonus card program. You will have to get a new card and everything. When companies change things like this it usually it not in our favor.

    I also heard tha Target is considering not accepting coupons. Is there any truth to that? So much fraud is causing companies to drastically change their polices. It is really sad for honest coupners who are trying to save their families money.
