They take competitor Catalinas? I just threw out Target ones because I wouldn’t be back there to use them.

I had a situation where I was at Ralphs a few months back and I had a printed b1g1 free soy sauce coupon and they wouldn’t take it because they don’t “free” coupons. So I’m assuming the part in the policy where is states that “Coupons cannot be used on “free” items” is what the cashier is referring to? However I’m confused because I’m not getting it all for free, I’m paying for one and getting the other free. Can someone tell me if the cashier was correct and I wrong?

Thank you!

Hi Angie! Ralphs will take a buy one, get one free coupon. The “Free” coupons refer to printable coupons from the internet where no additional purchase is required :) You were in the right on this one!

I was just at a local Ralphs and had the same thing happen as Angie. They told me they can’t take B1G1 coupons printed off the internet.

Tonight I just used a free coupon and they did take it! They should have taken your coupon and go it for free!
