Print today. Use by tomorrow??
Last summer, Proctor & Gamble changed the restrictions on P&G insert coupons to a limit of two identical coupons per transaction and household per day. And, now it appears that they’re making it harder to redeem Tide, Dreft, and Gain printable coupons on the P&G Everyday site. 😩
Now, select P&G printable coupons have an expiration of the following day after printing, which means if you print a popular Tide, Dreft or Gain coupon today, you’ll have until tomorrow to make use of it.
Plus, many of these printable coupons have a limit of ONE per household per day, and you can only print six P&G coupons per month. It doesn’t seem like P&G really wants us to use these coupons?? 🤨
Well, there may be a little glimmer of hope.
If you’re still hoping to redeem these high-value P&G coupons, one of the best ways to use them is to add P&G brandSAVER digital coupons to your store loyalty cards as they’re valid for several weeks. Just load them to your shopper card and then use your store card at checkout for instant savings.
To get started, just head on over here, click on ‘Digital brandSAVER Coupons’ at the top, and browse through the coupons. Add any coupons you want, and the savings will instantly come off at checkout. Note that for this month’s digital coupons, they’re valid 7/1-7/28 at participating stores.
Oh P&G, can you please honor coupons like…
On the other hand, companies like Unilever haven’t made changes to their printable coupons for popular items like Dove, Degree, TRESemmé, Breyers, and Ben & Jerry’s – just to name a few. These coupons still have a limit of two identical coupons per shopping trip, and the expiration dates from the coupons we printed were 10 days to 8 weeks after the day it was printed, depending on the coupon.
So where can you find other coupons that won’t expire tomorrow?
- Sunday newspaper – In Sunday newspapers, you’ll often find coupon inserts: RetailMeNot (formerly known as Red Plum) inserts (RMN), SmartSource inserts (SS), Proctor & Gamble inserts (PG), and occasionally bonus inserts depending on your area of the country (Parade Magazine, USA Weekly, General Mills, Target, etc).
- Internet/Printable coupons – There are TONS of printable coupons available online! Not only can you often find coupons for your favorite brands on their websites and/or Facebook pages, you can also find loads of printable coupons on various sites. Here are my favorite coupon sites: Coupons.com, Grocery Coupon Network, Hopster, Red Plum, SmartSource, and Target.
- Coupon mailers from unsolicited companies or from a manufacturer – To get these, be sure to sign up for your favorite brand’s newsletter and/or rewards program (if they have one). You can also contact companies that you love and see if they’d be willing to send you coupons!
- In magazines – Lots of magazines often have hidden coupons inside. You can often find coupons in Weight Watchers, Family Circle, Redbook, Good Housekeeping, Parents, and more!
- Inside products or on the box of a product – Often you’ll find surprise coupons inside a product package or on the actual packaging, so be sure to always look.
- Loaded to your store loyalty card or app – Many stores (such as Dollar General) now offer eCoupons that you can save to your store/rewards card. Plus, P&G Everyday also has digital coupons. And there are many apps that offer savings as well that you can actually stack with manufacturer’s coupons: Ibotta, Checkout51, SavingStar, and Target Cartwheel.
