Due to Extreme Couponers Abusing the London Drugs Coupon Stacking: London Drugs has Released the Following Statements and has changed their Coupon Policy:
Due to unfortunate circumstances we are forced to announce a change to our approach of certain coupon stacking programs. This change will affect the pre-ordering of mass quantities of products and the use of mass cut coupons for all of our vendors for the purpose of coupon stacking. In addition, London Drugs has been advised by SC Johnson Company, that no SC Johnson coupon can be combined or stacked with any other coupon, regardless of the wording on the back of their coupons. Unfortunately, both of these areas are impacted due to increasing abuse which cannot be supported, and negatively affects all customers.
OMG – Listen to the next Paragraph – I am blown away – Pallets just for couponers – Hey I use coupons but would never dream of asking a store to order that much extra. And to find out Greedy People are Selling Items bought from London Drugs that they receive cheap or free with coupon stacking!
We have had increasing pressure from an ever widening number of coupon stackers to pre-order large quantities of products expressly for the purpose of coupon stacking. The requests are not modest: increasingly these order are for cases and half pallet or pallet quantities of merchandise. On top of this, it has been reported that increasingly these large quantities are used for resale, and not for personal consumption.
The following is also a sad decision that had to be made! But couponers continue to abuse a system, this is what things boil down to. I have a feeling more of these decisions will be made in the future:
London Drugs has been advised by SC Johnson Company, that no SC Johnson coupon can be combined or stacked with any other coupon, regardless of the wording on the back of their coupons. London Drugs attempted to work with the legal counsel representing SC Johnson to alter their wording on their coupons as many other companies have done. Unfortunately, they have made a unilateral decision that because the abuse of coupon stacking has become too widespread on their products, they will not continue to reimburse London Drugs for any coupon they deemed was stacked.
