1. A retailer’s acceptance and redemption of Manufacturers coupons constitute a binding agreement to honor each Manufacturers Coupon Redemption Policy.
  2. By submitting Coupons for reimbursement, you are representing that consumers in retail transactions presented the Coupons to you and that you, the retailer, reduced your selling price by the corresponding amounts stated on the coupons.
  3. Coupons are redeemable only when consumers have presented them to the retailer in retail transactions for the specified brands, products, flavors, sizes or quantities as stipulated in the coupons.
  4. Coupons are void and not redeemable under any of the following conditions:
    1. Where restricted, taxed or prohibited by law.
    2. When reproduced, photocopied, altered, mass cut from their original printed page, or transferred from, sold, re-sold or auctioned by their original recipient to any other person, firm or group.
    3. When presented by consumers who are purchasing the products for the purpose of resale.
    4. When accepted by the retailer beyond the applicable coupon expiration date.
    5. When used in a swap box, taped to product, or otherwise made available to consumers outside their intended means of distribution.
  5. Manufacturers also reserve the right to deny or refuse reimbursement and declare void any coupons presented for redemption that either:
    1. Bear no evidence of consumer handling (e.g. mint condition, mass cutting, etc.)
    2. Are not supported by proof of purchase and/or point of sale report upon request.
    3. Are submitted by a retailer whose address or business operation cannot be verified.
    4. Are redeemed outside of the authorized distribution area for such coupon.
    5. Have not been redeemed in accordance with their Coupon Redemption Policy.

Lastly, Manufacturer coupons are not to be used as a “cash tool”. The Manufacturer has issued them as a “savings” for the customer/consumer. In other words: Coupons may not be used as a settlement tool for trade-related activities, i.e.: redeeming coupons in lieu of payment for damaged or expired product, as a price reduction for the Retailer, as a sales incentives to purchase product, loading or unloading discontinued product. If a retailer violates any terms of the Manufacturers Coupon Redemption Policy, they may refuse payment on all of retailer’s coupon submissions and retain said coupons as their property, and also revoke their privilege to accept and submit their coupons. Further, they also reserve the right to forward such coupons and/or submissions to law enforcement agencies for fraud investigation.
