MARTIN’S Coupon Match-ups and Deals for 5/2-5/8

logo_MARTINS

It is really taking me a little bit longer to weed through all of the deals that are listed in the twenty page weekly sales flyer for MARTIN’S.  I am also still working on figuring out the Catalina system at MARTIN’S.  I have done some research and I haven’t been able to find a comprehensive list that indicates what deals will print a Catalina and how long the promotion is good for.  I will share more information as I figure it out. 

I did want to point out two deals that are listed on the front cover of this week’s ad.  The first one is Buy one Get one Free Expressions from Hallmark card.  This can come in handy with Mother’s Day on Sunday.  The other item can also be used for Mother’s Day or just for yourself later on – it is $5 off $50 in participating gift cards.  I ran in the store quickly Monday morning and noticed that the only exclusion was for MARTIN’S store gift cards.  Remember $5 off $50 is 10% off and combined with a restaurant promo (like a Ruby Tuesday buy one entree get one free) you can enjoy an inexpensive date (or two).

These are the guidelines that I have read and figured out so far for MARTIN’S coupon policy:

  • MARTIN’S will double manufacturer coupons up to $0.50 everyday.

  • MARTIN’S will only double one “like” manufacturer coupon per customer per day.  (This means that even if you buy two bags of frozen veggies and have two coupons only one will double.)

  • MARTIN’S will “double” the difference of a coupon with a value of $0.51-$0.98 and $1 to give you up to $1 off.  (I had $0.55 coupons that “doubled” $0.45 giving me $1 off.)

  • MARTIN’S does accept internet printable coupons up to a face value of $5, they do not accept coupons for a “free” item.  This includes buy one get one free. 

  • You must buy both items to get the free item with buy one get one free promotions. (You can’t buy one item at “half price”.)

  • If you are buying 2 items with a buy one get one free promotion you can still use a coupon that covers both items.

    I am only posting the items that are in the sales flyer that have a coupon match-up.  Some are great deals, some are a good price if are out or running low on an item.

    With a twenty page ad I may have missed something.  If you found something that I missed please let me know.

    Could I please ask you (my readers) to help me out.  I purchase food items often for events at my church.  In the past Ukrop’s would give non-profit organizations an additional 10% off along with tax-exempt (you just had to have paperwork on file for tax-exempt).  I have an event this weekend and inquired if MARTIN’S was going to continue this.  I was told, “At this time we are re-evaluating our policy and not offering non-profit organizations the 10% discount.”  This really upset me.  I see this as another misstep MARTIN’S is making with the community.  If you also disagree with this policy could you please go to their website and click on contact us and let them know.  You will have the choice of doing this anonymously or leaving your contact info.  I would like to see this policy re-instated not just to help out my church, but other non-profit organizations.  Thanks in advance!

    Happy Shopping! ~Ann

    You might try contacting FL and Kroger to see what they might do to step up with Martin's change in policy about the non-profit discount. It's worth a couple of phone calls I would think.

    Thanks for the match-ups. I haen't been to Martin's yet, but will try them soon!

    Thanks for the idea Judi. Kroger picked up the slack with the Girl Scout issue and maybe they will do the same in this case.

    Thanks so much for all the hard work you put into the matchups each week. I hope they make a change to the policy.
