We collect them and usually get more before we use the first ones because they come so often. So the expiration has never been to much of an issue, but still good to know.

this may vary by state. Some states have different regulations on when coupons - and gift cards - expire. There are also varying laws on whether a "dormancy fee" can be applied to gift cards. Check your state law before discarding any older gift cards.

I have enough of those coupons to wallpaper a small room. If I ever pay full price for anything at BBB, I feel like I was ripped off.

Maybe that cashier accepted it but other cashiers may not. Even if the barcode scans, all it takes is someone to look at the date and they may not even attempt to scan it. I am always reading about stuff like this but when I try it, it never seems to work.

Not only do they ignore the expiration date, you can use multiple coupons at one time. They used to take an unlimited number, but after their main competition, Linens and Things, closed up most BBBs have instituted a five-coupon limit per transaction. Which of course is no big deal since you can buy five items, go put them in the car and go back to buy five more.

@elforman: I knew the coupons never expire but how do you use more than 1 coupon per transaction? I bought less than $25 worth of stuff last week (3 items) and used a $5 off $15 coupon. Are you saying they would have taken 20% off coupons too? Thanks!

@missellienc: You can use one coupon per item and in my experience, the cashiers will check to see what combo of 20% off coupons and $5 off $15 coupons give you the best deal.

I can confirm as well that the BBB coupons don't expire based on the testimony of one of my family members who uses the expired coupons at the store with no problems.

I think it's YMMV, at a BBB in NYC they definitely reject the ones that have expired. Drives me nuts.

It used to be that way here in Utah. Then they made a big push that starting on a certain date they would no longer accept expired coupons. That was about a year ago I think.

The ones in Jersey used to take Linens N Things coupons, too.

Yup, confirmed in CA.

Left an expired coupon in the car once, asked cashier in hopes that she had one at the register I could use, and she told me to go get the one out of my car. Doesn't expire.

Woop!

Ours doesn't let you, they are very strict. I'm in Idaho. But we get one at least once a month, so we just wait.

I haven't had any problems using expired coupons or multiple coupons in a single transaction (one coupon per item...coupons were all x$ or x% off one item). Not certain how it works with the more recent coupons I've gotten that are x% off until a certain date and then y% (less than x%) after that. I would assume it would be y% off.

vote-for2vote-against

same here at my local BBB. I have a car full of them. I go in with a handfull and the cashiers tell me how many of which I can use to get the best deal. If your store won't take them, you can always send them to me! XD

They're Beyond the concept of time.

Yes, I did know that. I discovered this when buying a ring holder that I didn't need. I handed the coupon to the cashier only to realize later that it was actually expired. But I still got my 20% off, and very happily, too.

I am curious, though: Has anyone seen anything other than 20% off?

Neither do Kohl's Cash coupons!

@90mcg112: Are you serious you have that many? I never go there because I think its so expensive and I myself just found out when I went to Chicago. Its actually a great help ya know. Sounds like you would have saved a TON of money...if I were you I would try to sell them- I know a guy that does it.I mean shoot if you have that many I will buy them from you...lol

I just used an expired coupon today at a BBB in NYC. And the expiration date was April 2012 lol. I guess it depends on whether the cashier checks the date or not. In my experience, they just scan them. I also usually use more than one at a time (for different items of course).
