Hurry and print this high value CoverGirl BOGO coupon. It is a standard buy one get one free coupon, but there is no dollar limit in the coupon barcode. Most checkout systems should automatically deduct the price of the lower item, but theoretically, a shopper could buy two $15 items and get one free.
While the checkout systems should automatically deduct the value of the free item, many stores have programmed their checkout computers to require the cashier to manually enter the price of the free item. I believe Walmart’s computers are programmed to automatically deduct the value of the free item, and I would expect they would deduct the value of the less expensive item regardless of scanning order.
This coupon contains three different family code and manufacturer code combinations, so it should work for most CoverGirl products. The coupon does contain an expiration date, but the expiry of the coupon we printed was a few days longer than what the coupon said. The way the coupon is coded used up so many digits that they did not have room for a tracking number, so this coupon does not contain tracking.
The coupon barcode has 69 digits out of the allowable 70 characters, so it can be difficult to scan. If you want to use this coupon at the store, make sure you use a good print quality. However, the ability of the coupon to scan at checkout will probably depend on how new the store’s scanners are.
As Coty has recently purchased CoverGirl and Clairol, they are in a rapid transition phase. To prevent coupon errors, we encourage Coty (and all coupon issuers) to use CHEQR which is a coupon barcode verification app. CHEQR includes multiple reporting tools within the app to allow manufacturers full visibility into how their coupon barcodes are encoded. CHEQR Pro includes all the aspects of CHEQR but also includes a user friendly wizard for creating accurate barcodes every time. We can schedule a personalized demonstration of the app anytime.
