The shelves were already looking empty as I was shopping at 4 o’clock this afternoon. Ask someone to check in back if the shelves are empty.
If they do not have it get a raincheck and have customer service staple ad section showing gas bonus point  deal or have them write it right on the
rain check. They are good for 60 just have to make sure you redeem raincheck before your coupons expire.

Happy shopping!!

  1. Janet Says:

    Great trip! You’re so lucky to get gas points in Buffalo. Rochester gets $ off instantly or OYNO, much less than your gas savings. And, unfortunately, my Tops was out of the Nestle dark chips that I needed for my coupons, and the particular Ragu that I like. Try, try again!

  2. Missy Says:

    I was looking at Tops coupon policy and was wondering about the buy 1 get 1 free. If I am reading it right will they let you use the buy 1 get 1 free ocean spray printable coupon? The following is from there policy. I am new to the area so wanted to make sure before I head there tomorrow.
    Thank You!
    Internet Coupons:

    We will not accept internet coupons for “free” product, buy one get one free products or a value greater than $5.00.

    • Missy,

      You are correct–I always forget since they changed it to B1G1 also. I did run to the store in rush on Sunday and it did scan no beeping so I did not think it was an issue. And there are very rarely B1G1 internet coupons anymore. they normally come from the newspaper. I will be working on post and update tonight–sorry for confusion
