Default Tide trial size NOT P&G!!!

On Facebook, Tide put out this message:

"The coupon does not have a size restriction [$2 in this week's paper] and is valid on all Tide detergent that is distributed by Procter & Gamble. The single use packets are not distributed by P&G and therefore the store reserves the right to choose not to accept the coupon on that item. I hope this helps with any confusion. We license the Tide name and actual product to another company (in this case Cotton Buds) to distribute one use packets of the product. It is actually Tide in the package but it is distributed by the other company. Since that product isn't distributed by P&G the stores reserve the right to deny a manufacturer's coupon on that product. I hope this helps."

What are your thought about using the P&G coupon for overage on the trial size even though it is NOT from P&G?

IMHO Tide is Tide. It states on ANY Tide product and the trial packs are just that... A TIDE PRODUCT!!! They should have put ETS on the coupon if they knew this is how it would be used. Again JMHO

That being said, I don't even think I'll bother with the coupon this time around. It's just not worth the frustration.....

I agree, Tide is Tide. But totally not worth the frustration for me to try to use it.

But man! Thanks for this post. I've been wondering about why it beeps.

Let the games begin....

I only tried to use this coupon once when I first started using coupons. It was such an ordeal I said forgetaboutit!

However, this new development does bring up a valid point. Yes, it's a Tide product but if it's not distributed by Tide does that mean that coupon is applicable?

Similar to using a Vicks coupon on Puffs with Vicks.

If Tide is already stating this I would be willing to bet said correspondence has or will be shared.
