Target coupon policy change!

So all of you may know that I love shopping at Target. That store always has great deals and good clearnace prices. They have daily price cuts and it's just my favorite store hands down. As many of you may have heard, they changed their coupon policy. I'm guessing this is change #1 and change #2. My personal opinion is that more stores are going to change their coupon policy due to the millions of couponers out there now getting not only getting products for cheap but also for free. Now I dont understand why this has became an issue I mean stores are getting thier money back on every coupon used right? Anyways here it is.

Change #1
BOGO coupons cannot be combined (i.e. you cannot use two BOGO coupons on two items and get both for free).

The second change:
A second cents-off coupon of the same type cannot be redeemed towards the purchase price of the first item.
o If a Target BOGO coupon is used, one additional manufacturer coupon maybe used on the first item.
o If a Manufacturer BOGO coupon is used, one additional Target coupon may be used on the first item.
This is a very important change because in essence Target is saying that you can not use a second manufacturer coupon when you are using a BOGO manufacturer coupon. You can use a second Target coupon though. So this means that scenarios like the one below will not be allowed (the coupons mentioned are just for illustration purposes, they are not actual coupons)

NOT allowed:
Buy two Gillette Body wash $3.99
Use one $2/1 Gillette Body wash coupon from 5/1 P&G insert
PLUS Use one BOGO Gillette Body wash coupon from 5/1 P&G insert
Pay $1.99 for two after coupons
BUT you can do:
Buy two Gillette Body wash $3.99
Use one $2/1 Gillette Body wash TARGET coupon from homemailer
PLUS Use one BOGO Gillette Body wash coupon from 5/1 P&G insert
Pay $1.99 for two after coupons
OR you can also do:
Buy two Gillette Body wash $3.99
Use one $2/1 Gillette Body wash coupon from 5/1 P&G insert
PLUS Use one BOGO Gillette Body wash TARGET coupon from homemaile
Pay $1.99 for two after coupons

This is a very important change especially if you shop at Target often like I do or even when putting together your trips keep in mind of this change. I would also recommend printing this change out and keeping it in your coupon binder just incase you get stuck or you forget how it works. What a bummer that this has changed but I won't be surprised if they change another coupon policy soon!
