Store Coupon: This is a coupon for an item from a particular store. Most Target coupons come from the website so it will say, “Target Web Coupon.” Publix Coupons will say, “Store Coupon, reedemable at Publix.” Sometimes a manufacturers coupon will say, “reedemable at dollar general.” That DOES NOT mean you can only use it at Dollar General. Some Publix coupons will actually say “manufacturers coupon” on them. Unless it says “redeemable ONLY at Publix, or ONLY at Dollar general, then you can use it anywhere.
