Agreement on double coupons
An unclear coupon policy in central New York has earned Price Chopper $100,000 in penalties and costs.
According to an agreement between Price Chopper and the state Attorney General's Office, double coupon savings were advertised and lacked a clear disclosure of restrictions.
The entire agreement and examples of the advertisements are available below.
Consumers believed, said the agreement, that the lack of publicized restrictions meant that all coupons, including $1 coupons, would be doubled.
State Attorney General Eric Schneiderman's office called the practice deceptive and misleading. Price Chopper spokeswoman Mona Golub fired back that they were appalled and disappointed by the state's characterization of events.
