    Question about coupon expiration dates

     We have a question from a reader:

    Can manufacturer coupons be used on the expiration date?  
    or do they expire the day before? 
    I don't think I've ever tried to use one the date of expiration. Any experiences?

    Re: Question about coupon expiration dates

    I would think the coupon would be valid until 11:59PM on the expiration date. Say it is to expire on June 26, 2009, then it is good until 11:59PM on June 26th, after all technically it is still June 26th until midnight, right!

    Until we Newf again....

    Funny, I had this situation last month with a dish soap coupon.  I used it about 8pm on the day of, and had no problems.

    I have used a couple on the expiration date and had no trouble.

    I have used the coupons on the last day without any problem. I usually redeem coupons at Harris Teeter.
