JCPenney coupon giveaway returns after store closures and bankruptcy
JCPenney is bringing back its popular gift coupon in time for its 120th anniversary.
Stores will welcome the first 120 shoppers on Saturday with $10 off $10 coupons, which is the first coupon offered since the coronavirus pandemic, JCPenney confirmed to USA TODAY.
It is also the first promotion like this since JCPenney emerged from bankruptcy after permanently closing 175 stores. The department store chain was one of the largest retailers to file for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection at the start of the pandemic in May 2020.
Shopping center owners Simon Property Group and Brookfield Property Group bought the retailer out of bankruptcy in December 2020, saving it from liquidation.

Before the pandemic, JCPenney gave out the $10 off $10 coupons during its Black Friday sale that started during Thanksgiving with some getting coupons up to $500 off $500. The coupons were also distributed regularly during sales weekends.
