Well, now we know why Marsh Supermarkets is stopping the doubling of coupons! Because Kroger in the Midwest region (Northern KY, Cincinnati, Dayton) are also eliminating the doubling of coupons as of March 1, 2013. Indiana is currently under the Central Kroger ad and at this time, I’m not sure if this policy affects my Indiana readers. However, I know many of you are in Ohio and will be disappointed.
According to Kroger, this “exciting news for all Kroger shoppers,” due to the lowering of prices on thousands of products. Fuel points will be continued. Managers also have the right to refuse any coupon for any reason. Thanks to the TLC show “Extreme Couponing” for ruining it for all of us legitimate couponers who are just trying to save our families money – not create a mini grocery store in our homes.
What do think? Will Meijer be the next to announce they will discontinue doubling coupons? Personally, I may skip coupons altogether and shop 100% at ALDI if these trends continue.
