Here we go, yet another store will be eliminating doubling policies in select stores effective March 30, 2013. We have already seen Marsh Supermarkets and Kroger in select markets start eliminating double coupons as part of their coupon policy. Personally, I feel like this is a direct affect from TLC’s Extreme Couponing show and new federal tax increases that have went into effect this year.
As of right now (3/4), Meijer doubling policies are the same as they have been, which varies by region. However, most of you in my readership area have doubles up to $0.50 (two like coupons.)
Here’s what Meijer has to say about the changes:
In an effort to keep our everyday prices as low as possible, Meijer will no longer double coupons in select stores, starting March 30. However, we will still accept coupons at face value, and is still offering great savings to our customers with everyday low prices, weekly specials and mPerks digital coupons. Customers should check with their local Meijer store for details.
Once we have a list of the stores that this will apply to, we will let you know. In the meantime, we will still update you on the best deals using the Meijer Coupon-Matchups for the Cincinnati (Sun-Sat ads) and Indianapolis area ad (Thur-Weds).
This is such a bummer to those of us who count on doubling to keep our grocery budget low. Will this affect your family?
