Oregon's Double Couponing Options
Written by Alex Bach
Double coupons are the latest trend for smart grocery shopping, and one many are hoping won't go out of style anytime soon.
What Are Double Coupons?
Double coupons are essentially no different than other coupons you might find in your weekly circulars or newspapers. That is, they don't have a different look or labelling that makes them "double coupons;" the doubling only exists at the register of participating grocery stores.
What double coupons are, essentially, are cents-off coupons whose value doubles when you redeem
them at the checkout. So, a coupon for $0.50 off a product such as a box of cereal, becomes a coupon for $1.00 once you checkout.
Are These Savings Awesome?
Well Then, Excuse Me While I Run Off and Become the MVP of Double Couponing.
Wait! While double coupons are, as mentioned earlier, awesome, they are not always available and there are usually restrictions. For instance, most grocery stores that double coupons will only double coupons up to a certain value, usually up to $0.99.
As such, you won't be able to redeem a $2.50-off coupon for $5.00 dollars off; while that would be a great way to save towards a new Porsche with your MVP title, it doesn't unfortunately work that way.
The savings have to come from somewhere, and that somewhere happens to be the grocery store's bottom line. Unlike rebates, where the manufacturer supplies the discount, double coupons take the discount out of their end.
The double savings are a way for a store to generate more traffic and pack the aisles, but not every store can afford to take the hit to their profit margin. This is why double coupons are not always offered and why those that do are sometimes treated like an unearthed buried treasure.
So Which Stores In Oregon DO Double Coupons?
doubles retailer and manufacturer coupons up to $0.99; they will not double printed electronic coupons. However, only certain Safeways double coupons so you'll have to check with your local Safeway to see if they do.
, too, changes from store to store. Some stores will double, others will not. Coupon policies are posted in each Albertsons near their checkout. Many Albertsons have certain days of the week where they double coupons.
Thriftway will double manufacturer's coupons available in their weekly circulars.
