Utah's Double Coupon Options
Written by Alex Bach
The double coupon craze has been sweeping the nation. Shoppers across the country have been raving about the extra savings and assembling a community of like-minded shoppers in order to parse out every double coupon opportunity.
But What Are Double Coupons Are Why Are People So Excited For Them?
Double coupons are an agreement or sorts between grocery stores and their customers that for cents-off coupons brought in, the store will double the coupon's advertised discount. This turns coupons for $0.55 off yogurt to savings of $1.10 off yogurt--which, depending on the price and store, can bring the final price pretty close to free
. Savings for $1.00 off cereal become $2 off cereal; and so forth.
As you can see, these double discounts can lead to some pretty amazing savings, and can change your whole game plan when it comes to making your grocery lists. Most of these double coupons are offered in weekly circulars, newspapers or magazines
and can be used to set a tasty and economical menu for the week.
Well Then, Bring On the Double Coupons!
While the majority of customers revel in the savings of double discounts, not every grocery store feels the same, and many in the state of Utah do not honor double coupons.
Well, for starters, the double savings have to come from somewhere, and while manufacturer's coupons will reimburse grocery stores for the discount, the additional discount comes out of the grocer's end. Many stores can't or don't choose to offer double coupon programs.
Are There Any That Double?
A note about doubling at both of these stores. The Walmarts in Utah County regularly double coupons, but most Walmarts in the state do not. Kmart only doubles for certain events, however, when they have those events, Walmart usually has a tandem event doubling coupons as well.
There are only two major grocery stores in Utah that will double coupons, Walmart and K-Mart.
only doubles coupons on Tuesdays up to $0.50 cents; they will, however, bring discounts over $0.50 up to a dollar. For instance, $0.75 off becomes $1.00 off; while the double discount would have been $1.50, not all stores will round savings beyond their accepted doubling up.
Kmart has certain periods where they will double coupons
. During those windows customers will still have to follow their coupon policy: a balance of $25 must first be reached before coupons can be used; you must have Kmart's rewards card to get the double discount; customers can only use up to five coupons per day.
