Sing this to the beat of American Pie:
Bye Bye my free Sara Lee Pie
With no doubles and no triples I think I might cry
Kroger will give me face value instead
Come April 13 we all will cry
Singing this will be the day doubles died!
Ok, (sorry, but songs help me cope with depressing news) I wish I didn't have depressing news for you Houston and surronding area residents (yes that means you Galveston and Bryan/College Station, Orange, Clute) but unfortunately I do.
It is the executive decision of Kroger to put a stop to double and triple coupons in Houston and surronding area starting April 13, 2011! This information came directly from the district office and I can try to answer your questions and concerns. Those I cannot answer, I will forward to my contacts with hopes of getting answers for you.
Excerpts from Kroger:
With the growing popularity of digital coupons, mobile apps and manufacturers producing coupons valued at more than 50 cents, we feel it’s an ideal time to test out a new money-saving program and discontinue double/triple. There’s a possibility we may re-introduce double/triple by hosting special shopping events intermittently.
We will still continue to accept coupons at face value. Part of the new policy states there is a limit of one electronic or paper manufacturer coupon per item. The opportunity to stack is no longer available. A digital coupon and manufacturer paper coupon may not be combined on the purchase of a single item. More than 130 digital coupons are available daily at http://www.kroger.com/.
If you have loaded an electronic coupon to your Kroger Plus card, then the digital coupon will apply before the manufacturer paper coupon. A digital coupon cannot be removed from a transaction once redeemed.
I strongly urge you to use your .35 and .50 coupons NOW before doomsday!
Kroger is working to draft a more detailed coupon policy and the instant I hear about it, I will be sure to share it will all of you! Please leave your comments and I will be more than happy to forward them to Kroger. You may also want to visit Kroger on their facebook page and share your feelings on this very sad news.
Also, if you would like a wealth of information about Kroger and to join a like minded group of couponers that are upset with these changes. please visit the Kroger Couponers group a fellow couponer (that I admire!) has created. Join us in our boycott in hopes Kroger will reinstate doubles and triples in our region. Thanks Dealz for the support group <3
We hope to cause a change like the Pampers Dry Max moms did!
