Does your grocery store do double coupons? I get so sick of these people who claim they save 500 dollars or get their groceries free.

None of the grOcery stores around here double coupons nor can you use a manufacturers coupon with a store coupon.  What is the most you have ever saved?  

Me: around 38 dollars

  • Yes the show is fake. We have a lady here that was on the show and she outright tells you it was all a set up for TV. Do you notice there is never anyone in the store, or the check out line, just people standing around in awe?? Also, stores are getting very picky about what they will let you do these days. I had two coupons for a free item and they said I could only use one for that visit, not both. So, it just doesn't happen like that.

  • i saved $13 on my last trip with coupons. No stores here double or anything like that t.v. show...
    BUT I bet, if I would have bought a few things generic / store band - I might have saved more than the coupons were worth...

  • I have seen stores here that do double coupons, some everyday, some on certain days.
    I mostly shop at Super Target and get a few items at Wegmans and Harris Teeter, but most of the items I buy there are never any coupons for

    Most I have saved in one trip when buying items on sale was $15

  • My store (Harris Teeter) doubles coupons up to .99. They have special weeks where they will double up to 1.99 or triple coupons. I average saving $25-30/week on groceries. I think the most ever was $52, but I have a family of 7 so I buy a lot

  • I don't really use them for grocery shopping. I shop at Sam's and stock up. It's easiest for me. I do use coupons, but only if it's a great bargain or free item. I use most of my coupons at Sears Grand here, because they have an excellent clearance rack! I get tons of razors and HBA items for great prices.


    You can get the best coupons directly from the manufacturer. They will send you a coupon and possibly free items for you to try. I do use these coupons, but match them with the sale ads.


    There is only one store here that does doubling, but I rarely have to use it. You can check out my blog if you're interested in the latest matchups and things at CouponsRYours.

  • We have stores that will double coupons and that will match store coupons ( like take a store coupon from another store) but none, that I know of, will let you combine offers.
