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.

  • 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 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 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.

  • Oh, the most I've saved was $38 on $300

    Answer by Izsarejman at 11:14 PM on Dec. 7, 2012

  • Nope. I can't remember a dollar amount, but the most I've ever saved is around 50%. Still pretty good for all that work involved in clipping coupons and figuring out deals/sales.
