Myth of Doubling Coupons:
I had this grand idea before moving to a “land of doubles” that doubling would mean FREE groceries and that we could cut our budget in half! It’s not all it seems to be, while I’m very thankful for the $2 savings each time I shop – it by no means is what you would think doubling your coupons means. At Safeway we can double 4 coupons for a maximum savings of $0.50 per coupon up to $2 – not exactly doubling. That is the only store here in Central Oregon (that I’m aware of) that double’s coupons.
The deals and coupons are listed below…
Nice trip! On the Fresh Express $1, I’m not finding it in our Bay Area Safeways (ours is $2.50)
Aw, thanks Jolene. Often times the differences I find come to meat, veggies, and dairy.
Yesterday at Vons, I spent $121 and saved $197…. also received a catalina for $8 off my next purchase and 20 cents of per gallon of gas at my next Von’s fill-up. I was quite proud. Thank you for your help!
That’s wonderful Nichele!
My dad uses my card also so with the volume of purchases I became an elite shopper which among other things allows you to get the $5 deal all weekend. It may benefit some people to share a card.
I’ve never heard of that Andrea!
Neither had I until I saw it on my receipt! It say something like “Thanks for being an elite shopper please call the manager directly if you for any needs” with his phone number.
….and I have called before. Sure enough he answered!
you know I think I have seen/read that before – so very interesting!
It might be worth checking out–I know I really love not having to shop on Friday to get the $5 deals.
andrea, how would i be able to know if im an elite shopper or not? would it say on the receipt? tia.
elite shopper – is that at vons or safeway? that would be nice to have the friday deals all weekend!
Doubles in Bend
Sometimes Albertsons has “twice the value” coupons which will double up to a dollar.
They are only available in the Oregonian though not the Bulletin & only about once a month & only 3 coupons. But it’s $6.00 savings technically instead of $2 at Safeway.
They have also had round up days where all coupons under $1 will round up to $1 unless they are under a quarter. I follow frugal living NW too & she always tells us when these are happening because the store doesn’t really advertise them.
Silly me! How could I have forgotten about Albertsons? Nice to meet you Ginni!
On the Nestle Pure Life water for the Lean Cuisine/Skinny Cow/Nestle Water deal, were you able to just get the plain water or did you have to get the Flavored Splash kind? I see that the coupon says Flavored Splash, but it has artificial sweeteners in it which we can’t/won’t drink.
I have a J4u Personalized price of $2.49 for Fresh Express Complete Salad Kits. There’s a $2 coupon in Fresh Ideas Feb., making it only 49 cents. I haven’t tested yet.
