I don’t clip and save coupons. It always seemed to me that I’d end up buying more stuff I didn’t need to “save” a few cents. However my wife Chris was going through an insert for one of the local grocery store chains over the weekend and thought I might enjoy reading the “rules” for their double discount coupon promotion.
Coupons will only be doubled on Wednesday June 21st.
Customers must present the store’s club card at time of checkout.
Customers must spend $25 in a single transaction in order to double coupons (after tax, store coupons and club card discounts).
Only manufacturers coupons with a face value of a dollar or less will be doubled.
A limit of 5 manufacturers coupons can be doubled.
Thank you sir may I have another.
If the thought of losing money on a promotion doesn’t appeal to you and you can’t justify the loss in order to increase store traffic then don’t do the promotion. The more time it takes to read the fine print, the weaker the idea. There are people who will jump through all these hoops to save an additional five dollars, most likely the same people who’ll make sure they spend $25 and not once cent more. In the meantime, the store comes across as a penny-pinching nit-picking miser. It doesn't make cents to me .
