Good morning Laura,

Congrats on the 100,000! That must be so exciting for you. I checked my email this morning and was glad to see I had received your blog. I have one quick question about the meijer coupon policy. You had mentioned that they will only double 2 idenitcal coupons and that's what I have read on macomb money savers as well. However when I use identical coupons I always have more than 2 doubled. For instance I purchased 10 bags of chex mix and used 8 manufacturer coupons with 2 mealbox. All 8 of the chex doubled. Could this just be a fluke or possibly the store. I shop at the hall and hayes. Once in a while at the chesterfield and it seems to do the same. I will however pay much closer attention to see if doing several transactions will be needed.

Wow! You are lucky, that NEVER seems to work for me at my store! Maybe your store is just choosing not to enforce that policy, but typically Meijer just offers the face value of the coupon for the 3+ identical coupons that you spend!


I do notice that the cashier has to manually give me the doubling of the coupon so perhaps that is true the store might just not enforce that policy. I hope they continue to do that lol.
