same with me--only one grocery store that doubles coupons, not Walmart or Kmart. Walgreens has separate program to sign up for, but still doesn't double manufacturers coupons and their ads state cannot use store coupons with manufacturer coupons on same product. so I can never do as well on coupon savings as many say they save.

Here in SE Wisconsin, double coupons are generally limited to 5 or 10 during one shopping trip. and only doubled up to a dollar. I can do pretty well, but not like they do on Extreme Couponing.

I don't think there are any stores in my area that double coupons. From what I've read that seems to be the best way to save money.

My Pathmark store on Long Island has senior Mondays where you get an additional 5% off your total bill of $30 or more with their circular coupon. (doesn't include beer, cigs, or gift cards). Plus they double your mfc coupons, so you can get a lot of stuff before you hit the $30 mark.
Are there any Long islanders on this team? Please go to my page and let me know.

Just googled for that area coupon matchup blogs, but didn't come up with one that looked good. Found one. She seems to say there may be a Kroger in your area. Many Kroger stores double. But her matchups seem old and not very helpful.

Well, I am working on increasing my savings. I spent $100.00 last grocery trip, ( an every two week trip) and I had a savings of over $60.00 between coupons and store bogos and sales. I really love it! I always watch the local grocery store adds and usually go to two different stores within two or three miles of my house. I make a list of needed items, check adds, organize my coupns and head out! A little time consuming, but I figure it is like any other job and it pays well!
I have not found double couponing in my area, if anyone lives in NC Florida and knows of a store, please let me know.emoticon

I also recommend very highly finding a blog who does coupon matchups for your local area. It will help tremendously. And CVS and Walgreens are fun. Something free every week or two. After ECBs or RRs anyway.

In NC Harris Teeter doubles coupons up to 99 cents. Love this store. I use southern savers web site to find great deals. You pick the store you want and matches sale items with coupons. I get lots of free stuff. I really love shopping at CVS, Walgreens and Rite Aid.

Does not Kroger do the double coupon thing anymore. I cant find any stores that does it anymore. Does any of your stores do it?

I live in Canada so a lot of these ideas don't work here unfortunately but I do work at Save On Foods and if you shop there on the first Tuesday of every month you save 15% of your order over $50.00, plus any coupons you may have on top of this. I can save more than I spend if I plan it right. Also save.ca is a great site. Thanks for all your tips!!!

I always have trouble remembering the cycle. but I do love to take advantage of my coupons. I have stockpiles in my cabinet and fridge of lots of free or almost free stuff.

It's not about getting what you want, it's about wanting what you got.

Sweetcanela1 is correct. Grocery prices fall to there lowest in a 12 week cycle. You must begin stockpiling your purchases on this cycle, and then you will see the savings. I bought $375 worth of groceries and only paid $69. Most of what I got was free. If most of you are from the east visit supercouponing.com. This is an awesome sight. Jill outlines all the sales and matches all of the coupons with them. I still use her sight as there are many coupon links to print coupons. I live in the west. You can learn alot from her sight. Good couponing!!

Yes getting to savings like what was shown takes about a year or so to do. You do have to use coupons for only things that are on sale, but as stated below usually when you are starting out you can't do that. But if you stockpile or buy more than you need to last to the next sale, certain items, eventually you can get to the point where huge savings are possible. It does take a while though. True sales run 12 -24 weeks so you have to buy that to make it to the next sale and some times even that is not possible. I've been doing this for about 6 months and I'm finally getting up to the big savings. I save between 60-70% and a week and a half ago I got $419 worth of groceries for $109. Shopped at 4 different stores two of which double coupons. But $100 for 25 cents is a once in a lifetime perfect storm kind of thing.

I think that there are different stores each time. Also, I heard something about the ones not doubling this week are doubling in a couple weeks or something? Not sure if that's right. You can check your local ad or call Kmart to find out if your store is doubling. You can also email Kmart online and ask if any stores near you are doubling.

Some kmarts are doing double coupons this week! Best way to find out if yours is is to email the company and they will give you the list of the closest Kmart that is doubling.

I read all posts and got great tips. The Kroger supermarket always doubles coupons plus every Tuesday is senior citizen day which gives us even further discounts (which is age 55 & up by the way).

I get internet coupons from mycoupons and smartsource. I go through mypoints.com to get to mycoupons. That way, I get points for redeeming the coupons as well. My Kmart doesn't take internet coupons but they have a week of double coupons about once a month. They double up to the $2 coupons. It's a fantastic way to get health and beauty supplies. I do most of my grocery shopping at Harris Teeter which doubles up to $.99 and periodically they triple. Last week, they tripled for the entire 7 days.

Well i know lol that you won't save 100 bucks each time you shop but thats precisely why i usually do not pay attention to those "helpful hints" etc on TV. I know how to shop smart, and i spend no more then 200 bucks a month for three people. and that includes non food items (tp, papertowls if need be, detergent,etc).

*NOTE: check out the may ALL YOU issue coming out in two wks. lol my mom'n i are in it for couponing etc* : D

I saw CouponMom on the Today show too & unfortunately the example she shows of saving $100 or more on groceries is a little misleading. Yes, you can potentially save that IF you only buy what is in the sale circular & you have coupons for things. Realistically though, the average person is going to have to buy items that aren't part of a sale & that you may not have coupons for so although you can save a bundle using coupons, it is not likely that you'll save $100 each time.

With that said, I do use coupons ALL the time. For groceries, we usually will get about a $40 savings between coupons, store sales or store rebates. I still think that's pretty good. Plus my store gives gas coupons so we get $ off gas.

I use Ecoupons on Upromise too but they don't get taken off the total price at the register. The savings gets deposited into your UPromise account.

In my area, Kroger does double coupons up to 50 cents so I go there more now. Plus I'm on their mailing list so they send store coupons for stuff my husband and I have bought in the past(like a free 6pk of Deer Park!). Food Lion is okay plus they joined Upromise savings. Some stores do not take computer coupons(printed on my printer) because they say some coupons sites are popping up and do not redeem the stores back for the coupons. So be careful with those.

My local store doesnt do coupon doubling...which sucks...but I try and do multiple coupons...like lately for my fiber one products I can get a toast pastry for free if I buy 2 other products and I use coupons on those so that works out well...

I do the electronic coupons with Upromise, but can only use them at Pick'n Save and CVS, as that is the only ones in the Upromise program in my area of Wisconsin. So it depends on your area. But what is the best is combining. Buying something free or almost free and getting some money into your Upromise account too. I have been a Upromise member though for a few years and have only amassed $50. So you don't raise funds quickly with Upromise unless you buy stuff online, etc.

And when it comes to doubling, save almost all coupons that are $1 off one and you can get a lot of those items free or almost free.

So i saw Coupon Mom on The Today Show the other day and i was in SHOCK of $100 of groceries that she got for 25cents. Boy i wish i could do that. So i went to her site and i read her ebook a little bit and she talked about double coupons and such.

Would you believe that every time i went food shopping at wal-mart i went because i could comp food but never used my coupons that i loved to clip so much. Meantime my local grocery store allows for double coupons up to 1.00 EVERY day!!!! I could have been saving SO much money!!! I am so going to start clipping my coupons now!

I also read about E-Coupons that you can clip to your card electronically and it'll automatically be taken off w/your card at the store from Upromise and other stores. Did anyone ever do this? I'm completely intrigued!

I may not have been ON the biggest loser but i'm on the website. Check me out!
