Yesterday I received an email from a reader Craig, letting me know that a sign at his local Meijer stated that ALL Meijer stores will be eliminating double coupons effective 8/25/13. After some digging, I found this post buried in the comments on the Meijer Facebook Page regarding this policy change, and an apparent shift toward promoting the Meijer mPerks program:
Sadly the loss of double coupons appears to be a trend. Earlier this year, Kroger announced that they were eliminating double coupons in select markets.
Those of us living in Central Ohio have long enjoyed a generous coupon doubling policy at Meijer, Kroger and Giant Eagle stores, with coupons up to $0.99 truly doubling ($0.99 = $1.98). This is/was rare, as most of the nation appeared to be capped at coupons doubling to $1.
How do you feel about the trend of stores eliminating double coupons? Do you shop at Meijer regularly and do you use the mPerks program? Will this Meijer coupon policy change affect your decision to shop there?
