I was just flipping through my coupons and I have soooooo many for $.55! That stinks! I know they do it because most stores only double up to $.50. A $.30 would be worth more at Kroger than a $.55 one! I wish Kroger was like the stores that will bump anything between $.50 and $1 up to $1. That would be nice.

I'll jump on the "no doubling" bandwagon. Ashley is trying to make us all jealous. It worked.

Do you have a Fred's? Sometimes they're worth it; sometimes they aren't. If you haven't checked them out, you should at least try. It's a store that's popping up all over FL. There's now two in my town.

I have never seen one of these. I may have to look them up to see if there are any close to my work or home.

Nope, none near me. But you never know when one may be built. I think that it is funny that they have one in the small town where I used to live but not here.

There's TWO here--that's also weird. There aren't THAT many people. Though, we also have two Kash N Karry's, a Sweetbay, three Publix stores, two dollar trees, three dollar generals, etc... I guess they think there's a need for all those.

I didn't think there were any Meijers in MI that doubled!? Grrr. Now, I will investigate further. If mine has doubled all along and no one told me, someone is in trouble. Does the register double is automatically there, or is this something I'd have to remind them about?

Hmm.. well, i went to one very stupid ghetto meijer once, and they didnt double or take printed coupons....

But, my 'nice' meijer does both! The cashier doubles all by herself, i dont ever have to remind her or anything. She types it in as 'extra coupon' But, in my meijer ad, on the back (maybe the front) on the bottom it says the sale dates, and then "Double coupons up to .50" We have 3 meijer stores close to us, but that one ghetto one doesnt double, or at least didnt double mine that day... Check and see, cuz now you got me curious!!
