Double Coupons and Double Stacks: What's the difference?

Double coupons, double stacks, double savings! Be sure to tune into Ask Angie to learn some awesome tips on doubling coupons and using double stack coupons.

There are two different ways to double coupons. Some stores will allow you to double the value of a coupon up to $1. This term is call "double coupons" and it only is found in Double Land, (where I'm not from). For example, if you have a coupon for cat food and the amount shown on the coupon is for fifty cents, a store that doubles coupons will give you $1 off if you've met the coupon terms.

Double coupons may be offered on certain days at certain stores. Check your local store's coupon policy or call and ask an associate.

Here is a list of stores that double the value of coupons, although the Coupon Policy might change for some locations:
  • Buehlers Fresh Foods- Will double manufacturer and internet coupons up to 99¢ (LIMIT 5 per LIKE item).
  • FoodLand Stores- Will also limit one coupon per item unless the coupon states otherwise. 
  • Harris Teeter- Doubles coupons up to a face value of $0.99 every day, with total amount not to exceed $1.98 or entire retail price of the item, whichever is less. 
  • Meijer- Doubles up to $0.99 with a limit of 2 identical coupons and customers may also combine one manufacturer coupon per item with applicable Meijer coupon(s) where allowed under coupon redemption terms.
  • Piggly Wiggly- Will double up to 10 coupons per customer/household per day with The Pig Card; all other coupons presented will redeem at face value. 
  • Remke Markets- Coupons with a face value of greater than $0.51 but less than $1 will be “doubled” up to $1. Exclusions apply.
  • PublixTennessee and Northern Alabama will double any manufacturer coupon up to $0.50 any day of the week. (Varies by region)
  • Safeway- Check with your local store regarding double coupon promotions. (Varies by region)

If you're like me and you live in an area where they don't double the value of coupons, don't worry! You can still get great deals without doubling the value of the coupons. You can use double coupon stacks!

Double coupon stacks are when you use two coupons per product. The two coupons MUST be two different types coupons, such as one store coupon and one manufacturer coupon.

Here is a list of stores that will accept double coupon stacks:

CVS- CVSPharmacy accepts Coupons (ExtraBucks® Rewards, offers at register or printed from®) and valid internet/print at home coupons containing a barcode. CVS will also accept original third party manufacturer coupons that contain a barcode and must not be a reproduction or a rebate. CVS Pharmacy allows ONE CVS/pharmacy and ONE third party manufacturer coupon per item. ExtraBucks®Rewards coupons can be applied toward the final cost. Normal exclusions apply. 

Walgreens- When purchasing a single item, Walgreens accepts one manufacturer coupon and applicable Walgreens coupon(s) for the purchase of a single item, unless prohibited by either coupon offer.

Target- Target has it's own coupons, They can be found in the form of Cartwheel Offers, Mobile Coupons, Newspaper Coupons and Printable Coupons. Target will allow only one manufacturer coupon (paper or Cartwheel digital), one Target coupon (paper or digital), and one Cartwheel offer can be combined per item (unless otherwise noted on coupon). 

Publix- Publix will accept a manufacturer's coupon and either a Publix or a competitor’s coupon on the same item. Maximum of two coupons per item. Money due back to the customer at the end of a transaction involving coupons will only be provided on a Publix gift card.

Kroger- Coupons will be limited to redemption from products currently on-hand at the store location.

Rite Aid- Rite Aid will accept up to three (3) coupons on one item: one (1) Manufacturer Coupon, a Rite Aid coupon. Rite Aid does not double coupons.

Using store coupons can save you big! But every major grocery store and drugstore has different policies about coupons. You may want to call your local store and inquire about their coupon policy.
