Why No Doubles in Florida?

Ive been couponing for 10 years, so I'm not new, just wondering if anyone knows why there arent any doubles in Florida?

We dont have doubles either since katrina took the good stores away. I was told by a store manager that since there is no competition to double. They dont.

Probably for the same reason that no stores double near me -- there is just no competition, so why should one store start it, yanno?

I have Meijers, but the ones near me are part of the few that do not double. From what I understand, at least, most do double to a certain extent.

I remember some stores doubling back in the 1980's however those grocery stores are long gone. That's the hardest part about shopping in florida stores and stretching the budget dollar. I have also heard that lack competition which why stores don't double.

A. You stole my question for Day #6 in the AFC 30 Day Challenge.

B. I wish I knew why we don't get doubles. It is so frustrating to read about all these great deals people are getting and then realize they got it because they get doubles or (gasp!) triples!! Any money saved is better than none, but I would love to get doubles/triples here!

I know! I know that if one store did it, they would get more business than others. But I guess we just have to suffer

These are the only stores I know of in Florida that double coupons: Harris Teeter, Foodway, Hitchcocks, and Food World. Otherwise, it really just depend on competition in your area. There is no reason for them to start doubling if they don't have to in order to get you to shop there.

There is *one* store that doubles out here in NWI, it is called Wiseway. But, they will only double up to $5 -- meaning your doubled coupons cannot exceed a $5 limit. Sure if I lived close I would probably take advantage, like every other store they must have good deals some times...But I don't live close at all so $5 is not going to tempt me to drive 30 minutes away. Plus you have to have gotten their circular with the doubler coupon, apparently it isn't available in store.

We don't get doubles here in San Antonio because stupid HEB ran off all the grocery stores that double.

That being said, HEB does have pretty good prices and meal deals so maybe it evens out.

I have no stores here in NM that double. Albertsons rounded all coupons under .50 to 1.00 for three weeks last month, but they haven't since the week after Christmas. But even when they rounded them up their prices were still too high for me. Went in for a few things I was able to get free. Wish Smith's (Kroger) would, they did round all coupons to $1.00 twice last year only. It's depressing the deals other get, but I look at I'm still saving my family money. But what I wouldn't give to have doubles all the time.

Back in the late 80's Goodings, Winn Dixie and Albertsons would double. Then it went down to just Goodings and they limited it to only coupons under 50 cents. Needless to say they are out of business now so that is why there are none in the Orlando area that double.

I'm in LA (that's Lower Alabama, for the under educated here!) & only Food World will double, but their prices are so high that I never set foot inside their store. So, I don't even know how restrictive their doubling policy might be.

Woman in Auburndale FL on Extreme Couponing show

I happened to just start watching the show. Her name is Missy Eby. Her blog page on polkmoms look up MissyEby (Since I am a new poster, they won't let me put up a website. You know how to do the dot-com thing.)

Her website is feedinggodspeople.

There was also an atricle about the episode on her in her local paper calld The Ledger. You can type her name in the search bar.

I watched her show, and i noticed her savigns was more the overage that she got from buying the excedrine. I have done that as well but never bought that many bottles. Sometimes to get the overage you have to buy stuff like the ecotrin/metimucil i think that gave us like $2.00 in overage. But i was still new then and didnt know how to work it. you live and you learn right!

Yes! I remember double couponing in the '80's and early '90's. Food Lion and WD doubled and occasionally would triple. Not sure why it stopped?

Fyi trade some inserts if you can!!!

why because I have been experimenting. I have found that the coupons from up north are often different from what we get here in orlando. For example the 6/5 p & g insert has coupon for $0.25/1 here in orlando. My friend from CT who sends me inserts the same P & G insert has $1.00/1 6pk of bounty..

now in reverse many of them didnt get the $5.00/1 john freid a coupon, but only the $2.00/1 and the $3.00/1, where we got all three. family dollar has the bounty 6pk for $5.00 (q-1.00) $4.00( i normally get on sale for $6.99)!!!
