Question Double coupon stores?

Does anyone know of any stores in the Ft Myers, FL or the SW FL area that doubles coupons?

sw fl double coupons

I too looked for double coupons in Port Charlotte and Punta Gorda. There doesnt seem to be anyone doing it anymore. But I signed up for Winndixie reward card and saved almost 300.00 in 2 months. .This week they have buy 1 get 2 free. the signup is free.It only takes a minute and you can use coupons at the same time. 2 weeks ago I got 385.00 groceries for252.00. That helped me stock up for hurricane season.

I'm from Cape Coral, too. Thanks for the info. I'm perusing their ad and checking my coupons. Wish there was someplace that offered double coupons, too. I miss that from "up north"

I'm in FL also. When we first moved here (1989), Kasn nKarry and Gooding's both doubled coupons, but they stopped some time back, and I don't know anyone else still doing it. The Winn-Dixie card that just came out recently is just excellent and well worth using. It's free to apply. Each month, they have a different awards program. The first money, if you spent $200, you got a free Cure 81 ham or Butterball turkey breast. Second month, if you spent $200, you got a 10% off shopping spree, if you spent $300, you got 15% off, if you spent $400, you got 20% off. Plus each week, there are specials that are for cardholders only, and most of those are exceptional deals, plus you can apply coupons. For instance, they have BOGOfree on stuff, and will take two coupons. Winn-Dixie is one of the lower-priced supermarkets anyway. I find their quality ranges widely from store to store, find one that has a lot of traffic and turnover of mdse, you get fresher perishables that way. Food Lion in FL is normally the cheapest, but I don't find their meats and dairy to be fresh.

If you have a SuperWalMart near you, they honor all other stores' advertised prices and they even post the flyers right there in the store. So if Food Lion has a great deal on cauliflower and Publix has a great deal on cheese and Winn-Dixie has a great deal on chicken and Albertson's has steaks, you can get SWM will match their prices.

I've got my WDixie card, Kash & Karry card, UPromise acct., and do the Eckerd & Walgreen all-in-ones. Use coupons, shop @ thrifts, frequent Dollar Tree, buy in bulk, on clearance, and stockpile!
Still wish someone down here would double...I know I'd drive up to 50 miles to go to them.

I'm not from FL but I got really excited yesterday a store in my area regularly offers double cupons up to & including .50, but I went through the sale papers yesterday and found a store offering $1.00 double cupons and another offering $1.25! Needless to say I went right for the cupon box! LOL!

double coupons

Here in Ohio they double all coupons up to .50 cents=1.00 etc. I don't understand why everyone doesn't do that-we have had it this way since 1980. All of you should write your local stores corp. office and ask for it, tell them who ever does it first will get all of your business. Pressure from the customer really does work and they won't offer if you don't ask. I wish you all the best of luck in getting this in.

Here in Arizona they double coupons all over except for ALBERTSON'S. FRY'S(who has been bought out by KROGER'S) has even tripled coupons sometimes. Just a tip>>> If the coupons are really good in the Sunday paper, and ones I use alot, I will pick up a couple extra papers, just for the coupons.
How does everyone file their coupons? I use a recipe box (the big one) and have dividers, with different colors at the top. Each item has it's own home, example Aspirins, Baking, Butter, etc. etc.
Works pretty good, but always looking for new ways. (Hope this makes sense, as I am terrible at explaining things. I keep a rubber band around it, and then as I pull the coupons at the store, I place them in the lid of the box behind the rubber band.

Wouldn't it be nice if everyone just lowered their prices and did away with coupons. Look at all the extra time we would have, and think how fast we could get in and out of the store.
