A couple of you have emailed about this today, and Meijer confirms on their Facebook page: They will be ending double coupons as of August 25, 2013.
It’s true that we no longer double coupons, effective August 25. We are shifting our resources to mPerks digital coupons. Less than five percent of Meijer customer used double coupons, but nearly 1.5 million have signed up for mPerks, with as many as 25,000 joining each week. We are also expanding mPerks to include rewards for our pharmacy. Signing up is easy at: http://bit.ly/TPxSx0. Of course, in addition to mPerks, we will still accept coupons at face value, and still offer our everyday low prices and weekly specials.
This won’t affect us in IL-Chicagoland, where they never doubled anyway. But for those of you who have been relying on doubles elsewhere, it’s a sad day. Their Facebook page is full of angry complaints — many from people who say they’re now going to shop at Kroger, although Kroger has been gradually phasing out doubles as well.
