I did see this one coming. The Kroger stores in Texas stopped doubling and I sort of had the feeling this would happen at All Ralphs stores here in So Cal. Why? Who knows. If they don’t think double coupons are a reason that people shop at their store–well, they have another thing coming :)
Effective 4/1/2012 Ralphs will only accept coupons at their face value. They are also taking away the quarterly rewards effective 5/1/2012.
I’m sad but with situations like these you have to take it for what it’s worth. If there is a great deal, yes I will still shop there I personally only shop at Ralphs because of the double coupons so they will be losing some business from me. I am not bitter–as a consumer I know there are many other choices for me. As a couponer, I’ve learned that you can not have loyalty to one store. You just won’t save doing that.
You can find more info on the front of your Ralphs ad in the mail tomorrow.
How do you feel about this?
