I can’t say that I’m surprised.. but yes I am disappointed. In the Vons ad for the 7/25 week, you will find a small blurb at the end of your ad stating the Vons stores will only accept manufacturer coupons at face value.
What does this mean for you?
Effective 8/1/2012–your $0.50 coupon will no longer double at the store making it $1.
The sad truth of this is that Albertsons may follow suit and eliminate double the value coupons. When it comes to double coupons there must be a market for it in a specific area. Now that two large grocery chains have eliminated it in the So Cal area–there is no longer a need for it here.
How does this make you feel?
