What Is Doubling/Tripling Coupons?

An advanced "technique" in couponing is called doubling coupons or tripling coupons. I'm here to tell you what it is and how to utilize it effectively.

     Doubling/tripling coupons is when you give your store a manufacturer coupon of a certain value and they double it (or triple it). For example, if I had a .55/1 manufacturer coupon the store will double it to $1.10/1 instead. If your store triples coupons, then the .55/1 coupon will triple to be $1.65/1. When stores do this it is great and a lot easier to get free items.

     An important thing to know about doubling/tripling coupons is many stores will only double/triple to a certain amount. In your stores coupon policy it may say: Our stores will double up to .99 cents.
What this mean is they will only double coupons that have a face value (value of coupon) of .99 cents or lower. So, if you hand them a $1/1 coupon they won't double it.

     Another important aspect of doubling/tripling coupons is not all stores allow it. For example, CVS, Walgreen's, and Rite Aid don't double coupons. Also, your local grocery store might not allow it either. So in order to figure out if your store does, you need to pick up a copy of your stores coupon policy. A lot of times, you can go to their website and print it out online. You can also pick up a copy at the customer service desk (just ask them).

     Saving money is a lot easier if your stores double or triple coupons. However, it isn't the end of the world if they don't. As long as you have coupons handy, saving money is simple.
