Kroger announced officially this weekend that they are ending the doubling of coupons in the Mid Atlantic Region.  This will be replaced with new “lower prices”.  All coupon doubles will end on 5/12 in stores in:

Charleston, WV
Richmond, VA
Roanoke, VA
Raleigh/Durham, NC

What does this mean for deals?

For those you that are still near Lowes Foods and Harris Teeter, this isn’t a hard decision.  Kroger will probably lose your business.  From what we have seen in other regions already affected by this new “lower prices” plan, the prices didn’t change much at all and it wasn’t enough to get you to remain loyal to them.  Head to other stores that still run great promotions with coupons and allow stacking of store coupons and manufacturer coupons.

For those that don’t live near another store that doubles…  I would recommend that you start price matching normal Kroger deals at Walmart.  Why?  Rather than heading to Kroger to get the deals they are running you could take all your grocery ads from around town and grab it all in one place.  It makes for a bigger savings when you add in the produce and meat deals that other stores had and not having to drive all over to get them.

There is one exception – when Kroger runs promotional events like this weeks Procter & Gamble event, Walmart will not price match instant savings deals.  So you if you want those items, you would still need to shop in Kroger.

What about other Regions?

We have seen Kroger drop doubling in 3 other regions in the last year.  They already didn’t double in 3 regions… that really only leaves 3 regions left.  Will it come out in the last 3 areas?  I can’t say for sure but I won’t be surprised if the Delta region isn’t next, followed by the Louisville (Mid-South) Region.

While I think it would be a PR nightmare, I won’t be surprised if the Atlanta (South) Region is last.  Can Kroger compete in areas with Publix stores that double, accept competitor coupons, and have tons of store coupons?  They can because of the numbers that don’t coupon at all, but their coupon users will probably disappear.

What will you do?  Does this change your shopping plans or not affect you much?

    • jeff

      Kroger is dying anyway…

    • juel

      I’m guessing Lynchburg, VA is included in this?

      • Elizabeth Brown Montgomery

        There were signs up in the Forest store today.

      • David

        Yup, Timberlake confirmed it on sunday when the news first broke.

    • Tersea

      It will if my Harrisonburg Store does this. Does anyone know if the Harrisonburg, Va store is planning to stop doubling coupons?

      • AmyLeigh540

        Yes, Harrisonburg is stopping too….It the whole region, guess no more trips to Staunton either. So disappointed…it was my mainstay…Food Lion seems to be trying more with coupons since they put in the kiosks.I hate wally world…so I guess I will have to try Martins. I have been having some great luck with Target lately…Wonder if there is anyone that does local Martins matchups? PS it the doubles stop in Hburg May 15th……

    • Rees

      I think they do not want coupon people. Meijer did this concept of lowering the prices storewide for everyone…their words. Interesting twist to the grocery shopping world.

    • Sandi

      It doesn’t change much for me because right now with Kroger doubling they still can’t compete with the low prices and great deals i get at Publix. I rarely find a reason to shop there.

    • KH

      Most of them around here are not very coupon friendly anyway…limit Internet coupons to 3 per DAY (not per “like coupons/items”, or even per transaction…but per day).

    • Melissa

      I will be so upset if they stop doubling coupons in Memphis, TN. Kroger has a monopoly on the grocery market in Memphis. We have no other major grocery chains.

      • Jen_in_Tn

        You said it! It’s crazy we are stuck with Kroger or Walmart. One can get killed going into Walmart around here! There’s always something bad going on there.

      • Judith

        I so wish we would get a Publix. I only go to Kroger now to get my prescriptions and to buy things that I can use double coupons on. I will definitely be price matching at Wal Mart and will probably move my prescriptions to CVS. It is closer anyway.

    • Shankins

      So disappointed in Charlottesville, VA to see Kroger stop doubling. Luckily we still have HT to double and stack coupons.

      • Deirdre

        I’m in Charlottesville too. I started shopping at Kroger because of the U.Va preferred employer discount which was always an extra bonus when I shopped with coupons. 5% is not enough on its own. Looks like Harris Teeter will be getting my full loyalty back again!

        • Leslie

          I shop in Charlottesville too. Don’t forget the new Giant in Pantops. They double up to 99 cents with no limit on coupons. No more Kroger for me!

          • Deirdre

            Thanks Leslie! I’ve never shopped at Giant before because its mildly out of my way. But maybe I’ll have to give it a shot. It was just really nice to go to Barracks Road and hit HT, CVS, and Kroger!

      • It doesn’t say C’ville is included, is it?

    • Sandy

      There will be no need to shop there when they quit doubling coupons. It will be back to Walmart or Food Lion for me, as they are my only other choices.

    • Beth

      I already shop mostly at Publix in the Atlanta area so if Kroger stops doubling here I will stop shopping there altogether!

    • Donna

      I would have no reason to shop at Kroger if they stop doubling in my area. The store is nasty, cashiers are rude, and their prices are too high unless it is on sale.

    • Current1

      The coupon policy at my Kroger is already really restrictive but I rarely shop there. If they decide to stop doubling coupons then I probably wont shop there at all.

    • ireneY

      Kroger is taking a calculated risk by eliminating doubles. They obviously discourage coupon usage and think it’s a small number of people they’d rather not have as customers. As is, I am only there occasionally when there’s a “big” sale. Publix is courting the coupon shoppers with their new digital coupons and huge ads in their flyer boasting about being coupon friendly. It’s a no-brainer! :)

      • B

        I agree I normally would not shop at publix because they honestly are bad about their mark-up on their items. I like to look at prices when I’m thinking about getting something at walmart which is not close by so ill go to target or publix etc… publix marks up their prices sometimes $2 more than other stores… But they are so friendly there and for the most part I don’t get a lot of issues using my coupons there so i really hope they don’t stop doubling…

    • Jamie

      I am so disappointed and will try very hard to not give them ANY of my business starting May 12th!! There are no other stores around my area (Roanoke, VA) that double coupons and this just makes me sick…

      • sjgsjg

        im in Roanoke too. shopping in this area is going to be tough!

      • Leslie

        Same thing here for us. We live out at SML and there isn’t another store to choose from. This is going to be tough.

    • David Ballinger

      Lame. I honestly have not seen a sale worth driving to Kroger even when I lived close to one. It does not affect me now, but I worry that others in the grocery game will follow them. Hopefully not, but Kroger is not the first to tighten their belts over coupon users.

    • sharon

      Luckily we have Rempke Biggs that still doubles and their gas rewards are more realistic than Krogers. With Kroger giving a 35 gallon limit, how many people actually maximize that? I feel cheated by only being able to fill up to 20 gallons (especially if I’ve got a $1 off each gallon; that’s $15 I’m missing out on!) With Rempke Biggs, it’s 20 gallon fill up and there are Speedway stations all over the place to pick from, rather than being limited with Krogers. I only go to Krogers now for really great deals; Rempke Biggs is my main store now.

    • Mark

      I will now only have reason to shop at Kroger once a week, on Tuesday for the senior 5% discount. For couponing, I’ll be switching to Martins. They only double one like coupon but at least they make coupons from .51 to .99 a full dollar. Sad because I was just think how nice it would be if my Kroger started doubling up to a dollar and then I read they are cutting it out altogether!

    • Sarah

      My Walmart will price match instant savings deals – the price after savings is printed in the ad, and it’s considered a “card member price” which WM’s price match policy specifically says they will honor. It certainly can’t hurt to ask.

      I very rarely will stop for a deal in Kroger – mainly because of their asinine no more than 3 Internet coupons per person per day. How they track that, I don’t know – it’s NOT tied to your card. But it’s a hassle to go in and out of the store – and when you’re trying to get free milk by buying 4 cereals, it’s definitely a pain.

    • Ashley

      I just moved from the Savannah, GA area to the Richmond, VA area and took solace in knowing I could shop at Kroger because there are no real other grocery stores where I could score great deals. Now they’re ending the double coupons in the Richmond, VA area?! Definitely not pleased. That was the main reason I shopped at Kroger.

    • Mihcelle

      My coupons AND my money will work at Martins.

    • Lisa

      I’m praying it doesn’t hit the Louisville region. I live in Lexington, KY and we only have Meijer, Kroger and WalMart. Meijer may be ending doubling and our Walmart is NOT coupon/PM friendly. At all.

    • missriza

      I just started shopping at Kroger because the manager mentioned that they would be getting a fuel station. Unfortunately, with this news, I will go back to only shopping at Harris Teeter and Lowes Foods (Lowes also does gas rewards).

    • I hated that I never got their mailings, called them and asked why and was told I have to spend money to get them, but I won’t shop there without them therefore I never could get them. So I hit up Publix and Food Lion instead where I can sign up for their mailings before spending a dime in the store.

    • B

      I was in an atlanta metro kroger today and my 50¢ coupon would not double but no one including the manager could figure out why. They gave me the double manually as I was only using a few coupons this trip but now this makes me wonder about this policy already being in effect in georgia! I play buy the rules and I think they are going to loose some serious customers.

    • SaraJ

      Coupons are rarely the bulk of my savings when they are tallied at the bottom of receipts so I don’t have a strong feeling about it. As long as there are good sales and good store brand prices on the staples I want to buy regularly Kroger is still somewhere I’d scope out for shopping. Of course who knows for sure if they’ll win out once we get to actually compare with the new supposedly lower prices.

    • Jean in TN

      Frankly I am finding fewer and fewer coupons that will double anyway… seems like most manufacturers are going to 2 items for $1 off or .55 off 1 item to discourage doubling. If Kroger keeps offering mega deals, digital coupons (some of which are better than doubled coupons), sending me coupons in the mail (some for free items), and offering gas points (my husband filled up last week at .70/off a gallon), Kroger will remain in my mix of stores I regularly go to. There are more perks for me at Kroger than doubled coupons.

      • wolf_dexter

        I have to agree. My Kroger is in the Mid-Atlantic region too. I kept track of all my coupon savings in 2012 and doubling at Kroger saved me $235. Doubling accounted for 6% of my savings at Krogers last year. In Martinsville, VA, we will not have ANY stores doubling coupons after 5/12 so I will more than likely continue w/ shopping at Kroger but will be traveling to WM more often to price match.

    • JULIE

      HYI will not shop at Kroger at all. I have Harris Teeter as my main store (even better than Lowes most of the time). Coupons are changing too – many say “do not double” or off $1.00 of 3 items instead of 1 or 2 – I think this is based solely on the economy with no end in sight to the Gov. overspending and policies…things cannot get better if the Country doesn’t control spending and it is not even close to changing. So coupons are essential…but they will become less and less valuable as well.

    • Allison

      I’m in one of the regions that still doubles (Knoxville, TN) but now I’m wondering if they’re going to change our policy too in the not so distant future. I hope not; the only other grocery store within 7-8 miles of me is Food City. On the bright side, Publix is moving into the area, but I think the closest one right now is about 20 miles away.

    • seanmart

      Kroger in my area of ATL is pretty lame with the coupons anyway. I will shop there if there are decent savings w/ my coupons or if they have a 10/$10 sale because their store brand is pretty good. I also go there for my gas because even if you don’t have fuel points enough to save .10 or more off a gallon, they always give you .03 off anyway and they are convenient to my home. I think I would shop even less if they stop the double coupons. In my area, I have Publix, and a Walmart that price matches. I usually have the Sunday paper flyer for Kroger, so I would shop elsewhere.

    • guest

      JC Penney had a long history of sales and flash deals whose popularity made them the dept store equivalent of Harris Teeter or whomever is your favorite grocer for couponing purposes. They got a new CEO who stopped that and went to a similar low price all the time concept. That lasted about a yr; sales plummeted. That CEO was ousted, old one is back in. Although that’s retail and this is groceries, it’s a suggestion that Wall Street knows our country’s shoppers are still deal-sensitive. The same force may cause Kroger to fall back in line with others until things improve.

    • SmoochTheCook

      Is this to mean that it’s not the surrounding Kroger stores that will be affected? I’m right in between Charleston and Huntington, WV and when I read that mid atlantic wasn’t going to double anymore, I just assumed it meant all of the ones around here.
      At any rate, I’ve been scooting more towards being a WM shopper lately, because price matching really does save a LOT. I price match the save a lot and Aldi ads every week.

      • Angela Lanning

        This will include every store in the Mid Atlantic region for Kroger. All stores in WV are included in that region. I will continue to shop at Kroger because I refuse to shop at Walmart. The friendly employees, short lines that move quickly & the fuel rewards at Krogers will always trump Walmart – the store where happiness goes to die!

    • kathy hodges

      I go to Krogers only once or twice a month BECAUSE they Double Coupon in the Louisville, Ky area. If they stop, I probably wont have ANY reason to continue to shop there as WM will price match. Kroger will be hurtingthier business by doing this and all of us need to write to them and let them know what we as shoppers like about double coupoons.

    • aleshamom4

      Oh this bombs, as we don’t have any of these other stores you state except WallyWorld & they are so NOT FRIENDLY. Just love how these companies love to screw the consumers who keep them in business..sorry it just gets so frustrating :(

    • There is one more reason to shop at Kroger occasionally. They usually have some really good deals on marked down items in the produce department. Otherwise, HT here we come.

    • Leea

      My store -Johnson City, Tn- is not in the list of stores to stop doubling, but they have all the new lower prices stuff up everywhere. Very strange.

      • I just called Kroger in Bristol, VA, and they confirmed they will be ending doubling coupons on May 12. :(

    • Michelle S.

      Good bye to double coupons in my area. There will be only a small local owned store left that doubles and since the prices are sky high already it is just not worth it. I will be rethinking my couponing strategies.

    • marykate

      well, kroger is going to be losing my business

    • Joanna <

      Will stores be affected that are in the mid-Atlantic region but aren’t in the cities listed? Jenny, you are fabulous!! :-)

      • Kristina

        Check your Kroger receipts. Mine says at the bottom that “Effective May 12, manufacturer coupons will be redeemed at face value.” We are in Lynchburg, VA

        • David

          Yup, EVERY store in the mid-atlantic is affected.

          I am also in lynchburg and the store manager confirmed its everyone.

    • Melissa

      Kroger will be losing my business as well…The Lowes Foods in my area is a little farther than I like driving, but with being able to carpool with my mom and sister, it will be much worth the trip! Bye Bye Kroger!

    • angie

      In order to price match at Walmart, do you have to check out at the service desk or just a regular checkout lane? Are the cashiers familiar with how it works?

      • I have never had a bad experience, ever, with price matching at Walmart. I always have the sales ads with me and I just let them know right before they ring up each item. They also have a copy of the sales ads at the registers. You check out at the regular registers. Hope it goes as well for you! :)

        • savingmore1

          I do my shopping at Wal Mart I think Wal mart is the best thing that has happen to shopper >(yes I have worked for them several time during the past 20 yrs) I still love the store and what it stay for .I will shop WM over any store unless I have the q and get good deal most part Wm and HT

      • Skirnir Hamilton

        Regular cashier. Sometimes they have trouble with bogo sales, and only do those if they list the sale price in the ad.

    • Pam

      How can I find our which region my Kroger store is in?

      • Kayla Starrett

        Just google ‘Kroger regions’ and click on the first link that pops up. I am going to try to post the link but I don’t think the comment feature likes URL links, but we’ll see!

      • kristin

        Pam, if you post the city, I bet someone here can tell you. :)

    • Ann

      I am in the Atlanta region and a fairly strong Kroger customer. However, if they drop the coupon doubling, I’ll bet my trips will dwindle close to zero. Too bad. My Kroger is really nice. But, my best savings have always been at Publix, so it really won’t be that much of a hardship. Oh well, their loss.

    • dtcox1

      went and picked up some p and g items today saved 59 percent new signs everywhere . everybody wearing new blue shirts ..they checked my tickets to make sure it doubled it did ,,,,, for now …….it is suppose to stop may 12 . also got 3.00 back catl for buying p and g

    • Ksaid

      I live in Charlottesville, VA, and it was on the news last night. Since the Kroger stores here already have terrible customer service, it will be an easy decision to stop shopping there now that there is no coupon doubling. There is a Harris Teeter in the same shopping center . . . no brainer!
      And thank you, Jenny, for all that you do! You save my family so much money every week! I cannot thank you enough!!!

      • sarar610

        I live in Cville, too! I love the Harris in Hollymeade! HT can sometimes be more pricey but good deals can still be found, the stores are much nicer, and the employees have always been awesome to me. Kroger just isn’t worth it if they aren’t doubling.

    • dtcox1

      i n galax v.a your ticketat the bottom says ends may 12

    • Ramona West

      My Kroger is closing in Farmville, VA and I haven’t been in awhile because they are letting everything run down. Haven’t missed it a bit. I have also found that shopping in drugs stores for what items that you can is a great way to get the best deals. I get 20% off milk in RA. When they run cereal deals…I rack up. It helps.

    • Kayla Starrett

      I live in Louisville, KY and I’m really nervous because the only ‘real’ grocery store we have here is Kroger – no Publix, Harris Teeter, Bi-Lo, etc. I would absolutely love it if by some miracle we could get a Publix here, but I highly doubt that will ever happen. It definitely has me stopping and thinking about what my family’s plan will be if this continues into our region and the other three.

      • Melindakozo

        I live in Louisville, KY too and I agree with you: Kroger is the only ‘real’ grocery store. Moving from Columbia SC three years ago I missed Publix so much that I wrote them and asked if they would plan to come in the Louisville area. Unfortunetely our area is not in their plans :-(.

        • Kayla Starrett

          Publix is such an awesome store. I enjoy shopping there when my family goes to Florida for our vacation. I would love to just be able to pick it up and move it back home with me haha! I thought a little bit after writing my original comment and totally forgot about Meijer’s, but they only double the first 2 similar coupons (anything after that is not doubled). Multiple transactions it is at Meijer’s if doubling coupons at Kroger ceases in our area!

    • Chandra

      A deal breaker for me. I drive out of my way to go to Kroger, Walmart is just down the street. I will price match and use my coupons at Walmart.

    • Karen

      I think it really stinks. I’ve been saving a ton of money at my Kroger. My answer to the new low prices….it’s a gimmick to let us think we are getting some great deal but in a year or two they will have the same prices as all the other supermarkets. It makes me mad!

      • zeb

        It wont even take a year for the prices to go up. It will be a matter of a few weeks.

    • Jennifer

      Just heard the terrible news. Not sure what I am going to do. Do not have a publix here in richmond, va. I really do not like Walmart. We only other store I like is martins and they only double one like coupon. Well any suggestions I would appreciate.

      • Terry

        I am in Richmond too. I feel lost. :) I don’t know where to shop now!

        • Lauren

          I’m in Richmond as well. My Kroger (Bellgrade) has been going down hill lately (typically out of several items I go in to purchase – not just sale items – one week they had no carrots!) & now with no doubling I’ll just shop elsewhere. Just not worth the hassle. Costco will probably get the bulk of my business & Sams/Walmart (as much as I dislike Walmart) will probably end up with the rest. There just aren’t any real good options left.

    • kathy

      I find shopping at Kroger to be such a frustrating experience anyway. When you have to buy 10 to get their discount, keeping track of the items and numbers that qualify, it is ridiculous! I will shop at Publix where they actually care about their customers and bend over backwards to make you happy. If you make a special request at Kroger they look at you like you have 2 heads.

    • If the delta area is next I am out of luck. Kroger is the only place in town that doubles except for freds on a double on Saturdays

      • jerry

        If there is a Harps in your area, they double. I too am in the delta area,but I will make my point by moving my prescriptions as well as shop elsewhere. I already by my meat at Harps. So much better and cheaper.

    • kristin

      SO disappointed in Kroger. They closed the store nearest to me, so I’ve been driving across town just for the double coupons. The only other grocery store in our area is Food Lion, which is crazy expensive. So I get to either suck it up and continue driving to Kroger to save less, or go to Walmart, which I despise. *sigh* WHY can’t we have a Lowe’s, Harris Teeter, or Publix?!

    • zeb

      Walmart has always price matched instant savings deals for me. I have gone when I only want one or two instead of 4, 5 or 10 of the items.

    • savingmore1

      I stopped shopping at Korger 5 yr ago when we moved here to Cary The store is smelly and the people who at the 2 I could go to are rude So rudeI stopped for that reason I can save more at HT and FL we have a new Walmart groc, coming in I think this move will hurt them UNLESS they really lower the price which I do not think they will.

    • CB

      They stopped doubling coupons at my Kroger March 1. They said the same thing about lowering prices but I have seen several items go up in price and haven’t really noticed any thing come down in price.

    • jerry

      Just like JC penney is finally realizing they made a mistake in doing away with their coupons and now are coming back with coupons,Kroger also will see they mad a mistake if all couponers do what they should do which is to not shop there. This will be the only way Kroger sees that they made a mistake. I do not have the leisure of a HT,Publix, or Lowes since in my area there is basically Walmart and Kroger’s along with a few mom and pop grocery stores. The moment Kroger quits doubling coupons I too will show them that I will not shop there. So we will see.

      • sjgsjg

        ha I thought the same thing when I heard the latest JCP commercial.

    • April Stroud Roberts

      That would be so sad. I love shopping at Kroger on MegaEvents. They are a fun challenge and a killer deal. I love my Publix, but Kroger fills in the gaps that Publix doesn’t.

    • Sue

      Does anyone know which region Ashland, KY is in? We’re just over the river from WV. I’m hoping we fall into the Louisville region right now. Walmart is really the only other alternative and I really don’t consider that to be an alternative.

      • Sonja Renee’ Ahuja

        Ashland is in the Mid-Atlantic region, so maybe we need to cross the river to Wheelersburg, which is in the Columbus region!

    • Jennifer

      Yes, I will be doing more Walmart shopping. If coupons do not double, I will take all my adds to Walmart! Walmart doesn’t double anyways and it would be the same difference.

    • Jennifer

      Yes, I will be doing more Walmart shopping. If coupons do not double, I will take all my adds to Walmart! Walmart doesn’t double anyways and it would be the same difference.

    • Ginger

      Yes no more Kiroger if Mid-South ends, which is sad. I prefer Kroger, but can’t afford to shop without coupons.

    • Sally

      from Roanoke VA: They are kicking themselves in to patootie. Kroger prices went really high over the past few months so I started going to Food Lion, Super Dollar, Dollar General, Dollar Tree, Family Dollar stores for bargains and cheap off brands. Even though those do not double, I was still saving $$. Where it hurt me was with the points for gas discount. Watch out, that will be gone next and yeah, the prices in the store will go up again.

    • Cindy

      I don’t like Kroger. Their service is horrible. They have long lines. When you talk with a manager they look at you like they have better things to do. They think marking down old hamburger meat from 4.49/lb to 3.79/lb is so great, when you can go to Aldi’s and get it for 2.79/lb. The prices are getting so high that it is impossible to shop there without coupons on someone with an okay income. I see very few people at my Kroger that do not coupon. I get more deals when I go to Harris Teeter or other stores. Publix, Save-A-Lot, Aldi’s and Harris Teeter are becoming big in our area, but there are more smaller grocers starting up and are rivals to all of them. I try to avoid Kroger as much as I can. I will not worry about the gas because I find that the gas is used quicker when I fill up there rather than Mapco/Delta or Circle K. When I use those pumps my take stays fuller longer. Hmm. Difference in amount of ethanol I believe.

    • joyceannmama

      My Kroger here in Clarksburg WV is stopping doubling 50 cents starting May 12 too…

      We are getting a Shop N Save that doubles up to 99 cents…

      Opening up at the end of May.

      Krogers will be losing my $$$$….

      Anyway I had a 50 cents off coupon for tyson chicken nuggets/patties and they would not take it.

      Had Family Dollar on it BUT SAID MANUFACTURE COUPON ON IT.

      I asked another employee and anothter manager just gave me face value. I had purchased 2 packages of tyson gave me a dollar back.

      I was so mad….I am trying to save $$$$ I have 3 kids to feed….

    • Beth

      My store in Lynchburg will stop doubling, too. Goodbye, Kroger! I only shopped there if I could double bc their base prices are so out of line compared to food lion and Walmart. Customer service is awful.

    • Teresa

      This is Roanoke Kroger’s last week. Yes, they will lose a lot of my business. Hello, Walmart again after a couple of years.

      I have shopped @ Kroger for a long time but have got discusted the past little while. I do like there produce better than other places so will continue to shop there for that, but will probably get more of my grocerys @ Walmart which I don’t care for. Here in Roanoke we don’t have a lot of options & NO other place that doubles. I will definitely be checking prices more closely. Also have noticed prices going up or staying the same but pkg getting smaller:(

      Just found out Kroger is ALSO taking away the 5% university preferred employer discount. Are they trying to loser customers?
