Those of you that shop at ShopRite have probably noticed that they have new register systems. It seems that some of you are starting to have trouble with the “Do Not Double” manufacturer coupons. Apparently these registers have a nice “Do Not Double” button on them which has caused some managers and cashiers to hit that button at the first sign of a “Do Not Double” coupon.
Last night I made a call to ShopRite customer care and spoke with a very nice young lady. We discussed their double coupon policy and the Do Not Double coupons. She confirmed with me that the information I wrote about in my recent post The Mystery of the Do Not Double Coupon is correct. The doubled part of the coupon is considered a store coupon and they will double it whether or not they get reimbursed by the manufacturer. But, and a big but, it does depend on the store and the policies they choose to put into place. They have the right to change things up and you have the right to shop at a different ShopRite. With that said, you really have to stop by your customer service counter and check with their policies and decide what is important to you. Shopping at that ShopRite and not getting the doubled “Do Not Double” coupons or going to a different ShopRite. I did the General Mills deal today and every coupon was doubled without a blink of an eye. So yes, I am staying put at my ShopRite.
Now on another note. I have been conservative in my posting about Cellfire coupons since ShopRite recently started offering it. I honestly didn’t think it was that great. They were offering you 1 coupon per product per transaction and they were not doubling them. Well, I gave it a run tonight and I am very happy to report that you are able to use them along with your manufacturer coupons. If you are not familiar with Cellfire, they are coupons that are loaded onto your Price Plus card. Once you purchase your item and use your card, the dollar amount is taken off similar to a price plus card. So it’s really a great feature and you will be seeing me using them in match ups more often now.
If you haven’t registered for Cellfire you can do so here.
