Many people use coupons each week when grocery shopping, although probably not to the degree of the shoppers profiled on TLC's new series, Extreme Couponing.
Whether you dabble in coupons or use them religiously, you will find the summaries of the coupon policies at local grocery stores helpful.
1. (271 Jericho Turnpike, Syosset)
King Kullen will double all manufacturer coupons up to and including $0.99. The first five $1 coupons per customer will be doubled (the remaining $1 coupons will be counted at face value). No substitutions are allowed and coupons may not be greater than the price of the item. King Kullen will also accept coupons printed from the Internet, other than those for “free” product and does not accept competitor coupons.
2. Shop Rite (444 Woodbury Road or 1054 Old Country Road Plainview)
Shop Rite will double manufacturer coupons up to and including $0.99 and accepts coupons printed from the Internet. Register for free for the Shop Rite Price Plus Card and receive exclusive discounts on many products each week.
3. Whole Foods (429 North Broadway, Jericho)
Whole Foods will accept manufacturer’s coupons as well as coupons printed from the Internet. Because they stock many private label and exclusive products, it can be difficult to find coupons to use. If you visit their website, check the upper right hand corner and click on the menu item “Coupons” to select store specific coupons you wish to print and use when you shop.
4. Waldbaums (336 North Broadway, Jericho)
Waldbaums no longer doubles coupons but does accept coupons printed from the Internet.
5. Target (358 Broadway Mall, Hicksville)
Target will accept manufacturer coupons as well as coupons issued by Target. One Target coupon and one manufacturer coupon can be used for the same item, unless noted on the coupon. Coupons may not be greater than the price of the item and Target does not accept competitor coupons.
