ShopRite to Discontinue Double Coupon Policy
Shocking, but not shocking at the same time. If you are or have been a ShopRite customer you have seen first hand the decline in fabulous deals.
The first substantial change took place last year with a policy change that included no more stacking of paper coupons with ShopRite digital coupons. A major change. In fact, it created a huge loss in profit for them (in my opinion). More people shopped at ShopRite due to the double savings effect. I am sure this led to the next big change.
All Capital District ShopRite stores will no longer be supporting in house pharmacies. I don’t about you, but I see the writing on the wall here.
Another MAJOR Change
ShopRite stores in the Capital District of New York have announced that they will be discontinuing their double coupon policy on March 29, 2020. What does this mean? Coupons at check out will no longer have double the savings. What the coupon states as the value is the amount that will be deducted at checkout.
Now be honest; Are you shocked? Did you have a feeling that previous changes would possibly lead to this major one?
Will this affect your current ShopRite store?
As of right now, the changes are for the following stores: Albany, Colonie, Niskayuna, Rensselaer, Slingerlands & also includes the store in Hudson. Signage in stores is being spotted. I have not yet come across any formal emails. I am sure they will follow soon.
Their online policy was last updated on December 11, 2019 and it does state “Double coupon policies vary by store. Check your store for details”.
It is understood that all ShopRite stores operate under a cooperative. Each cooperative is comprised of 50 members who individually own and operate supermarkets under the ShopRite banner. Capital District stores are operated by the cooperative, ShopRite SuperMarkets, Inc.
Now, what I am unsure of, is if this change will affect all stores under ShopRite SuperMarkets, Inc headship. If your store is listed and you are informed of a policy change, please come back and inform us all by leaving a comment.
Coupon Match Ups On Inspiring Savings
If you are a reader and have been using my ShopRite coupon match-ups, I want to thank you so much. I know you understand the amount of time it takes me to go through that enormous ad to find deals that pair well with coupons. It has been a pleasure over the years providing this list for everyone.
Who doesn’t love amazing deals?
With that being said and with the following coupon change, Inspiring Savings (ME, myself and I) have decided it really is not worth the effort anymore. I will discontinue those matchups at the same time ShopRite discontinues the double coupon policy (3/29/2020). I will, however, be posting ShopRite deals that are in my opinion “Top Deals”.
If you are a Price Chopper shopper or will soon be. I will continue to be providing those matchups as well as all those fun unadvertised deals. You can check them all out here.
So you heard my thoughts!!!! I want to hear yours. Surprised? Not Surprised? Will you still be shopping at ShopRite? Do you still shop there? I want to know.
Thank you to Melissa S & Marion for the alert.
