If you are new to couponing, you have probably heard about coupon doubling. Basically, coupon doubling will take the face value of your coupon and double the amount. So if you have $1 off a box of cereal, on coupon doubling days you would get $2 off instead of just $1.
It is important to know you can’t make money from coupon doubling. So if that box of cereal is on sale for $1.75, the product is free, the grocery store won’t give you the leftover $0.25 for buying that cereal!
Coupon doubling will happen automatically at the cash register. You don’t need to worry that the cashier needs to do something for each coupon to double it.
You should also note that some stores only offer coupon doubling up to $1 value. So if you have a 75 cent coupon, it will only discount $1 total. So if you have high-value coupons you plan to double, you might want to double-check the store doubling policy to see if it will cover the full amount or only up to a certain value.
