LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) – Cash-strapped shoppers who depend on cost cutting for their budget may have to find alternatives when using coupons.
The Kroger Company announced Friday that the practice of coupon doubling will be discontinued beginning September 22 in most of their Kentucky and southern Indiana stores.
"In an effort to modernize the company's coupon policies, Kroger has been investing additional resources into its digital coupons and promotions. This change will please the rapidly growing segment of our customers who prefer to shop and save without the trouble of clipping paper coupons," Tim McGurk, public affairs manager for Kroger's Louisville division said.
Kroger says only a small percentage of their shoppers utilize double coupons and they’ve seen favorable response to the quantity of digital coupons readily available.
The grocery chain says their coupons can be downloaded through their website or via mobile apps on iPhone and Android devices.
If you are desperate to save money and like driving, only two Kroger stores in Kentucky will continue to offer double coupons.
Bowling Green and Hopkinsville are operated by the Nashville division.
