I believe many stores will accept a store coupon and a manufacturer's coupon for the same item. I don't know of any place around that does double coupons.

When you say it's not allowed in Hawaii, do you mean it is literally against the law? Or just that stores don't let you do it?

Can't you just go to a store and try yourself?

I don't even bother as most coupons are for food that is garbage to begin with.

No, you cannot do couponing here to such a degree that you can get $200 worth of food and an extra $10 back because of negative total value. Nor can you stack-up so many different coupons to get $200 worth of food for $40. You can combine manufactures coupons with store coupons or in store sales to reduce total cost. It is possible to save 20, 30, maybe even 40 percent if you snag in store deals or use their associated coupon cards/app.

Its not that its illegal, but stores here simply don't do it. Some used to offer double and triple values, but not that I've found anymore. We simply lack the diversity of chains and extensive growing seasons to create the competition between stores to such a degree that they will do things like that to move product.

I've lived in Hawaii (part time) for over ten years. Many stores, such as KTA, print a weekly book of coupons that you can use in their store. I've never tried the coupons that come in the Sunday paper, though. So I'm not sure what Jerlene means when she says coupons are definitely not allowed.

She means couponing not coupons. Itís a way of gaming the system to get bigger saving than the stores or manufactures intended you to get.

I cannot think of a better decision criterion for moving to a new state then couponing.
Couponing far outweighs: taxes, climate, government, real estate prices, etc.

I doubt many states have regulations about couponing, other than to do with taxes or cash back.
I think it's more the fact that the manufacturers are really cracking down on retailers for allowing coupon fraud and abuse. The retailer I work for has been told that we will not be reimbursed for accepting coupons that don't meet the terms stated on the coupons, such as going over the allowed number of coupons in a transaction, using the coupon on the wrong size or the wrong item, using a coupon that is more than the purchase price of the item, etc.
I have also noticed recently that a lot of the newer coupons state that the consumer is allowed to use only one coupon (for a particular item) in a 24 hour period, which stops the yahoos who want to make multiple transactions to get around the 'coupons per transaction' limit.
And for the love of pete, don't bring a coupon binder to the store with you unless you enjoy the dread you inspire in the checkout area. Nothing worse than a couponer stalling the line while they dig around the binder looking for the all coupons they should have had in their hand before they got to the checkout lane.
