Default Kroger to stop doubling and tripling coupons eff Apr 13

saw this on the ch 26 morning news, and its also a big writeup in the chron about this.....Kroger claims that when they double or triple a coupon, they only get paid face value from the manufacturer and eat the rest of the cost...hmmm, thats suprising, but considering the number of people who dont even use coupons, they are probably breaking even

that will leave Randalls(Gulp!) as the only grocery chain in Houston that will triple coupons up to .39 and double up to .50, but randalls is more expensive than either Kroger or HEB.....but, Randalls has had some good store coupons and if you stack them, you can save pretty good.

Walmart has a coupon policy in place that will give you full value for a coupon even if it is more than the item....if you have a $3.00 coupon, but your item is only $1.50, the other 1.50 will be taken off of your balance.....

here is the link from the chronicle....your thoughts?

I stopped going to Krogers years ago.
I never took advantage of the double and triple coupons anyway.
At the time, I only went because it was the closest store around.
I do all my shopping (or I should say my wife does all the grocery shopping) at HEB.
I like the fact that I don't have to carry a stupid card around to save some money.
