Update VG's Deals Starting 2/1

Some VG's Stores are now doubling coupons up to $1 so I will be following for a few weeks to see if they should be added to my weekly posts. So let me know what you think and your experience shopping their if you go. Here is a list of the stores I know double up to $1
List of stores that double up to $1

West Flint locations
North Fenton

Howell (store closest to me)
2400 W Grand River Ave
Howell , MI 48843

I called to see how many of the same coupon they would double and both people I spoke to said there was not limit. Most stores limit to 2 or 3 coupons per like item

To find the closest store to you go here Store locator then call to see if they will double up to $1.

Bring in your reusable bag for $.05 each. (sometimes you have to remind them how many you used to get credit)

Go here to Register for Spartan Coupons these are store brand coupons and do not double.

  1. Will VG's double up to and "including" $1 coupons? Just wanted to verify. Thanks!

  2. I'm quite excited as I drive a ways to get to "Super Kroger" I'll be testing out the one in Waterford maybe next week and will keep you posted!

  3. Thanks let me know how it goes. VG's is new to me and I am still learning all the ins and outs:)

  4. Do you know if the Unilever catalina is printing now like it should? I shop the Owosso store:) Thanks!

  5. I just did my shopping at VG's this morning and my Unilever Catalina did not print correctly. (Howell store) I got a catalina for 3.00 off my next order and was given $4 cash at the service desk.
    I just want to add, that they would NOT accept 2 coupons on B1G1 (oh well), however they were the nicest cashiers!!!!!!

  6. I am not sure way the Catalina is not printing so best just keep your eye on it and show them their paper to get the $7 back in cash if it does not print.
    Did they take one coupon for the B1G1 or no coupons? One is still better then none I guess:)

  7. I had issues with the catalina as well, but when I questioned it, the head cashier told me it was because I had used coupons. I stated that coupons don't typically have any bearing on a catalina, but they would not do anything for me. So I walked out with a $3 catalina instead of $7 and there was nothing I could do about it. All in all still a pretty good deal.

  8. That is a hard one they should have given you the Catalina for the full $7 since the ad does not state $20 after coupons and to them coupons are cash so you did pay the $20. You purchased and used your coupons to the store that is the same as cash. Plus Unlever puts on the promotion the store is not paying out that money. But sometimes it is not worth the fight.
