King Soopers to Stop Doubling Coupons as of August 23

I just received word from King Soopers that they are going to stop doubling coupons as of August 23rd:

Denver, CO. (August 10, 2016) –King Soopers announced today that the practice of doubling the value of coupons will end on August 23, 2016.

“In an effort to modernize the company’s coupon policies, King Soopers 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 hassle of clipping paper coupons,” says Kelli McGannon, Director of Public Affairs for King Soopers.

King Soopers customers have access to hundreds of digital coupons everyday which can be downloaded instantly, even as they shop. King Soopers digital coupons are downloadable at kingsoopers.com and through the grocer’s mobile app available on iPhone and Android devices.

Only a small percentage of King Soopers shoppers use double coupons and customers are responding favorably to the recent increase in the quantity and value of the digital coupons available.

King Soopers customers in the last year have loaded to their SooperCard more than $50 million in digital offers.

Along with the growing digital offers, King Soopers will gladly accept paper coupons at face value and will continue to offer great savings to our customers with everyday low prices, weekly specials, and fuel discounts.

“King Soopers will continue to invest in lower prices,” said McGannon. “Double coupons only apply to a small percentage of the items in our stores. Lower prices throughout the entire store are a better benefit to the vast majority of our customers.”

I know that this is going to be really disappointing to many people! It does seem like it’s been headed this way for awhile, though.

  1. Definitely disappointing. Thanks so much for the heads up!

  2. I believe we should all call the KING SOOPERS customer service # and voice our concerns. I think the biggest argument is that if there are only “a few” of us who do doubling by cutting coupons, then leave us alone. We aren’t going to do both paper and digital so we won’t take double $ from them.

    Also, my food bank will miss my 300+ tubes of toothpaste, etc.

    I am sad beyond words. Shame on King Soopers.

  3. P.S. One thing I will let them know is that we price match the sale items at Walmart every week. However, I have been still going to King Soopers (and Safeway) on the occasion that I had a coupon they would double, since Walmart would not.

  4. Sadly it will change the volume of business couponers bring to them-especially since Safeway still doubles. I have the option of Commissary shopping but prefer King Soopers and found that the double coupons made up for the difference in prices on many items. Now I will have to go back to purchasing more at the Commissary since the value will be better on those items I was planning to purchase using coupons. It really will change my shopping habits as I’m sure it will change others.

    • I’d make sure you let King Soopers know this. I emailed them yesterday letting them know the coupon policy change would mean I wouldn’t shop there like I do now. It’s not as good of a deal for me without the double coupons.

  5. Nooooooooooooo! What’s the best email/phone to give them feedback? Thanks for the heads up. Sadness.

  6. This will REALLY hurt my budget. Please join me in commenting King Soopers via this link: https://www.kingsoopers.com/customercomments
