Double Coupons in Washington

Wednesday, January 24, 2007
It may seem silly for someone like me, but I clip coupons. Why not? It doesn't take very long and I might as well save money on things I would buy anyway. I didn't always clip coupons, I used to be embarrassed that people would think I was poor or something. Ironically, it's when I started actually having money, and stopped caring what people thought, that I got over it and started clipping and using coupons.

I don't quite understand this, but nowhere in Washington state can you find a store that has double coupons. It confuses me because everywhere in California has it, but nowhere in the state of Washington can you find a place that doubles coupons. I've even looked online to see if it was just the Seattle area, but it seems pretty clear that nowhere in the state of Washington does this. I really wish I could find out why. Double coupons can be a great thing, you can actually end up with some items for free. But alas, its just not possible here in Washington.

If anyone finds a store in Washington that doubles coupons, please leave a comment.

I moved to the Tacoma, WA area from Portland, Oregon and it looks like Safeway and Alberton's in Oregon double coupons. So why wouldn't it be the same in Washington for the same store?

yeah, I really can't figure out why nowhere in Washington will double coupons.

I asked a manager at Safeway one day and they told me it was against Washington State Law

Thanks Holly, this is very useful.

I grew up in Portland and remember the store flyers for Safeway, Thriftway, etc., always having about four double coupons in their flyers. The only stores in Washington that will do double coupons are in Vancouver, so they can compete with the stores across the river in Portland..:)

The word is there will be Double coupons in the S
Sunday newspaper from Albertsons. They will only let you use 3 at a time. It still real nice.
