Store Brand is not Always the better Deal when you have a Coupon!

Welcome to Moms Saving Money! If you're new here, you may want to follow on Twitter or fan us on Facebook Thank you for visiting!

So you be the judge. Whats a better deal Kroger Rice 30oz. bag for $1.32

OR Mahattama 30oz. bag for $1.79 plus a $.50 coupon that doubles at Kroger making it $.79 for the 30oz bag?

Always make sure to check whats a better deal. Brand names with a coupon typically are cheaper then the store brand.

This is a $.53 savings between brands after coupons and sale. Now if it was reg. price at $2.49 then yes the Kroger brand would be better!

    I heard that all Kroger stores are going to stop doubling coupons. Is this true?

    I try to tell my sister this who whines that her food stamps don’t last her through the month. I used coupons on almost everything I buy. It stretches much further. Either people don’t realize what a savings they can have or they are just too lazy to do it.

  3. Kelly says:

    Since I started using coupons, I now have some things “on stock” I would not normally have. Granted, you cannot get EVERYTHING with coupons, however, it sure does help to have a “stockpile” of things you can get cheap so that you are not having to chose between paying a bill or go buy meat for dinner.

    they are hoping to yes. But Wal-mart is in the works of doubling coupons so I hope my kroger holds on until ourWalmart doubles
