Copps DOUBLE Double Day Trip 5/28/11...72% OFF!

Copps Trip 5/28/11 $41.47...72% OFF!
I managed to get myself up & out of bed to hit Copps DOUBLE-Double Day early, this morning!  It was interesting that the Wednesday ad stated "DOUBLE-Double Day" for 5/28, but the newer ads available in store today simply stated "Double-Day" by today's date.  As I went through the check out, the cashiers saw all my (up to 10 per transaction) manufacturer's coupons doubling, & said "Oh, I guess you can double more than five today!" So, it seems they had been unsure about whether it was a DOUBLE-double.  Glad it was! :-)

For these deals and more available at Copps this week, see my earlier post:  Copps Deals Week of 5/26/11 - 6/1/11!

Total Saved: $108.68 (72% OFF)

*$10 credit card offer is an offer from one of my credit cards for a $10 credit if I start using the card again within a certain period of time.  I used this card again today to get the credit.
**$10 cereal rebate (from prior trips) is a rebate I'm not able to tell you anything about due to the fine print.  I sent in for this rebate this past week & had not counted it in prior trips, so I'm accounting for it here.


  1. I love double double coupon day!!! my total was like 71 and i only paid like 13!

  2. whoa whoa whoa. hold the phone. is it true pick n save and copps take walgreens register rewards?!?!?!?

  3. My Copps will only take a Walgreens register reward type coupon if it specifies a $ off a certain product. They don't accept a $ off your next order RR. Dannelle at Operation $40K has reported using $ off RRs at her Copps on several occasions, however.

  4. What Copps do you guys go to? I called my DeForest Pick n Save and she pretty much said "I'm not sure sorry bye" and I called Copps off of Fish hatchery by my work and he also said he didn't know what a RR was and said it probably won't work. LOL so where do you guys go?

  5. I'd recommend stopping in at your local store's customer service & showing them that the RR states "manufacturer's coupon" when you ask whether they'll accept it. The Copps on the West side of Sun Prairie has told me they don't accept the RRs for $ off your order. However, they will accept the RRs for $ off a certain product.

    I'm guessing there's a lot of variation on this from store to store.
