King Soopers to halt double coupons on Aug. 23

DENVER — King Soopers announced Wednesday that it will stop double coupons as of Aug. 23.

“In an effort to modernize the company’s coupon policies, King Soopers has been investing additional resources into its digital coupons and promotions,” King Soopers director of public affairs Kelli McGannon said in a statement.

King Soopers said “only a small percentage” of shoppers use double coupons.

“King Soopers customers have access to hundreds of digital coupons everyday which can be downloaded instantly, even as they shop,” the grocer said.

King Soopers has 149 stores in the state.

“King Soopers will continue to invest in lower prices,” McGannon said. “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.”
