These are the abbreviations I use for the names of the coupon inserts: SS-Smart Source, RP-Red Plum, PG-Procter & Gamble, GM- General Mills.

When you are printing a coupon online, you can usually print the coupon then use your browser’s back button to print it a second time.  Two is usually the maximum number allowed per computer, but if you have a second computer you can print more.

These deals are for Kroger Southwest (including Texas).   The following is the policy (as I understand it) at the store I visit most often.  Kroger triples coupons up to and including $.39 (i.e. a $.30 coupon will take a total of $.90 off) and doubles coupons up to and including $.50 (i.e. a $.50 coupon will take a total of $1.00 off).  Be sure to ask your store about their coupon policy.  The stores I visit will allow unlimited double coupons per transaction, but will only allow 3 tripled coupons per purchase.  In addition, they only allow up to 3 of the exact same coupon per transaction.  However, they have always allowed me to make multiple purchases in a visit so that I can use all the coupons that I have.

Albertsons will triple coupons up to and including $.39 (i.e. a $.30 coupon is worth $.90) and double coupons from $.40-50 (i.e. a $.50 coupon is worth $1.00).  Be sure to ask your store about any restrictions they may have on their coupon policy.  Albertsons often has sales that are 10 items for $10 (or 5 for $10, 4 for $10, etc.).  Most stores do not require you to buy 10 of the specified item, so I list the item at the individual price ($1.00, $2.00, $2.50, etc.).  Check with your store to see how they handle 10 for $10 sales.
