Fry's Coupon Policy Changes- no longer doubling in certain AZ Locations

From Fry's:

Dear Friends,

We have some news to share regarding our “All Manufacturer Coupons Worth Up to $1” promotion. As some of you are aware, we will be discontinuing this promotion in our Sierra Vista, Casa Grande, Yuma, and Greater Tucson area stores on September 14. Although some of you already know about this policy change, we wanted to let you know exactly what it will mean for you and invite you to contact us if you have any questions.

We know that doubling coupons is an important part of meeting your grocery budget, and want to assure you that the resources previously used for this promotion will now be invested in new pricing strategies to continue providing the savings that you count on.

What else will Fry’s be doing to provide savings?

■The cost savings from not making coupons up to $1 will be used to lower prices in our stores

■Starting September 14, customers in Sierra Vista, Casa Grande, Yuma and Greater Tucson area stores will receive double fuel points on participating products throughout the store

■Savings from digital coupons will be the same or even greater than paper coupons, which is also made possible by these cost savings

■Generic prescription pricing ($4/30-day supply and $10/90-day supply)

■Fuel rewards

■Monthly 10% senior discount for shoppers who are 55 and older

■10% wine discount – when you buy six or more bottles

■Fry’s customers will continue to receive Loyal Customer Mailings that include coupons tailored directly to the products you buy most

Can we still use coupons at these stores?

■Fry’s will continue to accept manufacturer coupons at face value as well as Catalina, Print-at-Home, and electronic coupons to help maximize your savings

Will you stop doubling coupons at all Fry’s stores?

■At this time, this pilot program will only be held in our Sierra Vista, Casa Grande, Yuma and Greater Tucson area stores

We’d like to thank you again for your support as we continue to build this community. We will be updating our coupon policies to reflect these changes later this week. If you have questions, please feel free to email us at

As always, we welcome your feedback. We truly value your business, and look forward to serving you for many years to come.

In response, I'd just say that Fry's is really stupid for making these changes, as the Q's are the only reason I shop there anyhow.  They are just giving people a reason to go back to Walmart since they ad-match and take Q's at face value.  Besides, other stores still double so everyone will still go somewhere else.  If they mess with the Phx area, I am going to be pretty mad, boycott and scream and shout.  No, seriously....things might get thrown. :)
