Are eCoupons considered manufacturer coupons? Can they be doubled?
eCoupons are in fact considered manufacturer coupons. To answer your question specifically, NO, they do not double. So with that, the real value only comes into play if you happen to need another coupon for a product.
I have previously shared ways to manage Kroger's eCoupon policy change. The reason I wrote that post was because eCoupons are often confusing for people. Since Kroger affiliate stores does not allow using an eCoupon with a manufacturer's coupon, it's even more important to remember which eCoupons you have loaded to your store loyalty card.
The register actually reduces the eCoupon value and if you have a paper coupon to use, forgetting that you had an eCoupon attached to your card, the register will reject your paper coupon. Since the paper coupon doubles and the eCoupon does not, that may mean that deal wasn't really worth it. This may not be all stores that have eCoupons, but this applicable for the majority that do.
Do you use eCoupons a lot? Have you had redemption issues at the register?
