VG’s Grocery Matchups: February 12-18, 2012

You’ll need to sign up for the VG’s Yes Rewards Program in the store, then register your card online. With the card, you’ll collect points (displayed on the bottom of your receipt) with each purchase that can be redeemed on various items each month. The Yes Card is required to receive advertised sale prices at VG’s.

These matchups are based on prices advertised in Shelby Township and Sterling Heights stores, which double 3 identical coupons up to $0.50.

This post is a proud part of the Grocery Gathering at BeCentsable and the Local Store Deals at Money Saving Mom.


These VG’s stores double coupons to $0.50: Brighton, Fenton, Marine City, North Fenton, Pontiac, Shelby, Sterling Heights & Waterford

As posted in the store and online:

The following guidelines have been established in order to keep our prices low, remain competitive and ensure availability of product for all our customers.

  • Product listed on coupon must be purchased in order for coupon to be redeemed.
  • We will redeem only one coupon per product.
  • Coupon must have a valid expiration date. We are unable to redeem if expiration date has been cut off.
  • We are happy to double coupons up to and including $0.50 cents.
  • There is a limit of 3 like coupons per household/per day, including multiple varieties. We are unable to split orders to assist in exceeding these limits.
  • Coupons that state Do Not Double will be redeemed at face value only.
  • Coupon value, including the amount being doubled, shall not exceed the price the product is sold for.
  • In-store promotional coupons (Catalina) will be generated based on value of product after deduction of Manufacturer/Store coupon(s).
  • We are happy to accept internet printable coupons, however, we are unable to accept photocopies of these coupons.
  • On a buy one get one free offer, we will redeem a coupon for the item being purchased only. We are unable to redeem coupons for the items that are being offered free.


VG’s offers a $0.05 reusable bag credit per bag you bring. You may have to remind your cashier, however, as the credit is not automatic.

You’ll find printable Spartan coupons at the Turn to Spartan website. You’ll need to register first. Coupons will NOT double, but they could stretch your savings on Spartan brands even further.

Save your receipts – as part of VG’s Community Share Program, they can benefit non-profit groups in Michigan. You don’t need to sign up; simply find a participating group and submit your receipts. Trinity Lutheran Church in Utica uses the Community Share Program to purchase socks for the homeless. You can leave your receipts at the front desk there if you can’t find another organization.

Shopping with Kids? Stop by the customer service desk and sign them up for the Zoo Crew Kids’ Club. They’ll receive special treats, including a cookie from the bakery when they visit!

    So it TruMoo, but I still got them :-) I was craving some chocolate milk! Thanks again for posting these great deals every week! I would not be able to save money if it weren’t for you!

    Carrie says

    There is a coupon for 1.00 off 2 arm and hammer laundry products. At vgs they have the 20 count dryer sheets for .99. With the coupon they end up costing .50 each.

      I cannot get them to print, either. I see them but cannot click on them. I searched around the website hoping there would be another way around it but i couldn’t find one. bummer cuz I wanted to try them.

    Pringles stacks are 10/$10. Use $1/4 coupon (can’t remember what pack it’s from) and get them for 50 cents each (if your VG’s doubles). Great stock up price for our family.
    Also, Progresso soups are Buy5 Get5 free. Use the $1/4 coupon and get 10 cans of soup for $1.07 each. Not bad.

    Just a note: The coupon for the Welch’s juice, states that it’s for 100% Grape juice blends which is not on sale:( The advertised juice is for the Welch’s Light or Essentials.

    Good news though, I got 200 bonus Yes points for buying (2) of the Kraft Fresh Takes :)

    Thanks Jolyn!
