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


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.

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


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.

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!

  1. 1

    Ada - Lovin Him says

    So surprised the Smart Balance milk isn’t shown as a green “stock-up” price. Isn’t $1 a great price for a half gallon of Smart milk? That’s only $2/gallon and the Smart Milk has a long shelf life.

    Does anyone know where you can buy sweet potato seeds or plants? Please post it, thanks.
