I already pretty much knew this, but my mother also verified it (at none other than a Weight Watcher meeting). My mother is kind enough to mail me her coupons. The cool thing about this is not only do I get a double stash of coupons, but her coupons are MUCH BETTER! Why? I don't know - all I know is that NY and Lower Fairfield County have the same coupons as us other New Englanders - but the values are different.
Breyers - I just got a $1/2 MFC. My mother's version was a .60/1 Doubles! - ($1.20 off 1 vs. .50 off 1.)
Ragu - I get $1/3 MFCs. My mother gets .30/1 -Doubles! (.60 off 1 vs .33 off 1)
Skippy - I get $1/2 MFCs. My mother gets .40/1 - Doubles! (.80 off 1 vs .50 off 1)
Klondike Bars - i get $1/2, My mother gets .75/1 - Doubles! ($1.50 off 1 vs .50 off 1)
Why does this happen? Again, I do not know! (Are there any coupon people out there who know??) I do know that they don't double coupons in NY. Maybe that's why? Well if you can get your hands on these coupons, they are much more valuable up here. I believe stores DO double under $1 in all of CT - so if you are in Fairfield County and get these coupons - you score big. My mother is saying that actual NY paper coupons are even better than her Fairfield County coupons so she's going to score me a NY paper - I'll see if they are even better!
I haven't seen Deal Finding Mom and Wicked Cool Deals post these coupons - and they are both in the central/northern part of CT - so I'm assuming they get the same coupons as us Massachusetts people.
