Doubling Coupons

Doubling Coupons:

At Tops they double the value of manufacturers’ paper coupons every day (up to the value of $0.99 coupons – $1.00 or higher coupons will not double) when you use your TOPS BonusPlus. For Example: If you have a coupon for $0.75 off it will double to $1.50 off that item.

They allow you to use 4 like coupons that double at a time. What this means is if you have 5 coupons that need to double, for example $0.75/1 crackers coupon, you will only have the first 4 coupons double (to $1.50 off). The 5th coupon would scan as face value of $0.75 off. In order to maximize your savings sometimes it is better to split your orders up to make sure all of your coupons will double. Also be aware of gas points deals and instant savings deals.

Catalina Offers

Catalinas are coupon offers that print from those machines next to the registers. You can get Tops Store Coupons from them, Manufacturers Coupons, and even Money off Your Next Order Offers! Read More here about telling the difference between them.

Types of Coupons

Manufacturer’s Coupons

Coupons that the Manufacturer’s send out for their own products. Every Manufacturer’s coupon has a Redemption Address on it for the store to send the coupon in to get reimbursed.

Store Coupons – 
Some stores have their own coupons they give out. They will state that they are store coupons. Often these can be combined with Manufacturer’s coupons for Extra Savings! Tops does have Store Coupons that you can stack with manufacturers coupons. You can sometimes find them in the Sunday Papers, in store, printed from the catalina machine, or online.

Tops often has catalinas that print out of the machine. These are manufacturers coupons supposed to only be used at Tops. These Cannot be combined with other manufacturers coupons.
If you get a store coupon, or in ad coupon, these can be used with manufacturers coupons for extra savings if available (this is called stacking).

Tops E-Bonus Saver Coupons

These are Tops Coupons that can be stacked with manufacturers coupons. The E-Bonus Saver coupons can be found here.

These coupons will not double. They are one time use coupons.

Tops Click-to-Card Coupons

These are Manufacturers Coupons that can not be stacked. The Click-to-Card Coupons can be found here.

These coupons will not double. They are one time use coupons.

As Stated in their Coupon Policy:

“TOPS can not accept a manufacturer’s paper coupon and a Click-to-Card coupon on the same item.”

As Stated in their FAQS Section:

          Can I use a Click-to-Card Coupon and a Paper Coupon on the Same                     Item?

          There is a limit of one coupon per item purchased; you may use a paper               coupon OR a Click-to-Card coupon, but not both on the same item.

Gas Points Program

A BIG Way to Save at Tops is with Gas! That’s right, you can save on your gas purchases just from shopping at Tops! It is pretty easy to earn the points to save. Tops runs promotional periods where you can earn these Gas Points. Not every day can you earn, so be aware whether or not your store is running a Gas Points promotional offer. They will let you know when the earning period is over, and when the day is to use up those rewards. Not all stores have Gas Stations, but you can still earn points. Not all Tops may participate in the Bonus Offers given during the promotions if they do not have a gas station, so you may want to ask yours to be sure. Some lucky people have Tops that are “double dip” stores. You may find Catalina Offers, like Save $3 Instantly, or get back $3.00 promotions in conjunction with a bonus gas points promotion.

How Does Gas Points Work?

You get 1 gas point for every dollar spent.
You get 10 Bonus Gas Points per Coupon Redeemed.
Limit of 100 Bonus Gas Coupon Points per transaction. (you can use as many coupons as you want per transaction, but only the first 10 will give you the bonus gas points, so if you want to maximize your gas points you need to do separate orders with 10 manufacturers coupons each.)
There are also special gas points promos every week. You can find them located in the ad.

*Please note that your store may limit you to one transaction PER DAY, as according to their policy:

“Where available, TOPS GasPoints® earned on the redemption of manufacturers’ paper coupons limited to 10 coupons/100 TOPS GasPoints® per household, per day. TOPS GasPoints® offer excluded from TOPS store coupons, Super Coupons and Click-to-Card coupons. Offer applicable during TOPS GasPoints® earning time periods. See for details.”

Many Tops will allow multiple transactions. Just remember to be polite to others shopping if there is one lane open, letting others go in between may make your store more likely to allow multiple transactions. Also Tops store coupons and catalinas (unless they are manufacturers, will not count towards gas points).


Tops occasionally runs what they call a Dollar Doubler promotion.

Dollar Doublers?? What does this mean?

You can pair only FOUR dollar doublers from the Tops weekly ad with Four Manufacturer coupons valued at $1.00 each in each order. You must purchase at least $20!! (supposed to be before coupons, unless you get a hard cashier, not fun! after sales and tops coupons). The coupons can not exceed the price of item bought (no overage given).


Do you enjoy Playing Monopoly?!

What is Monopoly?

Monopoly is just like the game that McDonald’s has been doing for years. You get special board pieces you can enter. If you get all the pieces for a certain prize then you win that prize! And along the way they offer great coupons (okay, $0.25, $0.50 and if lucky $1.00 coupons for various products) sometimes even FREE product coupons!


Did you know for your Child’s FIRST Birthday, Tops will give you a Coupon for a FREE Cake?!!
