Kroger Bans Stacked Coupons

I posted a couple of months ago about how Kroger had changed its policy that previously allowed you to use a digital coupon (on your Kroger card) at the same time as a paper coupon, now they are taking things a step further.  Kroger has recently announced that they will no longer allow any stacking of manufacturer and store coupons (even if both are paper).  They have changed their software so that the the computers no longer allow more than one coupon for any given item.

Digital coupons are now being processed first (and do not double), so if you have digital coupons loaded on your card you may need to remove them before you head out to shop (if you have paper coupons you'd rather use). However, this article is the first I'd heard (or read) about a change to allowing you to stack two paper coupons (with one being a store and the other a manufacturer coupon).

I've even heard reports that some stores (or the computers within) won't allow you to use a BOGO coupon with a $/1 coupon (basically attaching the BOGO coupon to both items).

 Just yesterday, I received a packet of Kroger store coupons in the mail that I was very excited about stacking with manufacturer coupons.  Now, I'm not so sure I will be able to (unless I take them to Publix).  I'd love to hear your experiences with Kroger since their policies began changing a few months ago.  Have you noticed any changes beyond the earlier noted changes to stacking digital coupons with paper?
