Grocery Spring Break

Double Up Michigan Grocery Stores are Going on Spring Break

Double Up Food Bucks Michigan grocery stores are on Spring Break from March 1 – May 31, 2019. During this time, you cannot earn more Double Up Food Bucks at grocery stores, but you can keep spending any Double Up Food Bucks you have already earned to date.
