Coupon Tips

Wednesday, June 19, 2013

Hold on to manufacturer’s coupons until a store puts the merchandise to offer Buy-One-Get-One-Free offer.

Buy-One-Get-One-Free, you technically only use one coupon because the store has the sale for Buy-One-Get-One-Free, so you get one free buy purchasing one product, but since you’re using a manufacturers coupon for the item being purchased, you get both free.

Don’t throw away expired coupons because many stores will accept them within a certain timeframe of the expiration date.

For expired coupons check with your local store’s coupon policy because some store’s allow you to use expired coupons within 30 days of the expiration date.

Military serving overseas can use expired coupons up to six months past their expiration date.

Don’t worry if your store is out of stock of a sale item, ask for a raincheck so that you can get the product at the sale price at a later time.

You can still use coupons on products that you get with a raincheck!

Everything goes on sale every 6 months and that’s when a couponer buys it at rock bottom pricing so you don’t have to buy it again for half a year.

Plan your meals and what you use in your house around what you have in your stock piles.

10 for $10
Don’t be tricked by the numbers game. Just because it says 10 for $10 doesn’t mean you have to buy all 10 to get the discount. Just check the fine print. Grocers know you’ll fall for the marketing in the sale and buy all 10.

Know that the most expensive items are located at eye level. Discounts are usually on the bottom shelf.

Buy generic! It saves you money. Most generics contain the same ingredients as the name brand products, they are just cheaper.

Stay away from end cap sales. It is what the store wants you to buy, but it doesn’t mean that its a good sale.

Go to grocery store and brand’s social media pages and like them. They will often alert you of sales and discounts.
