Couponing is definitely a science. There are many tricks to learn. Let’s get started, shall we?
- Match coupons with sales, catalinas, and rebates to get the best possible deal.
- Use coupons on the smallest size allowed (even travel sizes) to get the best deal and/or FREE items.
- Pair BOGO coupons with a store’s BOGO sale, and get both items FREE! (just remember to pay your sales tax)
- Use 2 coupon on a store’s BOGO sale, you are still “buying” 2 items.
- Stack Store Coupons with Manufacturer coupons! This means that you can use both a store coupon and a manufacturer’s coupon on 1 item. Hand over the store coupon last for possible overage!
- Criss Cross your coupons into a messy stack before checking out. This help with coupons sticking together. When all coupons are scanned at checkout you’ll save so much more.
