How to Take Advantage of Coupon Match Ups and Coupon Stacking

Dole fruit cups are on sale 3/$5 at Walgreens this week. I have a coupon for $2 off 6 packages. If I buy 6/$10 and use the $2 coupon, I will get these for $8. The Dole Fruit Cups will then cost only $1.33 a package which is good considering they are usually $2 regular price. This is a good time to stock up on these and use several of these coupons if you have them and know you are going to buy this item often.

I also see that Walgreens has a *store coupon* for 99 cent Lindsay Olives. I have a *manufacturers coupon* for 55 cents off any Lindsay item. When you pair a store coupon with a manufacturers coupon, this is called "coupon stacking." I will then get these for 44 cents a can, which is great for a large can of olives. The small cans of Great Value olives usually cost a little over $1.00.

Here is another example of coupon stacking. I have a manufacturers coupon for $1.50 off any two Ziploc products. I also have a store coupon for $1.00 off any two Ziploc. If I pair these together, I will get $2.50 off of two Ziploc products. I can use them now, or wait until Ziploc Products go on sale at Walgreens and get even more savings, I just have to make sure I use them before the expiration dates.

  6. I am new to using coupons regularly, do all stores let you use more than one coupon on an item? I know when I use coupons the cashiers act like I am making their life so complicated. Any suggestions? Thank you and I love your site.
