What are your tricks? How do they work? I'm so confused....




Like lets say you have a coupon that says "Save $1 on a pack of hotdogs, Limit one coupon per purchase".... Can I print out say 3 of those coupons and get 3 packs of hot dogs? Or only one because it says limit one coupon per purchase?? (I really hope that made sense!!)

a purchase is 1 pack of hot dogs, meaning you cant use 2 coupons on 1 pack of hotdogs.



so yeah, you can use 3 coupons on 3 hot dog packs. if it says "per order/transaction/same day" you are limited

Spilt it up into 3 different purchases.

That just means you can only use one coupon per package of hot dogs.

Yes you can buy 3 packs and use one coupon per pack and split it into separate transactions just to be sure

Yeah, it says "limit one coupon per purchase" so I would use 1 coupon per pack.... But could that be done in one transaction? It doesn't specify... None of the coupons specify transactions, just per purchase.

as long as it doesnt say "limit 3 per transaction" or anything like that you can use them all in 1 trans

AWESOME! :D Thanks!




How much have you saved with couponing? Which store is better to use them at? I've been thinking Safeway because I can use my e-coupons on my card with the paper ones!

i alternate between Kroger and Remke(Biggs) based on their sales. what i look for are the items that are 1.00, if you find .50 coupons, its free cause they double. i also like the cart busters. buy 10 qualifying items, get $5 off. use coupons on those and you can get good deals!

those ppl are nuts lol. they have $10 coupons and the item is only 5 or 6 but the store applies the remaining 4 or 5 to their balance.



my MIL buys 15 papers every sunday stricly for the coupons. so she spends $30 on the papers. she has a stockpile and its extremely bad because she has OCD. "shampoo is on sale!! i NEED it!" woman, you already have 300 bottles of it!

I really want to have a stockpile, but nothing over the top. Just a nice one so if shit hits the fan, we will be ok for a little bit...

Not sure if you know about this but wanted to point it out. You can only print two coupons per computer. I use my in-law's computer from time to time to get more coupons.
