How to Use Coupons to Get Free Groceries
Posted on Wednesday, February 23rd, 2011 at 1:00 pm
Coupon experts know how to get every last bit of value out of their coupons. Now you can too. Some people save more money with coupons than do other people. Learn the secrets that will help you get the most value from your grocery coupons, including free groceries!
Match Coupons with Sales and Promotions
Combining coupons with sales is the number one way to get the very best deals, including free products. For example, if pasta sauce is on sale for $.99 and you have a $.50 coupon, you can often double that coupon to $1, getting the pasta sauce for free.
$1 coupons that often won’t double can be usually be used on trial size, travel size or single serve products. These smaller versions are often priced at $1 or less each, again making them free.
Get Multiple Copies of Coupons
Get or print multiple copies of coupons if you can. Having multiple versions of coupons means that you can often stock up on great deals. Imagine never ever paying for toothpaste again or getting enough free waffles to fill your freezer?
Whenever you find a good deal to use your coupons on, purchase enough of the product with your multiple coupons to last you until the next sale.
Do you know those buy one get one free sales? Yes, you can use a coupon for each item, doubling your savings, often giving your both products for free or close to free.
Take Advantage of Rewards
Many stores offer rewards for buying certain products. Drugstores are especially known for this, but I have seen rewards offered in supermarkets, too. Rewards may come in the form of cash back or coupons good for money off of your next offer. They may also come in the form of rebates.
Take advantage of these rewards by combining them with your coupons. Not only can you get free items this way, but you can often get paid to buy these products!
