Did you know?

Buy one, get one free coupons
Did you know that at most stores, you can use two coupons with a buy one, get one free coupon?

For example, yesterday at Rite Aid, I bought two Oral-B toothbrushes. Here's what I did:
2 Oral-B toothbrushes- $2.99 each
$2.99- used $1.00 off coupon= $1.99
$2.99- used BOGO coupon= FREE
paid $1.99 for 2

In the above scenario, the BOGO coupon is attached to the free item so you can use a separate coupon for the item you are paying for, bringing down the cost of the item you're paying for and getting you a second for free!

Most coupons state "one coupon per purchase." What that means is that you cannot use multiple coupons on the same item- you cannot buy one toothbrush and use two- $1.00 off coupons. Many people also think that the phrase "one coupon per purchase" means they can only use one coupon for one item that day. That's not true either- if you are buying five bags of diapers and have five coupons, you can use a coupon with each individual bag of diapers.
