Can you use more than one coupon on the same item? Believe it or not YOU CAN. It will just take a small amount of research. How much research? Either one telephone call or a stop by the customer service desk at the store of your choice.
Let's start out by explaining that there are basically two types of coupons - manufacturer's coupons (the ones usually printed in the Sunday paper) and there are store coupons (the ones usually printed in an insert for a particular store such as CVS, Walgreens, etc.).
Some stores allow you to use their store coupons and manufacturers coupons on the same item.
For example, in the Sunday newspaper you find a manufacturer's coupon for Resolve Carpet Cleaner for $1.00 off of one. As you go through the inserts you find that your local Walgreens has their own store coupon for Resolve Carpet Cleaner for $2.00 off of one. The regular price for the item is $3.99. Here's the breakdown:
$3.99 - Original Price
- $1.00 - Manufacturer's Coupon
- $2.00 - Store Coupon
$0.99 - YOUR FINAL COST
That is an AMAZING deal!
Now, how do you find out if your store allows you to use two coupons for the same product? ASK. Either call and ask to speak to the manager or stop by the customer service desk at the store. Now, if there are several of these stores within a few miles of each other, you will have to call each one. Sometimes the same chain store is within 10 miles of another one and each of them have a different policy.
Most of the stores out there do not publish their coupon policies. This, I'm sure, is one of the many reasons why.
