About Coupon Stacking
What is Coupon Stacking?
Let’s face it, the economy is difficult and people are continuing to seek out creative methods of saving money. One such method is a process called coupon stacking. This process is not to be mistaken as double or triple coupon offers that many grocery stores offer. Coupon stacking involves using more than one coupon on an item, or using a coupon on top of a special sale at your store.
Everyone knows that grocery stores accept coupons. Stacking at a grocery store is easy. For example: if a grocery store is offering the price of $3.00 for an item, you can use more than one coupon to belay the cost by using one store coupon and one manufacturer’s coupon, reducing the cost of the item by the total amount of all coupons for the applicable item. Another way to save money is to shop online and use coupon codes on top of reduced prices for items.
Another method of stacking coupons is to redeem your coupon on an item that is already on sale. Not only do grocery stores allow for this practice but many retail outlets, clothing stores, department stores, and specialty outlets purposely create sales around corporate coupons that are mailed or offered in newspapers or online. For instance, there are great 10% Off Coupons for Overstock.com that will help you save a lot on anything you purchase. Keep in mind that this is not always the case. Be certain to read the conditions on the coupons. Many shops, like fabric stores, restrict the coupon discount to items of regular price, not sale prices.
Outlet malls are a great place to save money on items that are out of season. If you are not worried about the latest pair of blue jeans then outlet malls are a great place to stack a coupon onto the already reduced price of the items you purchase. Many outlet malls even help you by passing out coupons at the front.
For Your Information
Many stores allow the practice of coupon stacking but there are just as many that do not accept more than one coupon per item. Also a store that may have accepted the practice in the past may have changed their policy. It is better to know ahead of time than to be caught off guard and unable to use the discounts you were counting on to belay the costs of your grocery items.
Store coupons can be found in store-specific circulars, through the store’s web site, or through mailers. Manufacturer coupons can be found in the Sunday paper and online. Identifying the difference is as easy as looking at the coupon. If the word ‘Manufacturer’s Coupon’ shows on the face of the coupon then it is. Store coupons have the store name or logo clearly marked on the face of the coupon.
