Using Coupons at Buy 1 Get 1 Free Sales

Buy 1 Get 1 Free CouponsWhen you see a Buy 1 Get 1 Free (BOGO) sale at your local grocery store, CVS, Rite Aid, Walgreens or other retail store, you’ll save the most money if you use a coupon for each item. Many think that a coupon can only be used for one item, but this is not the case.**

Example:

Post Raisin Bran cereal is $3.99 and your local market has a special this week offering the cereal Buy 1 Get 1 Free.

Find two coupons for this item. For example, you have two coupons, each good for $1.50 off one box of Post Raisin Bran cereal.

Do the Math!

$3.99 for two boxes of cereal with the Buy 1 Get 1 Free deal

Use two $1.50 coupons = $3.00 off

You pay .99 cents for two boxes of cereal.

Less than 50 cents each for a box of cereal? Now that’s a deal!

At times, that B1G1 free deal can pay YOU back….

Example:

Progresso Soup $1.49 Buy 1 Get 1 Free

Find 2 coupons, each valued at .75 cents off each can of soup (total savings $1.50)

Do the Math!

$1.49 for two cans minus $1.50 (2 coupons)

You pay -.01 cent for two cans of soup. That’s a freebie plus in my book! (at my local Stop & Shop, double coupons are offered every day for coupons up to .99 cents. In that case, I’d buy 4 cans of soup, use two .75 cent coupons, double them to total $3.00 off … 4 cans of soup = $2.98 – $3 = -.02 cents! I like that!)

**Most of these stores offer the B1G1 free item when you use your store savings card. The items will be at regular price until your card is scanned. I typically hand in my coupons first, then the savings card to make sure my coupons are applied properly.
