As I’ve mentioned before, Derek and I both grew up in a coupon using household. I recently learned something cool about coupons that I wanted to share: stacking. Exhibit A: last week’s collection of Schick coupons from the mail, Target.com and the Sunday paper:
Since casually reading the blog Totally Target, I learned that you can print Target.com coupons or use the ones with the Target logos from the paper and stack them (aka pair them) with other manufacturer’s coupons. In fact, it says it right there on Target coupons: limit one Target and one manufacturer’s coupon per item. In essence, if I have $4 on a specific product Target coupon and a $4 off the same specific product manufacturer’s coupon, I can now get $8 off that item when buying it at Target!
Off to Target we went where we carefully paired up the coupons with the 15% off Schick products sale they were having for this week and purchased the below items that gave us the best deals:
The total cost for these items: $59.86
The receipt total after couponing: $21.21
Yes, that’s a $38.65 savings!
Coupons.com – tip: you can print these once per COMPUTER. So if there’s a great coupon and you have multiple computers, get printing!
