  • Understanding Coupon Wording Limit One (MFC) Coupon Per Purchase You CANNOT use 2 coupons on 1 item • You CAN use 1 coupon per item
  • Understanding Coupon Wording • Limit 1 Coupon Per Transaction Per transaction = Per Checkout at register Limit 1 Coupon Per Purchase This just means PER ITEM
  • Understanding Coupon Wording • Limit one coupon per person/customer/household. You can only use one of these coupons.
  • Understanding Coupon Wording • Limit of 4 like coupons in the same transaction This means you can only purchase and use up to 4 of the same coupon in one transaction. If you plan to purchase more than 4 you will have to make two separate transactions.
  • Understanding Coupon Wording • X dollars off of X items / multiple items $3.00 off any (2) Clearasil Products As long as you buy in multiples of 2, you may use multiple coupons
  • Understanding Coupon Wording On the purchase of any (1) Sensitive Shave Gel (EXCLUDES 2.75 oz.) • Size Restrictions
  • Understanding Coupon Wording • Size Restriction – On any (1) Listerine Zero Mouthwash 500 mL or larger
  • Plan With Coupons Rules of Thumb:  You cannot stack manufacturer coupons anywhere  Many stores will not allow a coupon on the Free item in a BOGO sale  All stores have register line limits, keep it to a reasonable number of items per transaction or break the transaction up into multiple transactions.  Some stores have limits on the number of coupons in a transaction. Don’t be afraid to break up your purchases into smaller transactions to stay within the store’s coupon policy. Essentially: KNOW YOUR STORE’S POLICY
  • How Many Coupons Can I Use? • “Stacking” is using multiple coupons on one item • Only ONE of each of the following is allowed: Manufacturer’s Coupon Store Coupon Rebate (MIR) • These can be combined: Smartphone app (such as Ibotta, Shopkick) Credit Card Rewards Additional Store Reward Program (Such as Target Cartwheel)

The SS stands for Smart Source and you can find it in the May 22nd, 2011 insert. • Expiration Date: This is the date the coupon expires. • Price after coupon: This is the price you will pay after coupon
  • Plan With Coupons / Coupon Matchups • An example with a printable coupon: • Product: San Giorgio Pasta • Price: Price on sale is $1.00 • Printable Coupon: This is a coupon you will print online. • Price after coupon: This is the price you will pay after coupon
  • A Sample Matchup • CVS Deal Idea thru 5/18 Buy (2) M&M’s Bonus Size 9.9-14 oz 2/$5 -$0.50/2 M&M’s CVS Coupon OR -$2/2 M&M’s CVS Coupon from Red Machine AND -$1.50/2 M&M’s Brand Chocolate Candies, exp. 6/9/13 (RP 04/28/13) Final Price= as low as $0.75 each (from $2.50)
