Couponing Tips + Breakdown

With couponing, your goal is fairly simple. Layer sales, deals, and coupons to get a better price.

  • Example: Buy one get one (BOGO) + Coupon
  • Example: Buy one get one 1/2 off + Coupon

The best deals that I usually get are from Walgreens and CVS where you can get rewards for your purchases. So you can layer deals + Coupons + Rewards. Similar to the Kohls cash concept.
