Coupons are definitely an effective way to save money but you want to make sure that you use them correctly so that you don’t encounter any problems while doing so That being said, here are some helpful tips to using them correctly.
#1. Disregard its picture.
Companies may feature their most expensive product or one they want to promote. If it says Save X Amount on “any one ABC product” it can be used for any of that particular brand’s products. If not, you may need to a buy a specific type of product.
#2. Read the actual wording:
Check the expiration date
Check for a limit to the # of Purchases you can do in a single transaction. In most cases, you’ll see the limit indicated in Red so that you can easily see it.
Look for size restrictions; does it say “excludes trial sizes”? If not, you may be able to get some freebies.
Does it Say one coupon per “purchase” or “transaction”?, there is a difference!
“one coupon per “purchase” means you are allowed 1 coupon per 1 item (ex: 4 items, 4 coupons) while “One coupon per “transaction” means you can only use that coupon once during that entire transaction.
These are just a few simple ways to help you using coupons go smoothly! Any tips/strategies not listed here that you use?
