Part of the ABC’s of Couponing Guide

What is a Double Coupon?

First, let’s start with what double coupons aren’t.  I have heard people think you are using two manufacturer coupons on one item.  That is illegal and it not what double coupons mean.  Second, I have heard people think it simply means coupon stacking (when you use one store coupon and one manufacturer coupon on one item).  Stacking is valid and legal at many stores, but this is not what double coupons mean.  There is no such thing as a “double coupon”. What there are, however, are stores that allow you to double a coupon.

You use the same coupons you find in your local Sunday paper or print online.  Certain stores will let you double the value of the coupon.  When you redeem the the coupon at your local store during a double coupon promotion you will get twice the value of the coupon taken off the one item. If a coupon on a package of Huggies is $.50 off, you’ll get $1.00 off your package of Huggies.

Some coupons say “do not double” – read my post on Do Not Double coupons, why they say this, and why you can still double these in most cases!

When a store “doubles a coupon”, the store still only gets refunded the value of the coupon from the manufacturer.   They take the extra amount they doubled out of their own pockets, as an advertising expense.

You can use double coupons to get high value items free!  If a razor is normally $8, but is on sale for $4 (or on sale for $8 and is BOGO free), and you have two $2 off coupons, and your store doubles up $2, they would take off $4 for each razor, and then you would get both razors free!

Do you have a list of which stores double coupons?
Some stores don’t advertise that they double- so make sure to ask!   Other stores only double on certain days of the week, every week.  Kmart doubles randomly, and sometimes it is up to $.99 and other times it is up to $2.00, they just advertise it in their weekly circular.   Please leave a comment and let us know which stores in your area double, so we can create a master list.  Here is a list of over 20 stores and whether they double or not is listed on their policies page.

Know the rules of your store before you shop:

  • The store may limit your total coupons used to no more than 75 (or another number) per transaction or visit.
  • Stores may limit you to no more than 4 coupons for the purchase of 4 of the same items.
  • Each store doubles to different amounts; some stores double coupons $.50 and under, other stores double coupons up to $2.00.
  • Some stores won’t let you double coupons on clearance items.

Sharing is caring: Don’t go crazy and buy 100 of an item and clear the shelf.   If you know a great deal is coming, ask your store to order you extra of the item.

Tips for making your trip less stressful for you (and the cashier):

  • Bring the stores circular ad that advertises the double coupons. Some cashiers don’t know about their own stores promotions.
  • Have your coupons out and ready to scan before you get to the register. Put the same items together when checking out, and have your coupons in the same order as your products are being scanned.  Sometimes when items don’t match-up and the cashier has to scan the register tap to find them, this will make it easier for them to find the coupons and products because they are in order.
  • Hand the cashier each coupon one-at-a-time so that you can verify that non stick together and you are getting all your savings.

Do I have to pay taxes on items I get for free?
This varies by store but most registers will still ring up the total tax due.

Let’s break couponing down to be fun and easy, not extreme and time-consuming!

Question from a reader:

I’m confused by the BOGO sales when they are matched up with BOGO coupons, how do the items come out free?

This is one question which is not easily answered.  At most stores, if a sale is buy one get one free, then you purchase one and the other is free.  So if you use a BOGO free coupon on top of the sale, both products end up free.

But at some stores, they say if you have to actually be paying for one, so you will end up buying three, and getting two for free.

I like the wording My Coupon Library used to explain this:

The coupon acts as payment for the one bought and then they give you the second as part of their store promotion. The store gets paid for the item when they submit the coupon. The manufacturer was paid for both the items when the store bought the products and then only gives money back for one of the items when the coupon is submitted.

There are some stores however that treat these sales and coupons a little differently. Rather than giving you the item for free, you buy one and then receive two free (one free for the coupon and one free for their sale). It just depends on how the store accepts the coupon

If you combine BOBO free sale with a BOBO 1/2 coupon you could pay half off the price for one item and get the second item free. Again, I definitely recommend you talk to the manager at your local store because most stores reserve the right to allow their manager to refuse any coupons at their discretion

Part of the ABC’s of Couponing Guide
Let’s break couponing down to be fun and easy, not extreme and time-consuming!

Have you ever ran to the store to score an awesome deal, then find the store is sold out? Before you start to pout, think about getting a rain check.

A rain check is a slip of paper that you can get from a store when they are out of an item that is on sale. The slip of paper allows you to come back when they have the item back in stock to purchase it for the sale price.  Often the store associate will sign the piece of paper to verify it since it won’t have a barcode.

So even after the sale ends, you can come back and get the item for the sale price!  Sounds great, but keep in mind:

  • Check your coupons expiration dates!  No use going through the trouble of getting a rain check if the coupons you need to get the cuckoo deal will be expired by the time the store is back in stock.
  • Items on Buy 10, get $4 off sales usually you will not be able to get rain checks on, unless you plan on getting all 10 items on the raincheck.
  • Clearance items aren’t valid for rain checks.  Only sale prices.
  • Register rewards from Walgreens, and Plenti Points from Rite Aid are not eligible for rain checks.
  • EB’s at CVS are eligible for rain checks.   I cut the ad out so I remember what it is I wanted, and what the limits are so when I go to redeem the rain check I make sure to get the correct items and EB’s.

Next time you are in a store for a sale and it is wiped out, think about getting a rain check! Then when you go to use the raincheck, tell the cashier before you swipe the groceries so the cashier can scan them correctly.

If you go back to the store and the items still are not back in stock, make sure to request to have the rain check expiration date extended.   On great sales you may have to extend these for several weeks.
