Couponing refreshers

By | December 8, 2013

There are times when I get so busy I don’t bother “working my deals”. Then there are times like today when I realize I’m an idiot to skip it just to save a few minutes. Between manufacturer coupons, Target coupons printed from their website, Cartwheel, and special promotions, I shaved $30 off my total. A few things to remember:

  • The coupons you print from Target’s website are typically store coupons (you can tell because they have “Target coupon” printed in the top left-hand corner). These are great because you can use them at the same time as manufacturer coupons, which is called “stacking”. When you combine it with sales and promotions, you can really rack up. Today’s best deal: Tide liquid 100 oz. for $9.99. Not the best price, but if you buy 2, you get a $5 gift card. That brings it down to 2 for $15. I had a manufacturer coupon for $2 off one and a Target coupon for $3 off 2. That brought it down to $10 for 2, so basically the 2nd one was free.

Some of today’s other deals:

  • MP waffles: $1.99. I had a coupon for $1 off 2, which brought it down to $1.50 each. Cartwheel took off another .16, so that brought it down to $1.42 each.
  • Busy Bones: $2.79 each. I had a coupon for $1 off 2, so that brought it down to $2.29 each. Cartwheel took off another .24, so that brought it to $2.17 each.

On top of that, I also got 5% off of everything($5.52 in total) because I used my REDcard. I also had a $10 gift card that was mailed only to REDcard holders. So just having the REDcard saved me over $15.00. Really…if you don’t have one, go get one now. And, no, I don’t get compensated for saying that!
