Couponing can be addictive — you can go all out with a binder, multiple newspaper subscriptions, and set aside hours every week to search for deals and steals. But learning to stack coupons smartly takes practice even in an age where you can load coupons on your smartphone and scan them while checking out at the cashier. To get the maximum savings on groceries, it is essential to learn how you can triple stack coupons. Here’s a helpful guide.
Use a coupon by a manufacturer
Triple stacking basically enables you to stack savings and receive three times the savings on a single item. So, use one manufacturer coupon per item. You can either print this from a coupon database online or find them in a newspaper.
Check for store coupons and discounts on the same item
This hack comes into play at Target(R) and other grocery stores. Target(R) is known to have its own coupons on items it wants to encourage customers to purchase. Sometimes, these coupons can come in the mail or else they are printed out at the register. You could keep them sealed in a separate envelope in your purse so you don’t forget where they are. Some grocery stores may also allow you to load virtual coupons onto your customer loyalty card. Then, those savings can be redeemed when you scan your card at checkout. So, in addition to your manufacturer coupon, use one store-specific coupon or deal.
Explore new products
Triple stacking works best with new products. Food companies love to introduce new products with promotional coupon offers. Some stores may also highlight a new line of products by having them on sale. So, take advantage of this if you spot it. Another tip to score quadruple savings on a single product is to check if the product comes with a mail-in rebate. It’s a rare opportunity but if you’re lucky to get it, don’t ignore it!
