Stacking or combining coupons is when you layer sales, coupons, rebates, and promotions to get a huge overall discount on a single product. Learning how to stack coupons is one of the trickier things about couponing even for the smartest shopper. This is because most coupons have fine print that you need to read and understand. On top of that, every store has its own coupon policy. So, here’s how you can combine coupons to get better discounts.
Stacking Coupons Level 1: Use a coupon when you buy something on sale
One of the easiest coupon combing hacks is to use a single coupon when you buy an item that is on sale. In order to learn more about your store’s sales, pick up a weekly sales flyer. Most grocery stores run their sales Wednesday through Tuesday every week. While shopping on sale days, do not forget to check out the clearance end.
Stacking Coupons Level 2: Sign up for store rewards programs
Many stores like Walgreens and CVS offer a lot of promotions and cash-back opportunities when you sign up for their loyalty programs. This is almost like earning passive income every time you shop. You can earn these discounts and points even when you use coupons!
Here are some more rewards programs offered by stores:
Walgreens Balance Rewards
Target Circle and Target RedCard
Kroger Fuel Program
Kohl’s Yes2You Rewards
DICK’S Sporting Goods ScoreCard
Stacking Coupons Level 3: Combine manufacturer coupons with store coupons for sale items
Now that you are already a manufacturer and store coupon expert, look for an item that accepts both types of coupons and make sure it is on sale. Plus, you will be earning rewards points at stores that offer a loyalty program.
Stacking Coupons Level 4: Access rebate app savings on top of coupons, sales, and store rewards
Rebate apps can offer cash back for items you buy at the store. You do not take any action until after you make that purchase. Due to this, you can stack it with any type of coupon, sale, or anything else. Also, don’t be shy about redeeming an offer from multiple apps on the same item, if this is an option. Once you have completed a purchase, tap the offer you want to use and then scan the barcode on your receipt, and upload it to the rebate app. After you reach your app’s minimum payout amount, you will receive payment via PayPal or in the form of gift cards.
