If you are new to The Frugalette, this is my savings tab post. Since January 1, 2012, I’ve been keeping a running count of how much I’ve saved with coupons. This is not the number of coupons, but rather the total value. You can see my tracker on my sidebar and if you click it, it will take you to all the past savings posts.
BUY ONE GET ONE FREE
This week I used no less than FOUR BOGO coupons with in-store promotions, which made for VERY cheap buys. Even if you don’t coupon much, when you see the BOGO deals..go for them!
Before I started couponing, this promo screamed, “Gimmick!” Now that I know how it works, these are my favorite deals!
BUY X GET Y COUPON
- The above Olay coupon reads, “Buy one Olay facial cleanser get one body wash FREE (up to $8.99).
- How did I maximize?
- Buy the CHEAPEST cleanser and a body wash worth $8.99.
- Also paired with in-store promotion Buy One Get One 50% off.
=$2.39 for body wash and cleanser! 82% Savings!
BUY X AMOUNT GET Y AMOUNT
- The above Capri Sun coupon reads. “Buy 3 boxes get 1 FREE (up to$2.60)
- At Shaw’s this week they are on sale for $2.50.
FREE PRODUCT COUPON
- Use a FREE product coupon in conjunction with a Buy One Get One FREE store promo.
- How did I maximize my savings?
