Are You Maximizing Buy One Get One Deals?

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!

Easy savings!

 
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?
  1. Buy the CHEAPEST cleanser and a body wash worth $8.99.
  2. Also paired with in-store promotion Buy One Get One 50% off.

BUY X AMOUNT GET Y AMOUNT

  1. Congratulations on all your savings! I am not a very good coupon-er: I always forget my coupons home.

  2. Great tips! I am just starting to coupon, and I am learning how important it is to plan ahead in order to maximize savings.

  3. Great deals – I just wished couponing wouldn't be so time consuming

  4. Great tips! Last year was the first year that I started couponing and keeping track of my purchases. Wow, what an eye opener! This year I'm fine tuning my couponing with the tips above and I have been very successful with saving money. That's what it's all about, right? lol

    • Great to hear! Yes, every little bit helps..and adds up, which is why I started tracking my coupons, it is a real eye-opener for sure! :)
