YES! It can be done! Let's face it... Most people do not use coupons, because they don't see the point in saving a few cents here & there. It seems like a waste of time. And if that's all that coupons saved you, then, yes! That would be a complete waste of time!
But... when you use them the right way (meaning there is a wrong way) you will increase the value, which will then increase your savings! Here's how:
- Always match the coupon with a sale item. This will give you lowest price possible for an item.
- Use coupons at a store that will double the value of your coupon. Check out the Harris Teeter & Farm Fresh coupon policy.
- Match your coupon with a store coupon. Both a manufacturer coupon & a store coupon can be used for 1 item... 2 coupons on 1 item. Harris Teeter eVic members can save store coupons to their Vic card, which can be paired with manufacturer coupons. And Drug Stores offer a lot of store coupons.
- Use coupons on items at Drug Stores that qualify for their Rewards Program. This is an instant rebate that will print with your receipt & can be used as "cash" in that store for other items! Check out the Walgreens Reward Program for more info on these programs.
