1. Find your store using the handy dandy drop down bar. Regardless of if you live close or far way, are shopping at a grocery store, a retail store, a drug store or on the internet you will find a posting that will fit your needs. And all postings can be read the same way.
2. Once you choose the store you would like to shop at and find it on the drop down bar go ahead and click away! (Can’t find your store, let us know and we will work on getting you a link)
3. By clicking on your store you will be brought to a list of all the recent postings created for that store. Choose the posting that you would like to view.
4. Most postings will begin with that stores coupon policy (including a link to that stores policy if available), a link to that stores on line weekly ad (when available), or the available information that we have about that store.
– One thing to keep in mind is that even though your local store may have the same name as the store on our posting your store may have a completely different coupon policy. You always want to get to know your store and ask what there policy is before you fill up you cart. It is always easier to ask before you go shopping rather than once your transaction is rung in the register and you find out their doubling policy does not match what you were expecting.
– A good example of this is a grocery store in one town may double coupons up to a dollar and 50 miles away that same grocery store chain does not double coupons. Some of this is due to state and county laws.
– Different grocery store change have different doubling rules. Some stores only double coupons that are $0.50 or less, some will double everything $0.50 and under plus allow all coupons $0.51 to $0.99 to become $1, and there are a lucky few that actually allow any coupon under $1 to double the full value.
5. We will try to post deals in the same way every time so they are easier to read:
– The first line will list the item and the sale price of that item.
– The second line will list the available coupons and where they could be found. (could possibly be more lines if there are multiple couons available)
– The last line will be the total that the product will be after the coupons are used.
Brand Y Cereal 12oz Box $1.50 (This is the stores price)
$0.50/1 Brand Y Cereal 12oz Box Exp. 6/2011 (SS 12/05/10) (will double to $1/1)
*This coupon would be found in the Smart Source insert from 12/5/2010 and this stores policy would be to double this coupon to $1.
Total: $0.50 each
Frequently asked questions:
– In one of the match-up’s there is an extra line that says stackable in-store coupon, what is this?
- Many times a store will offer a coupon in their weekly ad or in the store that is not a manufacturer coupon but rather a coupon that you have to use to get the listed price in the store. Stores are able to allow you to use this in-ad coupon and a manufacturer coupon on the same item because thet are not going to be reimbursed by the manufacturer for the coupon. If you are indoubt that a coupon is a manufacturer or a in-store coupon it is always best to ask at the customer service center of your store first.
- The match-up total says it will cost a certian amount OOP but another amount after a Catalina, what does this mean?
– OOP means out of pocket. A catalina is a coupon that prints at a register when you purchase specific advertised items that you can use as cash on your next order (OYNO).
Sometimes after the coupon you say will double to and sometimes you say may double to, why is this done?
– Often times a store will have a special policy about printable coupons and sometime coupons will even say do not double. In these cases it is up to the store if they will double this coupon or not. We are just trying to let the reader know that there is a chance that your store will not double this coupon.
