Coupon Tips

Subscribe to All You Magazine for the coupons!
You will never see a magazine that has more coupons than this one! You’ll save money ordering your subscription thru Amazon.com rather than directly from All You. I think you’ll save much more than that with the coupons you’ll get out of it. This is the best source of manufacturer’s coupons other than the Sunday newspaper with coupon inserts.

Hi Everyone,I'm new to the world of printing coupons online. I must say that initially I was very excited about all of this. Today was the first day that I tried to use my(correctly printed)coupons, only to be told by the cashier at my local Giant Food Store that"We're not supposed to take these, our machines will accept them but we were told that we're not supposed to take them". I was left with a handful of coupons that I couldn't use….Did I miss something? I thought these were manufacturers coupons. Guess I'll need to call cust. service at each store before going to make sure they'll accept the coupons? Signed, Somewhat Discouraged Shopper.

Somewhat Discouraged Shopper – Most stores accept printable manufacturer's coupons, but some do not. You need to ask a manager what your store's coupon acceptance policy is. Even if a cashier says "we don't accept these coupons" I still encourage you to speak to a manager. Sometimes store employees are not properly trained, and will reject coupons that they should accept.-HeatherFreebies 4 Mom

I won 2 $4 coupons from the pace sweeps. I was able to use both of these for the full face value at Target, even though the items were less than $3.

I have a couponing question. Coupons.com has GoldnPlump chicken coupons, $1.00/1. Cub Foods this week has BOGO on GoldnPlump. Does that mean that I can use two $1.00 off coupons since I am buying two from the manufacturer but Cub is giving me one free? I don't want to game the system, but that would be a lot of chicken at a little price, so I would like to know! Thanks!

At most stores you can use one manufacturer's coupon for each item even if the store has a B1G1 sale.

I have sometimes had that issue as well. I just found an awesome website (clippingyourcoupons.com). I normally spend my weekends, clipping my own coupons and hitting all the stores. This week, I was surprised for a double coupon sale I wasn't prepared for. K-mart had a huge coupon sale going on but you could not use computer printed coupons. I looked online and find this new site. It was easy- cheap- and I got my coupons this afternoon. (I just ordered them yesterday. HUGE time saver. Now I still get the good coupons, but I have my weekends back with my kids!

Just read your comments on "do not double coupons".I have been shopping at a Kroger store about 40 minutes from my home where they double up to $1.00.Imagine my surprise when last week the cashier would not double the coupons that had that verbage on them.She had to actually make the computer not double them!!Told her I had been shopping there for ages,never had anyone tell me that.Had to go through $206.00 worth of groceries to get items out.Sent an email to the company-have yet to hear anything.I only had 13 coupons totaling $11.25.Embarassing and time-consuming!!!
