Coupon Tip: Half-Off Vitamin Buying Strategy

by Freebies4Mom on December 2, 2009 9:06 am

If you buy Nature’s Bounty or Nature Made vitamins at the grocery store or drug store, be sure to try this vitamin-buying strategy to save more than 50% on every bottle you buy.

Gather coupons. The best source of coupons is the Sunday ad insert. But you can also print Nature Made coupons and print Nature’s Bounty coupons plus coupons will come with your free samples. You’ll also find vitamin coupons in the blinkie machines in the grocery store aisles, and printing out as Catalina coupons at the register. Sometimes you’ll even find them inside the packaging, so keep your eyes peeled!

Only buy vitamins when they are on sale for “Buy One Get One Free”.
These sales happen on a regular basis at several stores (Kroger and CVS in my area) and the best way to find out when they happen is to read the weekly store sales flier. Also look for vitamins on clearance, but be sure to check the expiration dates. I typically see vitamins that are clearanced out because of a change in packaging and they are nowhere near their expiration date. You can still use manufacturer’s coupons on those clearance vitamins.

When you buy two bottles, use two manufacturer’s coupons. You can use one coupon for each product purchased regardless of what the store’s sale promotion is. That’s because the manufacturer is giving you the coupon savings, and the store is giving you the sale price savings.

Join the Nature’s Bounty Healthy Rewards and the Nature Made Wellness Rewards programs so that you earn points for every bottle of vitamins purchased. Those points add up fast and will gain you money-saving coupons to use on future purchases. These are higher value coupons (think almost a free bottle) than you can get from any other source. Just remember to log in and enter your codes to earn your rewards. You can earn a $7 coupon from Nature Made with 500 points.

Save your coupons until there is a “Buy One Get One Free” sale. When you get that high-value coupon by redeeming your rewards points, hold onto it until there is a “Buy One Get One Free” sale and keep increasing your savings on your vitamin purchases.

If you are buying other brands of vitamins you can still save money by timing your purchases to take advantage of sales and coupons at the same time to double-up on your savings.

If its BOGO, can I still use 2 manufacturer’s coupons? Since I am only technically buying one?

YES – because the store is offering you the “Buy 1 Get 1 Free” discount but you are still buying two items. The manufacturer is giving you the coupon savings on both items.

Vitamins certainly aren't cheap. Thanks for the tips!

You can also earn a rebate through Caregiver's Marketplace for this brand as well. I think it's .75 or $1 for each one.
