Using "Regular" Coupons to Score FREE Items
Here's a little-known tip that I'm always excited to share with new couponers -- you can actually get FREE products using regular dollars or cents-off coupons! So what exactly does that mean? Simply that in certain instances you can use an everyday coupon, be it $1 off, $0.75 off, $0.50 off, to get products at no charge as long as you adhere to the terms on the coupon.
Many coupons have language excluding trial and travel sizes, but not all coupons do. When this information is not present, they're fair game for being used on any size product, so taking advantage of this can require a little thinking outside of the box.
An excellent example is this post where I share how you can get Johnson & Johnson First Aid To Go Kits FREE after coupon at Target. These are priced at $1, and there was a $1 off coupon in one of the RedPlum inserts this past Sunday. That means you can currently pick this product up for FREE with coupon!
Johnson & Johnson First Aid To Go Kit, $1
$1/1 Johnson & Johnson First Aid Product, exp. 3-31-10 (RP #2 1/3/10)
FREE after coupon!
This is a great way to save a little more on the items you need, thus allowing you to spend more on what you want.
