I love to save money and I am sure you do too. I am even more thrilled when I am able to save even more – with two or more discounts on one purchase.
Just this past weekend, I was able to do this three separate times! First we stopped for lunch at a local restaurant with a coupon – $15 off the purchase of $30. That alone was a 50% savings. Then we charged it on a credit card that offered $5 statement credit. That’s a good deal.
We did the same at the drug store. We had the store’s manufacturers coupon for $5 off allergy medicine, plus the stores 30% off your total purchase and the allergy medicine was on sale on top of the coupons. I received an email from the store stating the special sale price of the allergy medicine. Bottom line, we paid $9.76 for the medicine that had a shelf price of $23.49. A 41% savings for another good deal.
On to grocery shopping, I pick the store that has the items we need on sale (based on the weekly flyer) and use manufacturer’s coupons to save more. For this store trip, this particular store has a $10 off if you spend $50 or more. We get a monthly postcard in the mail with weekly savings offers – soemtimes $10 off and other times a free / discounted product. Another win for us.
Saving with multiple discounts is good for your budget / wallet. To be honest, it does take some time to coordinate these deals to save. But not as much as you might be thinking. We do get the Sunday newspaper with the coupon inserts. I am on a handful of companies email lists for discounts. Lastly, we get physical mail from rewards programs we are a part of. All this adds up to savings for us.
