I have a coupon question that I did not see the answer to on your coupon 101 page. I am just getting started and purchased multiple papers for the first time this week. I see that there is a .50/off eight yoplait coupon as well as a .40/six yoplait. Since I purchased three papers, I have three of each. If I purchase eight yoplait cups will they let me use all six coupons since there are eight items or is one coupon since it covers eight yoplait containers?
I get this question about once a week so I thought I would do a post on it to help clear up any questions others may have. You can use one manufacturer coupon per item. But if the manufacturer coupon states $1.00 off 2 them you can only use one coupon per two items. Or in the above example you can only use one coupon ( for .50 cents off 8) per 8 items.
In some cases you can use two coupons per item this is called Stacking your coupons– You are able to do this when you use a in-store coupon ( a coupon that the store prints, normally in the weekly ad. It will have the store logo on it) along with a MFR (manufacturer coupon). You do have to be careful because some stores like Target have their store logo on manufacturer coupons. When you use the in-store coupon and the MFR coupon together this is called “stacking” your coupons. So watch for those in-store coupons, and see if you have a MFR coupon to go along with it.
