Extreme Couponing Tip: Maximize Coupons for Free Products

Many times we try to qualify for deals that require a specific dollar amount for the deal.  For instance, during Thanksgiving there are the Free Turkey Offers or maybe you have a coupon for $10 off a $50 purchase at your store.  If you’re struggling to hit the amount needed to qualify for your deal, here are some tips that will help you qualify while keeping your out of pocket as low as possible.

  • Do you save coupons that you might receive for a FREE product? For example, sometimes we receive coupons in the mail from samples we post here at LRWC or other freebies, or from companies we contact asking for coupons.  I’ve accumulated some FREE Product Coupons which I’ve been holding on to.  For example right now I have coupons for a FREE Product for Nivea Lip Care, Tree Ripe Orange Juice, Land O Lakes Eggs, Ssips Drinks, Emmi Swiss Yogurt and Day-Lee Foods, mostly from contacting the companies requesting coupons.  Now is the time to cash in on these coupons!  This will help drive your total up to qualify for your deal while keeping your OOP expenses very low.
  • Go through our Shop For Free post each week and be intentional about “buying” items that are FREE with coupons that week at the store you’re shopping at to get your free product, even if this is a product you typically would pass on.  Donate the item or give it to a friend/family member who can use the product if you won’t use it.   Again, this is keeping your OOP low while helping you reach the qualifying amount.

So next time you receive a coupon for a FREE product, try to be a bit patient and hold onto it for a little while until you can maximize your savings and make the most of the coupon!
