Before you start shopping be prepared.
1. Know the store’s policy regarding coupons and purchasing limits
2. Check the site for the weekly ad with coupon matchups so you know what is on sale and all the coupons that match
3. Make a list – Start by finding all the best deals in the ad that you have coupons to match. Start by planning your meals with the items that are on your list of “best deals” and whatever items you already have on hand, then add anything else that you will need to complete your meals. If there are any other staple items that you need in the house add those last.
4. Let’s Go Shopping – BUT STICK TO YOUR LIST!!!
A few more notes…
If your store is out of a sale item don’t forget to get your raincheck.
Most rainchecks are good for 30 days from the date issued. CVS rainchecks NEVER expire.
Some stores will honor your coupons if they expired after the date on the raincheck…Check with your store
**CVS will issue ECBs on your raincheck if the item qualified for one at the time the raincheck was issued, Walgreens will NOT issue register rewards on a raincheck item.**Extreme Couponing Tip: You can usually get two prints of most internet coupons. To find them in the easiest possible way, use our preclipped links that take you right to the coupon. Then come back and click the same link to get your 2nd print. This will save you the time spent searching for the coupon.
