Most people watch extreme couponing on television and have no idea where to start when it comes to using coupons.
Taking advantage of double coupon days is one of those secrets and the reason that the regular coupons for cents off become so valuable when they are being used in a store.
Double coupon days allow the customer to take advantage of an increased coupon value for a certain promotional day. Some stores have double coupon days once a month and other stores have double coupon days every week.
Learning the double coupon days schedule can help the customer that is beginning their journey using coupons to get the most from the coupon experience and can be an effective way to save more at home. Visiting the website, watching the store circular or simply asking the staff members at the local store can help the customer to know when the next double coupon days are going to occur.
Double coupon days allow the customer to double the value of the coupons, but most stores impose limits on the types of coupons, or the amount of the maximum value of the coupons that are being doubled. With most stores, the coupons can be doubled to a maximum of one dollar – meaning that a coupon with a value of fifty cents, and a coupon with a value of seventy five cents would both retain the value of only a dollar on double coupon days.
To make double coupon days profitable, it’s important to watch the sales and match up the coupons that are going to have the highest value with the items that are on sale. This means the customer should search for items in the store that are as close to a dollar as possible to get these items for nearly free.
In addition to doubling the value of the coupons that have been presented, the customer can often take advantage of couponoverage. This means that if the customer has a coupon for a product that will double to one dollar but the cost of the item is under one dollar, the customer can apply the overage of the coupon to other items in the cart.
This extreme couponing secret can take a little practise while planning the shopping trips but is often nothing more than learning the doublecoupon schedule, collecting the coupons and matching the couponsup with sales in the local stores.
