Tuesday's Tips - B1G1 Free Items

Walgreens, CVS, and Rite Aid have B1G1 sales often, but are you making the most of them? Here are two tidbits that I learned when I started couponing:

Tip 1
Most stores will let you use a coupon for each product involved in a B1G1 Free deal.
For example:
Mascara is B1G1 at CVS. If I had two $1/1 mascara q's, I could use both q's - one for each product.
Mascara - $6.00
Mascara - Free (B1G1)
-$1/1 x 2
Total - $4 for two mascaras!

Tip 2
Most stores will also allow you to use a B1G1 Free q on B1G1 free items.
Fore example:
Last week, Lifesavers were B1G1 at CVS. I used a B1G1 free q, and it took off the amount of one bag, leaving me to pay $0 for both bags!

I have gotten tons of Jane makeup for CHEAP during B1G1 free sales at Walgreens. I never would have used two q's if I hadn't been told by experienced couponers that I could, so I definitely wanted to pass the info along to you!

(Btw, this is the first in a series of Tuesday's Tips. Every Tuesday I'm going to post a couponing tip to help you in your quest to save money. Feel free to contact me and let me know topics you want me to address!)
