Couponing 101: What is Stacking?

If you are just now joining this series, make sure you read all the other posts in the Couponing 101 here.

Today we are talking about the stacking. Stacking is a very simple way to maximize your savings. Stacking means that you can use 2 coupons on one item. It means, you can use 1 STORE coupon and 1 MANUFACTURER coupon on the same item. You CANNOT use 1 manufacturer coupons on one item.

Some people are nervous about how to tell the difference between the two. A manufacturer coupon will say manufacturer on it. A store coupon will say that it is a store coupon. A Target store coupon, will say “Target Coupon” on it. When in doubt, look for the word “manufacturer”. If it is there, then it is definitely a manufacturer coupon. :) It is really that simple.

Stores (locally) that allow stacking are Homeland, CVS, Dollar General, Walgreens, and Target. Stacking can definitely help out with cutting down your grocery bill.

Stay tuned for more posts in Couponing 101.

    Hi, I have a silly question…if the manufacturer coupon states “cannot be combined with any other coupon” then can you not combine it with a store coupon? I know it states the obvious but I thought maybe stores treat it differently? Such as Target? Thanks so much! :)

    Ive thought about stacking but I’ve seen either the manufacturer or the store say do not combine & in my mind that would be a no but I am just know trying to figure couponing all out… Is there a difference?
