  1. How do you post a deal? I have a deal from target Total $71.04 – $64.62 in coupons = $4.81.I had to pay tax of $5.96 . total due was $10.77, I paid more in taxes then my actual bill!!! I would like to put a picture of my receipt.

  2. You can’t do the Herbal Essense that way. You’d have to at least 8 bottles. Per verbiage on P&G coupons you CANNOT combine the $3/2 and the BOGO.

    • My coupons are not from P&G, they are from Red Plum and Smart Source. They do not say anything about not combining with BOGO…am I still ok to use them? They say no more than 4 like coupon per household per day. I did it already once before I saw this post and did not have a problem.

  3. Laura is right, transaction # 1 post unfortunately, has you trying to do something that is not allowed, please remove so none gets misled.

  4. im not understanding why it wouldnt be allowed… if youre buying 6 items using 2 coupons to cover 4 items and 2 more coupons that cover 2 items. albertsons allows you to use coupons on a free item from a store sale….

  5. Can somebody explains what “double coupons” means?

    • Depends on where you are seeing those words I believe. Albertsons has these small coupons sometime (like now) that are called “twice the value coupons”(meaning whatever coupon you have, attach their TTVC to it and you get ‘double’ your original coupon value). For years I’ve just known these as double coupons or doubler coupons.

  6. I bought 6 Herbal Essence shampoos. I used 3 bogo coupons and paid $3.99 for all 6!

  7. Me too Lisa!!! I’m soo new to couponing I couldn’t really even understand how that worked. But I saw the match up somewhere, gave it a try and voila!
