Preparing for a Double / Triple Coupon Event

  • GET INFORMED. Every double/triple coupon event is NOT the same. Confirm the terms of the event: read the store ad and review the store’s coupon policy. Call customer service with questions.  Get a store directory.
  • GET ORGANIZED: Separate all of your coupons that will multiply during the event. Example: If the store multiplies coupons up to $0.99, separate them from the $1.00+ coupons. Organize the coupons by categories similar to the layout of the store aisles (i.e., Cereal, Frozen, Beverages).
  • GET THE DEALS: Before you go to the store, review the sales ad and match your coupons to sale items; make a list. Once in the store, you are on the hunt for deals. Find the items you have coupons for and check the prices. Remember to keep your bottom line prices in mind — even though the coupon may triple in value, the regular price may be too high to make it a smart buy.
