“Coupon Stacking” Is a Shopping Trick to Save Big Money. . . Here’s How to Do It

It’s the most wonderful time of the year…but it can be stressful trying to buy gifts and stay on budget.

There’s a technique called “coupon stacking” where you can save a lot more than normal when you shop by using multiple coupons . . . it just takes a little research and a little legwork.

First, know before you go. There are around 80 major stores online that offer coupon stacking, which allows you to use more than one coupon when you check out. They all have different policies, but here are the three most common techniques you can use:

1.  Combine a storewide coupon with a coupon on a specific item.  For example, at Kohl’s, you could use a coupon for 10% off everything in the store, then also use a coupon for 10% off pajamas.

2.  Use a store credit card to save even more.  For example, if you have Target’s RedCard, you get an extra 5% off what you buy, even if you used a coupon.

3.  Buy discounted gift cards.  Lots of gift cards are discounted at this time of year, plus there are sites like Raise that always have gift cards for reduced prices.  So use multiple coupons AND pay with a discounted gift card to save the most.
