Coupon common sense

Fill your bags with the best deals

If you have access to a computer, check for coupons online.

  • Use coupons when items are discounted or on sale.
  • It’s perfectly legal to use a store coupon and a manufacturer’s coupon at the same time.
  • Ask for rain checks if a store coupon is out.

Caution: Most cents-off coupons offered by stores or manufacturers are for the more expensive, highly processed foods or for foods in abundant supply. Don’t use a coupon to justify buying a food that your family doesn’t need or that costs more than a store brand, even with the coupon savings.

Coupons are usually available for sugary snacks and convenience foods. Have you ever seen a coupon for apples or milk? Use coupons only for items you would normally buy.
