One of the biggest ways a Krazy Couponer can save is stocking up on products when prices are rock bottom. When stores run big promotions, this is the perfect time to stockpile!
Shopping at high-end grocery stores and drugstores can mean big savings during great sales. These locations run promotions to get shoppers in the door with the hope they’ll buy more than the sale items. But Krazy Couponers know to exclusively shop the best deals, saving big in the long run.
There are two main promotions stores run: “Save Instantly” and “Save on Your Next Order.”
- Save Instantly: When shoppers buy the stated number or total dollar amount of participating products, the register will automatically take off the stated price when the correct items are scanned or at the end of the transaction. Example: “Buy 10 Participating Products, Get $5 off Instantly!” Remember that you must buy the products in certain increments for the discount to apply unless the promotion specifically states “Buy X items or more and save $X each.”
- Save ONYO (On Your Next Order): When you purchase a certain stated dollar amount or a given number of participating products, get a coupon printout or a gift card to be used on a future purchase. These include Catalinas, Extra Bucks, Register Rewards, +UP Rewards, and Target gift card promotions.
Sufficient Stock: Another plus to shopping promotions is that stores will often have more stock on hand to meet a higher demand. Get what you need without clearing the shelves or asking for a rain check. Keep an eye out for end caps that have the promotional items if the regular aisle is empty.
