Extreme Couponing Tip: Shop the Last Day of a Sale
While most Krazy Couponers know that shopping the first day of the ad week gives you a better chance of getting sale items in stock, there are some perks of getting to the store on the last day!
- Sneak preview: Check out a preview of the upcoming ad if you get the chance. Many times previews can be available on the store website or in mail fliers the day before the ad week starts. This allows you to get the best deal by either shopping that day and cashing in on the current sales or waiting until the next week.
- Check it out: Store out of stock? No problem! Rain checks can be a blessing in disguise when you wait to redeem them until a matching coupon comes out or you get more coupons, or you can simply cash them in at your convenience.
- Double double: Grocery stores such as Sprouts Farmers Market, Sunflower Market, Sun Harvest, Henry’s Farmers Market, and Elm City Market feature a “Double Ad Day.” Most sales run Wednesday to Wednesday, meaning that if you shop Wednesday, you can get two weeks’ worth of deals at once! Save time by shopping once every 2 weeks instead of each and every week to get in on the hot sale prices.
