Extreme Couponing Tip: Know When to Buy Full Size or Trial Size

“How do I know if I should use a coupon on a trial size item or the full size version?” 

Buy Full Size When:

  • It’s a rock bottom sale price.
  • You love the product.
  • The coupon fine print excludes trial/travel size.
When you can, hold off using a coupon until near the expiration date to see if you can get the full size for super cheap or free. It may cost a bit more in the overall total, but chances are it’s cheaper per ounce than trial size.

Buy Trial Size When:

  • Coupon doesn’t exclude trial/travel sizes.
  • It makes it very cheap or free (double check price per ounce).
  • Trying out a product or replenishing your travel or 72 hour kits.
