Extreme Couponing Tip: Know the Benefits of Shopping One Store

While shopping multiple stores helps you cash in on multiple deals, sometimes shopping at one store can be beneficial!

Fuel Tank Advantage: Driving to many stores, especially if they’re far away, can be burdensome. Add to that rising gas prices, and shopping at one larger store can save your fuel tank and extra wear on your car.

Store Gift Card: To help stay on your budget if you shop mainly at one store, it can be beneficial to buy a monthly or bi-monthly gift card and use that instead of  a credit card. When you stow away the credit card and opt for a gift card, you don’t accrue interest, and you have a budget limit that keeps you in line.

Time Factor: Super busy schedule or stores far away?  Try condensing your shopping trip into a once a week occasion at a single store. It may be an hour-long haul (or two), but getting it out of the way and freeing time up for work, school, or family can make it worth it.

Price Matching: If you can only shop one store, try to find one that ad matches competitor sales. This way you can cash in on numerous sales all at once. For further information on specifics, read Target’s and Walmart’s Ad Match Policies.
