Extreme Couponing Tip: Use Coupons with Rain Checks

When sale items are out of stock, rain checks allow you to cash in on a sale later at your convenience. But did you know you can make the deal even better by using coupons? Just as you can use coupons on sale items originally, you can cash in coupons when you redeem rain checks. When redeeming rain checks, alert your cashier before the items are rung up since he will need to manually enter the old sale price.

Another great benefit of redeeming rain checks is waiting until a matching coupon comes out or you get more coupons. This can make a good sale a GREAT one later on! Just make sure that those coupons you had for the original sale still have valid expiration dates. Most stores do not accept expired coupons.
