What the heck is stacking coupons?

Stacking coupons can be VERY hard to understand. So this will hopefully help explain it a little further.


Target has online coupons that you can print. (Note: some will print manufacture coupons and those can not be stacked) They will have the Target bulls eye on the bottom and at the top say Target Web Coupon. These coupons CAN be used with a coupon that comes from the manufacture.

Target + Manufacture

These two coupons can be used to get $4 off any Nivea Body Wash listed on the coupon, so in the end your body wash will more than likely be FREE!

There are also coupons from Target that you get in the paper, mail, or from peelie's off product you HAVE purchased. These coupons will say Target Coupon and have the Target Bulls Eye on them.
You can stack these the same as the Target Web Coupons. 

Walgreen's has a variety of online coupons every month, that are also in their coupon book. They are called Instant Value Coupons (IVC). You can get your coupon book at any Walgreen's store.Also every weekly ad has a variety of Walgreen's coupons in it too. 
This is an example of an Ad coupon, which if you had a MANUFACTURE Aquafina coupon you could use BOTH coupons. 

This is an Example of an Instant Value Coupon (IVC) you can use the
 Kotex Coupon with a MANUFACTURE coupon to get even more off! 

This is what the Walgreen's June Coupon book looks like.

(These are some of the coupons from the 8 weeks of savings. Although I am sure yours are not covered in spaghetti sauce... some little hands got to them!) Notice the Dawn one, there will more than likely be a .25/1 this weekend in the P&G Insert which means I will get the dish soap for .54 when I use both coupons. (Store + Manufacture)

Family Fresh will also have coupons from time to time that you can use with a manufacture coupon. The Coupons that you get that are for 8 weeks of savings can be stacked with a manufacture coupon. Also from time to time there are coupons in their ads that say Store Coupon, these if for a manufacture item like Oscar Mayer, Tide, Etc. can be stacked.

(If I had a Gold'n Plump Coupon from the Manufacture I could use the above coupon with that for even more savings.)

County Market has Coupons in their ad every week that say County Market Coupon as long as they are the Hudson, County Market Coupons you can use them at our location and use them with a Manufacture coupon for more savings.

One thing I need to make note of is that is it NOT ok to use multiple manufacture items for the same product. Even if the register does not beep at you I have yet to see a Manufacture coupon that states you can use more than one manufacture coupon on the same item. Doing so is considered fraud. While you may scam the cashier and save more money, in the end you are giving the coupon community a bad name. Also The retailer and manufacture are out money than, and eventually may stop accepting coupons. So if you are unsure, please be honest and ask a customer service member. There are many ways to save A LOT with coupons with out lying and scamming the system. 

If you have anymore questions about stacking coupons that I did not answer, please leave a comment or email me at 

Happy Savings!
