B1G1 Sales & Coupons

There are a lot of B1G1 sales out there!  Which means buy one product get one FREE!  This is a great way to use a B1G1 coupon and pair it with a B1G1 sale!  You can also pair a B1G1 SALE with two coupons, one for the item you are purchasing and one for the item you are getting free.

Using two coupons on a B1G1 sale:
Example: B1G1 Ester C Vitamens
Ester C Vitamens are $11.99
Use 2 $5/1 coupons
Total = $1.99

Using a B1G1 coupon with a B1G1 sale:
The store is running a sale and paying for one of the products and then the manufacture is paying for the other one that you are buying, and you walk away not paying anything OOP!
Example: B1G1 Purex Laundry Detergent
Purex B1G1 $5.99
Use 1 B1G1 Coupon
Total = $0 + tax
The store pays for one, the manufacture coupon is your "payment" for the other.

If your store doesn't allow you to walk out without paying anything, then buy 3 items and use one B1G1 q's paired with the B1G1 sale, and pay for the third one. 
Purex B1G1 Sale priced $5.99
Purchase 3 Purex
One is FREE from the sale
Use one B1G1 q (deducts 1 purex)
Pay $5.99 for 3 Purex's

This is my receipt for the B1G1 on the Purex at Walgreens.

Many times manufacturers release B1G1 coupons.  You can pair these with a $$/1 coupon.  So the B1G1 q is for the free item, and the $$/1 is for the one you are buying.  B1G1 coupons cannot be paired with a $$/2 coupon, unless you buy 3.  You can also stack a manufactures B1G1 coupon with a store B1G1 coupon too!
