 HowtoUseBOGOCoupons

I know, I know….Coupons can be sooo confusing sometimes, right?? I know many times buy one get one free coupons (BOGO) can be confusing, especially if you follow social networks where everyone is sharing deals and what they have learned along the way. As always, here at My Momma Taught Me, I try to keep you all informed with what I know to be the most accurate and proper ways to use coupons. Here I break down what BOGO coupons are, how to use them, and examples. I hope you find this helpful.

What does BOGO mean?

BOGO is referring to a Buy One Get One Free coupon (or promotion). In the case of a coupon you need to buy one item in order to get the other item free using the coupon. Always check the coupons “up to” price when using these coupons. Sometimes the product may cost more than the up to price and you will not get it totally free.

Buy One, Get One Free Coupons + Cents Off Coupons

When I think of a BOGO coupon, I look at it like this: a Buy One, Get One Free manufacturer coupon is the same as having a money off the purchase of 2 items coupon. You cannot use a $1.00 off 2 coupon and a $0.50 off 1 coupon on the same purchase of only two said products. So it would make sense that you cannot use a BOGO manufacturer coupon and a money off 1 manufacturer coupon on the purchase of two products. In order to use them correctly, you should purchase 3 products to use both coupons. A BOGO Coupon attaches to 2 products (or more depending on items).

BOGO Sales: How to Use Coupons with those Store Sales

 

Buy One, Get One Free Store Promotion

You can use a BOGO manufacturer coupon in conjunction with a BOGO sale, unless that store policy does not allow it. One product is free to the customer and will be reimbursed by the manufacturer listed on coupon. The other product is also free to the customer, but this one is from the store.

Buy One, Get One Free Store Coupons

With store BOGO coupon you can stack that with a money off or BOGO manufacturers coupon, unless the store policy does not allow.

Example if store Does allow it:

Store Sale Buy One, Get One Shampoo Free  $3.00 each
Buy 2 Shampoos – $3.00 each
Use 1 – BOGO Shampoo Coupon
Final Cost – FREE!
(one free from sale, on from coupon)

Example if store Does Not allow it:

Store Sale Buy One, Get One Shampoo Free  $3.00 each
Buy 3 Shampoos – $3.00 each
Use 1 – BOGO Shampoo Coupon
Final Cost – $3.00 for all 3
(you are paying for one, getting on free from coupon, and one from sale)

Two Money Off Coupons with BOGO Store Sale

Depending on the stores coupon policies, you may be able to use 2 money off coupons on a BOGO store sale.  Less and less stores are allowing this use of coupons. Many stores now do not allow us to use coupons on the free item during a BOGO sale.

Buy Two, Get One Free Coupon

In order to use a buy 2, get 1 free coupon you would need to purchase 3 products all together listed on coupon. The same here goes for buy 2 get, get 1 free coupons as it does for BOGO coupons. You cannot use a money off coupon in conjunction on the same 3 items.
