How to Coupon the Lazy Way
Jamie here! I recently got the Coupons.com app, and it's helping me get back to my couponing roots, but in the easiest most non-intimidating way possible. I stick to doing about three deals a week at Walgreens. (You could do lots of other stores, I've just gotten really comfortable with my tiny Walgreens trips!)
All you need to get the 3 deals I'm doing this week is the coupons.com app on your smartphone. NO coupons that you have to print or cut out. They are EASY. Ready?
This week is about getting that Halloween candy and some his and hers body wash!
Hershey's Single Bars – on sale 79¢
Buy 2 bars
Use the $1 off 2 Hershey's Singles Coupon in the App
Pay just 59¢ for both, or 29¢ each 🙂
Reeses (a Hershey's product) Snack Size Candy Variety Bags – on sale $1.99
Buy 2 bags
Use the $1 off 2 Hershey's Candy Bags coupon in the App
Pay just $1.49 per bag!
Softsoap or Irish Spring Body Wash – $3.99 each
+ Get a $5 Balance Reward when you buy 2
Buy a Softsoap and an Irish Spring body wash
Use $1 off Irish Spring coupon in the App
Use 75¢ off Softsoap coupon in the App
Pay $6.23 ~ Get back a $5 Balance Reward (like Walgreens Cash)
Like paying $1.23 or 62¢ each!
Helpful Walgreens Tip: Before heading into your store – if you click on the details of a deal on the Walgreens online ad, you can see what items are included and IF THEY ARE IN STOCK at your store. It's so frustrating to head into the store and then find out they sold out of your favorite deal!
NEED Toilet Paper or TIDE?
If you're up for a little bit of a more challenging deal – Shannon really wanted me to try this one this week as well!
There's a deal in this week's ad where you'll earn a $6 Register Reward (think Walgreens cash) when you buy FOUR mix and match products.
So here's Shannon's plan:
Buy Charmin Essential Toilet Paper 24 Rolls – $4.99
Buy Bounty Essentials 6 Rolls – $4.99
Buy (2) Tide Laundry Detergent 40 oz – $4.99 (pods are not included)
- Use $1/1 Charmin coupon in the App
- Use $1/1 Bounty coupon in the App
- Use $2/1 Tide coupon in the App
- and $2/1 Tide printable coupon
Pay $13.96 ~ Get $6 Register Rewards
Like paying $7.96 for all 4 items – or just $1.99 each!
Of course if you DON'T print a Tide coupon – and just rely on the app coupons – you'll still be getting a great deal. The cost will breakdown to about $2.99 per item instead. Heck that is only $1 more than the people who are printing that coupon – so don't let it hold you back!
More about the Coupon.com App:
The Coupons.com app has lots of the same manufacturer coupons that are on their classic site. But all you need to do to use them is click on the coupon and it loads up to your store loyalty card.
For stores without loyalty cards – think Target and Walmart – you just take a picture of your receipt afterwards and submit it to get your coupon savings added to your Paypal account.
Shannon wants to point out that you can stack the coupon savings from this app – with the cash back savings from other apps like Ibotta (her all-time FAVORITE). I would like to point out that I just don't have the brain space for all that 😉 (At least not during THIS season of my life).
In summary – there are lots of great coupon apps out there (You can get one for just about every store you shop at!) But the Coupons.com App is versatile in that it can cover most of your stores with just one app. And at stores with a loyalty card you will see your savings INSTANTLY which I love!
