How to Maximize your Coupon Value with Manufacturer Coupon

If you have ever used a coupon before you may have noticed in the top of the coupon near the expiration date the words “manufacturer coupon” or “store coupon.” You may have not paid this very much attention, but you should have! You see, store and manufacturer coupons are very much different, and by combining them together, the savings that you receive grow substantially.

Store Coupons Vs. Manufacturer Coupons

Store coupons are those listed by a supermarket or store. They are valid for use only at this store when the specified brands and sizes are purchased.  This means a store coupon from Kroger for $1 off of a box of Ritz crackers can be used only at Kroger.

A manufacturer coupon is one that can be used at any store selling that particular item. It is made available by the brand company. For example, a manufacturer coupon for Crest is one issued by Proctor & Gamble.

What many people do not realize is that these coupons can be used together! That’s right! If that $1 off Ritz coupon from Kroger tickles your fancy, you can use coupons from the web or the Sunday paper with that coupon and double the savings. So, if you find another $1 off Ritz on their website, you can save $2 on that box of crackers!


Where to Find Coupons

Manufacturer coupons are the most popular type of coupon that you will find. They can easily be found on the web, in the Sunday paper, on companies’ websites, and more. Store coupons can be found in the weekly sales ads put out by stores, on their website, in the little red coupon take-one centers in the aisles of stores and on your special shoppers cards when you load them from the web.


Keep in Mind

Most stores allow the use of both coupons for a single purchase, but you must check the policy with the store. If a store refuses to accept your coupons, speak with the customer service representatives and obtain a copy of the coupon policy. The coupon policies for most locations are also available on the web. Many times employees are unaware of the differences in coupons and will say they cannot be accepted when in all actuality they do. You can also click and find the store policies of many of the most popular stores.

All of the coupons available have expiration dates. Sometimes these dates are within the next week while others are valid for months. Be sure that you know these days so not to miss out on the special savings that are coming your way.

Ensure that you check the top of the coupon so that you know exactly what type of coupon that you have. You cannot use two store coupons or two manufacturer coupons together, but you can use one of each.

If you really want to save, go all out! Check your coupons against sales that are taking place at the store, and shop during those sales. Buy-one-get-one-free offers are very special ways that your store and manufacturer coupons can provide you the very best prices.
