Buy One Get One Free coupons rock for the obvious reasons. But there are two more reasons that you might not know about.
Reason #1: Kroger this week has Seapak seafood b1g1 free. You buy one coconut shrimp for $8.99 and get one free. PLUS- because you have two items, you can use a coupon on EACH of them. So use your $1 off coupons and that takes the total down to $6.99- which is just $3.50 per box of jumbo coconut shrimp. Buy a cheaper variety and it is even less.
Reason #2: If a store runs a B1G1 free promotion, then you can in fact buy 2- pay for none and get them both for free. You might be thinking this never happens, but it is happening right now. In yesterdays RedPlum coupons (from the paper) there was a Buy 1 Right Guard Deodorant, get one free. They are on sale at Walgreens this week buy one get one free. When you combine your coupon with their sale, you will get both for free.
I didn't pick any of these up because I hadn't gone through my coupons yet. I bet when I get there today they will be hard to find- but check anyway. Walgreens stocks their shelves regularly so it would be worth looking. Even if you don't use this brand of deodorant- this is a nice donation item. Someone might find it a blessing to have a personal need item at the food pantry so that they can use that $2 for something else they need at the store that week.
