Coupon Tip: Shop “Bonus” Discount Days
Certain stores will have promotions for different discounts and if you get in the habits of shopping on those days, it will definitely save you some money! Some stores have regularly scheduled days for discounts. For example, my Mariano’s Store (a division of Roundy’s) offers double coupons on Wednesdays. This is the only day and the only store that does this since I live in a non-competitive market. Many stores may also offer a senior discount or triple coupons on certain days of the week.
Pay attention to the days that your store has these “bonus” savings and make that your shopping day. I have found that if I plan to go to a store on a certain day every week, it’s much easier than trying to remember when to go or when the best deals are.
Along with this, some stores offer discount days less regularly. Walgreens is a great example of this. Occasionally, they will offer an additional friends and family discount that can be combined with sales and coupons, making for great deals! Keep an eye out for these and follow GCN to know when they are available. They also offer a senior discount day occasionally that can make for nice additional savings.
Departments stores also offer these types of bonus discounts- some are regular and some are special. Many have senior discount days or special promotions where you can save an additional amount of sales and promotions.
