Coupon Lesson: Understanding How to Use Two Coupons at One Time

I want to address this because at least once a week I am asked by someone if you can use two coupons on the same product.

How to use a BOGO Coupon

I want to discuss something today that is a bit of a trouble-maker in the couponing world. The BOGO coupon. The 4 letters in the acronym BOGO stand for Buy 1, Get 1 and usually ends with FREE, but occasionally will be a price such as $5 off. What is so tricky about a BOGO coupon though? Well you see,…
