Cut Costs With Coupon Stacking -- Savings Experiment

While clipping coupons has always been a simple way to cut costs, maximizing your coupons can be an art in itself. Here are some introductory tips on how you can start clipping, and save more than ever.

First, there's coupon stacking. Manufacturer coupons are available in the Sunday paper, on product boxes and online, while store coupons can be found in sales circulars, on supermarket websites and even on your receipts.

When you find a manufacturer coupon and a store coupon for the same item, you can double-stack them for big savings. For example, a bag of Campbell's Go Soup normally costs $2.49 at Target. With a $1-off manufacturer coupon and a $1-off store coupon, the final cost drops to 49 cents. That's a savings of 80 percent.

A lot of well known retailers allow coupon stacking, including Walgreens, JCPenney and Walmart.
Check your favorite store's policy to find out if they support it, as well.

Next, there's coupon doubling. This is when a store automatically doubles the value of coupons of 50 cents or less. You'll see these deals offered at stores like Albertsons, Shop Rite and Safeway. For a complete list, check out, but keep in mind that each store may have its own restrictions.
