couponcutter71 is on a distinguished road
Help Coupon newbie needing help figuring out how many to buy

Help please! I'm new to couponing (two weeks collecting coupons and 1 week of actual shopping with them) and I get the basic concept on how to save with them. I'm still a little fuzzy though on how many I have to or can buy with multiple coupons for a "x for $x" sale.

For example, this week at King Sooper's, Pillsbury crescent rolls, biscuits and cinnamon rolls are on sale 3 for $5. I have multiple coupons (printed and digital) for each one and I'm limited on space. I want to use all my coupons to get the best deal I can but I don't have room for 36 tubes of pastry.

The printed coupons I have are 4 for .50/2 (which will double to $1.00/2) and 1 for 1.00/2 (which won't double) and I have a digital coupon on my card for $1.00/2. Can I go on the concept of 1 per item purchased on these kinds of coupons and just buy 6 or do I have to buy 12 to be able to use all my coupons correctly?

Any and all help/advice is appreciated!

The way to figure this out is to add up the # in the $/#.

So the math is as follows...

4 X $/2 insert Q = 8
1 X $/2 IP Q = 2
1 X $/2 E-loyalty card Q = 2

and then the total is 12 to use all of your Q's.

FYI - If you can freeze these!

HTH!!

You have to buy in incements of 2 for each Q. So if you want 6, use 3 $1/2 Qs. Buy in 2s and you'll have an easy and fun trip!!!

The Q loaded on your card will be automatic. So the first two you buy will use up the cardQ. Use the 50/2 Q next because they double. Only use these if they double. You can use the 1/2 Q at a store that doesn't double. Don't buy what you won't use. These coupons havea tendency to come back around.
