Coupons can help you score everyday products on the cheap if you know a few tricks.
And coupon stacking might be the best trick of all. It’s the practice of applying multiple coupons to a single product.
For example, here’s how I once saved on my favorite moisturizer, a 16-ounce product called CeraVe Moisturizing Cream With Pump. Yes, I must have the version with the pump, which does add to the price — I find jarred cosmetics otherwise unhygienic, among other reasons.
The cheapest price anywhere at the time I was shopping was about $15 at Amazon — although it has since dropped substantially in price. I got it for $10.20 at my local CVS. The trick? I used both a store coupon and a manufacturer coupon. I also paid with a 15-percent-off discounted gift card I bought from Raise.com.
CVS is one of a handful of retailers that allow you to stack multiple coupons for a single item. We’ve found six such stores, and explain the details of how you can snag extra savings at those retailers.
Manufacturer coupons can be found on third-party sites devoted to this type of coupon, such as Coupons.com. Some companies, like CeraVe, also offer printable coupons to consumers directly on their websites.
As always, you can also cut out coupons found in the newspaper or mailings.
