Fred Meyer has the 6 oz. cans of Blue Diamond almonds for $2. Use the $1/1 from the 1/29 SmartSource (Visionworks on cover) = $1.

The Van de Kamp link took me to a recipe page. No cpns seen. Something fishy going on here…..

Does anyone else have trouble using a manufacture BOGO coupon with a money off manufacture coupon at Fred Meyers? Like the example of the Stay Free scenario. My Fred Meyer has never let me do that.

I specifically do not do these types of deals because I don’t think they are truly legit. I feel fairly confident that most manufacturers want you to use one or the other (not both), but misunderstandings made by customers and cashiers has allowed the practice to occur. Now manufacturers are wising up and many are starting to code their coupons so that both coupons can’t be used together. Although the makers of Stayfree haven’t done this yet, I know for a fact that they do not want customers to use both (because I specifically called and asked them). Frankly, I don’t think any stores should allow this practice, as the problem ultimately doesn’t fall on them ( but on the manufacturers) when the time comes to reimburse the stores for all the coupons submitted.

I agree with you 100%. I have been “shocked” to read multiple comments on this site about people using BOGOs along with a cents-off cpn. You’re already getting a free item for buying one at the going price, so what entitles you to take additional $$ off? I use cpns aggressively, but draw the line at this type of practice. People who abuse the system will eventually kill the goose that laid the golden egg for the rest of us. I feel the same way about people using a BOGO cpn in conjunction with a store’s BOGO sale and expect to get TWO items for free. Many/most cashiers don’t want to alienate customers, so they’ll just accept whatever is handed to them, and override the computer if they must.

Thanks for backing me up on this one. However, I have to say that by not doing the store BOGO sale/manufacturer’s BOGO coupon scenario, you’re missing out on some totally legit deals! When stores have their own BOGO sales, they know that they are taking a certain financial hit (basically making one item free or both items half-off). That is true whether the person winds up paying for the two items (after the discount, of course) with cash or…. (Here comes my next point….) Now, say that person has a manufacturer’s BOGO coupon for the two items in the above store BOGO scenario. The manufacturer that issued that BOGO coupon knew that they, too, would be taking a certain financial hit (basically making one item free for them, as well, or both items half-off). By using both the BOGO sale and BOGO manufacturer’s coupon together, the original intentions of both store and manufacturer have not changed; the store is still offering one item for free and the manufacturer is still offering one item for free. Rather than receiving a cash payment from the customer, however, the store is receiving “payment” for the first item from the manufacturer via their BOGO coupon, which serves as a legitimate form of legal tender in lieu of cash. Neither party is being unfairly taken advantage of, unlike when a BOGO manufacturer’s coupon and a cents/dollars-off manufacturer’s coupon is used or (horrors!) someone tries to use two manufacturer’s BOGO coupons to get both items for free! Anyways, I hope my explanation helped!

OK, your points are well-phrased, and perhaps I will try to get two free items in the future. But I think that for the store to offer a BOGO ad, the mfr is discounting the item to them at the wholesale level, enabling them to offer the BOGO. So by combining that with the BOGO cpn, I would say the mfr is taking the much larger hit. In the meantime, I’m still trying to digest how RiteAid allows its clipout mfr cpns to be combined with a regular mfr cpn. I will start using those too, for sure.
