  • Safeway: Stores in the Pacific NW (Oregon & So WA) distribute double coupons in the weekly ad. There are usually 3-4 of them and they double coupons up to $0.50 in value.

Request your monthly check be mailed to you and cash it like any other check! No clipping barcodes or UPCs, no mailing or stamping an envelope.
  • B1G1: Buy One, Get One
  • OOP: Out of Pocket
  • I always ask my checker if they want all the coupons at the end, or as we go. It varies on the store and checker.

If they want them all at the end, I usually don’t hand them the whole stack. I will give them one set, tell them what it is for and how many I have (this helps, because the less reading and counting they have to do, the happier they are)

  • If you are separating your items into multiple transactions, just put one transaction on the conveyor belt at a time. If someone jumps in line behind you, just finish your transaction and get in line behind them.

  • One Coupon per Purchase: Refers to your ability to use one coupon per item. Meant to enforce the point that you may not use two of the exact same coupon for one item.
  • When your cashier tells you, “you can only use one coupon, because these say, ‘Limit one per purchase‘”, ask your cashier, “How many am I purchasing?“ NOT one per transaction


  • B1G1 free store coupon + B1G1 manufacturers coupon = FREE!

For the show I purchased some of my coupons (pasta sauce and noodles) from websites like collectablecoupons.com. I bought 40 of each coupon at about a nickel a piece. Coupon Sites:
