One question I keep getting asked lately is if it’s legal to stack a B1G1 Free coupon with an additional $/1 coupon (to use on the item you are not getting free). Quite frankly, I don’t know.
I have skipped around on the fence on this issue, but have never been able to stick on one side – which is probably pretty confusing for everyone. So today, I am making up my mind!
Here’s the debate: Should you stack a B1G1 Free coupon with a $/1 coupon?
Yes – You can use 1 coupon per item. A B1G1 Free coupon is attached to 1 item – the free item. So, you can use a $1/1 coupon on the non-free item. Therefore you are using 1 coupon per item.
No – A B1G1 Free coupon is no different than say, a $1/2 coupon. You wouldn’t stack a $1/1 and a $1/2 on the same two items, so a B1G1 coupon should be thought of in the same way.
My gut feeling is no.
So, from this point forward I will no longer be stacking B1G1 Free coupons and $/1 coupons in my match-up posts.
I hope this will help clear up some confusion and keep my blog more in line with honest couponing.
