Here's an example of one that I did a few weeks ago:
- Almay Eye Make-up remover $1.14
- Almay $4 coupon off ANY cosmetic item
= $2.86 in overage
Since I had several of these coupons, I use my overage to buy some fresh fruit and yogurt.
Here are some other current REAL Money Makers going on now.
Note: Walmart's corporate coupon policay states that they allow for overage. Some will give money back or a gift card. I find it easiest just to get other items to make up for the overage since you need to wait for a manager's approval to get money back. Always print out their coupon policies and take it with you in case you have trouble at the register.
- Folgers coffee coupon is for $2.50 ANY Folgers item. The cheapest one is the small instant box $2.00 at Target or Walmart.
- = $ .50 overage!
- Eco Tools $1 coupon - use it on a netted sponge at Walmart which is $ .88
- = $.12 overage!
- Beach Nut Baby snack $1 coupon - use it on a $ .98 snack item (found them on a special display) at Walmart
- = $ .02 overage!
- Duncan Hines Frosting Creations $1 coupon - use it on a frosting creations packet $ .86 at Walmart
- = $ .14 overage!
You can generally print 2 coupons out from the same computer. So if you do each deal twice, that's $1.56.
Add another computer with 2 more coupons each = $3.56 and so on
Can't use all the items that you got paid to buy? Donate them to your local food shelf. The last few times I volunteered at mine, there was no baby food, limited toiletries and slim pickings on coffee. Plus, you'll get the tax write off when you donate. A win-win for everyone!
