Doubling Coupons

Kris asked a couple of good questions that I thought others might be wondering about:
"When you buy the cereal, do they count the full $20ish toward your minimum $25 purchase, or do they immediately take off the $10 so only $15ish counts toward your total? Also, can you turn around and use your milk coupons on your next transaction right after the first? I was thinking of having an additional small purchase so I could use the coupons for milk right away, is that allowed?"
They take off the $10 right away (because it is a sale price), so you will have to purchase more in order to make it to the $25 before coupons. Yes, you can use your milk coupons on your next order, as I always do. So if you buy the 6 cereal and 2 cookie dough, you are going to be at about $16 after sale prices but before coupons, so you would need a few more items in there to make it to $25. Then you will take off your coupons, bringing your final total down to $15 or so.

Another consideration is that you may want to split your cereal and cookie dough into 2 orders, depending on your coupons, so they can all double. If you are buying 6 cereals, you may have 6 coupons for those (though only 5 could double, so make sure the higher ones are on the top of your pile). Then you wouldn't have room in that transaction to double the cookie dough coupons, so you either need to do those in a different $25 order, or take into consideration that they will be $2 each instead of $1 each (if you were able to double the coupons). Make sense?

If this is as clear as mud to you, don't be afraid to email me or leave a comment. I want to help you save money! :-)
