Using a B1G1 Free coupon on a B1G1 Free Sale… how does that work??

how does it work B1G1 free

This was one of the hardest things for me to wrap my brain around when I first started couponing.  In Florida, if you have a Buy One Get One Free sale and a B1G1 free coupon you get BOTH items for free!!

HERE IS HOW IT WORKS:

“True BOGO” states are those that ring up one item at full price and the second item free on a buy one get one free sale. Florida is a true BOGO state but some other states are not. If you are not in a true BOGO state, each item will ring up half price.

When you are in a “true BOGO” state and you have a B1G1 free coupon, you will get both items free.

**EXAMPLE: Cheese is on sale BOGO – $1.00**
Item #1 will ring up for $1.00, Item #2 will ring up ZERO. When you present your B1G1 free coupon, it will take off the price of ONE item which is $1.00 so you will get BOTH FREE!

In states that are NOT “true BOGO” and you have a B1G1 free coupon with a B1G1 free sale, you will pay half price. This is what it looks like:

**EXAMPLE: Cheese is on sale BOGO – $1.00**
Item #1 will ring up for $.50 and Item #2 will ring up for $.50. When you present your B1G1 free coupon, it will take off the price of ONE of those items ($.50) so you will pay a total of $.50 and get two items.
