Buy One, Get One Free

For smart shoppers, one of the best ways to save your money is to look for "buy one, get one free" items when you go shopping, but like any other sales ploy, make sure you actually want to use the product before you buy it. Also, be sure to check your purchase receipt to make sure you get the discount.

You can find buy one, get one free items in many super markets and they are often advertised in newspapers, magazines, and other print medias, as well as on the radio and in television advertisements.

Buy one, get one free items can be found in department stores, super markets, convenience stores, hardware stores, electronic stores, discount stores, name brand outlets, and other retail establishments.

Many restaurants, regular and fast food, offer discount coupons and buy one, get one free meals. You can also find such offers at hotels and motels that may give a free night's lodging if you pay for a specified number of nights at the regular price.

Unless you already know the regular price of a product, you may want to comparison shop before buying the buy one, get one free item. Sometimes stores may raise the price on the purchase price to make up the money they lose on the second one you get free.

There is also the premise that you are not really getting one of the products for free, but instead, you are getting them both at 50% the regular price, which is another way of looking at it as catching it on sale.

Either way you look at buy one, get one free, in most cases, you get more for your money and it is worth making the purchase because you get two items for the price of one.

You may or may not be able to use rebate offers or coupons for those items but if you look carefully, you may find some buy one, get one free products that can be used in conjunction with coupons.

But you have to be careful because the store may post a notice that the purchase may not be used in conjunction with any other coupons, discounts, or with any rebate offers.
