Manufactures send coupons for their products, and, in return, pay the store when you use one of their coupons. Manufacture coupons are labeled as such. See photo #1. The “MFR” label in the top left box next to the expiration date means manufacture’s coupon.
Store coupons are coupons for products within a given store; the manufacturer may not reimburse the store for those coupons. Manufacture coupons are labeled as such. See photo #2. In the red along with the expiration date it is labeled “store coupon”. Notice the store’s name is also on the coupon. In this case it is for the grocery store Albertsons.
THE RULE: 1 SC + 1 MFR for 1 item. That other words, one store coupon and one manufacturer’s coupon per individual item. Some of the best deals are when you use two manufacture coupons and two in store coupons for a buy-one-get-one-free sale.
If you have your own pointer and want to share, I’d love to hear it!
