Free always wins but sometimes it is worth it to pay a little for a coupon but when and how much can cause you some confusion. Sometimes you may think you have a deal and you really don’t. So when do I think it’s worth it to pay. Here’s two scenarios you decide what sounds better to you.
#1 (20) coupons to Save 3.00 on any size bag of Iams cat food These are selling for about $9.00 on Ebay
#2 (20) coupons to Save 8.00 on any Iams cat food these are averaging $35.00 on Ebay
They will both get you free cat food so which would you buy?
Think about it …
Did you pick the $9.00 set?
Most of you would but I certainly would not .
Here is why;
The $3.00 coupons that cost you $9.00 will get you (20) 12 oz bags of cat food for FREE at Target.
The $8.00 coupons that cost $35.00 will get you (20) 4lb bags of cat food for FREE at Walmart AND give you overage that you can take in cash.
The cat food costs $4.47 at Walmart. Walmart’s coupon policy states that they will allow you to apply the overage to something in your cart or they will give the difference to you in cash so (20 )$4.47 bags of cat food will get you $3.53 in overage per bag for a total of $70.60 in your pocket!
So ask yourself again which would you rather?
My scenario just doubled your money and got you more free food.
Sometimes the answer isn’t the the one that looks the easiest. Challenge yourself to think outside the box and make a deal happen that’s the How to Shop for Free way!
