Have you ever taken the time to read the fine print of your coupon? Many times, it is confusing but, it can also work to your benefit. Here are a few things you might see on your coupon that could help you save money:

One Coupon Per Purchase: This simply means one coupon per item. For example, if you have a $1.00 off 1 Kellogg's Cereal coupon, then you can use it on 1 box of cereal. If you happen to have 3 of those coupons, then you'll need to buy 3 boxes of cereal.

One Coupon per Transaction: This means one coupon per your entire order. These are typically the $5 off the purchase of $50 coupons and such. They don't want you to stack those up so most stores will only allow one per your transaction.

Size Restrictions & Details: The pictures on a coupon can be deceiving, always read the fine print. You'll find out the exact size and type of product you need to buy in order to save money. What's even better is that you may find out you don't have any size restrictions. That could mean better savings if you use the coupon on a trial size item. 

Reading the fine print could really get you more savings than you think. It's also important to know that using a coupon for something than other what it is intended for is fraud and the store will not get redeemed. Therefore, it is always important that we use the coupons correctly.
