A coupon match-up is when you use a store coupon and a manufacture coupon on the same item at the same time. There are a few ways to get store coupons. Target.com has a link that you can view, select and print their store coupons. Giant Eagle provides the deals under their e-offers link and utilizes your Advantage Card. With Giant Eagle you do not print the e-offers, you select them (up to 45) and they load onto your Advantage Card. You can then generate a shopping list or just print a list of your e-offers to remind you what you need to buy. These e-offers will then be deducted automatically at check-out when you use your Advantage Card and buy the designated item. Some local drugstores also have match-up deals. The best place to check is on their websites. If a store coupon doesn’t state that it cannot be combined with a manufacture’s coupon, then match them up.
For example, Giant Eagle has Tide on sale at $5.99. The local paper contained a $2.00 coupon and you select a 50¢e-offer from the store website. The Tide now costs only $3.49. Another example that includes a doubled coupon is a box of cereal for $3.19. You have a newspaper coupon for 75¢ and an e-offer for 50¢. The manufacturer coupon from the newspaper will double equaling $1.50 and combined with the 50¢ e-offer bringing the box of cereal down to $1.19. Remember e-offers and store coupons are not doubled.
