Great Question.... BOGO coupon for BOGO item...

????

Question of the Week Question: I have a Buy One Get One Free coupon on an item that is Buy One Get One Free at the grocery store – what will happen?? Answer: I love BOGO coupons even if the item is not BOGO at the store – it usually always a great deal. Depending on the store and their policy – there are three possible strategies to maximize your savings by "stacking" the "buy one, get one free" offers: Scenario One : The register will charge full price for the first item and zero for the second item:  In this case, if you had a "buy one, get one free" coupon the cashier may simply deduct the full price of the first item, and you would get both items free (100% savings for two items).  Ex:  $4 item is on sale "buy one, get one free" You buy 2 items (full price $8), one rings up at $4 and one rings up at zero Your coupon takes off the $4 item, so the final charge is ZERO for $8.00 worth of items (100% savings) Scenario Two : The register will charge full price for the first item and zero for the second item: If the store has a policy against giving two free items, then you should purchase four of the items, with two of the items ringing up at full price and two ringing up at zero.  Then the cashier would use your "buy one, get one free" coupon to deduct the full price of one item.  Result:  Buy one item, get three free or a 75% savings overall for four items. Ex:  $4 item is on sale "buy one, get one free" You buy 4 items (full price $16), 2 ring up at $4 each and 2 ring up at zero (total $8.00)Your coupon takes off one $4 item, so the final charge is $4.00 for $16.00 worth of items (75% savings)

Scenario Three : The register will charge half price for each item.  In this case, when you present your "buy one, get one free" coupon the cashier will deduct the price of one item, and you will get two items at 75% off. Ex:  $4 item is on sale "buy one, get one free"You buy 2 items that each ring up at $2 each. Your coupon takes off one $2 item, so the final charge is $2 for $8 worth of items (75% savings)
