Some of my favorite deals to find in grocery stores and drugstores are Buy One Get One offers. In this video I explain the art of saving tons of money by utilizing B1G1 sales.

See the difference between B1G1 sales at grocery stores and drugstores, how to get two freebies when you have a B1G! coupon and more.

      Does Wal-Mart have a price match policy in writing anywhere?? It has always been hit or miss with whether or not I can price match another stores bogo sale. It became such a headache I got tired of trying. I would get a different answer from each employee on the same trip! “Yes we do price match at their price” or “Yes we do price match bogo at our price” or “No we do not price match bogos”. I would love to see a written price match policy. Is there one??

        Here is there policy for ad matching on their website: http://corporate.walmart.com/ad-match-guarantee

          Thanks Jenny! I guess that leaves out price matching Winn Dixie bogos. I’ve noticed they quit putting a price in their ad for most of their bogo items.

          • jessica

            I have never seen an ad that says “exactly” what the price will be. It just says “save up to….” so I don’t know if you can use that as the price.

              Here in Fla says they do not accept save up to… It has to say an exact price which no store advertise their price… I sure do miss cvs bogo on Shea Moisture cause i price match at Walmart & scored 2 for $7.00 instead of cvs price 2 for $13.98

              In TN they were accepting the Save Up to, but the cashiers had trouble with the math. I gave up asking, as it took too much of my explaining.

      Living in FL, I would gladly trade the “true BOGO” if I could have my coupons double. BOGO coupons are few anymore..

      food city says you have to buy 2 items when its bigi or it will ring up both at full price then give you off one free dont like how they do it i always do at food lion or cvs always free if im lucky enough to hit the sales with the right coupons thanks jenny you are such a big help to me

    • Seth

      What if you have a BOGO coupon and buy two products that are reg price (for example), does the BOGO coupon apply to both items and block you from using a second coupon or does it apply only to the free item, allowing you to use one more coupon on the “one” you are buying?

      • Jamie

        You can not use other coupons with a BOGO coupon.

    • Skirnir Hamilton

      Some grocery stores in other states do true bogo sales. In Wisconsin, Pick’n Save had true bogo sales and yes, I paired it with a bogo coupon. Turns out their policy didn’t like this, but they do have true bogo deals. I know Food LIon was 50% off, Walgreens I thought stopped allowing bogo sale with bogo coupon, but I could be wrong. I think Kroger had real bogo sales also.

      TOOK A BUCH OF COUPONS TO WALMART IN 37129 AREA. THE CART WAS FULL WITH A COUPON FOR EVERY ITEM. THE LOOK ON THE LADYS FACE WHEN I GOT TO THE REGISTER REALLY MADE ME CHANGE LINES,OLDER LADY WAS REALLY SWEET,HELPED A LOT. CUSTOMER SERVICE AND A PEOPLE PERSONALITY SHOULD BE MANDATORY FOR EMPLOYMEN THERE.
