Coupon stacking online

Published: Updated:

(SWEEPS FEED)- It’s a baby present bonanza at soon-to-be aunt Samantha Kruskol’s house.

The only thing she liked more than buying all the gifts online, is the money she saved.

“It’s very good savings if you stack your coupons right,” Kruskol said.

Entering one coupon code got Kruskol 30 percent off. Typing in another code let her cash in on her Kohl’s cash reward dollars.

She added a free shipping offer and voila, $203 saved.

“When I’ve stacked coupons, just in the year 2016 I’ve saved around $1,000 which is pretty substantial,” Kruskol said.

Experts say coupon stacking isn’t just for in-store savings anymore.

“This used to be fairly common with clipped coupons and circulars at the grocery store but now coupon code stacking is available online with many clothing manufacturers and general merchandise retailers,” said Liz Crawford, shopping marketing expert.

Kohl’s lets you add four promo codes to an online order and two if you’re ordering from a mobile device.

Gap and Banana Republic have certain restrictions but their websites say “you may be able to apply more than one promotion code to a single order.”

So why are some online retailers now allowing you to layer in discounts?

“Consumers are beginning to demand it and retailers need to stay competitive,” Crawford said.

But a word of caution, Crawford warns don’t let all the tantalizing online discount offers bust your bank account.

“Be careful those extra items you want in your basket are ones you really want,” Crawford said.

Kruskol admits redeeming discounts is tempting, but she budgets enough money so she can spoil her new nephew.

“It’s awesome because I can give all the coolest gifts!”
