Earlier this week, I was nominated for the "Sexiest Female Blogger" on the Best DC Blog. By the time I found out about the contest and my nomination, I had already been eliminated and identified as a "LOSER" in capital letters on the website. One of the voters suggested I get the axe because "coupons are not sexy." I disagree.
You've all been bombarded with the direct mail coupons from Bed Bath & Beyond and Linens N' Things. These coupons are good for in-store purchases only and offer 20% off or $5 off a purchase of $15 or more. These coupons may also show up in the weekly circulars in your Sunday paper. Thanks to a BB&B insider, I learned a few secrets about these coupons and recommend stashing them away whenever you come across one.
1. These coupons never expire.
Disregard the expiration date.
2. You may use as many coupons as you'd like in one transaction.
Although the coupons say only one coupon per transaction, you may actually apply a coupon to every single item in your shopping cart for a discount on all the items.
3. Both stores accept each others coupons.
Have a stack of Bed Bath & Beyond coupons, but like the selection at Linen's N Thing's better? No problem. Bring your BB&B coupons and LNT will treat them as if they were their own. You can even mix and match in the same transaction.
