It is hard to understand that you can walk out of a store with Free stuff. And, it’s all legal :) One question I am often asked to explain is a B1G1 or BOGO Free Sale, and how you can use a B1G1 Free coupon to get both items FREE.
Let’s dissect this so it’s easy to understand.
Cover Girl Products are on sale for Buy One, get One Free. The coupon to the right says that you will receive one Free Cover Girl Face Product when you buy any Cover Girl Face Product. However, with a B1G1 Free sale, the one you *purchase* is the one you will receive Free with the coupon.
The math works like this:
$3.49 Cover Girl Product
$2.99 Cover Girl Product
minus $2.99 value with Cover Girl B1G1 Free Sale
– Total $3.49 after B1G1 Free Sale Deducted per Advertisement –
minus $3.49 value with B1G1 Free Coupon (the register has nothing else to deduct BUT this value)
Grand Total $0 (or maybe tax depending on your state and goods purchased)
Hopefully that explains the logic a bit more. Feel free to ask questions in the comment section!
