Disclosure: In exchange for this sponsored post for the Community Coffee coupon, in partnership with Savings.com, I received a form of compensation.  However, all opinions and bad punchlines are 100% my own.

I’ve been quite draggy today.  I don’t know about y’all, but this whole “spring forward” thing is just BRUTAL!  And life just can’t slow down because my clock is a little off.  Kids still need to wake up and get to school, *I* still have to get up and go to the gym and to work.

Throw in the yellow snow* we get this time of year here in Atlanta, and I’m beat!  Stick.  A.  Fork.  In.  Me.

Calculating Sales Tax with Coupons

**This post may contain affiliate links. I receive a small amount of compensation when you purchase from my links, which I"ll totally blow on waffle fries and sweet tea, y'all!**



Calculating Sales Tax with CouponsWhen you use coupons, it’s important to understand how sales tax works with manufacture and store coupons.

Consider the following points:

    1. A store is reimbursed by the manufacture for the value of a coupon used. Thus, the store still generates revenue from the couponed item. Therefore, sales tax IS applied to the amount of the coupon.
    2. When you use a store coupon, OR when a store doubles the value of a manufacture’s coupon, the store is NOT reimbursed for that amount. Therefore, the amount for which the store doubles a coupon or the amount of a store coupon is NOT subject to sales tax.

Make sense?  Here are a few examples, to make it crystal clear:

Calculating Sales Tax with Coupons

Let’s set up a scenario, with easy round numbers.

  • Let’s say you are able to take advantage of a 10 for $10 sale at Publix, and you indeed purchase 10 items. Each item is thus priced at $1.00.
  • Let’s further say you are lucky enough to have matching manufacture coupons worth 50¢ for each item. That’s $5.00 in manufacture coupons.
  • If your Publix DOUBLES those coupons, then you’re essentially getting $5.00 in store coupons. (Look at your receipt — it’s always broken up as a separate coupon.)  This scenario would work the exact same way if you had ten Publix coupons for 50¢ off said item.
  • So, your pre-tax total is ZERO. But, because the store will still generate revenue off the $5.00 in manufacture coupons, you’ll be taxed for that amount.
  • Tax around here is 7%; so for me, I would pay $0.35 out of pocket for $10.00 worth of items.

Make sense now?  Want another example?

  • Let’s go to Kroger, where they also have a 10 for $10 sale.  But remember, Kroger doesn’t double coupons anymore.
  • Let’s say you buy 10 items for $1 each.
  • And again, you have 10 manufacture coupons for 50¢ each.  Therefore, you have $5 in manufacture’s coupons.
  • So for $10 worth of items, you pay $5 plus tax.
  • Since you don’t tax the amount of a manufacture coupon, you pay $5 plus 35¢ in tax (assuming tax is 7%).
  • For $10 worth of items, you ‘ll pay $5.35 after coupons and taxes.

Ok, one more example:

  • Take those handy-dandy Bed Bath and Beyond coupons.  There are generally two kinds: 20% off or $5 off.
  • In either scenario, since it is a store coupon, you are taxed AFTER the couponed amount.
  • So, if you buy an item at BBB for $100, and use a 20% off coupon (please, oh, please don’t ever buy something from there without a 20% off coupon!!), you are taxed the post-coupon amount of $80.
  • In the most of the metro Atlanta area, that means you’ll pay 7% tax, or $5.60.

Disclaimer: this is most certainly the case in the state of Georgia. I cannot speak for any state elsewhere. However, I would imagine the same principles would apply. There are some areas where sales tax is lowered or not applicable to food and medicine.  Any out of staters who can verify or deny this, I’d love to hear from you! 🙂

Which stores double coupons?

**This post may contain affiliate links. I receive a small amount of compensation when you purchase from my links, which I"ll totally blow on waffle fries and sweet tea, y'all!**



which stores double coupons

Which stores double coupons these days?  In light of recent news at Kroger’s allegedly lowering prices and -more importantly- ending their double coupons as of 9-21-13, I felt compelled to create a list of stores around the southeast that still DO double coupons.  If there’s a store I left off, please let me know.  🙂

 

Publix
Update 1/2017: Sigh.  Publix no longer doubles coupons in Georgia.  You can still stack store and manufacture coupons, but they are no longer doubling coupons.  I am deeply saddened by this news and their explanation, but it is what it is…  First and foremost, Publix remains the most user-friendly grocery store around.  Hands down.  While they have acquired the reputation for being “too expensive” – I certainly do not find this to be the case.  While I wouldn’t buy non-sale items from there, their BOGOs and sales each week, along side double coupons stacked with store coupons simply make for exceptional deals!  You can read more about my hints and tricks for shopping at Publix.

Target

Although they do not double coupons, they do allow you to stack manufacture’s coupons with store coupons on top of Cartwheel discounts, as well as combine with awesome Shopkick and Ibotta deals.  In my opinion, it’s worth keeping Tar-zshay on your list!

 

Bi-Lo

Bi-Lo doubles up to 10 coupons per transaction per day, up to 60¢ when you use your Bi-Lo Bonuscard.  See their full policy here and locations here.

Ingles

Ingles has a tiered doubling policy.  Coupons 50¢ or less will double: $10 transactions will allow for 3 doubled coupons, $20 for 6 doubled coupons, $30 for 9 doubled coupons, and so forth.  You MUST have an Ingles Advantage card in order to benefit from doubled coupons. You can read their full coupon policy here and find a location here.

Piggly Wiggly

Piggly Wiggly will double coupons up to 99¢, but only 10 coupons in one transaction per day per household.  Also only 4 “like” coupons allowed in one transaction.  For more on their policy, go here; find a location here.

Kmart

Kmart does not double every day, but on designated days.  They do not have a policy available online, but according to AllYou.com, Kmart doubles manufacture’s coupons to 99¢ on doubling days, up to 10 coupons per day, and only 4 like coupons.  Find your local Kmart store here — you may wish to verify your store’s specific policy.

Harris Teeter

Doubles up to 20 manufacture’s coupons per customer per household per day, up to 99¢.  Up to three “like” coupons will double in a single transaction.  Read full coupon policy here, and find locations here.

Farm Fresh

With stores in North Carolina and Virginia, Farm Fresh does not appear to have their coupon policy posted online, but according to several frugal websites, I have gathered the following: doubles 99¢ everyday, but $1 on Wednesdays; up to 20 coupons per customer, per day; maximum of two “like” coupons per customer per day.  Find locations here.

Winn Dixie

In Alabama and Georgia Winn Dixie will double coupons up to 50¢.  However, Florida locations do not double.
