Part 2: The Anatomy of a Deal
In this section, we are going to learn the anatomy of a deal. Don’t worry, this is nothing like Anatomy & Physiology from school…lol.
This is a critical element to learn as this is how we write up all our deals on Mojo Savings. Once you learn to recognize the key parts of the deal, you will be able to work your Mojo and Save Big!!
Meow Mix Cat Food 8-lb bag – $3.49
Use the $2/1 Meow Mix coupon from the SS 5/15
In the deal above, the orange text tells us the name and size of the product that is on sale. The red text tells us the price of the product. The blue text tells us we are looking for a $2 off coupon from the Smart Source insert from May 15th.
*Note: when you see a $2/1 – this means $2 off of 1 product. If it said $2/2 – this would mean $2 off of 2 products. Some people get confused and think it means get one for $2 or get 2 for $2.
Dove Body Wash – $5.99
Get $3 RR Back
Use the $2/1 Dove Coupon from the RP 4/28
= $0.99 after coupon and RR
In the deal above, the orange text again tells us the product and the red tells the price. However, we added a green element which tells us that we will get $3 RR back when we buy this product. We are also told by the blue text to look for a $2 off Dove coupon from the Redplum insert from April 28th. We will pay $3.99 for the Dove and get a $3 RR which makes our net only $0.99 for the body wash.
Ragu Pasta Sauce – BOGO Free $2.49 ea
Use 2 of the $1/1 Ragu coupons from the SS 5/1
= $0.49 for both (or just $0.25 ea)
In this deal, we read that the Ragu Pasta Sauce is on sale for buy one get one free at $2.49. Now, with buy one get one free sales, you can use two coupons since you are buying two products. Which is why you see on the second line to use two of the $1 off Ragu coupons found in the Smart Source insert from May 1st. This makes our Ragu sauces only $0.49 after both coupons and the sale.
