McCain superfries (seasoned fries) are on sale this week, and it's buy two get McCain purely potatoes free (a gourmet frozen kind of thing). I also have coupons for both of those items, could I still use the coupon for the purely potatoes even though they're the free item?

I think you can--but this stuff totally confuses me! I'd like to hear everyone else understanding.

I don't see why you would want to waste it if it's free?

You absolutely can and should use it. It will give you the amount off of the total

for example. If the potatoes are on sale for 3 bucks a bag and you have $1 coupons for all 3.

3x $3 =$9
- free bag $3
-3 $1 coupons

gives you 3 bags for $3, if you didnt use the other coupon it would be 3 bags for $4.

make sense?

It would depend on your store's policy.

This is what I thought too. I haven't tried them yet, and I'm not sure of the store policy, but I'm really hoping it works. I'll be able to get all 3 for about $1.75

If your store allows it, then I would! Some stores around here would let you, while there are others that wouldn't. Good luck!
