Piggy Back Stacks

Stacking is using multiple coupons together to gain a larger discount on a set of products.  Piggy backing is using multiple stacks to extend your savings to other items in the cart.  There is always an overlap between the two sets of Stacked coupons.
Last week we had some new faces at our coupon club.  As some of our experience couponers were setting up their stacks, the newbie had lots of questions.  The following is an example of a great Piggy Back set.

1. We started with  a tearpad coupon for $1 on 1 Velveeta.
2. We stacked another tearpad coupon that said $2 on purchase of any 3 kraft products:  Velveeta, Bacon bits, or Parmesean cheese.
3. The couponer decided to buy 1 Velveeta and 2 Parmessean cheese.
4. We added (2) $1 on 1 Parmesean cheese coupons. 
5. Another member at the club had a coupon for $1 off Chips when you buy Veleeta and Rotel. 
6. This is where the Piggy back comes into play.  It tied one set of buys to another. 
7. Add in a tearpad for $1on 2 Doritos.
8. The ad coupon required purchasing (3) 12 packs of Pepsi.  Pepsi was on sale.
9. We had (3) $.50 on 1 Pepsi coupons.

We piggy backed the Velveeta/parmessean Cheese Stack with the Pepsi/Chips stack.  They were not required to run together, but the discounts were good and could save another $1 by using both stacks in the same transaction. 

Ideally, we use any stacks or piggy backed coupons when the items we do NOT have a coupon match and is on sale.  In this cart full of deals, we did not have a coupon for Rotel.  Yet Rotel was on sale, so it was time to buy.  All the other items were covered with a coupon, or had a regular everyday low price.

This couponer ended up saving over 70% on the set.  This was a good deal.  Many coupons evolve to piggy backing without realizing it.  They just see an overlap that leads them to the next good looking stack.
