Stacking your coupons online can mean big savings. One coupon code got Samantha Kruskol 30 percent off.  Typing in another code let her cash in on her Kohl's cash reward dollars and she added a free shipping offer. 

In total saved she saved $203.  But that's not all.

"When I've stacked coupons just in the year 2016 I've saved around $1000 which is pretty substantial," she said.

Liz Crawford, Shopping Marketing Expert says coupon stacking isn't just for in store savings anymore.

"This used to be fairly common with clipped coupons and circulars at the grocery store but now coupon code stacking is available online with many clothing manufacturers and general merchandise retailers," Crawford said.

Kohl's will let you add up to four promo codes to an online order and two if you are ordering from a mobile device. 

But a word of caution, don't let all the online discount offers bust your bank account.

"Be careful those extra items you want in your basket are ones you really want," Crawford warns. "Sometimes it's tough to figure out what an online retailer's policy is on stacking coupons. You may have to use the store's chat function or call customer service."
