" They both received 6 months each."

Don't say that: 

" They both received 6 months each."

Do say this: 

They received six months each

or

they both received six months

We found this statement in a LinkedIn post.

It's tautology. That means that a sentence contains the same thing said in two different ways, but not so as to create reinforcement.

So, use either "both" or "each" but not, er, both.
