I use them for some things, I don't bother with others. Allergy pills for example.
Coupon using is not a simple task. First is a tendency to buy stuff because you have a coupon. Soon your food bill exceeds what it was before coupon use and you have all this strange food.Soon one learns that the only way to really save with coupons is to use them only on what you buy anyway. Another viable strategy is to hold the coupon until it almost expires. Many times the item goes on sale near the end of a coupon's life and you get a double deal. I suspect that the current coupon craze includes a lot of people that I described in the first paragraph.I have noticed that with the craze of doubling coupons the manufacturers have upped the ante by making coupons good only when you buy 2 or 3 of the item. 55 cents off on 3 is NOT a deal! The item will usually go on sale for better that.
I don't use coupons because the stuff I buy I never see coupons for...stuff like fresh fruit and veggies...not canned, but organic fresh produce, or for buffalo meat.
There should be a fifth option. " I only clip coupons if it's an item I really think is a deal and is something I was going to get anyway."
Coupons may offer discounts, but they're also a form of advertising for companies. Whether you clip coupons from the Sunday circulars or print them from "Printapons", you'll see ads for hundreds of products in the process
today only some restaurant.com $1 for 25. Not all apply and will come up as $2 for today only no code needed to plug in.
groupon.comrestaurant.com- log in and wait for $2 for a $25 gift certificate. lots of places near here and all over the state.clickthecoup.comentertainment.com- yearly coupon book about $35. good until Nov of the next year. Starts coming out Sept. If you wait until the end of year sometimes $15.These are my favs for saving on dining out.
I am not a coupon freak like some that I know, but I will clip coupons and use them every time I go grocery shopping. Why not? To me it is like cash, since I am already buying that item. I usually save between $15-$20 per time I go to Woodmans.
