Coupon Tips

I will try to see if there is a sale, a coupon to use, and a rebate, for me a triple win! Also I go to Walgreens and get their rebate in the form of a gift card, you get 10% extra! If the item is free after rebate and the 5% sales tax in our state, I am actually 5% ahead! (03/01/2005)

Sunday Paper for Coupons

If you notice a lot of coupons you will use in Sunday's paper, buy more than one Sunday paper. It is well worth the cost, then leave your extra papers at a Starbucks, McDonald's, or give to a neighbor who doesn't get the paper.

Something to Remember about Coupons

They are a great tool if you use them wisely. Many times the generic or store brand of a product will be cheaper than the name brand even with the coupon. It pays to compare prices.

Check for Coupons

Any time that I run out of a product that I normally buy (brand name), I check out the manufacturer's website to see if they have any coupons available before I go to the store.

Coupon Tips

This site is great for using and organizing the coupons in the Sunday paper. It is not a coupon site, but is great for keeping track of the Sunday paper's coupons without cutting them out until you want to use them. I file each week's coupons in a dated manila folder, and then look up the coupons I want to use. (05/25/2005)

Coupon Tip

I save coupons and wait till the item comes on sale. My store doubles coupons so I usually end up getting stuff for free. I stock up on it to have till the next sale. This is a great way to save money

Coupons on Sales Receipts

It pays me to watch for local discount coupons to area stores.

Four times a year for about 45 days each time, a local grocery store runs discount coupons to area businesses on the back of the register receipt.

Two of the coupons are for local restaurants and while the amounts are not large (10% off to a Mexican restaurant and $2 off per entree at another restaurant), the discount is enough to encourage us to go when we have a coupon.

Frequently, we will team the coupon up with their featured dinner of the night, and the end result is that it more than compensates us for clipping the coupon.

I also frequent a beauty shop for hair cuts that offers a punch card, and when I have paid for 10 haircuts, I get the next one free.

Additionally, we frequent a movie rental establishment that offers a "rent-so-many, get one free".

Tonight, we ate at the Mexican restaurant with a discount coupon, got my hair cut for free, and rented a DVD for free. All that on less than $20.

Coupon Tips

A lot of people go crazy with sales, and buy things that are on sale that are not normally in their grocery list.

I say just use coupons of things that you normally buy that are on sale. It will save you money in the long run.
