I really should get more into it!  The best deal I’ve gotten lately was a turkey for $1.96, because i had a $10 off coupon!

Oh YES!!!

I am undisputed coupon queen. My husband momentarily dethroned me once before.

We use coupons at supermarkets, drugstores, online, shopping, you name it. We use it!

Some people think it’s a hassle but when you read the bottom line and you have saved more than you paid. It’s worth it.

Every penny saved is a penny earned!

I LOVE it when our local supermarket double manufacturer coupons.

BJs is great because not only can you use BJs coupons you can also use manufacturer coupons.

Ebates.com is the best website since life began. Basically you get paid to shop!!! You just have to click to a website through Ebates.com and you get a % cashback on your purchase at millions of sites! I’ve been a member since 2006 and have earned $274.24 Cashback. Just for doing online shopping that I already do anyway!!
For example right now Snapfish is at 11.5% cashback, Jcrew at 3% and Banana Republic at 8% cashback, Home Depot at 5%.

One of our favorite Sunday morning ritual is have breakfast and going through the Sunday paper together comparing sales at supermarkets to find the best deal. Then clipping coupons for those deals. I don’t honestly remember the last time we paid for anything at full price!

My credit card holder offers awesome deals sometimes on great products.  I got a Cuisinart Grind and Brew coffee maker for $35.00 through my Visa card, it was originally $150.00.  I am always hunting the deals and that includes using coupons where I can.  I have a few great sites that I go to regularly that offer sometimes great deals on great products.

woot.com

yugster.com

dailysteals.com

I know they are not coupon sites but my mom just got her 42inch flat screen for $299, just thought I would share with the holidays coming.

I thought I was good at coupons until reading this thread!  I’m definitely going to have to check some of those sites out… thanks, ladies!

My FH always teases me because I insist on buying a Sunday paper for the coupons and I insist on buying things with the coupons I do cut out… it has to be a pretty extreme dislike of a food item for me to blatantly refuse to purchase it with my coupon.  On the plus side, I’ve discovered a few new food items I really like since I was willing to give them a go at .$50 off or whatever 🙂

I LOVE coupons and deals!  I get so giddy when I see how much I save, haha!  The coupons here aren’t as good as the ones I hear about in the US.  We also can’t stack them (use more than one type of coupon per item).

@caszos:

hm bummer.

I’ve used Smartsource in the past. It’s free to sign up and the coupons rotate pretty frequently.

Slickdeals usually have coupons as well!

@tksjewelry:

I LOVE woot.com!!!

OneToolADay is great also. I kinda regret showing that site to my husband and brother in law. Husband + Brother in law + tools = Bad Bad Bad. 🙂

1saleaday is also fabulous!


Oh! Free Samples! I LOVE Free samples. Walmart.com always have great free samples. Typically trial size. But I’ve gotten a couple razors (Shick, Gillete, Mach, etc) for my husband before. And we all know how expensive razors are!!

Oh! For eating out. Restaurant.com!
There is almost always a coupon for the site so you can usually buy a $25 GC to a restaurant for $2! And they are on Ebates with a typical 10% cashback!!!

Hehe. I’m like a little girl with coupons. I’m literally jumping up and down, internally of course. 😀

Oh I love to coupon!  My best deal ever was few weeks ago when I got $150 dollars worth of groceries for $15 dollars.  I was so proud of myself.  I use http://www.jillcataldo.com.  She mainly focuses on deals in my area though.  For coupons I use the newspaper, the smartsource site, redplum site, coupons.com, and a couple others that I can’t think of right now.  I have a file at home that has links to all the good coupon sites.  I also sign up on company websites or like them on facebook in order to get more coupons.

Fiance LOVES doing this! I’ll show him this site today, since we were planning on grocery shopping tonight anyway.  We usually use the circulars that come in the paper and print coupons from the supermarket’s website, but these links are awesome!

I try to, but a lot of times I can’t find coupons for the products I would buy. I try to buy all natural cleaners, and and very picky about what foods I buy (no dyes, no chemical preservatives, no HFCS, no soy, no hydrogenated oils, etc.)

I can usualy only find coupons for
– Seventh Generation cleaners
– saline soulution for contacts
– OTC medicines (but the store brand is still usually cheaper than name brand with a coupon)
– toothpaste

Very rarely can I find coupons for food. Sometimes there will be milk or eggs coupons, but usually there’s no coupons for fresh produce or meat from the meat counter (the bagged meat, like bags of chicken breasts, usually have a “solution” added to them).

We try…and it is so fun to save, but we aren’t great at it.
