How to Start Using Coupons

 photo HowToStartUsingCoupons_zpsp99ltcty.jpg

How to start couponing….

The first key to saving money is to get multiple inserts of the Sunday Paper!
The coupons are usually with the magazine section that is wrapped in the funny paper.
There are three kinds of inserts: the Redplum, the SmartSource and the once a month and Procter and Gamble (P&G) Brand Saver.
Utilize Loadable and Printable Coupons:

Tip: There are not coupons on Holiday weekends.

Once you have your coupon inserts, now it is time to get to know the stores in your area.
Read the sales ad carefully, ask questions such as:

Does your store double or triple coupons? double means two times the amount of the coupon and triple means three times the amount of the coupon
At most stores, your coupon will be accepted at face value. BUT some stores double or even triple coupons. So a .50 cent coupon that is doubled will be worth $1.00. and a .35 cent coupon that is tripled will now be worth $1.05.
This saving can quickly add up and you may even be getting the product for free.

What are the maximum value to double or triple coupons?
In other words what is the highest amount of a coupon that will triple? Usually up to and including 35 cents.
And what is the highest amount of a coupon that will double? Usually it is up to an including 50 cents.

How many like coupons will double/ triple? If I am buying three toothpastes and I have three coupons for 35 cents each. Will they triple only the first coupon only or all three. This depends on the store policy.

Can you combine store coupons with manufacturer coupons?
Store coupons are only to be used at a specific retailer They can be found in the sales add or in home mailers. They are usually identified with the store logo. Look carefully because all in ad coupons are not store coupons. They may be manufacturer coupons. What you need to investigate is if you can combine the store coupon and a manufacturer coupon for the same item. Some stores will let you do this.

Do they accept competitor coupons? Will they take other stores coupons? For example can you bring in a coupon for a gift card with new prescription from another pharmacy and have the coupon honored.

You will find that these policies vary by store.

Take advantage of store loyalty cards.
They will help you save more money. But make sure you always give your card to the cashier first, or at least before any coupons. Sometimes it is the only way that you will be able to get sale prices or the double / triple coupons.

The key to saving money, is to combine the lowest sale price of an item that you can find with a coupon. Combining the two will provide the best savings.

Survival of Black Friday?

HI Everyone!

I hope you had a great time at Thanksgiving and spending time with the people that matter most in your life.  It is so very easy to get wrapped up in all the sales and hoopla this season brings that many may forget the actual Thanksgiving part of this Holiday.   Personally, I am exhausted and ready for a nap!  There were many deals bought and many more that were past up due to the time that it would take to wait in the lines for checkout.

Just to let you know….  IT IS ALRIGHT TO MISS A DEAL!

Enjoy your weekend!

Stores are opening on Thanksgiving Day so check the ads for the opening times.  Many stores also offer deals for certain hours, so double check the ads to make sure you are there to purchase what you want.  There is Not a guarantee that they will have the item instock, as may items are “while suppies last”.  Check the pricematch policies to help save you time and money at the stores.  Hopefully you will spend time with your family And get all the shopping done that you require!

This is were you can find the info on all these Black friday Ads:



JC Penny


Toys R Us

Old Navy


Plan your Strategy for Flack Friday Shopping

1.  *Do your research –

*know when stores open – many stores are opening on Thanksgiving Day!

*know what deals you want the most –

2.  *read the fine print – if the store will have 3 items in stock for the published price, are you willing to do whatever it takes to get
the item?

3.  *Plan your shopping route-

*Plan what stores you will shop – according to opening times and to Minimize Travel

*Plan where you will go once inside the store – what items do you want most?

4.  *Find a Shopping Buddy – things are always better when you have a friend to help out.   Plus, you can use the
“divide an conquer” method!

5.  *Be comfortable – wear comfortable clothes and shoes

6.  *Stay hydrated while shopping and eat before you shop OR bring a snack with you.

7.  *Be NICE – there is absolutely NO REASON to get in a fight over a good deal

If you miss out on this deal, there will always be another deal to come.

8.  *Be aware that you may not get everything that you plan. There will be
crowds and long lines with limited supply of products.

9.  *Have enough gas in your car so that you do not have to stop for gas during your shopping spree.  This will waste valuable shopping time!

10.  *Enjoy time with your Family and Friends at Thanksgiving!


10 Tips for Black Friday Shopping By Coupon Contessa, Nora Kapche.

Black Friday Deals… Plan NOW!

Time to plan for Black Friday!

Here are some quick tips to help you.

Research opening store times.

DoorBuster deals are usually the best value and are limited by in-stock items and times of the day.

Prioritize the items you want the most and go for those items first.

Walmart and other stores post the layouts of the items that are on sale.  While NOT all stores will be able to place the items where they are supposed to, you will get a general idea of where to find the larger items.  Note:  Last year, the Walmarts that I shopped did not place the items anywhere close to the layout online.  Hopefully this year… they will!

I have personally seen fights between people wanted the last item on sale.  While I can not stop the fighting that goes on in the weee hours of the night I can make you aware of the possibility of supplies being limited and out of stock by the time you arrive.

Wear comfortable clothes and shoes.

Have something to eat or drink to treat yourself for the hard work you are doing to save yourself money!  This could be a cup of coffee or hot tea.  Just something that will help you feel better about staying up all night and not getting any sleep.

Have FUN and Happy Thanksgiving!
