Meet a Power Couponer

Meet Power Couponer Abbey D. She uses all the coupons she can each week and saves big on her total bill. Abbey clips lots of coupons from the Sunday newspaper and prints them from various online sites.

One typical shopping trip during the week was for 34 items that she had a coupon for every single item. These were various grocery items including food, personal care, etc. that she already uses and a couple items she always wanted to try, but never bought without a coupon.

The overall savings? A cool $35.33 off her total bill. That’s a 27% overall savings off of retail price and because she used a cash back credit card, she is also going to get 1% cash back on the total purchase.

Do you have a power couponer savings story or example? Let us know and you can qualify as an official member of our “Power Couponer” program that qualifies for lots of freebies in our community!

The key is printing all the coupons you need from the website sources we list and also getting coupons by mail. There are coupon clipping services (that we offer) where you can get unlimited amounts of the coupons you need so you don’t have to buy up all the newspapers! :-)

I look through several websites and use my sunday inserts that I get to match up deals I normally shop at Kroger’s where I live and they double coupons up to .50 cents. Always check the stores coupon policy it pays to be prepared. I normally save 40-65% each time I go to the store. If something I use is on sale I stock up so I’m not spending extra money. Try the coupon clipping sites and they will also have coupons not available in your area for things that will be on sale..

You may have to get the grocery coupons by mail option then as those would work fine.

You had mentioned about this: The key is printing all the coupons you need from the website sources we list and also getting coupons by mail.

How do you actually get coupons from these websites as they just keep taking you to more registrations and never get you to the coupons?

Also, what are the coupon clipping services that you offer?

Thanks,
Sunshine

How can you use more than one coupons on the same item. Can you explain to me please. I would like to save money, than you.

Sometimes you can depending on your store policy. If it doesn’t say “no doubling”, you can give it a shot.

I had seen one time on one of te extreme couponing shows, a woman who had bundles of coupons to take care of and I was wondering where
and when she recieved this great gift. This was stacked on her table.
I do use the Sunday paper but there areother places to go, just do not know where.

I shop at Publix more than anywhere since they accept competitor coupons like Target. Last trip was from $176 to $88 and that was because I needed some stuff that I didn’t have coupons for! Gotta love those BoGo’s!
I don’t clip them all out anymore. I have an accordion filer with 13 pockets. When I get my inserts from the Sunday papers, I just file the whole thing by date. Chances are that when the pockets are full, the inserts I filed first are mostly expired. The ones that aren’t, I clip if I think I’m going to get that product and organize those by category.
There are multiple sites online that tell you what store has what sales and which insert the coupons are in. Then you just clip out what you’re using for that trip. Takes about 20 minutes and then you’re done. Saves sooo much time and my family isn’t revolving Sundays around my couponing rituals anymore haha. They like that I have free time with them to do whatever now! :)

I work for a company who is interested in having a lunch and learn to teach employees about couponing and saving money. Is there some resource I can go to to find someone in my area who is part of the “power couponers” club who would be willing to come in and give a presentation?

Thanks!

I see folks with stacks of free manufactures coupons that have not been clipped or printed. Where can I get some of those? I donate many items to my church and our ministry based care and share. I also donate to our humane society when coupons are available. I am so frustrated knowing I could do more but I don’t know how. Please HELP me
