Not big on couponing?

4 0
Hello all,

I was wondering, are you guys not that big into couponing? I noticed that when I post manufacturer's coupons and couponing deals I get next to no clicks. Do you guys mainly do only online shopping deals? 

I have also noticed since I joined this site I almost never do any couponing--not that I have ever been a "extreme" couponer. It's just nice to have some coupons on hand that I might use or to buy something for dirt cheap and try it out. Even better are the money makers! 

Any other couponers out there?

When I go eat at Boston market I make sure I have my $2 off $10 coupon !

Big name-brand products that are likely to have coupons don't make up the bulk of my grocery shopping, and the brand-name products I regularly use rarely have coupons readily available, so I don't spend much time looking for grocery coupons. I get a lot of groceries from Costco, which doesn't accept coupons. The rest is from local grocery chains where I buy mostly weekly specials and store brands.

I love coupons. I use coupon codes a lot! I actually don't have a printer for printable ones. Maybe I can find a good coupon for a printer on here ;)

It looks like I was right about you guys not using many coupons. @fluffy, I get tons of personal care products free or for just pennies using coupons. Just as long as you aren't brand loyal! I did have to switch to body wash b/c bar soap is almost never free/cheap enough.

@VirginiaPeanuts, you will love printable coupons! especially if you have a CVS/Walgreens/Target near enough for frequent trips. Good luck on finding a good printer, I should look too b/c mine is a dinosaur :)

I don't think a lot of people want to print them off themselves or they don't have a printer??

I use coupons but don't look for posts about them here. I go to the sites that have lists of coupon match-ups with store sales.

I would like to clip some grocery coupons but we only have a laptop and i have read way too many bad reviews about coupon software, they say they bring in virus and malware and i dont need to catch a virus as our laptop is our only way to the internet. I clip the online coupons when they dont require the software but I cant when i am asked to install something.For the time being I only use coupons clip from the newspaper

@lancelot7562, I have read that too, but luckily haven't experienced it. I know some people will print coupons they really want at a library and pay the $.05 or so for printing. I usually do a lot of printing at school, too, to take advantage of my free printing! :)
