Do you use coupons?

post #1 of 34
Thread Starter 
Well?

I do. A lot of times, I just shop at Safeway because it is the most convenient. On Sundays, I cut coupons and use a lot of the coupons that I get in the mail. However, my girlfriend refuses to go to the grocery store with me because she thinks it's embarrassing how I hold up the line thumbing through my wad of coupons that I bring with me to the store. Whatever; I save an extra $10-15 every single time. A lot of times, I save 50% or more on my total bill.

Growing up, my family never used coupons, but for some reason, I figured that it was a waste to not use them. It is pretty much free money.

I don't, but only because I don't do a lot of grocery shopping.

When I was in high school, I worked at a Tom Thumb (Safeway) for about a year - there was a group of Asian women who came in together every double/triple coupon day, each loaded up a couple of hundred dollars worth of groceries (retail) and never walked out with a bill for more than $10. Impressed the hell out of me.

I don't shop at stores that have coupons except in a pinch.

I use coupons. In these times I think it's wise to save what you can.

I have to agree with the "no, but I should" comment as well.

I just never feel like taking the time to look through them and most of the time I'm not willing to substitute products I like for the one's the coupons are applied to.

Aren't there websites devoted to just coupons?

I use the CVS Pharmacy coupons, especially the $10 off with a purchase of $50 or more.

I sometimes use store coupons at drugstores and auto parts stores, where they usually have a stack of the weekly circular at the front of the store. I'll use printable coupons I find online too. I don't check the newspaper to clip manufacturer's coupons though.

ONline, I usually look for coupon codes. In person no.

Borders, the bookstore, emails me coupons all the time. When I lived in the States, I used those coupons all the time.

At the grocery store, not really. I rarely found coupons for grapes or steak or rice or other basic food items. It was always for prepackaged stuff that I don't eat.

I knocked $23.50 off a $74.00 grocery ring last week using coupons.

I have an aunt who was like that...before coupons couldn't be doubled or tripled anymore.
