Coupon Strategies to Save Money



The family food shopper looks for any way possible to cut back on spending. One effective way is using coupons.

There are millions of coupons distributed every day and the internet makes it easier to find them. This will cut your food budget by 30 to 50% - even more if you’re willing to look hard enough.

Even the occasional coupon clipper can become rather successful with a little dedication. You have to be patient, compromising and perhaps give up your favorite brand, but it can be done and you can save a lot of money.

Remember that coupons are designed to promote a certain product and get you in the store but if the item is not one you want and use, then figure out if saving money is more important than the brand quality.

Food coupons are found anywhere. The Sunday newspaper is usually the best source but also look online (including this website!) Some stores have coupons located at the entrance.

Organize before you shop and this means writing a list of what you need. Just because it is on sale doesn't necessarily you should buy it, that defeats the purpose which is saving money.

A favorite way to save money with groceries and even in other consumer shopping is signing up for a store loyalty card that usually offers coupons plus bonus points that are added up each time you shop. Using a store’s own credit card can lead to double the points and free item coupons. Be wary of high interest store cards.

Be sure to compare ads. It can pay off if you take a couple of minutes to do a quick Google search or a phone call to the store.

Don’t get tricked by the 2 for 1 marketing unless it’s to your advantage with a coupon. If you need two of the items, by all means buy them.

There was a time when shoppers experienced irritation using coupons by the grocer and hesitated to utilize them. They preferred not to hold up the line while the checker scanned coupons but it’s okay because it saves you money.

It’s quicker and easier with computers because all they do is a quick scan.
