Interesting Fact: The first coupon was created in 1887 by Asa Candler, a businessman from Atlanta, whose hand-written tickets offered consumers a free glass of Coca-Cola. Candler’s idea transformed Coca-Cola from an insignificant tonic into a market-dominating drink. The coupon usage really increased during the Great Depression.
Today, coupons are widely distributed through magazines, coupon envelopes, newspapers, mail, directly from the retailer and the internet.
Neely M I wish my area did not sell out of the sunday paper as much as it does. I have tried so many times to get a paper and always out. So I am left to print some from online but some are not the same as in the paper or same value.
Lei M I love coupons! The only thing I am not happy about is that the stores in my state doesnt really offer great deals. We dont have Publix. I saw a lot of deals for that store. Our CVS has a different price, a few cents higher than other states so if couponistas say it's free, I would probably spend a few cents on them. They say couponing is all about timing. So far I haven't really gotten a great deal though I have used coupons and saved me some money. I still want a big haul for some great deals. That is something for my bucket list.
Ray Wu I love coupons! I also like to combine my coupons with shopping apps to further save money. it's even possible to earn money sometimes after everything is done! Here are the apps I use when I shop to get cash back: link It's fun shopping now because I can save a ton and even earn money back!
Sarah Moore i dont clip coupons very often but they do come in handy when i want to try new stuff. some stuff costs more when it first comes out so having a coupon for it does make it a lot easier to afford
Gerard Radice The Sunday inserts don't seem to give coupons I need such as food a my family uses. Its usually a product I normally wouldn't buy. I use the app Ibotta which is a little better and requires no clipping. Sign up here! link
Brooke M If anyone recently bought Kelloggs cereal, it should have a code on the box, I entered it on the website and it gave me coupons worth $15. They emailed me them, and I just printed them. They are pretty good coupons too!
