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.


I tried to get some coupons today, but the paper box was empty. I'm not sure if they didn't deliver any or if other people got them.

I got some coupons from the free paper and I'll be going through them today. I was able to take $7.50 off of my bill with some yesterday.

I rarely use coupons, I don't buy name brands most of the time. I wish fresh veggies and fruit had coupons. I tend to buy store brands and cook from scratch.

that would be nice if stores actually put out coupons for fruits and veggies. maybe if they did more people could afford to eat a little healthier

It really would, I haven't bought fresh anything in a while. I did give in this weekend and bought a watermelon and cantaloupe, it's been my dinner for two days now.

Sometimes when I have found coupons for things there has been a link to click if you don't have a printer and they will send you the coupon in the post.

I rarely use coupons now as I can not seem to find any to use. They are not in the papers any more and I do not have a printer to print off coupons.

I love to use coupons when I shop. But I don't like to spend a lot of my time clipping coupons. If they are readily available, I use them.

I used some coupons tonight and was able to get 5 free cans of Sheba cat food, a free tub of Helluva Good dip, a free cup of Yoplait yogurt and I saved $1 on my Hot Pocket bites.

Yeaaa Tanya, that sounds great. Five cans of Sheba cat food! My cats would love that deal. LOL Sounds like you made out great. I love days like that. I just got s a few sb's for coupon's I used a while back. Love when it all comes together

There's usually a coupon in the Sunday paper for the Sheba food once a month. It was "Buy 5 cans get 5 free" so I got 10 cans for $2.50. Guardian's a happy kitty. :)

Coupons are widely used in other countries, but it is rare here in the Philippines, you can only see it online or some fast foods give them away. How I wish It is also available here so we can save a lot of money.

I cut out some coupons yesterday and used one at Giant today for some Kraft cheese singles. If you spent $25 (which I did) you could get a 12oz pack for $0.99.

I have a whole stack of coupons for people in the USA. I am ready to send to you for free. All you have to do is let me know.
These coupons or for Shick Hydro Silk Razors and some other products. $4 and $1 saving on each!

I have gotten out of the habit of couponing. I need to start it back up because my stockpiles are getting low.

Mme couponing is one habit we should never get out of. Over time it saves us so much money. It's is astounding but my daughter in law took me with her to Target and she spent only $30.oo cash for a total bill of $127.00. Using coupons and apps. I now have the app. LOL

I did really good with coupons today. I was able to get 2 boxes of Suddenly Salad, a box of San Giorgio pasta and a bag of Knorr rice sides for free.

I love that I can use coupons at Dollar Tree. I was able to get a free tube of Crest toothpaste and 2 Garnier hairsprays. I got 3 booklets today that I have to go through.

I like coupons. it saves me a lot of money, I'm not into the extreme couponing like i see on tv but I still use them every now and again.

I am getting back into couponing. I think it can be very fun. I get very excited when I find a really good deal using coupons. Coupons can definitely save you a lot of money.

ive used coupons for giant eagle and got free meat ice cream and several other things i remember when thier card you would get free stuff with it

I love getting coupons as much as I love using them and getting discounts at my favorite stores. I hope more stores would give out discounts.

My housemate gave me the coupons from his paper and they'll be very helpful. I've been trying to use coupons as much as possible lately.

Just FYI if you have a Dollar General near you, they are having a sale this weekend, everything on clearance is an additional 50% off. Some of the stuff have had coupons in the paper in the last couple of weeks, so you can get some things for free or extremely cheap.

Using coupons is really fun. That's kind enough of your housemate to give you some. Have fun using them! I always try to use coupons as often as I can. I feel like a thrift queen in my own little way.

@Christina Thank you for the heads up, but I don't have a Dollar General near me. I wish I did after hearing about that sale!

@Fred It definitely can be. I love getting stuff for free or just a few cents.

I used coupons at Giant, CVS and Dunkin Donuts today. I saved $0.55 on dip, got a free bag of candy, saved 30% on notebooks and got a $0.99 iced coffee.

We don't have coupons in Australia.. well we do but we don't have anywhere near as much as other countries do. I wish we did though.. I honestly probably would be an extreme couponer, I mean it would save me a lot of money.

Yesterday I used coupons at CVS and Giant and my housemate gave me his coupons when I got home. I am going to go through them today.
