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 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.

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.

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.

I try to take advantage of coupons as much as I can but, it only works if the coupons are for something you actually buy which is not something I can find every day

Today (4/8/15) I saved $12.29 at Giant with my coupons. I got a free pack of Seeds of Change rice and 2 free packs of Eckrich sausage. Not bad.

I got some coupons in the mail today from CVS. I just wish they'd send me ones for stuff that I actually use.
I got 2 free Reese's eggs today thanks to a ".50 off 2" coupon. They're $0.50 right now, so I got 3 and the coupon doubled to $1. :)

I like to use coupons when they are for things I actually want to buy. Many of them are for things I don't purchase. I use print coupons and digital coupons loaded to my loyalty card.

Barbara, My daughter drives me crazy thou. She buys stuff that we don't even need just because she has a coupon or buy the brand that I don't like because she has a coupon. For instance she went to the store last night and I asked her to pick up some toilet paper. She asked me to give her the money, so I sat money on the table and said get the kind that I always buy. It is an cheaper price and more sheet's per role and is a natural brand, plus it has a boxtop on it that I can use for my granddaughter's school. She left and did not take the money because she had a coupon for something else, that will not last as long and does not have a boxtop because she had a coupon.

I saved $5.88 with coupons today. I got a free box of pasta, a free pouch of Betty Crocker mashed potatoes and 3 free packages of Bird's Eye Steamers vegetable. :D

Tanya, Good for you. I used to get the Sunday paper just to cut the coupons and I used them. I got a notebook and put plastic card sheets in them to hold them in order. Now my daughter does it, but swares that she came up with the idea of the notebook and plastic sheets,lol

Thanks. I get mine online, from the local free paper and from one of my friends. Dollar Tree actually sells coupon binder sheets, which is kind of funny because they look like baseball card sheets.

Getting free items is always a boost to continuing with coupon use. I went to my local supermarket today with the new coupons they mailed me for April and like you I picked up a free Birdseye steamers, on sale for a dollar and I had a $1.00 off store coupon, a free naval orange, priced at $1.00 with a store coupon for $1.00 produce section item, and I paid .50 for three Gala apples after a $1.00 coupon on apples. Keep posting because it is of interest to me when someone saves money.

It really is a boost. You did really good with your coupons. My store rarely ever sends me produce coupons and when they do it's like $1.00 off of a $10 produce purchase. I only buy a couple of apples or pears at a time.

I love coupon and I think more people should use it. My parents tend to not use coupons when grocery shopping because they go to Asian markets for cheaper groceries. However, I always try my best to find coupons on some grocery and mostly toiletries or makeup items. I know a lot of time coupons only give you a small discount, but imagine you have coupons on top of giftcards from rewarding websites. It is a lot of saving. Every time I want to spend money on makeup, which I am obsessed with collecting, I would try my best to find coupons before purchasing an item.

My house mate gave me the coupons from his Sunday paper, so I clipped them before work. There were a few good ones. :)

I used a few coupons at the Dollar Tree today. I had a "$1 off 2" coupon, so I got one package free. The other two were "20 cents off 1 roll" Bounty coupons.

coupons.com has a new .55 off coupon for 7 Up 2 liter bottles. There are always sales at the big chain stores to use this type coupon. One example right now is Walmart: 7Up 2 liter is .88, so after coupon it is just.33
