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.


This is my second time visiting a Kroger grocery store and I am extremely happy with how much i've been able to save in groceries so far by just using their store card. Also, if you sign up for free at coupons.com you can add more coupons to your Kroger store card. Awesome.

I love coupons. Last week I saved a lot of money at CVS. I got free paper towles, 4 2 litter sodas, 2 packs of Shick razors, and foundation for less then $10.

I tried the coupon shopping thing for a little while this year, I found myself with more items that I do not use and less of what I needed to make meals, making my grocery bill alot larger then it should be. If I could find someone to teach me how to do this properly I think I could save a ton and would love to learn how.

I am a coupon clipper Cant manage groceries and cleaning supplies without them We havea coupon club and we always give coupons to who will use them Very benefical

I used some coupons last night while shopping at Giant and CVS. I always find some for my mom to use too since we do our "big shopping" together.

I love couponing !! Target & cvs are the best places to coupon because they offer so many great sales & so many extra ways to save !! I've gone to both before with nothing but a handful of coupons & never had to pull out my wallet.

I have to print coupons later. They have some good ones this week. There are coupons for $1 off a bag of Malt-o-Mal cereal, which will make each bag 25 cents at the Dollar Tree.

I love using coupons although it is not as popular here. Some drugstores give coupons for discounted items and some fast food chains give coupons for discounts and freebies.

I personally don't coupon much, if it's a good deal and something I'll use then I'll use it, but I don't go out of my way to find and/or use coupons. My Mom on the other hand is an avid couponer. She spends a couple hours a week finding, cutting and prepping coupons. She goes grocery shopping twice a month and the coupons really are a big help for her though. She's save a couple hundred dollars a month doing it.

I only use coupons when I am going to fast food restaurants. My favorite coupon is McDonald's buy one Big Mac and get one Free!

In the early 1900s, discounts were available on cereals thanks to coupons,Between 1894 and 1913, an estimated one-in-nine Americans had received a free Coca-Cola, for a total of 8,500,000 free drinks. By 1895, Coca-Cola was being served in every state.

I did pretty good with coupons yesterday. I got a free coffee at Dunkin and only paid $0.50 for a $2 box of Elio's pizza.

I just printed out some coupons from Chatabout to use when I go shopping tomorrow. I'm happy that they had one for OJ.

I like coupons. It is very handy and very helpful at times. I have a 2000 pesos worth of coupon which can be used to purchase anything at SM Appliances, and I'm planning to use it sometime soon.

I know it sounds weird but I love the sound of scissors cutting into paper! It means that I am about to save some money! Those words are music to my ears. Lol, I am an avid fan of saving money any way I can and look for the best deals whenever possible.

Does anyone know any websites that allow you to print coupons without downloading one of their coupon softwares? I only have access to a printer on my college campus and the school computers do not allow me to download any sort of software without an override from the IT department. But I really wanna start couponing! Like are there any sites where I can just like download a PDF and print it like that?

This week toothpaste is on special for 1.25$, I have a 1$ coupon so each tube comes out to 0.25$. When I manage to get a good deal like this I stock up until another good special comes along.

See that's what I wanna be able to do! I never know what coupons I can double or triple or whatever of which ones you can use more than once, stuff like that!

I like coupons and use them everyday. My friend said that I was crazy woman but I think it was save my money

I love coupons! If only I could find a way to actually print them out online without having to download the coupon thingy onto a computer.

I use coupons for Bed Bath and Beyond and for Michaels almost weekly. But for groceries I find I can save more money by buying store brands.

I remember my Grandmother having boxes full of Green square coupons something like green bucks she would have tons, Go to the store on one good trip and not pay a dime from saving all year.

i love coupons but i dont go crazy i use it on things we need. it sure does save money. maybe i should try the crazy coupon thing oneday. =)
