Do you use coupons when shopping?
Are you a couponer? Do you clip coupons and redeem them?
Yes but a little differently than everyone else.
First, if I get a coupon for toilet paper, I don't necessarily go and buy that specific brand toilet paper just because I have a coupon for it. I prefer a very specific brand and will not change so I only clip those coupons for the brands that I use anyway.
I suppose the real reason coupons are given out is to have customers try their products for a discounted price. In some way, the manufacturers are hoping to keep you as a loyal customer in the future.
I used to subscribe to the Sunday paper just for the coupons too but let my subscription lapse. The paper used to be about 3 inches thick because of all the coupons and now it's about an inch thick. Hardly any coupons inside that I use so I don't get the paper anymore. I get my coupons through regular mail flyers.
I know of several local merchants that will take competitor coupons. And, our Walmart in this area will match prices from another company.read more collapse
