More and more households are learning how to use coupons to save money during difficult
economic times. The effort is minimal and the rewards are great. You can save hundreds of
dollars families can then use in other ways. A few plain and simple tips can have you shopping
like an expert in minutes.
"Buy One, Get One Free" deals - Two coupons can be used on these specials thereby doubling
your savings. Most stores actually charge you half price for the item. Using two coupons is
perfectly legal because you are actually purchasing two items. So make sure you have two
coupons on items you plan on purchasing.
Shopper Savings Cards - More and more retailers are issuing shopper cards that give addition
savings on sale items. Each program differs so apply for all the cards you can. The rewards
offered can be generous. You can earn points, credits and coupons that, when used, can allow for
additional savings. You can combine these rewards with coupons you already have to increase
Price Matching - You don't have to go to a million different stores to get savings. A lot of retailers
will price match. Make sure you take your ads with you when you shop. All you have to do is show
the ad as proof and the sale price will be honored. This will save you money on not only the items
you purchase but gas as well. No need to drive to multiple stores when you can get all your
shopping done at one store
Retail store coupons - Often retail store ads will contain coupons that can be used for additional
savings. Check the retailer websites for coupons as well. These can be combined with
manufacturer's coupons to multiply your savings.
Combining Coupons - Combining manufactures' coupons, reward points and store coupons is a
great way to save cash. If you combine a manufactures' coupon with a store coupon and use
reward points to pay for it you often get the item for free.
Saving money is something we all enjoy. Getting something for free is even better. With a little
effort, most consumers can find a coupon for just about anything they normally purchase. Using
these tips about how to use coupons to save money will increase your savings and cut your
Discount coupons have always been a popular means to save and get the best value for your
hard earned money. Variously called rebates, discounts or cash back coupons, this piece of 20th
century marketing phenomenon has its roots in the early 1900s. Now it enters the internet age
with just as much following as it has always been especially for the masses.
Coupons are known to help generate in excess of $8 billion dollars annually in merchandise sales
in the US alone. A tenfold amount would not be inconceivable for the rest of the capitalist world.
They have been widely available in newspapers, magazines, promotional flyers and leaflets and
are often sent through mail with what has been derisively called junk mail. And almost all credit
card companies occasionally send their statements with some promotional coupons as well.
These days, with internet commerce fast becoming a major distribution mode for merchants and
retail shops, it was only a matter of time for the ubiquitous discount coupons to start flooding
cyberspace. These internet coupons come in two flavors. One is the traditional coupon you can
print out and the other is a coded set of numbers that you can use only for online shopping. The
former offers an advantage to merchants in that they carry no postal and printing costs which are
instead borne by the buyers who print the coupons to avail themselves of the discounts in brick
and mortar shops. The latter is the true online coupon scheme often referred to as promotional
codes, discount codes, shopping codes, coupon codes, voucher codes, etc.
Online coupons, as they are now called, have caused an increase in the growth of online sales
with both seasoned and new internet shoppers. These coupons easily attract new internet visitors
to do their shopping online. It would really be foolish for a vendor to ignore the advantage of
online coupons. There are new discount coupons coming out of the internet that enable you to get
not only great bargains, but also incentives such as free shipping within continental USA or
discounts for door-to-door service to select cities.
Quite a number of these coupons come with the purchase of certain products or services, pointing
and encouraging the online customer to other new or related products online. First time
customers also get substantial discounts on some shopping portals as well as free gifts or
promotional giveaways and samplers.
The value that one gets using online coupons is real. Internet shopping allows manufacturers to
cut short their distribution route and gain enough margins to offer not only lower price tags online,
but to give discounts you wouldn't get in a traditional outlet.
According to one popular magazine, "Nearly one-third of Internet users are pointing and clipping
their way to savings via online coupons." And that's sure to grow in no time. Almost all
commercials sites from consumer brands like Apple, Sony, Levis, Gap, etc. do have promotional
incentives on their shopping portals. Just one visit at Amazon to check on some consumer goods
will lead to these discount coupons and other promotional schemes. One Google search on the
term "online coupons" and you get nearly 7 million search results.
One interesting site to visit is checksavebuy.com which is sure to delight coupon and bargain
hunters worldwide. The website's tagline "simply saving you money" is perhaps an
understatement with all the coupons you can have from thousands of merchandise brands and
services from A to Z. The site is easy to navigate and has links to some of the more popular
shopping sites. Getting to the site is fast and once there, you either can browse through their
category section or just engage their search engine for any specific brand or product name.
The category section of checksavebuy is a real convenience when you want to check which
online stores offer the products or services that you have in mind. Want to buy a computer
peripheral online? Just get to the computer category and visit the sites under it. The Coupon
section gives you the entire list of stores offering discounts on many products and services. And
this is especially useful when you are looking for real bargains on the net.
