Some supermarkets print register coupons such as $2.00 off on your next order of ten dollars or more.  If you know that in advance, split your large purchase into two groups.  That way, you can use the $2.00 off coupon immediately and generate another $2.00 off coupon for your next visit.  If your favorite store offers double or triple coupons, a $.25 coupon can be worth as much as $.75.  Even if you receive a coupon from another store that you do not normally shop at, don’t automatically toss it.  Many stores accept competitors coupons, so learn what the policy is at the store you prefer to shop at.

Frequently, stores offer rebates, rather than money off on your purchase.  Staples has an excellent program where you can submit your rebate on-line.  This is valuable because without any additional cost to you, you have proof of submission.  Stores that require you to submit by mail are less desireable because if you do not send your rebate with delivery confirmation, you are not sure that your submission was ever received.  This is useful information when it’s time to send Christmas and Hanukkah greetings.

For years, manufacturers and retailers have been promoting their products through the use of coupons.  They hope that by getting you to try their merchandise or service, you will become loyal consumers.  There are always at least two major competitors vying for your business and often as many as five.  As an example, Duracell and EverReady are the two major battery companies, however Ray-O-Vac and Kodak are always trying to increase their market share.

Most coupon savers are very well organized.  Their coupons are organized by category and constantly replenished each week as new ones arrive by mail or via the newspaper.  Then there is another group of coupons which arrives via Val-Pac or a similar company.  You will need a second storage place for those products and services. Every coupon has an expiration date so plan on spending one hour each month discarding the expired coupons.  However, if it is a Bed Bath and Beyond coupon, never toss it because the store will always honor it,   Treat coupons like money because they are as helpful as an inspirational paperweight.
