  • How to Coupon

    Ready to Save Money? C’mon in!

    Welcome to the school of couponing. 🙂 Where you can get ramped up and learn the basics of Extreme Couponing in an hour or two. This introduction course was written for newbie couponers, keeping it as simple as possible.

    I know that starting out as a new couponer can be frustrating. What do those symbols and lingo mean? Where do I get coupons? How do I start?

    This quick Couponing 101 course is designed to answer all these questions. By the end of this class, you will have everything you need to do your first couponing run. I’m excited! Are you? My goal is to get you ramped up in less than a day (but you can go at your own speed), and you’ll be on your way to saving money, like a pro!


    As with learning any new skill, there is no better teacher than practical experience. They say that if you just read something, you’ll only retain 10% of the information. But if you take action on it, you will retain over 70% of what you learned. As such, at the end of each section, I have a small list of homework for you, little action items you can do to solidify what you’ve learned.

    Ready? You can do this! Let’s get started:

    Lesson 1. Couponing 101: Overview & Coupon Stacking

    Lesson 2. Couponing 101: Where to Get Coupons?

    Lesson 3. How to Read Coupon Lingo?

    Lesson 4. Step One: Get Inserts & Coupons

    Lesson 5. Step Two: Sign Up Reward Programs

    Lesson 6. Step Three: Find Sales & Deals

    Lesson 7. Step Four: Do it! + Newbie Tips

      Hi TIna,
      I wrote to you before on how two local Targets would not accept more than one coupon reading “one coupon per purchase” on an order that I would try to combine with the $5.00 gift card. Target’s policy does state that it is one coupon per item, however I contacted their office and they said they could not do anything about it. That local management had a right to limit the use of coupons or make any exceptions from policy.
      Also just found out today that our local CVS (Chicago area) is also limiting the number of coupons and will only honor one.
      The store manager said too many people were taking advantage of the sales and clearing out their shelves.

      Anyone else experiencing this?

      Hi Tina,
      I was wondering what the average upfront cost is for someone who’s just starting out. I bought 5 of last week’s Sunday papers, got my printed coupons and signed up for all of the rebate apps. My first trip cost me about $100 even though I know that I will get a lot of money back in rebates and saved a lot from the coupons, at what point do you “really” start to see those savings come in (aka- go into a store with $20 and come out with $80 worth of merchandise)?

        Hi Tia. When you very first start your up front costs are a little more. What most couponers like to do is earn rewards at each of the stores and then use those rewards to make their purchases. This is called rolling and it saves you a lot of money in out of pocket expenses. Hope that helps. 🙂
