• 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

      This is the first time we are trying to use the coupons suggested by you… Its regarding the below coupon. You said that ‘Get Back: $4 ExtraBucks for buying one’. where will i get back? because i already paid in store $2.99. did you mean to say its a credit for revlon/CVS product? Could you pls explain me on this?

      ► Buy (1) Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick = $6.99
      Use (1) $4/1 Revlon Cosmetics CVS Instant Coupon (x3/4) = -$4.00
      (Scan CVS Card at the CVS Coupon Machine through 3/3)
      Pay: $2.99
      Get Back: $4 ExtraBucks for buying one
      Final Price: FREE + $1.01 Moneymaker (Reg $8.69!)

      So if I have more than one of the same coupon I can buy multiples of the same item as long as there is no limit per transaction? So the point is to get coupons and have them for when there is a sale as long as they don’t expire before there is a good sale? I’m a student in college and I want to start couponing for items that I frequently buy. I read your posts all the time but never really had the courage to start because I didn’t know how to receive the inserts. But if I want to save money I better start sometime! Thank you for all the videos and tips, it has encouraged me to start! 🙂

        Hi again! Yes that’s exactly right 🙂 We want to pair coupons and sales to get the maximum savings! Each store will have their own coupon policy so we also need to follow those rules. For example, Target has a limit of 4 of the same coupons per transaction. Couponing is fun and we try to help newbies with easy transactions. I suggest watching my weekly videos on Youtube where I go over the best deals of the week (I often cover newbie friendly deals too!)

      So the insert coupons are the same ones that you find on coupons.com? Both the insert coupons and the ones on coupons.com and other sites are considered manufacturer coupons right? So sometimes there will be better coupons on the inserts than on other sites?

        Hi Yanley, both printable coupons and insert coupons are considered manufacturer coupons. They’re not always the same, not all insert coupons will be printable coupons and vice versa. Sometimes there will be better insert coupons and sometimes there are better printable coupons, it just varies! Hope this information is all helpful to you!

      I’ve had Ibotta for a few years. I’m wondering if they changed teammates too..i only be people with direct connections (the person who referred you and the people you referred). When I click on account and teamwork and scrollto the bottom, I only see that limited number of teammates. I don’t see Facebook friends with Ibotta anymore. The same goes when I go to account and my earnings and scroll to the bottom. As far as teamwork notifications, I don’t have any notifications from my Facebook friends since mid June.
