How You Can Save A Ton Of Money With Coupons This Holiday Season

by Hank Coleman

Can you be too frugal?Coupons are big business. If you don’t believe me, you only need to look at your Sunday newspaper to understand the power of these little pieces of paper. Coupons have even gained pop culture status with the new reality TV shows featuring extreme couponers buying hundreds of dollars worth of groceries and other items for pennies on the dollar.

But, you don’t have to go to extreme measures to make coupons, coupon codes, and deals help you and your family save money with coupons. You can save a ton! Now is the time with holiday shopping, Black Friday, Cyber Monday, and the like to score some great savings this season!

You do not have to go to such extremes to save money for you and your family. You don’t have to visit 5 grocery stores a week. And, you don’t need a pantry the size of the Grand Canyon and bulk deals to make couponing worthwhile for you.

Coupons aren’t just for groceries. Now is the time to save a boatload of money with Black Friday and Cyber Monday literally right around the corner.

According to NCS Marketing, a media and marketing services company, almost 80% of consumers regularly shop with coupons. Three billion coupons were redeemed in 2012, and consumers received a collective $800 million in discounts.

Scott Elling of CouponPal & 4 Great Tips To Save Money With Coupons!

Tip #3 - If you are looking for a great deal, use your shopping cart as a weapon. If you throw items in your online shopping cart and then abandon it, you will often get a follow up email from the website. A lot of times you’ll get a nice coupon along with the email reminder to finish your purchase. That’s a great deal and a great way to save a ton of money using coupons not even available to the public!

Tip #4 - Coupon websites like CouponPal.com of course! Don’t make a single purchase online without checking to see what they have for coupon codes and discounts.
