Couponing 102

These sites are used by millions of families, not just low income households. The websites are simple to use and print free coupons from, and the disabled, senior citizens, and others can easily navigate these sites. Most of the free coupon deals can be printed right at your home

Here are some helpful hints for you πŸ™‚

Customize your coupons by adding expiration dates and BOGO. Some stores set certain expiration dates for separate items because the retailer takes a 15% saving on their code if you buy all three items as part of a single purchase. To get more savings, find a combination of supermarkets in your area that offer double coupon days and/or BOGO to get maximum discounts.

Ask for coupons! Companies are often overwhelmed at the thought of writing coupon codes. Many, however, can refer you to people who have coupons. Often these people can provide guidance for where to find coupons .

Always compare what you find on your favorite shopping site with another retailer as not all sales sites provide the best bargains.

If you are looking for a discount code or a coupon code to use on a certain retailer then there is an even easier way to do this and that is to simply visit the brand name website.

Coupon discount different types

estimated reading time: 1 minutes

 

Nowadays there are different ways to save money on internet purchases, including cash back or other tips you will find in this article.

 

But how do you get discounts on purchases made in supermarkets?

 

The solutions have not evolved too much on that side. Coupons are always the best way to lower your final bill. Here is a quick overview of the solutions available to you to find the best discounts.

 

Discount coupons

Discount coupons still have a bright future ahead! They are found in different forms:

β€’ in print advertisements

β€’ in magazines

β€’ on receipts

 

And they are not going to go away because they are a great way for brands to market their products at a lower cost to the consumer. You can now find sites specializing in coupons. All you have to do is select the vouchers that interest us, print them out, then present them during your checkout. Vouchers are for one-time use and limited to one use per ticket.

 

Discount coupons made available by brands

 

Brands also offer consumers discounts on their own sites. These could be coupons to print before going shopping, or promotional offers for the purchase of multiple products.

 

Applications

 

With the ubiquity of smart phones in our daily lives, consumers now have access to a whole range of applications that they can use when shopping in stores. The principle is simple. Every day apps offer discounts on a set of products valid for a limited time. Once you have chosen to receive a discount, you go to the store and purchase the product in question at the normal price.

 

Optionally, you can scan the barcode to verify that it is the correct product. Once you’ve finished shopping, you start the app, select the discount, then just take a picture of your invoice and send it as proof of purchase. The photograph should clearly show the place and date of the purchase. Coupon rewards you for your loyalty to your favorite brands. The more you buy the app’s partner brands, the more points you earn. These points can then be exchanged for reductions or to benefit from free products.

Discount Coupon Offers

Thus, 85% of consumers regularly use coupons there, according to the Advertiser Union, and more than half in the form of digitized coupons.

 

The only question remains of course to ensure profitability. Especially when the operations create a windfall effect by allowing customers to buy products at a lower price that they would have bought anyway.

 

A problem that is all the more thorny to resolve as the number of models is increasing, ranging from a reduction voucher to “cashback” – reimbursement of a purchase in the form of cash or loyalty points – through more traditional crossed out prices.

 

Some want to acquire new customers, others to retain them, still others to sell stock etc. Its current formula consists above all in creating a “buying frenzy while respecting the golden rule of limited time and limited stock”. With operations which either accompany strong increases in audiences such as “prime time” between 6 and 10 pm, or on the contrary revive consumption during slack periods “in April and October”.

 

The main reason I don’t like couponing is that I don’t think the time invested / money saved ratio is good.

 

To save $ 15 or $ 20 a week, many people spend long hours flipping through flyers, looking for the best deals, comparing prices, finding coupons (in flyers, newspapers, magazines, inserts or online), putting them together by categories, check the expiration dates, then make a shopping list according to what is more advantageous.

 

For me, the math is easy: if I made more money by working an hour or two more (even at minimum wage) than spending that same hour or two doing couponing, the couponing is not there.

 

If I’m shopping online and shipping is expensive, I’ll quickly see (two minutes of research max!) If there’s a code to get free shipping.

 

But I don’t actively seek coupons for everything, all the time, because I believe my time is better spent elsewhere.

 

The image of the couponing in the media makes me sick to my stomach. People who over consume in the extreme under the pretext that they are saving, that is crock, period.

 

There is NO point in having pasta for the next 30 years. There is no good reason, absolutely NO, to have such a collection.

 

Most grocery stores have a cycle of promotions that is fairly easy to follow, even without effort.

 

If you take a look at the flyer from the nearest grocery store every week, you’ll see it pretty quickly. Without having done any advanced study, I would say the cycle repeats about every three months.
