Technology has totally taken over all aspects of everything we do. So of course, couponing as well has emerged with apps easily accessable from our phones! Here are a few to get you started!
We provide you the oppurtunity to order coupons inserts (booklets) for several different areas. This means you will have access to regional coupons. (Regional coupons are ones that only specific areas receive).
We have made it as simple as possible to order.
Head over to our shop to see all the different areas we currently offer.
To order simply pick an area, click on it, enter how many “sets” you would like and then add to cart.
Hint: With us 1 set = 1 newspapers contents. If you are just starting out, we would suggest you begin with anywhere from 4 to 6 sets. These are good amounts for sales as well as keeping you organized.
We also provide exact previews (so you will see the exact coupons, you will receive) on our Facebook Group wall. Make sure to join there so you never miss out!!!

So you want to start couponing but have no idea where to begin… lets help you out a bit …
Step 1: Start collecting coupons. There are many places to find coupons. Coupon inserts are in the Sunday newspaper each week.
Step 2: Buy a binder and get organized. Organization is key to becoming an extreme couponer. Go to the store and buy a binder and baseball card holder sheets. These sheets are the perfect size to stick the coupons in and give easy access. Then start organizing the coupons into different sections according to what kind they are. Example: food, beauty, personal care, cleaning products and pets, etc etc.
Step 3: Research store policies. Every store has a different coupon policy, and it’s important to learn them so the coupon transaction is successful. Most stores only allow four like-coupons per transaction; that means there can only be four of the exact same coupon in one transaction.
Step 4: Learn how coupons work. There are many tricks when it comes to couponing, so it’s important to know how to use the coupons. Stores such as Target allow coupon stacking, or using two coupons on one item. But one coupon must be a manufacture coupon, which is the kind from the newspaper or couponing websites. The other is the store coupon, such as the printable coupons on Target’s website. Stacking those two coupons together when there is a good sale usually results in a cheap or even free product.
Step 5: Look for the deals. The key to extreme couponing is waiting for the right sale. Don’t waste the coupons on full-priced items; wait until there is a sale to get the best deal. Couponing websites like Coupon Confidants break down each week what is going to be on sale and what coupons to use; they are a fantastic resource.
