Are coupons worth the savings?

When it comes to saving a dollar or two many consumers jump for joy.  Can you imagine saving hundreds during one shopping trip? There are people who have created a strategy to the art of saving.  So you ask…

Are coupons worth the savings?  Yes! Yes! Yes!

Even when you add the time to create a list, search, cut, match and hunt at various stores.  In the end, it’s worth the savings. As we’ve mentioned before, it’s not enough to save, but to apply the difference (amount saved) toward eliminating your debt or a savings account.

Now more than ever households are looking for ways to cut spending.  They don’t want to sacrifice their lifestyle so they’re willing to use coupons when dining out and vacationing.

What is Groupon?

Each day, Groupon features an unbeatable deal on the best stuff to do, see, eat, and buy in your city. By promising businesses a minimum number of customers, we get discounts you won’t find anywhere else. Most call it “collective buying power!”

In order to notice if clipping coupons and signing up for sites is really worth your time, calculate your pay rate.  How much do you make per hour? If you make $20 per hour and it takes you two hours to plan and save then your savings per trip (when using coupons) should be $40 or more dollars.

We were told by a stay at home mom that clipping coupons and signing up for sites was the only way she could take a leave of absence from work.
