Do you use many coupons?  I am having problems with stores NOT accepting the coupons that you print out from the internet.  It is very frustrating when you get to the checkout and they refuse them.

I use coupons but honestly have never used printed ones. I was always worried stores would not accept them. I've heard that Walmart accepts them but I haven't tried it  :dontknow:

I use coupons but you have to make sure they are manufacture coupons meaning that only big retailer stores like walmart will accept them, not the small retailer stores.

I use coupons all the time and for everything! I print out coupons at home all your box stores should take them, my local mom and pop grocery store will not take them.  I have a huge 4 ring binder and keep my book up to date.  Like at Walmart I would have spent 70 dollars but with coupons I spent 30 dollars!!!!!! Totaly worth my time and I do about 5 to 8 hrs a week on printing, organizing, buying papers ect.

I'm a coupon freak!! Walmart now accepts Web Coupons, the old Marsh's Supermarket in my town had a sign at all the checkout station stating that they didn't accept photocopies, odd coupons, expired coupons (duh!), and web coupons.

I agree mom and pop shops may not take them but bigger places such as Wal-Mart, Target, Safeway, have always taken my internet coupons. Hope you can find a store soon, especially one that doubles cause every penny counts :wave:

Couponing is being redefined due to the impact of Extreme Couponing Show. It has actually hurt the industry because you have rogue people that just went wild doing unethical things.
Your best bet for using internet coupons is check store's coupon policy online or as a manager at a store. A cool trick if you do start using your internet coupons. You can print 2 per computer that you have in your home ... one friend uses the computers at the library so she gets 2 per computer station. I have had great success with internet coupons. They usually have few restrictions and are higher value. Hope this helps.

Not sure why this is in the fusioncash section, but to answer your question.
Yes I use coupons, even ones printed out online. But only at Walmart.
Walmart will also do ad comparisons, so lets say you see your favorite body wash on sale at a different store in the sunday ads, you bring the ad (although they don't require the ad, sometimes it's helpful if its a large discount so there's no arguing), and any coupon you might have for the item and you tell the cashier you're going to ad comp that item.

My sister also does this, with her toddler and husband she was normally spending $200 a week on groceries/household items, but now she's spending half that and still getting the same amount.

Extreme Couponing show is a bit misleading because they usually only show people going specifically for a bulk amount of one or two items and saving a ton of money on them. But they usually don't show them doing their normal grocery shopping with meats and fruits and stuff.

There are alot of tips online about couponing, one is to contact the manufacturers directly and ask about receiving coupons, especially if you're wanting to try healthier/organic foods, just let them know "i'm wanting to eat healthier and was wondering if I could receive some coupons to try out your products". Other manufacturers have coupons already available on their website or ask you to subscribe to their newsletter to receive them. Some manufacturers don't mention this but if you give them feedback on products you've used, they'll send you coupons in the mail.

Other stores have more restrictions now, even walmart has restrictions. It's best to call the stores ahead of time and find out what their policy is on coupons/ad-matching before you plan your grocery trip. But it's definitely worth it, can end up saving alot and still getting what you need.

I use internet coupons as my local grocery store does honor them. Do to fraud,I am sure some of the smaller Mom & Pop canno afraid to honor them.

 It is a shame that a small group of dishonest people spoil it for the rest of us. :BangHead:

I had posted something like this before for another question, but I don't see how people DON'T use coupons. We have a family of 4 and my grocery bill is about $130 per week (and that's not buying everything) so coupons certainly do help!
