Coupon ladies Charged!
« on: December 08, 2011, 09:25:31 pm »
Remember the Coupon ladies that literally use coupons to buy gross/material goods w/nothing but coupons. They showed 1 lady spend $300.00+ dollars worth of material goods & after all the coupons, she paid only 10 cents for her purchase. Totally wow right? Recently, these coupon ladies was charged with stealing. Charged for stealing the neighbors' newspapers, mags,business coupons in the mail.I don't understand why steal your neighbor's coupons, you can get free coupons in the internet & just print it out.  :dontknow:

On one of the very first shows of Extreme Couponing, they showed a couple of ladies dumpster diving for coupons.  I get that they have a desire to get multiple amounts of certain items but dumpster diving, that's way extreme.

So silly, agreed that there are plenty of coupon sites to get free coupons.  I guess you have to pay for the ink and paper in your printer, too much??
I think it's weird that so many of the shows I have seen people are "hoarding"/stocking up on such silly things, just because they get them for free.   I totally get it when you're buying things you need and will use, or giving to charitable organizations, but to have just to have seems senseless!

I am all for using coupons but I feel what she did was so wrong. Maybe those people that she stole from could have used the coupons themselves. Greed is not a good thing.

Omg!! I saw that too once. I went to pick up my mail at the post office and seen this lady digging through the trash looking at all these flyers that people threw away. To make it even more hilarious, she even had some scissors and I could tell that she had been cutting the coupons out. Seriously, if it wasn't bad enough to get flyers through the trash........you couldn't wait until you went home to cut the coupons out?? lol  :angry7: :P

Wow that is extreme desperation with maybe a little bit of OCD thrown in there. If they wanted multiple newspapers with same effort they put into saving, they could have found a legitimate way to get them!

I can understand why she wants the coupons from neighbors' newspapers, etc. Many of you mention that all she needs to do is use the internet. However, I'm sure that she already is using the internet to print out coupons, along with clipping them out of newspapers, peel stickies off of the items themselves, pull coupons from pads on the store shelves, etc. But the trick is to get coupons from many different sources, and then match up store specials with the coupons that you have. Even though there are coupons on-line, they may not be worth as much as one in the newspaper, or it may limit to a certain size which doesn't match what the store is running it's special on. Also, when it comes to extreme couponing, you want to be able to buy as many of the item as possible when the price is extremely low to stockpile it for later when the price is high. So getting the same ad insert from multiple newspapers allows you to have multiple copies of the same coupon with which to purchase the same item multiple times for the low price.

Now what the lady did was wrong... Instead of just taking the coupons without permission, she should have just talked with the newspaper owners and see whether they'd be willing to give her the ad inserts. Some extreme couponers with make a trade with their neighbors; they get the neighbors' ads and in return when a certain item the neighbor wants finally gets to a very low price, the extreme couponer will buy up that product and give it to the neighbor in exchange. Also many businesses (eg coffee shops, waiting rooms, etc.) may get a subscrition to a newspaper for their customers to read, but may not have a use for the ad inserts, and so would be willing to give to the extreme couponer for free if they asked the business manager / owner.

I think they are cheating the system. At least all the stores around here only allow one manufacturer coupon and one store coupon (which they rearely ever have) for each item. Most coupons actually say that you can only use one coupon on the same product. There is probably some special arrangement that the producers of the "reality" shows have with the stores, just for filming purposes.
