All the time, my mum is always looking for bargains and will take all her coupons with her, she loves finding a bargain and shopping, so she will use her coupons at different shops, she saves a fortune, and all those coupons soon mount up! I love it when she tells me just how much she has saved! If you work out how much coupons save you over a year it works out at a tidy amount! We also get points for shopping so you can save up for coupons as well! One Christmas I had saved up enough points to get all our Christmas shopping for free by using the coupons!

All the time, it saves so much money. At our local Tesco store it doesn't matter whether you have bought the product or not as long as it is an item they sell! As long as the vouchers you redeem do not come to more than 25% of your shop that is fine. One of my neighbours also gives me loads. Once a £40 shop cost me £30 because I used these vouchers. I live on a budget and try to save where I can. The money I do save I put into a demijohn in change and at Christmas raid it and its amazing how much is in there. This year there was £210 in it. Major saving on shopping eh! It is a shame for you that you haven't got that where you live now, lets hope it will be introduced there too. God Bless. Ellie :D

usually we use coupons from fast-food chains. they always do have this less-percent promo in every value meals or items they have. we took advantage of it sometimes, together with my friends. we would feast out of coupons actually. in groceries, i can't remember if i did even once.

I love coupons. I use them a lot. I always save them when I see some. It saves me money and lets me buy some other stuffs I need.

Oh yes. I love coupons. I always shop at stores that double your coupons and even triple them on special days. This really adds up to great savings when your done shopping.
