Shopping with coupons!

United States
January 5, 2018 12:17am CST
Over a month ago, I made an Instagram account exclusively for posting my shopping deals and buys plus a platform for me to follow/browse other peoples posts. I don't post everything I buy, just some good scores. And I am no extreme couponer or anything either just basic. I hardly clip coupons but if they come my way (mailed + mobile, I will use them). Today's buys are laundry detergent! I don't know about you, but my fiancé does laundry literally 5x a week and he's particular with detergent, too! Not to mention they're quite pricey but an essential. On the Target app, you can clip: - $5 off Tide Purclean - 20% off Seventh Generation Dish Soap - 20% off Seventh Generation Laundry + I had a free Seventh Generation Dish Soap coupon and at Target, I found a $3 off peelie Seventh Generation Laundry Detergent + If you text Target, you save $5 off $25 or more I ended up spending $10 bucks and some change. A successful trip and we're now restocked. Do you use mobile coupons? Where do you find your shopping deals from?

I don't bother with coupons anymore, but I used to be a coupon queen when the kids lived home. Well done!

@DianneN It is fun but I only buy essentials I need. I won't buy anything I don't need, no need for more clutter.

The only shopping deals I have so far are from my mobile company but I hardly use them at all. I have perks for having a platinum account but I don't 'usually avail them. Oh and I got coupons from my Starbucks Planner.

I get cash back from my credit card. Not all coupons I get, I use because some do not apply for our usage also.

@infatuatedbby My credit cards don't have cash back program. It's not common here including coupons.

I use Ibotta, Checkout51, and SavingStar for mobile coupons. Between the three, I cashed in over $600 right before Christmas that I used on our Disney trip!

@infatuatedbby I used to love Ibotta, but it is starting to get more and more complex as they keep adding more and more things to the site.

@Spontaneo Depends where you shop at.. Like I shop at Target. I have an account and I download the Target app, you will find in the app cartwheel and there are manufacture coupons you could clip and store discounts you can save + or pair with the savings for additional savings. When in store you pull it up and show the barcode to get your discount.

Wow, you did well! Yes, I use mobile coupons, but I also clip them from the catalogs sometimes. I usually find my shopping deals at big box retailers and the department stores.

Oh, I used to be so much better about coupons . . . I need to get back into that! I'm still the cut out or printable coupon person . . . and I have used the text Target when I see it (I should download that Cartwheel thing). You are the bargain queen!!

I am not a bargain queen compared to other couponers, they're professionals. I am just a little baby newbie! The cartwheel app is consolidated into the Target app now. No need for separate apps. :) I id do the text Target for the deal. Then I paired it with cartwheel plus cartwheel also has manufacture coupons you can load too :)

Sounds like some great deals. I find my deals various places. I seem to get some mobile coupons and also check stores for their specials.

You can print off the internet or send coupons to loyalty cards too like Vons / Ralphs

It is great when you can find a deal on something you frequently buy. I downloaded a site called coupons.com which I have started to use for my grocery shopping.

I get coupons in the junk mail almost every week unless it's a holiday. I also use Foodlion.com to put coupons on my foodlion card. Sometimes I use coupons.com, but I have use my mother's cell phone number to get the code to print them out because I don't own a cell phone.

I don' have a Foodlion but I know what you mean by loading to your loyalty card for the grocery store. Stores like Ralphs and Vons do it also =) Printing coupons is also an option, I agree!
