Couponing is a great way to save money when you’re buying things in bulk. With coupons, you could buy plenty for the price of less and walk out of a grocery with more savings and less expense than you could imagine. Of course, it takes a bit of a plan, and here are some basic steps to help you benefit from couponing.
- Multiple Subscriptions
Newspaper clippings won’t just do for coupon shoppers. If you really want to get plenty of coupons to use for your business, it is imperative that you subscribe to multiple magazines, newspapers and other publications. Subscribing to online website newsletters also help, including those that give you daily deals.
Understanding the terms written on coupons is essential to save time looking for coupons and categorising them accordingly. For example, a sale may only be a term to attract customers, but it does not really mean significant savings. Most terminologies used in extreme couponing are acronyms, such as On Your Next Order (OYNO), Buy One Get One (BOGO), and Limited Time Only (LTO).
- The Legalities
All coupons are regulated by law and consumers must know their rights before they could use a coupon. Sometimes, manufacturer coupons are only applicable for certain branches, or some managers can decline online coupons as stated in the fine print. Bringing a hard or soft copy (via smartphones or tablets) will help you resolve disputes with establishments as well.
