Even when the food will end up free after the rebate, the amount of extra effort it will take usually makes me decide to pass the vast majority of the time. It just isn’t fun for me to gather all … Continue reading

Store coupons are created for the same reason that grocery stores have sales — to help drive customer traffic to their stores. While often times store coupons will be for store brand products, this is not always the case. It is possible to find store coupons for brand name products as well from time to time. The main difference between store … Continue reading

One of the most important aspects of this learning curve is understanding the different types of coupons that exist. The coupons that are most familiar to the vast majority of people are manufacturer coupons.
