For the busy extreme couponer, the first place to turn to before your extreme coupon shopping excursion is to the internet. But if your savvy and plan ahead, you can make the deals come to you! By signing up with the coupon matchup websites you will know the specials, without leaving your computer, sometimes before anyone else! You will receive an email or newsletter with the deals and the stores offering them, which you can then match up to your coupons. After signing up, begin checking your email inbox. This makes extreme couponing much easier too! Most of the sites will have a coupon data base that will give you the exact location of the coupon (ie. Smart Source, Red Plum, P&G etc.) the date it was released to the public (ie. 7/28 = July 28) and what the discount actually is (ie. 2/1 or $2.00 off 1 product). Most are listed by either category, product name, aisle in the grocery store or by alphabet.
A few of the newsletters and email lists I am signed up with are:
- http://ocdealmama.com/ Chasing down deals so you don’t have too.
- http://www.pinchingyourpennies.com/ All the hottest online deals and codes, all in one place!
- http://coupondivas.com/ Americas Favorite Coupons™ – Printable coupons from your favorite brands.
- http://www.bargainbeliever.com/ Many deals highlighted will be nationwide, but there will also be some that are specific to the Phoenix, AZ area.
These are just a few coupon matchup sites and deal finders to start with, so feel free to sign up with them and watch your inbox for the deals to pour in! You won’t be able to take advantage of all the deals, but at least you can pick and choose which ones are right for you, without having to drive all over town, wasting your precious gasoline.
