oh and Walmart.com now has 'online' coupons that you can print and take into the store to use. They still don't offer online promo's codes for item that you purchase directly via their website..but I'm sure in good time, they will too.
K-mart.com does offers promo codes though :)

all the time, both online and at retail stores.
For purchases I make online, most retail website have a 'promotional code' box in the shopping cart (with the exception of Walmart, lol..) so prior to checking out, I always make sure to 'google' up any promo codes available for that website. It's amazing how much you can save....even if it's just free shipping, depending on the weight of your items, you can save upwards of $40+ emoticon

My family uses coupons for restaurants frequently. At the market, though we tend to just choose the items that are the cheapest. If find that a lot of coupons are for items I don't really use.

Yes I do clip them out and make my list to include. My problem is to remember to hand them to the cashier.

Yes, when due to my mom sends me all the coupons she clips from the papers down in FL. I am not an Extreme Couponer by any means but I have taught my son how to use coupons for our regular staples in groceries and how to splurge every now and then on items that are not only on sale but we have coupons for also when shopping. I honestly do my best to stick to the list I create at home and do get excited when the "norms" for us are on sale plus I have a coupon to boot.

Yes, I use both; store offers double coupons up to $1 but sometimes the store brand is still less expensive than the name brand product using the double off coupon!

Yes, if it is for something that I use regularly and if the coupons are for our local shops. I don't go running all over town for the sake of a few cents.

Like Judy5900 I buy 'house' brands most of the time because they are usually cheaper than name brands with coupons, even when they are doubled. However, there are a very few branded items we do use & I search for & use coupons for them as often as possible.

Because we prefer to eat healthy, we don't frequent fast food places which are the only restaurant coupons I see.

Only occasionally, if it's something I always buy. I usually buy the store brand. Tastes just as good as the name brands and cheaper even if I used coupons for the name brands.

I use them occasionally for restaurants and VERY occasionally at grocery stores, but only if the coupon is for something that I normally use.
