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 :)
Posts: 152 7/24/12 12:15 P
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+

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.

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.

Not many available where I live or I would. Won't buy things just to use a coupon.

I do use them at restaurants. Rarely at grocery stores, although when I had kids at home 15-30 years ago, I used coupons ALL the time. I was not a coupon queen, but I was a coupon princess. LOL.

I use coupons for Metamucil, lean cuisine and some for frozen vegetables and cereal 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.
