Physical Coupons – What are they?

For many, there are two main reasons that they do not take advantage of coupons.  One of those reasons being that the terminology is an unfamiliar territory and it seems like a hassle to save 25 or 50 cents.  The second reason being that one coupon is only worth in many cases, 25 or 50 cents.  However, once you fully understand the functionality of coupons, it is easy to use 10-15 coupons in one trip and save $5-$10 on your bill each trip!  In this article, some basics about coupons will be provided about coupons and their usage.

Where do I get them?

Coupons can be found in many Sunday papers.  However, to avoid spending hours looking through newspapers to find one or two coupons you use, I recommend using a coupon-clipping service, like which sells you the coupons at pennies compared to the coupon’s value.  When using klip2save, I recommend purchasing a fairly substantial amount as they do charge a $1 processing fee on the whole transaction, whether that is 1 coupon, or 100 coupons.

What types of physical coupons are there?

In newspapers, there are generally three coupon books.  Their names are SmartSource, RedPlum, and P&G.  The abbreviations you may see in future articles (SS, RP, PG) refer to the coupons being located in these books.
