I recently read some interesting statistics about coupon users. Having been an avid couponer for years now, the report that stated the majority of coupon users are in a higher income bracket and college educated caught my attention.
I learned a long time ago to be wealthy you've got to think like the wealthy (and I don't mean lottery-winner-new-money wealth or the credit-wealthy). Funny how I find out I'd been thinking and acting like the wealthy more than I thought. :)
Just the other day I snagged a great deal at the local Rite Aid with Electrasol dishwasher tabs. They were buy one get one free at a price of $6.99. So I snatched two and used the two coupons I had for $2.25 each. Toss in a couple of the +UP Rewards I had and I walked away paying only $1.17!
I used coupons for everything. From groceries to gas, dining out to entertainment, if we don't have a coupon, we generally don't buy it.
So where do I find these great coupons? Lots of places; for example, the Sunday newspaper, Savings.com deals, coupon train clubs, and Facebook. Just look around, coupons are everywhere!
So do you fit the average demographic of a coupon user? Whether you do or not, what's the best coupon deal you've got lately?
