Courtesy of my friend who helped me in my battle against sugar ants, I’ve been dipping my toe into the couponing ocean. I subscribe to a couple of email lists and started getting Sunday papers, looking for ways to carve a few bucks off my list each week.
TLC isn’t exactly going to be calling me tomorrow (no stockpile!) but in my last couple of trips I’ve managed to save near $40. That, my friends, is no chump change.
Recently, in reading one of my daily coupon emails, I saw an ad for a coupon clipping site. I figured I would check it out, but because I’m not a stockpiler I assumed it wouldn’t really be geared toward the small-timer. I was curious, more than anything.
I clicked over to Klip2Save.com and had a look, knowing NOTHING about coupon clipping services beyond the obvious. At the website I could find coupons I would use, in the quantities that I wanted, and I didn’t have to get anything I didn’t want or might not use.
Bottom Line? I could get five windshield wiper blade coupons (setting up both cars for new blades), and just one Pyrex coupon (setting me up for a new microwavable measuring cup).
I started combing over the Klip2save website and putting coupons in my cart on Thursday. As often happens, I got distracted and forgot about it. Friday morning, I remembered the coupon site, and came back to it. My cart was still accessible, so I finished selecting my coupons and paid via Paypal.
Monday at noon, my coupons were waiting in my mailbox. You don’t get quicker than that for $1 shipping/processing from Tennessee to New Hampshire.
The prices vary on the coupons, and it is important to note that you are paying for the SERVICE, not the COUPONS. For five dollars delivered, I got a stack of coupons that would have been tricky for me to ferret out of my own newspapers with such ease, especially since some coupons were never in my circulars. That is five dollars well spent in my book.
I was impressed with the professionalism of the business. I received prompt email updates apprising me of my order status. I was thrilled to see the coupons in my mailbox 72 hours later (which included a Sunday). I went to the full page site (I had previously only seen the mobile version) and found it to be up-to-date and fresh, as opposed to the three-column WordPress site with too many keywords crammed in the header that seems to be a favorite of some other clipping sites I checked out later.
All in all, I ordered $42.50 in coupons for a grand total of $4.96. Now, ordinarily if I find that many coupons in the Sunday papers, I may or may not use them all–I clip a lot of ‘just-in-case-its-on-sale-too’ coupons.
But these? I will use Every. Single. One. of these coupons.
If you are just starting off in the world of Coupon Clipping, and wish you could find more relevant coupons than the ones in your Sunday paper, without running hither and yon to get your hands on them, you ought to give Klip2Save.com a shot.
