I have posted this before in our Couponing 101 category but I thought I would pull it up again for our 30 Days of Couponing 101 since it is so important to most couponers. Check it out:
If you haven’t bought coupons online yet, you’re definitely missing a few great deals! I’ve been buying coupons online for a couple of years now for two reasons:
1. Coupons are regional, so it’s likely your newspaper does not carry all of the coupons available right now.
2. I need more than one coupon especially if it’s an item that’s on sale or will be on sale, ordering online helps me stock up.
I recently tried out Coupons & Things by Dede and I was shocked by how quickly I received my coupons. In fact, I just ordered more yesterday, I think I’m addicted.
If you haven’t checked out Coupons & Things by Dede, I’d recommend you try it. My coupons showed up the day after I ordered them and from what I understand, most folks receive their coupons within two days.
You can actually purchase coupons on Ebay as well. Just a FYI, you’re technically purchasing the time the person took to find and cut the coupon so yes, it is legal to purchase them. Also, many people have believed (in the past) that this is a form of mail fraud but let me assure you it is not.
There is no law against purchasing coupons, not only is it ok to do it will actually save you a bundle of money. Enjoy!
