Meet a Power Couponer
Meet Power Couponer Abbey D. She uses all the coupons she can each week and saves big on her total bill. Abbey clips lots of coupons from the Sunday newspaper and prints them from various online sites.
One typical shopping trip during the week was for 34 items that she had a coupon for every single item. These were various grocery items including food, personal care, etc. that she already uses and a couple items she always wanted to try, but never bought without a coupon.
The overall savings? A cool $35.33 off her total bill. That’s a 27% overall savings off of retail price and because she used a cash back credit card, she is also going to get 1% cash back on the total purchase.
