Course Description

Every day consumers are faced with rising prices across the board from groceries to gasoline. In this difficult economy, it has become more important than ever to save money wherever possible. Because of this need, couponing has become increasingly popular with the general public. Couponing simply means using available coupons offered in newspapers, magazines, and online which advertise discounts on commonly used items such as things one finds in the grocery store. There are many different kinds of coupons including buy one get one free, volume discounts such as 2/$5, or a specific percentage or dollar amount off an item or the total bill at the time of check out. Coupons may also consist of rebates which can be collected by mail when included with a store receipt for a specific item. While some savings may seem to be relatively small, there are methods by which a consumer can save a great deal of money per purchase or accumulate even more savings over time.

While manufacturers and stores are keen to offer benefits to their customers, it should be noted that these coupons have special requirements and restrictions. Therefore, it is important that the consumer be aware of each store or online retailer's policies before attempting to redeem a coupon.

By using coupons found in magazines, circulars and through online sources, consumers have been known to save thousands of dollars on every day items, and in some cases, receive items for free. This course will give the ins and outs of couponing as well as tried and true ways of saving as much money as possible.
