The Different Types of Coupons

There are several different types of grocery coupons that people can use. Each type of coupon offers its own unique savings, which can help add to the overall savings you will receive by using them.

The following are some examples of different types of coupons:

  • BOGO or Buy One Get One
  • Free product trials
  • Percentage Off
  • Set amount off (25 cents, $1.50, etc.)

The above types of coupons can be found in a variety of places. The following are some places coupon enthusiasts look for grocery coupons:

  • Manufacturer websites
  • Coupon download sites like RewardIt
  • Sunday paper inserts
  • Tuesday “junk” mail
  • In-store coupons

What Savings Will You See with Grocery Coupons?

Everyone is always curious about what type of savings you will see when you use grocery coupons, but the truth is it will vary. The type of savings you see from using coupons depend on how much time, effort, and energy you put into using your coupons.

The casual coupon user who just routinely surfs the Internet and looks through the Sunday paper can expect to save about $50-60 per month on groceries. That is a savings of $600-720 a year.

Coupon users who invest significant time and energy into couponing, who research sales at stores, scour the Internet for savings, and subscribe to coupon clipping services can expect to see significant savings. Some coupon enthusiasts have reported saving $300-400 a month just by using coupons and teaming them up with store sales. That is a $3,600-4,800 savings every year.

Next time you see that 25 cents off coupon for a product and don’t think it’ll make a difference if you use it or not, think of the overall savings you could see. Remember it takes just one coupon to start seeing significant savings.
