The Holiday season is one of the BEST time to find great coupons at all sorts of places. When you head to the store, keep your eyes peeled for booklets, tearpads, blinkies and rebate offers for traditional Thanksgiving & Christmas fare. Here are some tips to make sure you don’t miss out on these treasures!
1. You’re Getting Warmer….
Don’t just scan the shelves for coupons- get creative. Think, “If I were a tearpad, where would I hide?” A-HA! That cardboard display! or A-HA! That Arrangement of Baking Supplies! Basically, if there is a display of any sort – strip search it for coupons
2) Variety is the Spice of Life!
If you ALWAYS go to Bi-Lo, and you’ve got everything they have to offer, shake up your routine a bit. Stop in a Dollar Store for toilet-paper or milk, swing by K-Mart for wrapping paper. No matter what store you find yourself running into, take the time to speed-walk down every aisle looking for tearpads and blinkies. I have even gone out of my way (to SuperSaver) on a hunch that they might have good tearpads that haven’t been stripped bare. They did!
3.) Ask and You Shall Receive
Occasionally, coupons are kept behind counters. For instance, sometimes the cosmetics counter at Walgreens has coupons that they haven’t put out yet. I can’t guarantee you they will give you one, but it never hurts to ask! Also, sometimes gas stations keep coupons behind the counter. Give it an extra glance next time you’re paying for something!
4.) Share the Love!
There’s only one rule in this Scavenger Hunt, and that is the Golden Rule of Couponers:
Take a COUPLE, leave the rest! There are so many of us, and so few tearpads…. please don’t be a “Scrooge” this Holiday Season!
