Americans toss out $57 billion worth of coupons each year. But for smart shoppers, coupons are the difference between spending and saving hundreds, or sometimes, thousands of dollars. In the last year alone, 3.3 billion coupons were clipped, printed & scanned. Over the last several years, an entirely new breed of coupon clipper has emerged. Welcome to the age of the Extreme Couponer! These people aren’t just looking to save a few dollars here and there; instead, they’re looking to cash in on some serious savings. And on EXTREME COUPONING they’re doing it by any means necessary!
From dumpster diving for coupons to charting weekly store circulars, creating elaborate math formulas and stocking up on as many products as possible, with nearly 400 billion coupons printed every year, the rush of savings can be an extreme thrill for any shopper. We’ll see basements, pantries, and cupboards—all filled to the brim with row after row and shelf after shelf of stocked merchandise. Two‐car garages filled entirely with shelving units devoted strictly to box after box of detergent, cereal, diapers, and deodorant, razors, canned goods, condiments and toiletries. These in‐home set‐ups will be unlike anything you’ve ever seen.
There was the way your Grandma clipped coupons, and there is today’s EXTREME COUPONING—savings taken to the absolute limits. These people aren’t just your everyday bargain hunters who love to save a buck and we’re about to take you into their one-of-a-kind world, where they’re redefining the definition of a “deal” by going to any and every length imaginable to save. This is EXTREME COUPONING!
