There are coupon hacks, and then there are coupon hacks that go beyond just how to use coupons for free groceries. We're talking travel, dining, and a bump up to your commute.
While couponing isn't new, it has changed a lot. Expert savers know that couponing is the key to getting the most out of shopping, with as many as 94% of consumers already onboard.
With the right mix of coupons, on the right days, and with the right items, it's not unusual for savvy coupon holders to walk away from a grocery store with a cart full of goodies that only cost them a few dollars. There are multiple benefits to maxing out those deals! Even if you don't need a particular item, consider grabbing the savings and donating those items. It might benefit others in your community, such as local charities, soup kitchens, and community programs. Or, donate the coupons themselves! Keep your coupons organized to ensure you're getting those savings before they expire.
Coupons are for more than toothpaste and laundry detergent. It also happens to be a great way to get to try out swanky new bistros or that artisan coffee shop downtown. Look for coupons that cover special occasions to make the most out of the event. Who knows, all those savings on the bill might afford you a few extra dollars for that epic gift. If you've been meaning to catch up with a friend, why not keep an eye out for two-for dining coupons?
Step aside, Disneyworld! Looking ahead to when it's truly safe to travel again, gathering coupons for your next vacation destination can be a great way to save on what will likely be a costly endeavor. An array of couponing and travel deal sites offer awesome coupon deals on some of the most travel-worthy destinations on the planet. Use coupons to your advantage by pairing them up with trusted old dining and grocery discounts to double up on savings for your vacation piggy bank.
If you can add it to your car, chances are good there's a coupon for it. From tires and rims to sound systems, seat covers, and everything in between, look for discounts to kit out your wheels. Coupons can also save you a chunk of change on your commute. Bus and train tickets often have coupons available, especially for those who buy in bulk. If ridesharing is your thing, scan those couponing websites (and credit card loyalty sites!) for coupons that either discount your trip, or offer a bundled deal that may include an event such as a show or sports event.
Coupons are easier than ever. Why leave money on the table? Just a few minutes each week can save you a bundle in the long run, whether you're shopping for life's essentials or a great day out.
