So often I hear “We can’t Extreme Coupon in Canada like they do in the States, so what’s the use?” (and by ‘so often’, I mean the day after each new episode of TLC’s Extreme Couponing Show which highlights couponers south of the border who walk out of the store with a thousand dollars in groceries for just pennies). This “Go extreme or Go home” attitude kind of drives me batty! Afterall, if we all gave up on things after comparing our lives to reality tv:
- no one would take a vacation unless they could win a million dollars in a race around the world
- no one would date unless they could live in mansion and win roses from the eligible bachelor
- and no one would try to address conflicts with colleagues unless they could vote them off the island!
The reality of couponing in Canada is that we can save on groceries, clothing and household purchases with coupons every day. Even if you don’t receive the newspaper inserts (I don’t), there are numerous coupon houses that will send coupons by mail directly to your home for FREE, a vast selection of printable coupons, and increasingly more mobile coupons that you can “flash at the cash” using your smartphone or mobile device.
For those of you with a little more time to devote to saving money, there are tonnes of facebook offers for coupons and free samples which often have high value coupons inside. And while some coupons are only for $1 or $2 OFF, there are ways to stretch the value of a coupon to make a bigger dent in your bill by combining it with sales and/or store perks.
Nothing says you have to dive in and go to “extreme” measures: most members of the CanadianCoupons.net community save between 25-50% on their weekly groceries for very little time spent on collecting & organizing their coupons. They rely on our website, RSS feed, daily e-newsletter and facebook community with over 20,000 members to stay informed about all of the latest coupons and offers for Canadians. You can see pictures of some of the coupons and samples that we receive in the mail in our regular Mail Call posts.
CanadianCoupons.net is our website with links to coupons to order by mail or print, on-line contests to enter, and FREE sample programs for Canadians. We don’t mail the coupons or samples out ourselves: once you’ve read the instructions and click on the link we provide, you’ll be directed to the brand/company site in a separate window. Then once you’ve ordered or printed your coupon, simply come back to our site for more great offers and articles about how to use coupons to save. And be sure to register to receive our daily e-newsletter with links to the latest coupons, contests & free samples. If you’re new, please do say “hi!” over on our facebook wall or in the comments section on any of our website posts. We love hearing from our members.
So if you’ve been thinking about checking out this whole “coupon scene” – we welcome you aboard! CanadianCoupons.net will help you save money bit by bit. And if it’s not quite extreme enough for you, you can tell us all about it at Tribal Council (wink!).
