As much as want to explain everything there is to know about couponing to you before you start shopping…that’s just not feasible and you will likely lose interest. So before I do that, I am giving you a homework assignment.This is to show you just how much coupons will benefit you.
To start, click here to get a $2.00 off Excedrin coupon. Remember you can use the back button after it stops printing to go back to the beginning and print a second one (two for every computer you have). The first time you go to that site, you will have to install the coupon printer. It is completely harmless I promise!
So now you have at least two of these coupons. What do you do with them? Well for this very first coupon trip to keep it simple, you will need to take these two to a Walmart store. Their regular price for the 20 count box of Extra Strength Excedrin is $2.98. This means that you will be taking home two 20-count bottles for only 98 cents each. Congratulations! You just saved your first $4.00! In the future I may have multiple stores that would work for this deal. A couple weeks ago these bottles were on sale for $1.98 at Rainbow, so they would have been free! I just wanted to give you all an easy opportunity to start saving.
Remember–When it comes to coupons you ALWAYS want to purchase the smallest size that is allowable by the coupon. In this case, the coupon is for “20-count and larger” which means that we want to stick to the smallest, cheapest size possible. I will explain more on this in the Beginner’s Lounge as to why this is important.
