  • Stinger Savers Basic How to Get Started Saving
  • What do these numbers represent? $2,182.77 $2,408.58
  • What items are on your shopping list? Find coupons using a coupon database: Stockpiling Moms http://www.stockpilingmoms.com/coupondatabase/ Savings Lifestyle http://savingslifestyle.com/coupon-database/ Database App such as LadySavings
  • Suggestion Create an e-mail account on gmail, AOL, Hotmail, Yahoo, whomever you choose, just for your shopping/couponing activities Keep your regular e-mail uncluttered Consider doing the same for FB
  • Finding Coupons to Use Example – IP with link Brawny Paper Towels, Big Roll - $1.00 $0.55/1 Brawny Paper Towels, Any Package - SmartSource.com $0.55/1 Brawny Paper Towels, Any Package - WoundedWarriorProject.org $0.55/1 Brawny Paper Towels, Any - 11-17-13 RP $1.00/2 Brawny Paper Towels, Any - 11-17-13 RP Final Price: $0.00 Paper Coupon - Date & Name of Insert
  • Don’t have time to clip ALL those coupons? Store them by type and date of insert for easy access.
  • Sources for Coupons •Weekly coupon inserts in the newspaper – two subscriptions, ask neighbors for theirs, date of insert on edge of insert •SUGGESTION 2 – PULL INSERTS APART AND STACK TO SAVE TIME CUTTING •IP – Internet printable – print two per IP address NEVER copy, look for unique numbers – coupons.com, replum.org, smartsource.com (java issues at times) •Manufacturer websites/newsletters •Displays or booklets in stores •Coupon clipping services – order on-line, minimal charge, you are paying for their service, not their coupons •Electronic/Store coupons – Kroger, mPerks, Target, various apps such as SavingsStar **May STACK store & manufacturer (MQ) coupons ** **Use your GENERIC email address you created**

  • Stinger Savers Advanced How to Take Your Savings to the Next Level
  • Terminology •Coupons – available from various sources •Insert – packets of coupons available in the paper •Stacking – using more than one type of coupon/deal on an item •BOGO – Buy one, get one free •Sale Cycle – time of year, month when items go on sale •http://www.grocerybudget101.com/content.php/58sales-cycles •Stockpile – lowest price usually seen for an item •Coupon Policy – Each store has their own policy, become familiar with them
  • Plan the Week Before Most shopping planning websites and apps will announce the upcoming deals starting on Thursday or Friday the week before the ad is released. Start making notes of deals they are highlighting. Keep a running list as you come across deals on various websites and Facebook news feeds. I like to use an RSS Feeder to receive updates from websites. You will shop for not just items of immediate need, but items at stockpile pricing. Try not to be brand loyal.
  • Use Match-Up Sites There are a number of match-up sites – some of my favorites: Watch for their symbols or wording which indicate stockpile pricing. •Stockpiling Moms (Melissa & Shelley from NKY) for Kroger – Post unadvertised sales on Tuesdays – www.stockpilingmoms.com •Savings Lifestyle (Andrea from Dayton) – Most stores including drug stores www.savingslifestyle.com •Cincyshoppers (Jen in Cincinnati) – Most stores including drug stores – good for Remke – www.cincyshoppers.com •Passion for Savings (National) - http://www.passionforsavings.com/ •Totally Target (Store Specific) – Doesn’t always indicate a stockpile item http://www.totallytarget.com/
  • Match-Up Apps I usually start my list each week with Favado and then e-mail it to myself. Then add to it as I come across deals. Facebook Many of the stockpilers are on Facebook and posts deals throughout the day.
  • The Next Level – Deal/Money Back Apps/Sites Before you sign up for any of the following apps or websites, ask a friend or sign-up using a referral link so that others receive a benefit from you signing up.
  • The Next Level – Deal/Money Back Apps/Sites Ibotta – earn money back /gift cards on specific items, take a picture of receipt and scan UPC, some stores are tied to loyalty card such as Remke, also has restaurants, pets stores and are constantly adding more Checkout51 – New – works like Ibotta, deals run Thursday – Wednesday, must submit within the time period, •Website version SavingsStar – earn money back on items, must load to your account first, add your Kroger, Remke or CVS card
  • The Next Level – Deal/Money Back Apps/Sites Receipt Hog – Earn coins or spins for coins for taking a picture of your receipt. Grocery store type items from a number of stores. Must submit within 14 days. Redeem coins for money. Shoparoo – Same as Receipt Hog except you earn points for which a “cause” of your choosing earns money. Grocery store type items from a number of stores. Must submit within 14 days.
  • A Few Additional Tips Remke STILL DOUBLES coupons – watch for Super Double Days. You can Quintuple stack at Target – mobile, Cartwheel, Target printable, manufacturer coupons AND Red Card discount Make sure your “cause” is benefiting from your shopping – Kroger, Remke, Meijer, Target along with Shoparoo ALL benefit organizations.
  • A Few Additional Tips Always check the clearance/Manager’s Markdown areas – especially meat Consider joining a food coop such as Paula’s Produce to get great pricing on produce Please consider donating your expired coupons to military families. They can use coupons up to 6 months after expiration. Check out Expired Coupons for Overseas Military on Facebook. -Cost is at normal domestic rate
