The Monday, March 8th Wall Street Journal ran an article called “Hard Times Turn Coupon Clipping into the Newest Extreme Sport” yeah!  It’s an interesting article and we were honored to be one of the sites featured.  Thanks WSJ!  We would have liked to have added some of our own tips about how to special order and not abuse the system by overbuying, as the article and video portrayed some pretty expansive stockpiles.  You might be a over-buying if. . . you can create a 6 foot tower/castle out of jello boxes.

Coupon Use spiked 27% from 2008 to 2009, which is the largest year over year percentage growth reported by this particular coupon tracking agency.  We always say couponing isn’t just for those of us who are broke!  The average houshold income of coupon users is reported at over 70,000 per year.  Find more interesting facts by reading the story or watching the video here.
