Extreme Couponing Tip: Tearpad Coupons 101

Tearpads: A pad of manufacturer coupons found near product on shopping aisles.  Tearpad manufacturer coupons may be used at any store, not just the one where you found the coupon. Tear pads are regional and vary by state, city, and store.

Fine print: Tearpad coupons, like blinkies and peelies, are for specific products and sizes.  Ensure that you have the right quantity listed and check that the expiration date has not passed.

Tearpad etiquette: As with peelies and blinkies, we want to make sure those who shop after us also get the chance to have access to the coupons. Leave some for others, and don't take more than you will use.
