Coupons are one of the best money-saving ideas ever invented. There’s nothing like being able to go and buy your favorite kind of (insert name of product you like to buy on a regular basis) and get some kind of discount or special on it!
There are all types of coupons out there. Some coupons allow you to save money by either taking a specific dollar amount or percentage off. Other coupons allow you to get multiple items at a discount price.
My favorite coupons? The ones that companies give out to people on their birthdays or holidays that allow them to get a FREE meal. A good example of this is Benihana’s, one of the finest hibatchi-style Japanese restaurants out there. If you go to their site and sign up for their customer’s club (I forget the name of it), they will send you a coupon for a FREE meal (up to $30 worth of food) during your birthday month! I did this last year, and was able to amass a HUGE amount of food… and still had a few “free” bucks left over to get a decent drink!
So, the next time you get a newspaper (or, if you’re on the computer constantly, are surfing the net for things to buy), be sure to check out the coupon section. You may be surprised at how many deals are out there and how much money you can save if you just take a lil’ time and look through them.
Ah, coupons… now THAT’S something to be thankful for!
