When you are at a retail store or restaurant, ask them if they know of any coupons that are available before you checkout. I asked at Aeropostale recently and they told me that the info desk in the mall sells a coupon booklet for $5 that includes a $10/$50 Aeropostale coupon in it. If I hadn’t asked, I would have been out an extra $10 that day (I got the coupon booklet for free because I am a AAA member).
If you are new to Couponing, you might want to take a moment to read more in my Getting Started Couponing series. It will teach you how to coupon like I do!
