A few pretty decent coupon deals have come up lately that require 10 coupons. Since I only buy 4 copies of the newspaper, I generally don't have 10 of each coupon unless they are printable ones. So what can I do?
There have been times when I have bought coupons from a coupon clipping service. Clipped coupons are available from 5 to 15 cents each. You can also get complete, uncut inserts for approximately 80 cents each. You can get them for less when you get multiple copies.
I haven't gotten complete inserts from a service, because it's cheaper for me to just buy the newspaper instead of paying 80 cents for each of the 2-3 inserts that come each week. While I don't believe it's a reasonable option for every week, it is a good option if you somehow completely miss a week of coupons.
A better option all around is hooking up with other couponers and exchanging coupons with each other for free. It's a win-win situation - you help others and help yourself!
