Skip to comments.The Coupon Whisperer: Ping Pong Couponing
Posted on 01/17/2011 6:05:20 PM PST by PJ-Comix
I have fond memories of that sport since we had a ping pong table in our enclosed patio when I was a kid. Other kids from around the neighborhood would gather and play and the early evenings after supper were punctuated by the sound of the paddles smacking the ping pong balls. However, all was not sweetness and light. I still remember when the kid we called The Monk, who had what we would now call Anger Management problems, would often turn bright red with rage when he narrowly lost and would frequently smash open the ping pong balls with his paddle. Once he even tossed a ping pong ball into his mouth and began angrily chewing on it.
Ping Pong even featured in diplomacy since Red China first opened itself up to the USA by inviting the American Ping Pong team into that sealed nation. At the time legend had it that Senators Spong and Fong sponsored a bill to recognize this diplomatic effort by the mass ringing of church to mark the arrival of the American Ping Pong team in Hong Kong following its tour of China. Supposedly it was called the Spong-Fong Hong Kong Ping Pong Ding Dong Bell Bill.
Yes...I know, I know. By now you are angrily screaming "Enough with this Ping Pong shtick! Teach me how to save a bundle of money via Ping Pong couponing. Well here goes...

Your problem is getting worse.
Scratch that. I meant that at the Coupon Whisperer...your problem is getting worse.
love that! i have done this, and find i have good experiences when the cashier is a young male or a “foreign” female...
I was going back through my and your posts to see if I had somehow had a problem with you in the past or something... ;)
PJs problem may be intense, but you have to admit he has every angle covered. I am a frequent flier and you would be amazed at the number of systems I have developed over the years to help me make the experience as easy as possible...
It’s getting harder, but I’ll make room.
You are in my prayers.
I am not nearly as good as the Coupon Whisperer but I went online and got a bunch of coupons. I then made up my food order based on sale prices, store coupons (in their flier), and manufacturers coupons. I go to Safeway with my four year old and we do our weekly food shopping. So, we go to the checkout and I get the food for $88 dollars LESS than without the card and coupons. My four year old yells, “HOW MUCH MONEY DID YOU SAVE, MOMMY?!!!!”. She is as excited as if the circus just came to town. I said, “We saved some money”. Her response, “DID WE SAVE ENOUGH TO GET ME GUM!!!!”. Needless to say, EVERYONE’S eyes were on us. Yes, she did get a pack if gum.
Congrats on the pun!
You should have gone to the Safeway forum at HotCouponWorld.Com. Also I am sure that there are websites dedicated to Safeway deals. They will match up the sales with the coupons. Makes it easy.
Thanks for the advice! I’m still in the learning phase but it really is sort of a “high”.
Best one yet.
Would you be kind enough to add me to that list?
PJ, can you put me on your ping list? Thanks.
