The Coupon Whisperer: Learn From The Coupon Jedi Masters
The Coupon Whisperer ^ | February 1, 2011 | PJ-Comix

Posted on 02/01/2011 4:27:18 PM PST by PJ-Comix

Hello Couponeers!

Today we shall learn that you can NEVER stop learning about effective couponing. Just when you THINK you might know all there is to know about coupons, whole new previously undiscovered worlds can open up to you. And in the case of The Coupon Whisperer the world of PDS file coupons opened up for me last night.

You see, I have been operating under the assumption that you can only print out only a couple of coupons of a particular type from the Web. In most cases that is true. However, as I learned last night there is a BIG exception to this rule.

My wife found a way to pre-load coupons onto our Kroger cards, and they get rung up at the register. The problem is, I have no idea what the hell she'd loaded on the cards in advance, so it's a crap shoot when stuff gets scanned. LOL

"But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: for men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away, for his name is Obama."

PING!

And don't forget to ask to be placed on The Coupon Whisperer PING List. Couponing is no longer just some eccentric luxury. With the recession (and inflation) it has become a survival NECESSITY.

Perhaps the most incredible PDF coupon file I have encountered was last spring’s K-Mart 50% off $20 of merchandise. (I believe
it was limited to the Chicago area.) My wife became very adept at coming very close to exactly $20 totals and the coupon could be used on sale items as well. We gave away at least 100 coupons to friends who were out of work.

Check out the "My Secret Love" song further along in the blog. You might want to file it away for future reference. Right now I have no idea how it could be used but I do know that someday it could serve as the basis for a great parody song.

BTW, the "Calamity Jane" movie was panned in its time but that one Doris Day song from the flick became a big hit at the time (1953...pre-rock).

LOL! My wife has the same opinion. I was just now singing the "My Secret Love" song out loud again and my wife in the other room screamed at me to STFU!!!

Coupons leave me with mixed feelings. I used to use them lots. I think they cater to much to processed foods. But they defiantly have their place.

At least your wife thinks about saving money.. my wife’s idea of saving money is finding a $1,000 purse on sale for $900 and insists she is ‘earning’ us $100. Needless to say, I do the grocery shopping.

The Arnicare has a $1.50 coupon in the box. You probably already know that.

I brought up the Arnicare coupon several weeks ago.
http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-bloggers/2656077/posts

The coupon beeps. There are coupons inside the box for a smaller amount that will also beep. However, the coupons in the box can help plead your case if you run into resistant managers.

There is a pdf coupon for a hair product for blacks that is coming up that will make it free. It can help with rolling RRs.

I used these several months ago and they don’t beep.

Two manufacturer’s coupons? Nope. But one can use one manu coupon and one store coupon. It’s called stacking.

I used to use coupons a lot, I still do sometimes (to earn ponts at MyPoints plus save money). But, many stores have taken the fun out. they won’r double coupons over 50 cents. You usually can’t combine manufacturer coupons, although you can combine a store coupon plus a manufacturer. Add to that, most coupons seem to be for stuff I don’t use.

No problem. I'll just break out into my rendition of "My Secret Love" until the manager relents. BTW, I had another method of dealing with managers/bureaucrats involving chewing on elephant garlic. About a year later, Bernard Shaw on CNN actually brought up that incident. It must have gotten around. I SWEAR that happened but I don't want to talk about it much in the open because I could still get in trouble. (Depends on the Statute of Limitations).

No, but I do catch myself saying "..what, are you a democrat? do it yourself.." quite often... (her parents are libs though..).. Just some concepts don't sink in for her.. just like I can't hold a tune, she can't hold a budget.

I think if you put my wife in charge of the Fed and got BOGOs and coupons involved......she'd have the national budget in the black in about twenty minutes. LOL! She literally keeps a wicker basket, scissors, and a laptop next to the love seat. She comes home in the evening, pours a glass of wine, and proceeds to fleece anyone naive enough to let her get ahold of their newspaper insert. LMAO

PJ, did you have trouble with the Arnicare coupon beeping? I haven’t tried it yet but I’m reading online that it doesn’t scan and the cashiers have been giving people grief over it.
