    Great 'Extreme couponing UK' Hunt - tell us your tips and tales 16th Aug 11 at 10:37 AM
    A new series of the US TV show Extreme Couponing kicks off next week on Discovery Real Time. Something of a cult among forumites, the programme shows coupon addicts who spend 40 hours a week clipping coupons and stockpiling 1,000s of freebies.

    We an exclusive sneak preview below, plus we want to hear your top UK extreme couponing techniques.


    Tell us your tips and tales

    Many Extreme Couponing techniques don't cross the pond - sadly US supermarkets are more generous than ours.


    So we'd love to hear MoneySavers' (legal) Extreme Couponing UK tips and stories. For example, look for coupons on already-discounted products, as they'll work out uber-cheap.

    Plus serious couponers draw up a coupon battle plan before hitting the store, and systematically file coupons in a concertina folder, split into sections such as meat or veggies.

    Please hit reply to tell us your top coupon maximising strategies.

    Exclusive Extreme Couponing clips

    Discovery Real Time has given us an exclusive glimpse of the new series, which launches Mon 22 Aug at 10pm. Watch the first clip below or watch all five clips.




    How to build your coupon stash

    Coupons are everywhere. Root through junk mail, scout around tills, rip them out of magazines - they all add up.

    The Supermarket Coupons deals note is a regularly updated list of current legitimate coupons.
    Also keep an eye on this forum's fab Printable money-off coupons thread.

    The Magazine Offers Thread is another excellent resource, where MoneySavers kindly catalogue all coupons and offers in current magazines. If the magazine costs more than the coupon's worth, it's not worth it. But if you were buying your fave glossy anyway, you're quid's in.

    Finally, dedicated MoneySavers update a daily newspaper summary with all the coupons from that day's papers. To find the info, go to the Discount codes n' voucher Forum board and look at the NEWSPAPER SUMMARY thread.
