    extreme couponing 18th Apr 11 at 3:48 PM
    HI All,

    Have just seen a new programme advertised on discovery realtime it's called Extreme Couponing looks like it may be worth a look. Now sure if it's just in America or here in the UK too. We may get some good ideas of it. NO date set as yet to when it will be aired but I would say it should start sometime within the next couple of weeks.

    my little log of bargains...I keep a monthly record of the glitches/freebies etc I've had and it works out roughly tripling in value the actual money I've spent.
    Most of the offers are grabbed from off here, and don't just get any old tat just because it is cheap or free.

    Where can i get vouchers
    Watched the fab penny pinching programme on channel 4 last night and was inspired by Judith who seems to do all her weekly shop with vouchers. I want to know where on earth does she get them all from?? for instance she had vouchers for bread and had loads. Does anyone know where to get vouchers that i can use in the supermarkets.

    Ultimate Pennypinchers -C4 - Vouchers
    Hi All,

    Did any of you watch Channel 4's Ultimate Penny Pinchers?

    There was a woman on there who had lots of supermarket vouchers she used to reduce her shopping.

    Where do you find these vouchers? The ones I find are only a few pence off things I never buy, is there a tactic to this? Can anyone tell me if its worthwhile?

    You can find the coupons right on MSE HERE - read the 1st page and there is actually a shopping list showing where to combine coupons with the best prices for maximum effect - sometime free and sometimes they actually pay you to take the stuff away.

    Is it worthwhile?? I'm a newbie really, only 4 months or so and I've saved hundreds of pounds and have stock in cupboards now to last a year with some stuff, especially on household goods - you decide if it's worth it.

    Good luck.

    I completely agree with Lynsey, it's totally worth while using vouchers! I've paid about 50% of what I usually paid for every shop I've done since checking out (and researching) vouchers here - takes a bit of time but is a great way to save loads of money. Check out the thread with the coupons here on MSE http://forums.moneysavingexpert.com/showthread.php?t=3628257
    Good luck and happy couponing!
    P.S. Careful coz it's absolutely addictive! XxX

    if a Tesco stores accepts once of their own price match vouchers - a JTD voucher does that store get its money back?

    I watched that coupon programme on the tv last week and I have to say, I can not print more than my share of coupons, the programme recognises my IP address and I would suggest that the extreme form of couponing really airs on the side of fraud. Bit of a party pooper I guess. How she finds all those 'free' coupons is beyond me, I am always looking.

    Also, my supermarkets would never allow that many coupons. Would yours? Think they did this for the TV!!
