December 7, 2007, Newsletter Issue #179: The Downside of Purchasing Coupon Certificate Books

Tip of the Week

You may have seen offers stating you can buy a coupon certificate booklet for anywhere from $20 to $50. The great deal offered is that each certificate in the booklet (usually between 20 to 50 certificates) is good for $10 worth of grocery coupons with no expiration date. The old adage rings true here: if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. To redeem the promised $500 worth of manufacturer's coupons, you might have to pay over $100 for postage and processing fees. When the coupons arrive, you are likely to find stacks of duplicate coupons on items you might never buy. Your best bet is to clip coupons from the Sunday paper yourself, and ask friends and neighbors to share extras.
