Like almost everybody else, I LOVE coupons! And I’m sure most of you do, too. In fact, according to CreditCards.com, 85% of Americans use coupons.

Do you use coupons? If so, where do you get your coupons? Oh, and another thing: A few times I’ve forgotten to bring my (paper) coupons with me to the store. Anyone have any suggestions for remembering to bring and use their coupons? Let us know by leaving a comment!

Anyway, a website called accessdevelopment.com pulled together a massive amount of information about coupons. Here are just a few of the very interesting stats cited:

  • 97% of consumers look for deals when they shop and 92% said they are always looking
  • 81% of consumers search for dining deals on a regular basis
  • 85% of consumers look for coupons prior to visiting a retailer
  • 74% of consumers review circulars and print ads before making a purchase
  • $3.1 billion was saved by consumers in 2017 thanks to coupons
  • 42% of consumers save over $30/week using coupons; 30% save over $50/week
  • Over half of consumers use a coupon in at least one of every four purchases
  • 87% of Millennials, 91% of Generation Xers and 96% of Baby Boomers used coupons in 2016
  • 53% of consumers indicated they invest over two hours a week looking for deals and savings across all sources
  • 55% of consumers said they use both digital and paper coupons
  • 52% of consumers print out digital coupons for use in stores

Finally, here are some useful scanning tips regarding coupons and deals:

  • If you purchase items using a special deal like a coupon, discount, or store sale, please let us know. Manufacturers and retailers really want to know what types of deals you’re using when you buy their products.
  • Many coupons have barcodes on them. Of course we want you to tell us about any coupons you use, but please do not scan the barcode on the coupon. Although the scanner or NCPMobile App may accept the barcode, the information is not readable to us.

Well, I have to get back to clipping my coupons! Have a great weekend, and happy shopping!

Best Regards,
