How to coupon for Beginners. I will be trying to put out more how to extreme couponing videos and just ways to save money. if you have any questions about couponing leave them in the comments and i will do my best to help you with them

Here is the beginner couponing play list. Just start here and it will play all the videos for you.

Here is my kids channel StopThatAnimation

ShopKick free smart phone app.
is a phone app that pays you to walk into stores. just two of the things i do for extra money and stuff.

Also check out Swagbucks for more ways to save when couponing.
It’s a fun and easy way to make some money. you can print coupons from the site and get points for them that you can turn into money and you can also watch videos to also get swagbucks.
what are you guys doing here hi I know I haven't been around in a while but just so you guys that don't know for my new subscribers my name is Jeff and this is living pork and I was just gonna sit down take a look at my coupons and stuff but I thought I have so many new subscribers lately and asking all kinds of questions I know I've answered a lot of these questions before I know a lot of my friends who coupon and have channels have answered a lot of these questions but you know there's new people all the time so I thought we'd go back to basics and things have changed and I have been running low on some stuff I still coupon here and there I don't do big deals and stuff anymore that's why pretty much that making videos on couponing hauls and stuff but you know there's a lot of new people so I thought you know maybe I better get back to basics and I guess the first thing you need is your coupons when getting your coupons you want to try to find a a newspaper that has your coupons in it for the best deal so I found a place where I can pick my newspapers up for only a buck fifty and get them next thing you want to do is you need to to newspapers so you have two sets of coupons and when you've been couponing a while you'll understand that but the bigger your family the more coupons you're gonna need but for a beginner start out with two even one would be fine but start with two because you have to learn to coupon first get used to using your coupons flipping through them and seeing what coupons are ones that you're gonna use and stuff so that you get a feel for it but start off slow and I think that's the biggest problem with a lot of people is that they they try to do these big deals if you've watched any of my videos you've seen some of the bigger deals and stuff and I tried to keep my hauls fairly small even though you didn't see and I didn't show like massive hauls the really big ones I did them but I didn't really like to show them because I don't want people to get frustrated and I still see it people getting frustrated with couponing it's not extremely hard but it can be time-consuming and that's why I try to show shortcuts so I'm gonna leave a link in the description make sure you check out my other videos I've done I put them in a playlist so you just turn it on and watch them learn all that you could learn and then start couponing but now and even myself I need to go back and start reading the coupon policies for the different places that I coupon at and every store is different just because it's Walgreens and they have a Walgreens couponing policy you need to learn your Walgreens where you shop and find out which Walgreens are best because I can tell you right now from experience I have four of them just in my town and they are different and I have my preference to which one I go to I actually have one that I pretty much try not to ever go there just because it's such a headache over there the way they understand the couponing to policies to be in this and that so don't get frustrated when watching other people's videos on couponing and how they did it because there's maybe different than yours so always remember that a big thing is when you're new take your time I can't stress that enough do very small deals as possible and I will try to get back into doing that but as most of you know that that follow me and know me and have seen other videos of mine I do have another channel that is the kidses channel we've been growing it and it's growing fairly fast and it's just like keeping me so busy with that and I work a 12-hour shift and I'm up all night you know it's the middle of the night here but to me it's daytime for me because I'm getting ready to go back to work starting on Monday so but if you have kids definitely I'll leave a link to my other channel to the kids channel it stopped that animation we make all kinds of fun videos for kids we open a lot of different toys and stuff like that like I said it's very time consuming my play-doh eggs some of them literally take hours upon hours to make these huge play-doh eggs they're really cool so definitely if you have kids grandkids nieces nephews whatever go on over there and check that out I think they'll enjoy it we have a lot of fun over there Gary just got done doing a big play-doh egg and he was so excited those who don't know my son Gary who had a seizure at a very young age struggles with a speech yet today at 7 years old now so he but he loves doing these eggs and and he's opening these boxes and stuff of surprises and we actually get fan mail from people who have sent us really cool boxes of toys I mean it's just amazing how many nice people Huff they're you know want to give us stuff to open on Cameron so definitely go check that out but anyways when it comes to let's get back to the couponing make sure you read all your policies of your stores and learn your stores again I can't stress that enough either I'm running low on some stuffs but that's why I thought you know I got to get back into this and show the beginners how to do this so make sure you watch all of my videos I put them in a playlist make sure you watch along because from organizing them like a lot of people like to cut them out I don't I don't like to cut out my coupons because most websites most couponers that you're watching like myself we're I tell you what paper it was in and whether it was a smart source of PNG a red plum we're gonna tell you like that and if you cut your coupons then you now you're having to label each and every one of them it's it's very time-consuming and you'll see from there I just show you how to take these and you'll label them into a regular folder and put them into a box is all I use it's a file cheap file cabinet box put them in there and now all I have to do is look up on the tab what month and what paper it is and I'm I can pull out my coupons and look and see now remember not everybody has the same coupons they're very a lot of them can be very regional especially the really good ones and we are here in the North it's ice where we get some of the worst coupons around I know Florida gets some really good ones so if you live in Florida you're fortunate but again we're having a lot of problems with things like that I like to print out a lot of my coupons so let's definitely make sure you check online to coupons calm and stuff like that to get your coupons I just noticed that my store my local grocery store now has a computer base light system that it has smart source or I'm sorry coupons come right on it I can scroll through it pick the coupon I want and it prints it right there for me that I mean that is so nice I don't know if any you guys seen these things before like I said we just got it so very cool another thing make sure you use the smart apps if you don't have a smartphone man they really come in handy for couponing I'll leave a link for the shop kicks is what I use make sure you check that out I'll leave a link for it I get points literally for just walking through a door I get that I can then redeem for money and I've gotten literally hundreds of dollars off of this program it costs me nothing it's a free program it's free to sign up it's everything it's totally free it and it just goes on your phone and like I said you need a smartphone but when you walk into a store like Target especially targets everywhere I have them a Walmart now just started getting them I know our local Walmart doesn't it doesn't work there as far as walking through the door but the other ones that we go through do and I get points for walking in the door then there's things I tamil' to scan and you'll use your camera on your smartphone and scan that item and you'll get certain amount of points for different things and you can rack up points that way so again it it starts adding up quick and I I know I've made other videos on it too where we had like five hundred dollars worth of stuff that I purchased including this phone this phone was with the deals and everything else that was going on it ended up only cost me $40 but it actually did cost me nothing and I bought two of them one for Diana and one for myself it cost us nothing for these phones because I had saved up the points to buy them so really good deals out there so I will be back try to do some simple deals and whatnot but make sure you go check out our my other videos that will get you started and get you going in the right direction on how to coupon and stuff and for your make sure you go check out my other channel with the kids and stuff for your kids I hope you guys enjoy all that and I will be back and I'll see you guys next time at living poor bye guys

hey you guys at star thank you so much for tuning into the video so we are in CVS I am about to do a bunch of deals I think this is a pretty good week so I want to get started with the physician's formula so meth store is not tagged because it's still pretty early for a Sunday but the do I want to do is on the spend 15 get $10 in extra care bucks back I also have a $4 off one internet printable coupon this coupon was available in coupons calm as well but it's no longer available but I told you guys multiple times on my social media platform to print that coupon because it was going to come in handy so I hope that you guys did so what I'm gonna do on this deal because I need some mascara really really bad is I'm gonna grab one of these $14.99 mascaras and I am going to use that $4 off one printable coupon there was also a digital coupon that you may have on your account on CBS I don't think it's a new coupon so it's no longer available but if you had already loaded it you could use that as well so I'm gonna use that $4 off one coupon that will make my total $10 at $0.99 and then I will get back a $10 extra care book making it only 99 cents for the mascara the next deal up that I'm going to do is on the soft soap body wash so these are actually on sale this week it's not tagged but they are three dollars and 99 cents and then when you buy one you will get back a two dollar and 25 cents extra buck we have a one dollar off one coupon that came in today's smart source insert so it comes out to 74 cents each after you buy two you will pay five dollars and 98 cents out-of-pocket you will get back four dollars and fifty cents and extra care buck making them only 74 cents each so I'm gonna grab two of these as well the next deal we're going to do is on the total so these are actually on sale this week as well and show you guys that so they are three dollars and forty nine cents and then when you buy one you will get back a $2.00 extra care buck we had a four dollar off – printable coupon that was available on coupons com hopefully you guys printed that but if not there is also a four dollar off to digital coupon that you can download on the CBS app so you can use either one of those coupons the long and short of it is you would pay a dollar and 49 cents for one after the coupon and get back a $2.00 extra care but making each one of them a 50 cent moneymaker so I'm going to buy two and it will be a dollar moneymaker for me buying two of them next fill up is on the Schick razor so these are on a deal and we got some tags up over here you guys there bite you get a $10 extra care buck so what I'm going to do is I'm going to buy one of the Schick Hydro three refill cartridges they are $11.99 and then I'm going to buy one of the Schick Hydro three razors at $8.99 in today's smart source we have a buy one get one free you get the free razor when you buy the refill so what that means is is I will pay 1199 for the razor only and then I will get back a $10 extra care buck making it a dollar in 99 cents for both items now if you have any razor crts you can easily make this a freebie or a moneymaker but 99 cents per item on the cartridges and the razors so that's an awesome deal within itself to do another spins already get $10 and extra care bucks back deal I want you guys to remember that there are multiple items through the store included on this promotion in today's breakdown what I'm going to do is I'm going to get five laundry items and that I'm also going to get two packs of water because bottled water is actually included this week which I'm pretty excited about so the Tide Pods are included at four and ninety four we have a three dollar Digital coupon that you can use and then we also have a paper coupon from the RetailMeNot let me show you guys what that looks like I'm going to use on some of them but I think I'm also going to grab some game flings so these are also four dollars and 94 cents and then we also have some on the downy and the gained items as well so we're also going to put together just a scenario with all of those and I will show you guys what we come up with okay so now I want to go over what I came up with for my thirty dollar has been 30 get ten transaction so what I'm going to pick up is three of the Tide Pods I'm actually gonna ring them up and choose separate transactions and I'm gonna use different types of coupons so I'm going to use the $3.00 off digital and then I'm going to use two paper coupons we have printable coupons for the tie pod and the insert coupons so remember that you can break up your transactions it will track and you can mix the match your coupons to respect the limits I am also going to get one of the hundred and five count game dryer sheets those are included and one of the game liquid laundry detergent so for the game dryer sheets we have a $2.00 off one digital coupon and then for the liquid laundry detergent we also have a $2.00 off one digital coupon so I'm going to use both of those on those items so all of those plus two about 24 packs of water at $2.99 each will bring my total to thirty dollars and 68 cents I will use all of my coupons that will bring my total to 1768 and then you would pay the 1768 of course I am going to roll extra care bucks and you would get back $10 making your final cost for all seven items seven dollars and 68 cents so it's like getting those items for a dollar apiece for bottled water liquid laundry detergent to tie the game a dollar a piece is fantastic now let's talk about a little bit about how I'm going to pay for all this because I'm only coming in the door with 19 dollars in extra care bucks I have 16 dollars from last week plus three dollars and beauty bucks that I earned so I have a total of 19 dollars that I'm starting with this is definitely more than 19 dollars worth of stuff so what I'm going to do to make sure that I don't have a high out-of-pocket is I'm going to break these transactions up into three different transactions so in my first transaction I am going to do the soft soap body wash I am going to do the Schick razors and I am going to do the Colgate because that is a moneymaker I am going to take my extra care bucks from that transaction and in my second transaction the only thing that I will buy is the Physicians Formula I will use my extra care bucks from the first transaction my last transaction will be these spend 30 get 10 where I will buy everything else oh and also I'm gonna pick up one of the tides and put that into my first transaction as well just to make sure that that tie digital coupon doesn't attach to the wrong item in my last transaction let me throw that in there as well I will review this more when I get home but I want to let you guys know that I'm gonna break this up into three so I'll have three different transactions three different receipts because we are not about to pay a whole lot out-of-pocket but that is my game plan remember that I also have a written document breaking this all down in the description box so definitely check the there so without further ado let me stop talking and let me check out okay you guys so I am back at home and I ended up only doing two transactions instead of one because after my first transaction CVS actually gave me a 10 off of 40 so I was like let me build myself a $40 transaction for the second transaction so I can use this free $10 so let me show you how things worked out transaction by transaction so this is transaction number one and for this transaction things actually worked out better than I expected them to and I only had to use I had to use less ExtraCare bucks but I thought I was going to have to use because of the ship deal so the total worked out just fine this also worked out just fine but the ship is actually a moneymaker so that buy one get one free coupon is actually deducting for a free refill instead of a razor so it took off 1199 instead of $8.99 so if your cashier does not hate on you and lets that that coupon do what it's doing naturally it will take off 1199 so what that means is you will pay $8.99 at the register and get back ten dollars using that BOGO coupon making those free plus a 101 money maker without any CRTs involved so because of that my transaction shifted a little bit from what I thought it was going to do those are all the coupons that I use there I also had a five off of 25 coupon that CBS had sent to me and also keep in mind that I purchased one of my Tide Pods in this first transaction just to make sure that that $3.00 off digital would attach to and I don't want to confuse anything and my last transaction because for some reason it will not attach properly if you have other type coupons in the mix so with all of those coupons and getting that 1199 value plus rolling my extra care bucks I paid zero out of pocket and I paid a dollar in 81 cents in Texas and I had a hundred percent savings I say 46:23 now from that transaction actually got back four dollars in extra care bucks from the Colgate 450 from the soft soap and ten dollars from the Schick that I rolled into transaction number two so four transaction number two I picked up all of these items everything without the physician's formula is my spin 30 get ten deal now for the game what I notice is that only one of my game coupons attached these laundry coupons the digital ones are really funny if you have more than one so I probably should have split up the game and put that into one of them into my first transaction as well but I wasn't worried about it because I did have that 10 off of 40 so that was the only hiccup that I had in this deal but let me show you how things worked out on my receipt so there is my bottled water there's the gain items that you tied on in the physician's formula those are all the coupons that I use the three dollars off are for the tide and the four dollars is for it the physician's formula and then one of the game digital supplied the other one did not I used that ten off of forty plus my extra care bucks from my first transaction I paid zero out-of-pocket once again I had a dollar in ninety-eight cents in taxes that I had to pay and then I saved 54:43 and I had a hundred percent savings value from that transaction I got back a $10 extra care bucks from the spend 30 get 10 and then I got back a $10 extra care bucks from the physicians formula I will also get back a beauty club book for this deal as well so let me know if you have any questions remember to check the description box for the written breakdowns for these deals as always I thank you guys for joining me for another CBS shopping trip I thank you so much for watching I hope you had an amazing rest of your day and a weekend and I will talk to you soon bye

hey you guys it's star thank you so much for tuning into the video so in today's video we are going to be continuing our couponing 101 series so today we're gonna be talking about digital coupons so this video is gonna be all about digital coupons if you watch my channel hopefully you are subscribed then you know I love digital coupons there are some weeks where all I want to use is digital coupons I just don't feel like messing with paper coupons and I got a great question I'm on one of my recent haul videos where somebody was saying do you have a digital coupon 101 video and I thought about it I was like I do not I touched on digital couponing and my general couponing 101 video but I didn't go into depth and I feel like I digital coupons so much at this point that it's definitely a topic that we need to go into depth on because I want to make sure that you guys know how to not only use digital coupons but maximize digital coupons I love digital coupons for a variety of reasons the main one is because they're free they are electronic coupons that you can add for free 99 of my favorite price y'all know this that you can add to either your store loyalty account or to your a phone number so if you have a card or a phone number associated with the store anyone can add these coupons to their account and maximize savings at the grocery stores at the drugstores at the dollar stores so for the sake of this video I'm going to organize it into four parts in the beginning we're gonna talk about all of the basics on digital coupons what they are what they aren't how to use them just in a general sense then we'll talk about using them at the drugstores and we'll talk about using them at the dollar stores and then we'll talk about using them at the grocery store because I think it's a little bit different at every single type of store so without further ado let's get started okay so now let's talk about digital coupons where they are and what they aren't so digital coupons as I just mentioned are free coupons that you can load to either your store loyalty card or your store account you do this by creating an account if you don't already have one with the store of your choice by going onto their website or downloading their mobile application on your phone once you do that you want to go to the digital savings area of that website take a peek at all of the manufacturer and store coupons that are available you download the ones that you want to use for your deals and once they're downloaded you can go to the store pick up the corresponding items into your phone number or scan your loyalty card at the register depending on the store and those savings should come off it's just that simple it's just that easy so that's what digital coupons are now let's talk about what they aren't and how they differ from paper coupons because there are some important differences and I get a lot of questions surrounding this so the big difference I think that this kind of jumps out at me with digital coupons is generally typically not all the time because at grocery stores this can differ but for most of the time you only have one coupon that's available so one manufacturer that's available that's available per item per Digital coupon account so of your digital couponing at CVS for instance and you have a $5 off of three pantene coupon like we have right now you can go in and use that digital coupon get three bottles of Pantene shampoo that five dollars will come off but if you go and buy six bottles of Pantene shampoo guess what's going to come off still five dollars it's not going to recognize that you purchased six and you could use two of those digital coupons alike if you were using paper coupons you could grab another paper coupon and save $10 so that's the key difference between paper and digital so you have to keep that in mind when you're building your deals that you want to build deals where you only need to use one coupon you can also not stack your paper manufacturer coupons with a digital coupon you can use them at the same time but you can't stack them so in couponing you will notice just about every single coupon that you have whether it be a digital coupon or a paper coupon it's generally that I have some burbage on it that starts out with the words limit one per purchase so what that means is you can only use one coupon per the number of items that you are purchasing doesn't matter if they're digital or store so let's go back to the Pantene shampoo for instance so if you have that $5 off of three digital coupon you're buying three bottles of Pantene shampoo you can use that digital coupon but if you're still only buying three bottles of shampoo you cannot take your $5 off of three paper coupon and save an additional five dollars now if you were going to buy six bottles of shampoo and he wanted to use one paper coupon and one digital coupon you can definitely do that and I love to do that because it's a way because some of the coupon wording has gotten so strict you will see especially like on Procter & Gamble coupons where it's a limit of one so if you need to buy two of an item a way that I work around that strict wording is I will use one digital coupon and one paper coupon and buy two items so hopefully that makes sense but that's kind of the shake and bake now let's talk about stacking your digital coupons with store coupons so this is where digital coupons get fun so if you have a store coupon for an item you can stack that with your manufacturer digital coupon so if you had a $5 store coupon for a Pantene at CVS you can definitely use that store coupon or that CRT as some people call it and stack that with your $5 off of three manufacturer coupon if your CRT is a digital when you enter your phone number or scan your card both of those coupons should come off and that is where the magic happens something else I love about digital coupons that's very important to note is that digital coupons can often offer free coupons and higher value coupons and you will see in your traditional paper coupons I personally believe that I have no scientific evidence to back this up but I personally believe that manufacturers release higher value digital coupons because they have more control over the release of those digital coupons because they're typically only one per purchase one per account so they don't have to worry about someone going out and getting 5 or 10 or 20 of the free items that they're offering because it's attached to a digital coupon account but because some of those coupons can be a higher value I'm talking about fantastic coupons you need to move very very quickly when you see those coupons available so if you see a video here on YouTube or anywhere else that says low these digital coupons now load them now because they're usually limited in quantity or the manufacturer is going to planning to pull them very very quickly so they may not be here tomorrow if you do not load them today and we have all seen if you've been couponing for any amount of time where we have a fantastic digital coupon and then all of a sudden it disappears and it's no longer available for new downloads but typically not all the time but typically if you have that digital coupon already downloaded to your account you're gonna be safe and able to use it so when you see a hot digital coupon load it quick another thing that I truly love about digital coupons is they take away the friction that can sometimes occur when you're using paper coupons in a store so if you have a store that's not coupon friendly at all we have all encountered those if you have coupons for any amount of time digital coupons make it easier for everybody because you don't have to worry about the coupon er I mean the cashier catching an attitude when you hand them your stack of paper coupons because generally they can't even see what coupons you're using until they hit that total button and all of those cool come off which is awesome because if you're couponing at a store like Dollar General that can be very not coupon friendly depending on your location then that takes out all of the friction of that cashier trying to scrutinize and misinterpret your coupons now the flip side of that is if you have an issue with your digital coupons I feel like since more people have been digital couponing lately we have been noticing that some stores have been having issues with their digital coupons so if you have an issue with your digital coupons because that cashier cannot see your digital coupons they can't verify that the digital coupon that you have is the right one for the product they cannot provide technical assistance in the same way that they could if they were looking at your paper coupon so there's a flipside to that so if your digital coupons are not working really your only resolve is to call customer service because customer service can see your digital coupon account and try to rectify the issue but it can be frustrating if you have an issue in store with your digital coupons and you know what's supposed to come off the cashiers and the store staff are gonna be very very limited and the ways that they can assist you so my best advice if that occurs is to just avoid the transaction cancel the transaction do not pay for it you can either start over or call customer service so now let's talk about digital couponing at the drugstores for the sake of time I'm just gonna focus in on CBS and Walgreens Rite Aid also offers great digital coupons that they call low to current coupons but I know a lot of areas no longer have a Rite Aid so I won't go into depth on that but let's talk about CVS and Walgreens so starting with CBS CBS has really come a long way with the digital coupon offerings that they provide so they offer a wide range of digital coupons they offer CRT so these are the cash register tape type coupons that you would normally get on the bottom of your long long receipt or when you scan your CVS at the Redbox machine they offered these coupons in electronic digital form so if you log on to your CBS account you can usually see those CRTs and add those to your loyalty cart that way so you don't have to deal with the paper they also offer a lot of in-app only coupons and so these digital coupons are coupons that will only be available if you download them via the CBS app they're trying to push you towards the app in order to get the most savings so you do have to download the CBS app in order to get those coupons then they also offer manufacturer coupons on the CBS app and you have the option of having your extra care bucks to be available in electronic form as a digital coupon as well so you can actually opt at CVS at this point in the game to have your almost your entire transaction be electronic if you are like me and you sometimes the misplace or lose or forget to use whatever the word is you can't keep up with your extra care bucks sometimes then I love the option of being able to just have those extra care bucks be electronic and digital form so that you will never have to worry about losing them because they're always on your card I know some people are really attached to the paper because they want to control the the way that those coupons are handed over to the cashier for the most part at CVS it really doesn't matter I'm a lot of people get caught up in the order of things for the most part it's all gonna kind of just work out at the end at CVS so you don't really lose anything by transitioning those things over to electronic form now let's talk about digital couponing at Walgreens because this is gonna be very very interesting so what I love about digital couponing at Walgreens is one my Walgreens is not very coupon friendly the people that Walgreens are always mad for some reason so digital coupons saves me a lot of headache when it comes to couponing at Walgreens Walgreens generally releases these digital coupons on a Sunday when the new sales ad starts so it's often pretty hard for me to plan my Walgreens trip at a time because I like to wait until Sunday to see what new digital coupons they are going to have they offer offer they also offer store coupons in a digital form as well which I love so they offer percentage off coupons dollar off coupons they offer point boosters all of these things in digital form so you can go onto your walgreens account and load it all up and so I love digital coupons at Walgreens now something that's important to note about digital couponing at Walgreens is the same rules apply as if you were using paper coupons so if you were using a paper point booster that required you to spend $20 and get five thousand points back and instead you're using a digital point booster where you can spend five thousand points and get you know you can spend $20 and get five thousand points back you still need to pay with cash it's the same way the same rules apply so hopefully that makes sense the digital form versus the paper form doesn't change the rules at Walgreens and we know that there are a lot of rules I also love that the IVC coupons and that means instant value coupons the ones that you can find in the front of the store in the Walgreens coupons book those are also available in digital form which is extremely helpful because you no longer have to go through the self ad or go to that coupon book and find those coupons you can load those IVC coupons to your digital Walgreens couponing account and it will still apply to your transaction for as many items as you have so that's a major difference because that store coupon at Walgreens that IVC it still works just like the paper store coupon would at Walgreens and if you're not familiar with store paper coupons the store coupons at Walgreens at Walgreens an IVC coupon an instant value coupon will attach to as many products as you have so we're talking about Pantene earlier let's talk about Pantene again so if you are using an IV see not a manufacturer coupon but a store a coupon on that Pantene shampoo and you're buying six bottles and it's five dollars off of three it will take off the $10 because it's recognizing that so that's the key difference and an opportunity for you to use one digital coupon and it deducted for the actual amount that you're purchasing a so now let's talk about couponing at the dollar stores and I'm gonna focus on Family Dollar and at Dollar General because I feel like that's where we shop the most so a Family Dollar they have digital coupons that they like to call smart coupons so you will see the smart coupon verbage posted on their website and app smart coupons are just their words for digital coupons there are two different types of coupons that are available in a digital form on the Family Dollar app they have store coupons that are available and then they also have manufactured coupons that are available I love the store coupons they're usually not all the time but they are usually purchase based coupons so like spend twenty-five dollars and you will get five dollars off is my favorite store coupon at Family Dollar the reason why I love this is because at the time of this video this may change in the future because I've heard different rumblings but at this time of the video your total as long as you get you a pre coupon total to twenty-five dollars you can use that five off of twenty-five store coupon plus your digital manufacturer coupons in conjunction together to come up with some really fantastic deals I have a bunch of different on examples and hauls on my channel where I could use digital coupons at Family Dollar so I won't go into depth on that but that is the premise of how it works so if you get your coupon pre coupon total to $25.00 use your store coupon and then you use your manufacturer coupons in a digital form and you can use all of them together they should all come off now if you don't have a store coupon that's available like a file off of 25 you are also more than welcome to just go into Family Dollar and just use your breaking the manufacturer coupons and get everyday savings I personally like to wait for the fight off of 25 though but something else that I think is just really a game changer in something that really kind of sets Family Dollar apart is they have a great app that helps you digital coupon one of the features of this app that I really really like is that you can actually check and see if the item that you are trying to purchase has any coupons available has any digital coupons available and if it matches the digital coupon that you are trying to use in-store so I actually like to scan every single item in my cart on the app just to make sure that the coupon that I'm trying to use is actually attaching to that item in the system that will save you a lot of heartache using digital coupons at Family Dollar because sometimes we know and we think that a digital coupon should be attaching to a product and it's not and if it doesn't attach in the app that is usually your indicator that it might not attach when you get up to the register so I like to check them using the app another feature of the app that I really like and a lot of people don't talk about is that you can actually create up to four different accounts as long as you have access to four different verifiable mobile numbers you can create up to four accounts using the app on one phone at Family Dollar this is very unique I haven't seen any other stores allow this but if you want to do a five off of 25 digital coupon deal and then you want to do another one using your husband's phone number or your son's phone number you can create and login to those accounts on your same mobile device which i think is pretty awesome now let's talk about Dollar General so Dollar General works pretty much on the same premise as Family Dollar in regards to they have store coupons that are available and manufactured coupons that are available the only thing that I think is a big differentiator between the two is Dollar General offers a lot more store coupons and those thoughts coupons tend to stack on each other even though the verbage on those digital store coupons you can only use one at a time when you enter in your phone number at Dollar General you will see that a lot of times those coupons will work in conjunction with each other it's not guaranteed it's not promised but a lot of times that happens and when it does it's really fun and you save a whole lot of money so I love when that happens but one of the most popular coupons or should I say there's actually a few of popular coupons store based digital coupons at Dollar General one is the 5 of 25 they also do a $2 off of 10 store based coupon and sometimes they have a 3 offer 15 store based coupons these operate under the same premise if you can get your pre coupon total to those threshold amounts whether it be $25 $10 $15 whatever the dollar amount is you can then also use your manufacturer coupons to reduce that total even further which is awesome something important to note about Family Dollar and Dollar General that I didn't talk about is that once you clip a digital coupon at either one of those stores it cannot be unclipped so when you clip a digital coupon at either one of those stores you better make sure that you want it so what I like to do is make sure that I actually scroll through and go through all of the digital coupons that are available before I click on the one that I want the reason I say that is because sometimes let me give you an example there will be a 25 cent off coupon or a 30 cent off coupon for Charmin toilet paper and then there will be another coupon for that same Charlotte Charmin toilet paper for $1 off at the same time if you are scrolling and quickie and clicking very quickly you will clip that 30 cent off coupon and then you'll keep on scrolling and you will see the dollar off coupon and you'll want that one instead but when you go into the store and you buy that tissue paper guess which one is gonna come on first I'll wait the 30 cents okay so whichever one you clipped first is coming off first it doesn't say let me give this customer the higher-value coupon it says which one did they clip first so please keep that in mind I get the question so much how can I unclip this one from my account you cannot you really are gonna have to use it or discharge it to the game and lose that coupon dollar generals app and my opinion has been lacking for the most part historically but we have just come into a new age of digital couponing at Dollar General because they have just released the DG Go app so the DG Go app is a different app from the general Dollar General app but what I love about this DG Go app it is not available let me preface that it's not available at every single Dollar General Store yet most of the stores in my area it is available but it's not available at every single store yet and this is an app that you can only use when you are inside a Dollar General Store but what this app allows you to do very similarly to the Family Dollar app is you can actually scan products and store it will tell you what sale price it's supposed to be ringing out as and then also what digital coupons are available corresponding to the ones that you have loaded to your account so what you can do with the DG Go app is actually go to the store scan pick up your item scan pick up your items it will tell you it'll give you a read out of what your total supposed to be what coupons are supposed to be coming off it is like pre predicting how your transaction will go when you get to the register so use it to scan and make sure that again whatever you're trying to use a coupon for is attaching to the actual product and to also get a preview of what your total is going to be when you checkout at the register let's talk about couponing using digital coupons at the grocery store so I was trying to think about a grocery store chain that I could pick that was local to me that I was familiar with that would also be local to most of you I couldn't really come up with anything besides Kroger which i think is that fantastic because progra does have Kroger stores and affiliates that are kind of sprinkled in different pockets throughout the country so if you don't have a Kroger I'm sorry I don't have every single grocery store there are some great digital coupon and grocery stores throughout the country but I'm gonna focus on Kroger for the purpose of today's video to talk about how digital coupons can work at grocery stores so prokhor is a fantastic example in my opinion because not only do they offer a wide range of digital coupons that you can download via the Kroger app or on the Kroger website but they offer also offer free coupons in best customer coupons and a wide range of coupons that you can load to your digital coupon accounts and when I say free coupons every Friday at Kroger when they have different periods going on they will offer you a digital coupon for a free product so you can actually I'm sure if you shop at Kroger you've seen the signage where you can actually download a digital coupon to your account and get a free product just about every single Friday so I think that's a fantastic offering another thing that Kroger does with digital coupons is they will often run digital couponing events so you can download digital coupons to corresponding sales throughout the store and what I love about this particular promotion is you can usually use a lot of those coupons up to five times so they will remove that one time limit that attaches to most digital coupons and you can use those digital coupons up to five times so if you're going into the store and you're buying that Lysol and you have a digital coupon if you see that five times the savings attached to that coupon you can buy five of those light sauce and use five of those coupons and all of the savings will deduct at the register now something that's important to note with those program events is that most the times those five times digital coupons events are attached to manufacturer coupons so if you go and try to use your paper coupons in conjunction with those at the same time they may not work now Procrit does have glitches will sometimes they do work together but they're not really supposed to both of those are manufactured coupons so just keep that in mind but you also have tons of store coupons that are typically available Kroger if you shop there quite often they will send you digital coupons to your account that they call best customer coupons so if you check your account they will have targeted store coupons that are available to you that sometimes you can stack with those manufactured coupons but even some of those are manufactured coupons as well so you just have to check and be careful and see what that coupon says another question that I get quite often about couponing at grocery stores like Kroger is what if I used the pickup service or the delivery service can I still use my digital coupons yes not only can you use digital coupons in conjunction with those services but a lot of times they offer special targeted coupons towards clicklist customers or customers who are picking up their orders so if you look on the app there's a way to kind of separate out the targeted coupons and you guys get special coupons incentives for picking up your order and using that click list service so digital coupons you can still get those savings if you're picking up your groceries or having your groceries delivered so I think that's pretty awesome you can also use just like with all of the other stores you can also use your paper coupons in conjunction with your digital coupons so if you're gonna be saving a bunch of money with your digital coupons but then you also have gonna be saving a bunch of money with paper coupons you can use them all at the same time at your grocery store and you don't have to worry about breaking your transactions up to maximise on those savings so that is pretty much the summary of what I wanted to cover I wanted to give you guys more information on how to use digital coupons at each individual store what they are what they are not and hopefully we have covered that feel free to check I I have a wealth of digital couponing videos on this channel if you want to see how digital coupons will work in action and see how I use them in my day to day life I promise you you can get a pretty decent stockpile just using only digital coupons so if your store or your area or your whatever doesn't offer newspapers or inserts or anything like that lean on digital coupons because I promise you that you can be a successful couponer using only digital coupons so I thank you guys so much for watching this video please remember to hit that thumbs up button and subscribe to my channel if you have not already I would love to have you here I will talk

okay guys so in this video I want to talk about where to find coupons so I would just start with of course your store adds a lot of the time your local stores they have their own sales debts and they also have coupons in there and deals like buy eight get four dollars off so you clip that out and you buy you know eight loaves of bread you get four dollars off instantly right there in your sales ads also in stores some stores are starting to have these little coupon centers where you can drop off coupons or pick up coupons so check you know are a stupid little customer service if they have those also your newspaper your local newspaper on Sundays may have coupon inserts some of them may not and then if you also have the bigger city coupon or newspapers that like we live in Illinois we live about three hours from Chicago they have the Chicago Tribune here in our local town so sometimes I'll get the Chicago Tribune because the coupons in there end up being a little bit higher value from our local newspaper where I would also get sunday inserts from so um newspapers on Sundays you can find coupons and then online of course coupons calm great place to get coupons red plum calm smart source calm target calm companies websites for example Cascadian farms it's like an organic little company my kids like their granola bars they have on their website well you can do a couple of different things and get coupons of course you can find whatever company you like if you're a brand loyal get on their website and see if they have it all you magazine that's about two dollars a month for that magazine and a lot of coupons are in there a lot of great coupons actually are in there your mailbox sometimes when you sign up and you go into Coles and you go here and there and they ask them for our emails which is why hopefully your have your couponing email set up they will send you stuff in your email but also they have your address a lot of the times and they'll send that's up to you in the mailbox so check your mailbox also you can find Blinky's just walking up and down the aisles they have them just sticking right out in your certain products you can find peel these which are actually on products you can find a coupon peel these you can find coupon tear pads which are also throughout the store you can find a Catalina's which will print out of the register and that will give you coupons you can go on Facebook and like certain pages and just for liking it they'll let you print off coupon you can get health books near the pharmacies in certain stores CVS Walgreens a couple of different stores I'm in Illinois so we don't have many stores but look in those little health booklets in it when you go to the doctor's office you have all of those magazines sitting out nobody who rarely takes the coupon out of them and I don't think they would mind if there is a little coupon sticking out for you to take it is free for everyone to look at also coupon clipping services you can always say hey I'm not gonna spend money on a newspaper or printing I'm strictly going to go through a company that Clips specific coupons that I want and I'll pay them a dollar for ten of those coupons or whatever so yes those are some ways to find coupons and use them so this is a short video but I did at least want to have the information out there that you guys can find so yeah I will definitely talk to you guys on the next video I believe the next video coming up is coupon matchup sites so if you want to learn a little bit about coupon matchup sites and where to go stay tuned to the next video which hopefully I will have linked in the downbar if not I'll have all the previous videos and videos to come so thank you guys for joining me today with couponing for beginners and this was step three and my name is Marcia and I'll see you guys on the next video bye

hey you how's it going – hope you're having a great day in today's we don't wanted to share with you and quick I bought a tutorial I love using ibotta I haven't made a lot of videos on it if you want me to leave a comment below I'll do some more ibotta deals that I get I can even incorporate them into like a grocery haul let me know if you're interested in that but yeah I know that a lot of people have to look these up because they're not exactly sure I don't know why it doesn't seem like it's that intuitive but it's an awesome app I want to show you how I use it I want to show you how I save money and if you're interested you can get $10 by using the link in my description box below and I'll get a little kickback so it's really a win-win you can even invite your own friends once you have a link so yeah let's just get started and I'll show you how it works so just a quick disclaimer before we get started a lot of people ask if I use coupons and I don't normally use a lot of coupons but I do use ibotta because I use it in Reverse so what I mean by that is I use it after I buy the item I bought it as a rebate app that you download on your phone for free and you search for rebates and then you scan your receipt so if you sign up and activate your account you'll get a $10 bonus added to your balance even if you don't use it a ton all of that money will add up and you'll get free money that will be put into your PayPal account or you can use it for other things whatever you want guys but again huge disclaimer here I think it's really important and I want to caution you when you're using any kind of coupon app or any kind of app that gives you money back or gives you any kind of freebies you want to make sure that you know what is called your triggers make sure you remember that a deal is not just a deal if you're just getting money off if you're going into an app to buy something you wouldn't have normally bought anyway that's a little bit of a problem so I would say go into using this app with the mindset of getting money back on items you would already have purchased and I'll show you a little bit about that in this video in this tutorial remember with couponing and rebei apps you might be tempted to buy things you wouldn't have needed anyway so make sure you stick to your list stick to your plan and use ibotta retro actively I would say go in and find offers but make sure that you don't just look for offers just to get the money back let me show you how it works and thank you for listening to my public service announcement about not buying things you don't need let's get started with this tutorial okay the first thing I want to mention is you will go into ibotta and if you are brand new you can use the link in the description box below and like I said you'll get $10 on your first Redemption this will be loaded into your account and you'll get it on your first Redemption whenever you redeem your first rebate but even when I started using this app I was like how do I actually use this how do I get my rebates how does it work it's pretty simple but it takes a little bit of time and a little bit of practice you'll see here I have all of my favorite stores but I actually added these afterwards if you want to add a story you can just go in there you can add a store and then you can make it your favorite so on my home page you're gonna see I have all of my favorite stores I like to have them right there front and center so that I know what store I'm gonna go to and I just check right before I go to that store after I make my list typically I do most of my ibadah shopping at Walmart I will also do it sometimes at Costco I recently just got a rebate at Costco so make sure you have all your favourite stores but again have them easy access and put them in your favorites so let's go ahead and go into Walmart and it's going to load all of the current rebates you can sort through them at the top by scrolling along here I like to look for usually hot or for new but if I'm looking for a specific item like a beauty item or a grocery item or beverage anything like that you can go straight to that category by clicking at this specific section so let's go into the hot category here for Walmart I don't look at my rebates every day but I do look whenever I'm going grocery shopping so about once a week I'd say you'll see here that you can get a rebate just for scanning your receipt and also for bananas that's the first thing I saw so I did buy bananas this week and I also have a receipt to scan so that's that's already 75 cents right there and this stuff adds up guys so this will show you all the current rebates but keep in mind it does vary by location just because I have something doesn't mean you'll have something I've seen people get some really good rebates that I don't have access to and I've also gotten access to rebates that other people don't have access to so if you click on the rebate it'll give you some more details it'll tell you that you can submit any receipt or even tell you for certain items that you can actually you know scan for more than one this has any brand bread you have a lot of just general ones but if you see here on the love's diapers it'll say that you can actually redeem up to five times per receipt so you can buy five and get three dollars cash on these diapers for every single item you buy even in one receipt which is amazing with ibotta what I love about ibotta is as you're in the store you can click this button and check the product barcode right then and there so you can check the product barcode and you can actually see if the item you have is the exact match you want to make sure that you do that if you're in this store you have any questions just so that you don't get home and you're like oh this doesn't match the rebate so when you're in the home screen here you'll see that dollar sign right there that little image that means that you can basically redeem multiple items in one receipt so the other day when I was in Walmart I bought some bananas which I haven't added to my cart yet but I did buy some Listerine and you'll see the green checkmark that means it's added to my offers right here and you'll see my offers my offers for Walmart this is like my little wallet when I'm in the store or when I just want to see what I have I also have some fun dip that I got and it has 75 cents cashback I got those for my kids for Valentine's Day but I wanted to leave those are already in my offers tab I wanted to leave a couple of things that I haven't gotten already so let's go back and add in the bananas I don't know what it's gonna happen when I do it we'll add it in it's asking me how many children do you have in your household I put two and then it says add cash back and that's pretty much it sometimes you might have to watch a little video or fill out a survey but most of the time it's really painless so I'm going to also add a receipt here it says here that you can get 50 cents cash back for any item I'm going to add that 50 cents cash back and there's also different things called boosts sometimes it'll have like a January boost or a February boost and you can add those boosts to make extra money for the month for the month of February there's a boost for two dollars if you redeem any two rebates any to rebase you get a $2.00 boost and you'll see if you click on the bell here you'll be able to see everything that you got it says you're 50% on your way towards earning the February boost so I'm gonna be redeeming some more and I'll get that $2 let's go to my offers again we have the fun dip and we have the Listerine these are on 2 separate receipts so I'll show you how to scan a receipt in a second but I also want to make sure that my bananas were added where are my bananas so in my offers tab I have my receipt my fun dip my Listerine and my bananas I also bought some mascara the other day so I'm gonna go into beauty and personal care and I'm going to look for the L'Oreal $2.00 cash back off of any item and this is for eye products so I did get some mascara I already checked the UPC when I was in the actual code you see here I'll add the two cash two dollars cash back and it should be added to my offers so I have a bunch of things that I can redeem right now I also want to show you that for Costco I didn't check my ibotta the week before so I did it a week later and I was looking through and lo and behold some avocado oil that I purchased was on rebate and I was able to here it is I was able to get the cash back a whole week later and get it into my account just scan the receipt and there it went so when you're ready to redeem your go into the store where your rebates are and you'll go to redeem just go to redeem at the bottom and Walmart makes it pretty easy because they have a QR code at the bottom of the receipt so hit continue and you should be able to just scan the QR code like that finding offers and it should tell you yes three matched offers awesome and it's saying you have three matched offers you have a $2.00 cash back for the L'Oreal and 75 cents for the funded quantity of two awesome collect your purchases of 350 and there you go you get three dollars and fifty cents back just by scanning your receipt so when you want to cash out you just go to my account and it'll show you here how much money you have available and you can withdraw it you can send it directly to your PayPal but if you start doing I bought it you fall in love with it like I did in terms of using it in retro actively and referring other people it will add up really quickly and I'm all about getting free money for things I would have bought anyway and barely any effort so that's it so that's pretty much it guys that's how I bought it works let me know in the comments below if you want any more I bought of videos or videos on specific I thought of hauls and how to use the app in more like while actually shopping and I'd love to do that for you so thank you so much for watching give this video like subscribe if you're new and I'll see you in the next video bye guys
