Happy National Coupon Month with giveaways!

Posted September 1, 2013


Happy National Coupon Month to all of you! It is the official month of the coupon and we are going to have some fun celebrating its awesome power starting right NOW with a coupon giveaway!

But first… a little history.

According to the PMA (Promotion Marketing Association), the first recorded coupons were handwritten from Coca-Cola in 1886. That’s 127 years ago! Imagine all the coupons that have been redeemed in the last 127 years. By 1965, one half of Americans were using coupons and in 2011, according to NCH Marketing Services, couponers saved 4.6 BILLION dollars using coupons! Way to go Smart Shoppers!

In 1998, couponers around the globe (not really) began celebrating National Coupon Month every September and this is why we are celebrating with giveaways all month long!

Is that cheering I hear?


Let’s kick off this coupon celebration with a Coupon Giveaway for an envelope full of coupons worth over $50!

To enter, simply post how long you have been couponing using A, B, C, D or E in the comments section below.

A = Brand spanking new to the sport and just started couponing.

B = Been couponing less than 6 months but not a total newbie.

C = Pretty coupon savvy with at least 6 months under my belt/coupon organizer.

D = Comfortable couponer with 1-3 years of experience.

E = Seasoned pro with 4 years or more of couponing experience.

I will randomly pick a winner on Friday, 9/6 at 1:00 PM and post the winning name soon after that. Good luck and Happy Coupon Month!
