My favourite is the lady who bought cat food - but doesn't have a cat.
And the lady who had the can storage system that rolled them back and forth in order to keep them in date order so nothing expires.
My favourite was the lady that got all the nappies and baby products. She didn't have kids, or a partner, but said "they'd come in handy if she did one day" LOL!!
WOW!!! How on earth can the shops be making any money?? That is just crazy.
To be honest I would be embarrassed to go to the supermarket and hand over 300 coupons.
There is no way I could do it either! It's a pride thing. If I can afford my groceries I'm not about to look like I can't! IYKWIM!!
I am fascinated by this show, but also horrified. My family owns a large supermarket, and my mum and I watch this show together! The thing that totally horrifies us (apart from the amount of money that the supermarkets/manufacturers lose by doing the coupons) is the time the staff waste serving these people! There was one episode where we counted 9 staff helping to serve the one customer! Take that over here that's 9 x $25 an hour, so thats $225 an hour that the customer is wasting in staff resources, and in the end they're not paying a cent for it!! And most extreme couponers say it takes them around 4-5 hours to do a big shop. Thats $1125 in wages that could have been spent doing something else!!!!!!!
We do have coupons over here, but they just have tougher regulations. For example, if there is a bottle of baileys on special for $28.99 and with a coupon it's $25.99 then that's it. You can't use more than one coupon, and you can't take any other offer with it. It's amazing how over there they can combine so many different offers and coupons!
