    I am new to the world of "super savings" and "coupon matchups" where people carefuly collect coupons and match them up to sales at their stores and special deals to maximize heir savings. There are also sites online that help with this as well as online goups where people can swap coupons, and trade coupons for coupons they actually need.

    Who else does this? Any tips on this?
    Any good sites on this?

    I like to wait on days my local stores will double your coupons to shop. You can get items free this way. There are some people so good at this that they can get thousands of dollars would of items for less than a hundred. There is a tv show about them. I just don't remember the name. It's sort of like a treasure hunt. Others describe it as a chess game.

    Share your super savings fun and tips.

    It depends on where you shop. Kroger and publix will double coupons up to .50 everyday. Plus if you have a kroger card they will send you coupons in the mail.

    I once got a $200 bill down to $60, my all time best and i'm proud of it!

    Quote:I love krogers! I tend to avoid publix because they are expensive though they have great service and great products. I'll have to check that out. I get all sourts of coupons from krogers. Three times in a row I got "free 20 dollars worth of groceries with every prescription you fill at our pharmacy" coupon, up to 60 dollars... and only three times. because each time i got a coupon from them for that, i maxed it out each time. We just happened to have had a lot of prescriptions to fill at the time (allergy meds mostly. it was a rough year for allergies.)

    Publix is mostly the 'BOGO. That's where I rack up there, especially if I have coupons on those items.

    you can buy coupons on ebay...I buy lots of coupons-and sell lots of coupons

    also a few sites I use:

    http://www.livingrichwithcoupons.com/

    http://hip2save.com/

    http://www.couponsandfreebiesmom.com/

    http://gatewaytosaving.com/

    and a few others...If you have FB there are a ton of sites on there.

    I stockpile a lot of things...

    Walgreens, CVS, Rite-Aid, and Kroger stores are the best. Also there are coupon sites where you can print coupons... like www.couponbug.com
