This essay will be focusing on the use of coupons to cut expenses while enrolled in college. There are many ways to utilize coupons to cut expenses such as physical coupons, online, mobile, rebates and many more I will discuss. First let's look and see what the real meaning behind utilizing coupons is. It is more than just saving a few cents here or there if the techniques are used correctly. Many times you have to use many different sources together in order to maximize your savings. The first time I looked into using coupons I thought it was just paper coupons and had no idea the vast sources for coupons. One of the other sources is online coupons. Some of these you have to print off yes but sometimes you can just use the promotion number or use when buying online. The savings are not just strictly food items either. There are coupons for everything. Once I found this out I was hooked and had to just see how much I could really save. Me being a college student every dime counts so weather it is for food, electronics, school supplies or clothes I am all in. Here is another source I use which is mobile coupons. I can sign up for a certain service to send me coupons via text message and just present my phone when checking out. Star bucks is a big one I use as all of us college student need caffeine to keep us going. The other source I found are rebates. This source you may not get the money back right then but it seems to be larger amounts. After you have found the types of coupons that work best for you then it is time to find a technique to apply to those coupons. There are many techniques available the one I like the most is stacking coupons. This technique is where you aquire several coupons from different sources or different offers and use them on one product. When you do this in most cases the item ends up being free. Yes I said free! That is very hard to come by in this day and age to get anything free. So for a college student this like a Christmas present or birthday present. I have to admit at first I thought using coupons were a waste of time until I got my first item for FREE. There are many website out there, such as Dealspotr, that are very helpful in giving you tips and pointers on how to use coupons. These sites teach you techniques and how to put them to use to maximize your coupons and get the most savings. Some of my friends have even landed rebates on electronics where they got them for FREE. This for a college student can be a gold mine if used properly. It is like this contest from Dealspotr for a scholarship to help with my college funding. I see coupons the same way. I hope my essay to the reader and my fellow college mates it was able to shed some new light on how helpful using coupons can really be.
