I have been promoting the use of clipping services for quite a while now. As soon as I started using clipping services, I stopped buying the Sunday paper. Ordering from a clipper is way cheaper! You get only the coupons you need, they are clipped for you, and you can usually get the high value doubling coupons that are regional… and never in YOUR region!
Here is what you need to know about my favorite clipping services:
Klip2Save: K2S has no minimum purchases and will totally allow you to order just one coupon if you want. That’s because they charge a flat rate of $1.00 for postage, so you would never want to order just one coupon. Their stock is good and they get the much wanted regional coupons… and they get them earlier than the others! Their price is per coupon, so if you order 1, you get just 1 coupon.
My Coupon Hunter: MCH has no minimum order, no maximum order, and shipping is just the cost of the stamp (or free if you spend $5.00). One thing that you must know about MCH is that the price you see is for 5 coupons, not just one. If you order 1 lot, you will get 5 coupons! If you are looking to pick up just a few coupons and don’t want to spend much, MCH is the way to go! Also, MCH often has 20% off discount codes often, which helps us save even more! The down side is they run out of the good coupons very quickly.
Coupon Dede: Dede has more rules, but she also has more coupons! And since she has set limits, she does not run out of the very good coupons as quickly as the others. With Dede, you must spend a minimum of $3.00. The most you can order of any one coupon is 30 per 7 days, and many have limits of 5 or 10 per 7 days. Her prices are per coupon, and she discourages ordering just 1 of each coupon. If you don’t play by her rules, she will ban you! For shipping, she charges the price of the postage plus $.50. The good thing is that you earn points with Dede that you can turn into $$$ toward your next order! 400 points = $1.00 and the points add up quick! If you’ve ordered from Dede before, you probably have rewards waiting for you and don’t even know it! Go to My Rewards to see!
I hope this helps you decide which clipper to use! There are plenty of other services out there, and you can also find clippers on eBay, but always be careful! If you are not sure about the services, test them with a very small order.
