Taking it to the Extreme – Part Four

Learn the Basics 

Review products for coupons and freebies

Websites such as BzzAgent and Tesco Home Panel are great for sending you freebies and coupons. Always go beyond the basic review. Always put in a little bit more than requested effort.  Take photos and add to the review. If a company can see you are willing to go the extra mile they will reward you with more freebies.

Get cashback on your phone

Cashback is growing here in the UK. It’s been about for a while in the US and we are finally catching up on the technical wizards in the USA. With cashback apps, you sign up and use digital coupons to claim special offers on specific items. You then get % cashback from the sale.

The two biggest cashback apps currently are CheckoutSmart and Shoptize.

How they work. Download the app to your phone and register an account. You can link these to your social media accounts normally. Open the app and browse through the offers. Then go to the store and buy the product. You then take a photo of your shopping receipt to prove purchase. If you qualify for the offer the cashback is added to your balance within a few days/weeks sometimes it is immediate but mostly you have to wait for the expiry date of the offer.

Sometimes no cashback is given, but a money off voucher for your next purchase or even a freebie. Remember the amount you’ll get back depends on the individual offer. So if you do not need money off another purchase or a freebie of something you will never use don’t bother. You will be spending money rather than saving it. Why would you need 16 boxes of Just for Men hair dye when you are a single parent of 3 girls? A bargain is only a bargain if it can be used or sold on.

Price compare

To proudly call yourself an extreme couponer you are going to need to study. You need to put in the hard work and research where products are currently on offer. Lucky for you MySupermarket takes away the hard graft for you. The Supermarket comparison site checks many major stores including Tesco, Asda, Sainsbury’s, Aldi, Iceland, Waitrose and Boots and tells you at a glance what’s cheapest and where. You can even set price alerts to notify you when a selected product has gone down in price so you know when to grab ya coat and run!
