Shopping with Coupons: Myth #1

Myth #1: Coupons only result in small savings

This is the number one reason why most Canadians don’t use coupons—they believe that a coupon for $1 off isn’t worth their time or effort because they are only saving one dollar. However, if you saw a loonie lying on the ground in the parking lot when you came out of the store, would you keep on walking and not bend over and pick it up? Of course not!


Would you leave a loonie on the ground?

So why would you ignore the savings a coupon can offer but pick up the coin? Essentially they are the same thing—you must change your perspective and view coupons the same as cash in your pocket. Just imagine if you picked up a loonie every time you came out of a store! You would soon have enough change to buy a donut and coffee at Tim Horton’s! Therefore, if you could save a $1 at every store you shop at this week, you would also have enough extra money to buy a donut and coffee—they both have the same output. Changing your perspective is the first step to unleashing the power of coupons.
