Clip This! September is National Coupon Month

By Zaneta Lowe  - bio | email | Twitter

COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - Everyone's holding on to their money a bit tighter these days and one way to save on groceries is by clipping coupons.  According to one survey, businesses issued more than 360 billion coupons in 2009 and buyers redeemed 3.3 billion.  That's up nearly 30% from 2.6 billion in 2008.

The use of online coupons has increased dramatically.  In fact, digital coupons can now be scanned at the checkout from a smart phone.

September is National Coupon Month.  Many people may wonder, where is the best place to find coupons?  Your local newspaper is a good choice.  Typically, there are two inserts in the Sunday paper.  One is from Smart Source, the other is from Red Plum.  Both also have online, clipping options.  Coupons.com is also a good source for web coupons.
