Worth Reading: 10 Rules to Play Fair While Shopping with Coupons

Paula Worthington at Monroe on a Budget has written an excellent article about rules concerning the use of coupons. I especially like rule number seven number, which states, "Don’t lie about where you live". I’ve seen the Internet chatter about people trying to get a good coupon by changing their zip codes when they use sites like Coupon.com. In fact, one time I read a Blogger suggest to her readers to change the zip code in order to get a coupon for $1.00 off any cheese. One of her readers came back and said she did it, but when the coupon printed it was only good for Utah. For me, changing the zip code just goes against what the program is intended for. You can read Paula's article by following this link:


Paula's list is a terrific set of rules for all of us to follow. Which one is your favorite rule?
