I’ll admit it – I’m a coupon clipper. I clip coupons for everything! If I can buy a meal and get one free at a local restaurant, I do it. If I can save 30 cents on a dollar item, it’s worth my time to clip the coupon and sort it into my coupon organizer.
Before blogging took over my life, I clipped coupons on a regular basis the old fashioned way; from the Sunday paper. But times they are a-changin’, and it’s so much easier to do it online now!
Have you ever heard of Grocery Coupon Network? It’s one of the leading coupon lovers’ communities on the web. It allows you to find the best digital grocery coupons, discounts, and special offers from both local and national brands, and provides a reliable source for those looking to save money and time.
Grocery Coupon Network currently has over 800,000 active members and over 30,000 Facebook fans that together print nearly 1.5M coupons a month with a savings totaling over $2.2M!
And did I mention the community doesn’t cost you a penny to join? Simply enter your email address and a password and that’s pretty much it. You can start printing quality coupons right away. And not just grocery coupons, but coupons to save money at your favorite stores, too…you can even request free samples and try products.
But what I really wanted to tell you about is how you can win a $250 grocery shopping spree.
To celebrate its members, Grocery Coupon Network will launch “Mom of the Month” in conjunction with the upcoming Mother’s Day holiday. This Grocery Coupon Network Mom of the Month contest rocks – and it’s super easy to enter!
From May 2 to May 6, 2011, U.S. moms have the opportunity to win a $250 grocery shopping spree compliments of Grocery Coupon Network! That’s like 2 weeks of groceries for us!
And for us writers, it’s easy to enter – you just submit submit a one to two hundred word essay on how much you save on a monthly basis using digital coupons, and how you use the extra money…some people invest it, some use it for entertainment, some pay bills, and we use the money towards our vacation fund. What do you do with the extra cash?
Here are some more of the details: submissions that meet the specified criteria will be posted on the campaign micro-site, while also being displayed on the Grocery Coupon Facebook Fan Page. Other members of the community can vote, comment, like, and share tips with others via the Facebook page. From May 7 to May 9, 2011, submissions will be open to voting via the Grocery Coupon Network community. The winning submission will be announced via Facebook and email on Monday, May 9, 2011 at 2pm.
And that’s it! Here’s how I look at it: even if you don’t win, it’s still fun to share your ideas for how to save with monthly coupons, shopping strategies, and of course how you spend all that extra cash! My husband used to tell me that whatever I saved with coupons, I could spend it on clothes…talk about incentive to use coupons, huh?!
