Extreme Couponing

The Art of Getting Massive Discounts on your shopping.

I was idly watching Sky and something caught my eye, there was a trailer for a programme called Extreme Couponing. The whole programme appears to be about collecting coupons, in order to get massive discounts off your weekly shopping.

Having done a search of Sky, the first program that I can find about it it on

Wednesday at 10 PM.

” Four shopaholics explained their passion for coupons, including Amanda, who has stockpiled 3000 rolls of toilet paper, and the “crazy coupon lady” who dumpster-dives the discounts.”

Sunday 9:30 PM

” Missy plans to make over $50 using coupons. Meanwhile, can super-frugal Amy buy over $400-worth of groceries for under $10?”

I have been great Fan of Couponing an have enjoyed rewarding benefits using grocery coupons from Walmart or Finish Line Coupons for buying sports merchandise.

  1. It is so interesting that Sky is running this program. I wonder if it means we might get coupons in the UK?

    I grew up in the US and my mother has always had a stack of coupons in her bag. She will never let herself buy anyting without one. What day she shops also is dependent on which stores are offering double coupons.

    I would quite like it if we had coupons here then we could work at beating the supermarkets a bit more and since coupons come inside newspapers perhaps having them would help the ailing newspaper industry.

  2. Hello Viviana

    I take it then that couponing is far bigger in the US? I am not surprised it’s just another example of how in the UK we are being ripped off!

    I recently had a weekend in New York and was amazed just how much more you get for your money compared to hear in the UK.

    Just wanted to also say how much I love your blog: http://www.theleantimes.com/

  5. Most of the things you see in this show wouldn’t work in the UK – they’re either disallowed by policy or would simply be refused by the supermarket staff (including the manager). Also no stores in the UK have double coupon days, so the possible savings are nowhere near as lucrative. Thrifty shoppers in the UK have to be satisfied with occasional freebies, not entire trolleys full time after time!

    • Looks like it is another way in which we are ripped off in the UK!

      I recently had a weekend in New York and was totally amazed how much I got for my dollar. Quantity and service far outstripped the UK.

  6. If you are in uncomfortable position and have got no cash to move out from that point, you will require to receive the loans. Because it will aid you definitely. I get student loan every time I need and feel myself fine because of this.

  15. I just love watching it on tv here in UK
    God this country needs to get into the 21st century.. 1000’s of family are starving here
    but the greedy food chains and even greedier goverment dont think about this
    we must waste 1000’s of tons of food a year through sheer neglect in how we shop for bargins
    the tax on food here is extreme,Food chains also instead of giving food away
    through atleast a ton a way a week in food bins for collection
    marks and spencer and sainsburys are the main contributors to this
    food wasting crime..when ppl are starving
    i just wished i had the opertunity to extreme coupon.. if we all had it more and more countries who are starving would get more food
    and our troops more food packages
    And 98% of familys would have 3 good meals aday in side them

    How can we start a campaign for extreme couponong here in uk
