Does SavingsAngel teach or endorse "extreme" couponing? In short - No.
Rather, we support ethical couponing. Which includes, but is not limited to, the support and teaching of couponing that is within store guidelines, manufacturer intent, and coupon redemption specifics, and is also respectful and considerate of other families and shoppers.
We are the founders of Coupon Integrity, whose core values are:
The promotion of the use of both manufacturer's and store coupons only as intended:
(a) Using coupons only on products included on the coupon; including any size or variety specifications.
(b) Using coupons in accordance with all purchase requirements listed on the coupon.
(c) Honoring any special coupon usage limits listed on some coupons. (Such as not using more than one of a like coupon per household.)
(d) Respecting the expiration dates on all coupons.
The promotion of fully honoring store coupon policies:
(a) Honoring any per transaction coupon limits imposed by individual stores.
(b) Purchasing only products matching both a store coupon and a manufacturer's coupon whenever employing coupon stacking.
(c) Following any limits on coupon doubling.
The promotion of obtaining coupons in only ethical manners:
(a) Only printing and using the quantity of Internet coupons approved by the manufacturer. (Such as honoring "limit one per household" restrictions.)
(b) Steering clear of any coupons sent around the Internet via email or other methods not approved by the manufacturer.
(c) Only using newspaper coupon inserts from purchased newspapers. (i.e. Not condoning any theft of coupon inserts.)
(d) Not purchasing coupons from third party sources (e.g. coupon clipping services).
(e) Only printing internet coupons from approved coupon sources.
(f) Never photocopying coupons.
The promotion of education and the understanding of consumer's rights as an honest coupon user:
(a) Learning my local store coupon policies.
(b) Participating in appropriate and respectful dialogue with store personnel if an issue arises.
(c) Remaining mindful of other families and shoppers when purchasing in quantity.
(d) Promote "paying it forward," through sharing coupons with others, and sending expired coupons to overseas military families when possible.
