TLC’s hit show, Extreme Couponing, profiles America’s upper middle-class women who use loopholes in couponing and sales to buy hundreds of dollars of groceries with the end cash payment, out of pocket, to be under $10.00.
As Extreme Couponing catches on, America needs to beware of local economy crashes.

Splitting transactions to scam.
The purpose behind coupons is for the customer to try a product. A manufacturer circulates coupons to raise awareness about a product or product line. If the consumer can get a cheaper deoderant, she may try the one she has a coupon for, right?
Extreme Couponing will cause manufacturers to stop printing coupons as a marketing strategy and supermarkets to stop frequency card savings — eventually debilitating all of our pocket books. Most of us cannot nearly afford our groceries and household items without the frequency card and occasional coupon savings.
The Extreme Couponers are theives and taking advantage of getting items for free! FREE only crashes economies. NOTHING is free. Frankly, these women should seek counseling for their obvious lack of empathy to their neighbors who will suffer because of their compulsive couponing. The women are all obviously savings-junkies. These women are hording food. I really, really, really hope that some of these women are giving food away to food pantries but, as the footage on Extreme Couponing shows, these women stockpile the groceries and household items for themselves.
I will be writing more in depth on this subject in the near future but until then, please BEFORE YOU START EXTREME COUPONING, think hard about your potential involvement in a national economic crash. NOTHING IS FREE and I do not respect people who seek out “FREE”. I was always taught to work hard for what I have and that my efforts will show in my relationships and my material things.
Extreme Couponing is a mental illness, a thieving practice and a selfish way of life that WILL effect the rest of us if this fad catches on.
