Every year, there are billions of dollars of coupon savings available in the U.S. market. Of those billions of dollars, shockingly few end up actually being redeemed. In fact, it adds up to an average of around $11.60 per person.
Not Clipping Coupons? You Could Be Missing Out On Thousands In Savings Yearly
If you are not clipping coupons, you are seriously missing out. You could be saving a lot more than $11.60 per year – in fact, you could be saving thousands of dollars per year.
Many people do not realize this, but the average couponer is not poor. People who live in households bringing in $100,000 or more in annual income are twice as likely as those in the under $35,000 bracket to use coupons. The average couponer is also well-educated; university graduates are twice as likely to use coupons as those who never graduated from high school. This is because they realize how much those cost savings could amount to.
So if you have your eyes on early retirement, coupons are a great way to get there faster. You could save in excess of $2,000 per year, and those savings could compound tax-free if you invest through your 401k.
