Coupons cannot be redeemed for money. Technically, they are worth about 1/100 of a cent if you read the fine print. So coupons are not money.
But to a seasoned couponer, coupons are like money.
We use coupons to lower the amount of money we have to pay the store, and the store gets reimbursed for the amount the coupon states (as long as we use it properly).
Coupons are so much like money, that CVS recently changed their Extra Care Buck coupons to look more like money and include the $ symbol. They are saying, “If you through out your ECB, it is just like throwing out money.”
So, coupons aren’t money. But they can save you money, and many couponers treat them just like money!
Do you consider your coupons to be like money?
