How to Coupon and Receive Free Stuff for Beginners
I Love Couponing
I have been couponing and finding ways to get free things for a few years. People all the time ask me, how I do it? It takes a lot of researching and a lot of time to coupon and find the best deals. I research many Facebook groups such as Couponing at Dollar General Too, Couponing at Kmart, or any other store you want to learn to coupon at. Join all these groups on Facebook. There is a lot of useful information in these groups. People go to the stores and try different coupons to see if it works and will post about it. I have learned as long as it does not exclude the item, it is balanced couponing. Sometimes you will have a coupon for a 40 oz gallon of Gain for example. The coupon doesn't exclude the 2oz. Some stores will let you use it on the 2oz and some wont. You need to find out your store policy.
How to Coupon at Kmart, Sears, and Shop Your Way
First things first, link your Kmart account at Shopyourway.com. There is a section called Sweeps. Play the sweeps daily. Kmart gives points away everyday and everyday I play, I win points. 1,000 points equals $1. It surprises me that Kmart can afford to give all this free money away. Sweeps is located under the title rewards if you are on a desktop. Click rewards and you will see sweeps. If you are on a cell phone, there will be three straight lines on your top left. After clicking the straight lines, scroll down and you will see Sweeps.
You will also want to download the Winit App and join the Facebook group called Win Club. Most of the time, I win more on the Winit App than on the sweeps. In the Win club group you will find special games that only members of the group can play. Everything is linked to your Kmart account and you will be suprised all the ways to win free points. Talk about a suprise, Shop your way also gives suprise points based on your shopping history. If you click on your account you will find your reward points and suprise points. Under the suprise points, you may find points that may say, $5 off of $40 to be used at Kmart or Sears. There usually is exclusions that you cant use them with other coupons or suprise points. However, you can use the suprise ponts along with your regular points. Last week, I purchased a small oven that you place on your countertop. I used $11 off of $35 in the home department and then the rest in regular points. I only paid $1 out of pocket for the oven and a wash cloth. I had to add a washcloth to reach my $35 in the home department. It was a great deal. I also purchased online and did free shipping to store.
If you do not have time to play the games at Shop Your Way daily, always make sure to play on Wednesdays. Every Wednesday there is a game that goes live called Wild Wins Wednesday and everyone wins. At some point during the day the game will also become a doorbuster. A doorbuster is a suprise and extra points will be added to your account somewhere between $1 and $5. Some Wednesdays, so many people are attempting to play this game that it crashes. Just keep trying to play, it is worth it. I also win the most points on Wednesdays.
Personal Shopper at Kmart
Kmart offers a Personal Shopper. A personal shopper can help you get the best deal possible. He or She can also send you coupons that you might need. A personal shopper is completly free. I am also a personal shopper. You may add me as your personal shopper and I can answer any questions you might have. There is always ways to save. If you are looking for the best deal on a product, I can tell you how to get it the cheapest way possible. You can add me as your personal shopper below and I will answer any questions you may have as fast as possible. My daughter also likes to play and help her mom get free stuff at Kmart, I just had to add her picture.
I can not believe I never couponed in the past to save money. These days, I save thousands of dollars a year using coupons and you can too. I will never again pay full price for things like laundry soap, toilet paper and toothpaste.
