Did you know September is National Coupon Month?
Well if you didn’t before, you better pay attention because SAVINGS.COM and VALPAK® are kicking off National Coupon Month with their 10,000 reasons to save campaign celebrating the long-term impact of couponing.
The majority of Americans dramatically underestimate the impact of coupons – in fact, not one respondent to the 2013 Valpak Readership Survey was aware that couponing has the potential to save them as much as $10,000 annually, and only one-third are using coupons to save today for future spending.
As part of the campaign, Savings.com and Valpak will host a 10,000 Reasons to Save Contest, which will award one winner $10,000 to jumpstart his/her savings efforts. Now through September 15, consumers are invited to enter by sharing their personal reason for saving at www.ReasonstoSave.com. The site also features money-saving tips and resources to help consumers take control of their finances with an eye toward the future.
I’m also thrilled to announce that I, along with my friend Kasey (Time2SaveWorkshops.com), will be serving as an ambassador for this campaign, helping spread the savings message to anyone who will listen!
But what Kasey and I also want to emphasize through this #ReasonsToSave campaign is that you also need to focus beyond the transaction to maximize your savings. By keeping your focus on the end result, your individual savings decisions become an exciting and necessary piece of the journey as whole.
Some important points to keep in mind on your savings journey:
- Set Tangible Goals
- Celebrate Small Successes Along the Way
- Consider the Timing of Your Purchases/Travel
- Where You Shop Makes a Difference
You can also win over $300 in prizes during the #ReasonsToSave Twitter party tonight (9/3/13) at 9pm EST/8pm CST. (Just make sure to RSVP at the link to be eligible to win).
Couponing has made a huge difference in the life of my family and I hope you’ll take advantage of National Coupon Month to see what a difference it can make in yours too!
