Come on we're MEN. We don't use coupons. We drink beer out of the bottle, and not those little fruity drinks with the umbrellas. We watch action packed, blood and gut movies... not those mushy "chick flicks". We are men. We don't use coupons. We like paying FULL price. Oh wait, do we?
Makes you think doesn't it? I will be the first to tell you that when it comes to money and paying for purchases, I too have an ego. Using coupons is an ego blow and a pride squasher because our ego and pride wants us to prove our selves successful. We can take care of our family with out the help of a measly piece of paper. Besides, what's $.50 right? We are MEN (insert grunts and growls here)!!
What if I told you that I save over $12,000 per year just on groceries using coupons? I'm not talking "extreme couponing" either. Just using a coupon for the groceries I buy. That's not to mention the cash back I earn through sites like Ebates.com. Aside from using coupons for food, I also save on things like clothing, entertainment, oil changes, travel, and electronics. Doesn't sound so measly now does it?
So in 5 years with my coupon savings (the average length of an auto loan), I could pay for a BMW 528i with a 3.0L DOHC 24-valve I6 engine. How's that for manly? So in my opinion, using coupons shows not only intelligence, but that you are fiscally responsible too!
