Is Extreme Couponing Causing an Increase in Theft?
Last night Fox 12 KTRV did a story about local people stealing newspapers in order to get more coupons. I gave a brief interview talking about the increase in the popularity of couponing. You can watch the video here. Last week Cathy gave a similar interview for this Idaho Statesman article. You can read the article here.
Stealing coupons? Really people are doing this? I do not think that TCL’s Extreme Couponing is causing the theft of newpapers, but the show is causing a heightened awareness of couponing. Couponing can save you 90%, but I do not think it will continue to be as awesome if it is abused. We have talked about the false reality that TV can sometimes bring. It is important that good coupon ethics are used so that couponing can remain fabuless!
