Extreme Couponing Education: Coupon Clippers

Because they don’t tell you everything on reality television we are here to reveal the secrets of Extreme Couponing.

Fab FruGal Andelin wrote me last week asking a few questions about coupon clippers. I thought they were questions you all might like the answers to…

The Coupon Clippers

Coupon Clippers:

Do they all require a paypal account?
Yes most of the take paypal, but the great thing about paypal is you do not have to have a paypal account to use it, just a major credit card or debit card.

How long, on average, does it usually take to receive your coupons?
It certainly does vary by location. If you order from an East Coast seller and you live on the West Coast it will take longer to get your coupons. We recommend Manufactures Coupons to West Coast buyers, they are based in Washington. Most of our other coupon clippers are East Coast based. On average plan for it to take 2-3 days to get your coupons.

How does it compare to using ebay for coupons?
Coupon clippers and ebay can be very similar especially if you only use “buy it now” like we do. Sometimes the clippers are less than ebay though.

Can you got whole inserts or just individual coupons?
You can buy both whole inserts and individual coupons from most coupon clippers.

How come the coupon clippers have coupons I did not get in my newspaper?
Coupons vary by region. Coupon clippers can be a great place to find coupons that your area did not get.

Which are your favorite coupon clippers?


  • as a western wa resident, to keep my $$ local, i use Coupon Clipper Kelly

    it just so happens that kelly is a “friend of a friend” and always is so prompt and helpful! 🙂

  • Coupon Dede is my go to coupon clipper. Just this past week, I placed an order at 2PM on Friday. My order was shipped just 2 hours later…and in my mailbox on Monday! I’ve been using Dede’s service for several months now. The days of frustration when there are no newspapers left (or the coupons have been removed)…or the “good” coupons aren’t in my region…those days are gone. Honestly, I’ve been couponing for decades, and never thought that I would use a coupon clipping service…haha! Never say never…Go Dede! BTW, I live in Virgina, and CouponDede is in Texas! Good job!

  • Do coupon clippers have access to coupons b/f the come out in Sunday’s paper? Can you preorder them so you have them for the sale cycle you want? Thanks!

    • Some clippers do get the coupons before they come out. I am not sure about clippers but I have seen ebay sellers who pre-sell coupons before they come on Sunday. I just varies by the seller.

  • My father has started selling whole inserts from the Oregonian on ebay and I was just wondering how he would go about getting his name on your list of coupon clippers.
