Clipless Coupons= Less Savings?

Here's some not so good news (in my opinion) about coupons. Stores are beginning to experiment with "paperless" coupons.

I am a big time coupon user. I use coupons for groceries, take-out food, books, etc. etc. Almost every store that will take a coupon, I try to use one. I also order from Couponclippers.com and stock up on coupons.

The use of "clipless coupons" bring up several questions. What happens if eventually all stores go "clipless" with their coupons? First, shoppers will have to get the store loyalty card, which some are opposed to because stores track purchases. Second, if "clipless" coupons become the next big thing, will "paper" coupons disappear? Will this give stores the power to limit (1) coupon per item, per shopper card? For example, they would load on the shopper card, (1) coupon for 50¢ off General Mills cereal and that's all you get? Instead of being able to go to the store with (5) coupons and stock up on cereal?

The possibilities of the stores further reducing shopper's savings is very likely. And what worse timing, with grocery prices going up and up! I hope paper coupons aren't phased out and replaced entirely with clipless coupons. It will not be good for the consumer.


Mid-Week Update

I braved the super cold temps here in NE Ohio and went out to Target today. No good clearance at all!!! I got a few things I needed, some Valentine's day cards and that was it. I guess the next good clearance to look forward to is Valentine's Day. And then Easter is early this year, March 23rd. So expect the stores will be putting out Easter candy, decorations, etc. a few days after Valentine's Day (if not sooner!)

Are you having (or going to) a Super Bowl party? Here are 30 recipes to check out!
