Top Customer Reviews
1. If you expect practical shopping tips like those from ShopSmart (I'm not affiliated), I doubt that you'll find any.
2. There is nothing new in the content (dopamine, .99 price tag vs. round number, outlet stuff, superfakes, etc.), and the attempt at humor did not work quite well (maybe just me?).
3. There is no coherent structure, no flow of ideas. It reads like gossipy tidbits bundled together: contemporary, historical, scientific studies, stock market, Turkey, yadayada.
Bottom line: if you are interested in the origin and evolution of coupons or want to know why retailers prefer red color, this book can be entertaining to you. If you hope to be more savvy in shopping, I doubt this book can help.
Read the book based on having seen the author interviewed...
He would be the first one to tell you to make sure you get a discount for the book...
There's a fair amount of interesting help in this book, but if you're shy and reluctant to ask for a discount you may as well not bother with it...
I.e. If I don't live in NYC and have never been invited to some high end sample sale and this book offers no tips or information on how to gain an invite then I don't consider it a how to. Instead it offers a long colorful description of the clientele designed to give the reader a visual.
Or, on the other end if it tells me the state that I live in is one that does not double face value on coupons and offers no tips or suggestions to compensate what good dues that do?

Book was stupid. Unless you are a scientist studying brain function while couponing. Nothing but talk about brain functions and stuff like that while couponing.Published 15 months ago by Janet Bates
