TOP 500 REVIEWERon September 10, 2010
Susan Samtur is the coupon queen and has previously written Cashing in at the Checkout; and appeared on many TV shows giving breathtaking demonstrations of saving money at grocery store checkouts. This book will show you how and convince you that it is worth doing. My only complaint is that, having been a confirmed coupon, sale, rebate user for years, I cannot agree on the little amount of time it takes her to accomplish her amazing goals.

For those of you that feel $20 saved on every $100 spent is terrific, she can show you how to save more, and even if you do not use all of her methods, including saving proofs of purchases and squashed boxes for rebates you can still bank much more than you are doing.
There are great hints for filing and storing and using coupons. She has charts on how to save more money at supermarkets with sales and coupons than at the super stores with bulk items - something that will come as a surprise to many shoppers.
There are web sites to get coupons, including hers and major manufactures and stores. She gives good hints on marketing techniques and the store's practice of moving goods around, so you have to spend longer looking for items and may be tempted to purchase other items.

If you are already a dedicated, organized coupon user, rebate mailer there is probably not much new for you in this book. However, if not you can probably use these hints and determination to save money. This would also make a good gift for those just graduating or starting to live out on their own, even if they have watched you- the super shopper for years.

If you like paying for everything offered, then this book might be for you. I find that in order to take advantage of this book, one must purchase from Susan many other things. Nothing is free. I much prefer the Coupon Mom book. She charge nothing and has a great set up.

So, if you want to spend bucks to get into couponing go ahead and follow susan samtur.

Written by the original coupon queen, there was little I learned from this book that I couldn't learn from the Internet. There are better books about couponing than this. The author directs the reader to her website which she makes sound like there is a lot of resources available to the new couponer. There might be but you have to pay to join. I felt very deceived.

I noticed right away that Ms. Samtur repeats a lot from her previous books. If you've never read any of them, you might glean some useful information from this book. Otherwise, save your money.

I placed this book on hold back in August with our local library system because there are to few copies. With a couple people ahead of me I expected to wait a month or so , but when time after time I wasn't called to checkout the book I finally placed an order with Amazon for this book and two more copies along with it. I should have come to Amazon first to say the least . I will give this book a four star rating because it was well written and the author obviously knows what she is talking about when it comes to saving money. I purchased several books with this first order and was very pleased with this book as well as two others. Would definitely recommend this to anyone who has been couponing for years like myself or someone just starting out trying to scrimp and save as much as possible . Thanks for a great read.

This book offers very little advice about couponing and decides to focus more on rebates and the like. I found this surprising as I rarely see rebates available for many items, yet somehow the author claims that she spends upwards of 5 hours per week submitting rebates and collecting thousands of dollars per year through these offers. Does she share where these rebates are available? Sort of. She mainly promotes her website, which costs money and looks extremely amateurish. It might be worth the fee, but she does not give any indication of the kind of rebates she will share. I could see this being a big disappointment and decided to skip joining due to the fee.

From my reading of the book, the author is trying to keep up with the technology of couponing but adopting it at a very slow pace, which could hurt her readers/followers in the end.
