Coupon Clipping Services – Coupon Manicurists?

22 Aug, 2013

Do you go to a nail salon for your manicures?  If so, its not because you can’t do the job yourself, but because the professionals do such a nice job.  I say that the same logic applies to clipping coupons!

Yes, in a way, the coupon manicurist does exist, under the name “coupon clipping service”.  A coupon clipping service provides coupons for you, neatly trimmed coupons and grouped together in the quantity that you need.  Now that eBay will effectively cease coupon listings come September 1, the independent coupon clippers are more important than ever.  Let me help you find a coupon clipping service to meet your “couponicure” needs.

First let’s address the cost of a coupon clipping service.  The best clipping services charge a fee around $0.10 per coupon clipped for you.  That fee includes the coupon, which is very much like nail polish in that it is the physical item that you take away as part of the manicure service.   Clipping services are great to help you stock up on great deals.  If your alternative is to buy extra Sunday newspapers at $2.50 or more, then a clipping service can be a better  use of your money.  For some of us with arthritis or other disabilities, a clipping service is our only path to being able to coupon, and the service fee is small in comparison to the savings.

In addition to varying fee structures, some of the clipping services variables that you should consider include:

  • Shipping location
  • Minimum quantities of each coupon
  • Minimum order value
  • Shipping methods and fees
  • Quantity limits
  • User-friendliness of their website
  • Order processing speed and other customer service features

With our Food Bank project, our household had to be one of the biggest users of coupon clipping services.  We’ve used services from coast to coast, and the list below represents only the ones with our best ratings – at least 7 out of 10 on Brad’s impossible standards.   Note that CouponFleaMarket.Com is a multi-vendor site dedicated to coupon clipping, and many eBay sellers are in the process of moving.  These people work hard.  At 10¢ per coupon, imagine how many coupons you have to clip to earn a decent living!
