10 Things I HATE About Coupons10. Having to really SEARCH for coupons for items I normally buy
9. Coupons that require I purchase more than one. If I'm buying a thing for the first time [and there's a chance I may not like/use it], I just want one.
8. Fake coupons. Have you ever felt a bit set up when you've made it to the aisle with your "coupon," to find that all you had to do to get the deal was buy the item?
7. Coupons worth less than $1.00
6. Coupons that require an account/a subscription, and a printer
5. The extra work they create. Finding, printing, clipping, organizing, and then remembering to use them [before they expire].
4. Expiration dates
3. Fine print
"Wait a minute, what's all that small print there
at the bottom?"

2. Paying a price I'm not normally willing to pay, AFTER the discount. If we're on a [tight] budget we hope a coupon will stretch our dollar, or make an expensive item we've been eyeing [more] affordable. But, we likely don't know the end price of the item until we're standing in front of it - and after all we will have invested by that point, jaw clenched, we'll often pay the higher price.
1. Vague "Exclusions." After all that we go through to get a coupon to the register, JUST LET US HAVE IT. How are we to know that our one item [exclusively purchased by women with babies] doesn't actually qualify as a "baby item"?? In my humble opinion, the number of items/brands excluded should NEVER exceed the number of items to which you can apply the coupon.

I'm after the best prices - the real deals - without the hassle of
stacked coupons, store cards, and points
I may never redeem.
