Extreme couponing in South Africa
Many people visit the DSTV website looking for information on extreme couponing in South Africa. This of course is the result of a popular show on DSTV called extreme couponing. Coupons are relatively a new phenomenon in South Africa with very few retailers offering them. Shops which offer them include Pick n Pay and not offer them very often or not offering very good ones.
In case you have noticed, in the US, many people combine coupons with in-store specials in order to maximise their savings. This is the other issue in South Africa, where every coupon or discount has the condition that, “this coupon/discount cannot be used in conjunction with any other in-store promotion/discount/special”, which basically means that if you have a coupon for R0.50 off, you can only use it for the maximum of R0.50 off, and nothing more.
Hopefully with the popularity of the show, and the popularity of the group buying sites that were launched in 2011; couponing in South Africa will be used more by retailers and this will no doubt create our own Extreme Couponing South Africa.
