Small Businesses Can Benefit From Coupons

I often hear people say they do not use coupons because there are not coupons for the things they buy or need. I would challenge that, I think anyone can benefit from coupons.

For example,THE HUSBAND. He owns a small business. Being married to me means he owns a small business that uses coupons.

THE HUSBAND needed to purchase some fleece jackets to embroider with his logo . I started looking around and found a high quality jacket on sale at Belk for $29.99, down from $45.  We checked them out quickly one evening but I made him wait to buy them until I could find a coupon.

I looked around and discovered this weekend at Belk when you donated $1 to the Susan G. Komen for the Cure you got three 20% off a single item coupon. THE HUSBAND went back armed with this knowledge and purchased 11 jackets.

After the sale and coupons he saved $231.11! That is nearly 50%, and a lot of money when you are a small business.

If you are a small business I would also encourage you to sign up for Office Max MaxPerks and Staples Rewards programs. Both programs give you a percentage back on purchases and have weekly deals that end up being free after rebates. Signing up will also allow you to get coupons mailed to you.

Do you have any other advice on ways to save on small business expenses? Are there other specific areas are you finding it challenging to save in?
