WELCOME TO AFC!
Be sure to check out all the great rebates people share here also. Sometimes you can find offers for things you already buy, then all you have to do is follow the directions on the forms, invest a stamp in mailing them off, and wait for your money to come rolling back to .
You can find descriptions of current offers here Mail In Offers-Forms - Grocery Coupons & Deal Forums - A Full Cup

Then, check http://www.afullcup.com/forums/forms-rebates/ for people who have the forms you want.

May you always be blessed with ample coupons, great deals, and courteous, efficient cashiers!

You can find deals your stores in the stores forums Grocery Coupons & Deal Forums - A Full Cup
You can find currently valid coupons listed in the AFC coupon data base: Grocery Coupons- A Full Cup - Coupons
Walmart==> Walmart - Grocery Coupons & Deal Forums - A Full Cup


You'll have questions, always ask. We are always happy to answer.
to AFC!

Just wanted to personally welcome you to AFC

If you have any specific questions feel free to ask away!
One of the best tools I personally have found is just read everything! I spent the first week or two just reading the forums and learning what was what. Check out the new posts the hot posts and today's posts... This is one of my favorites to check out daily... Freebies - Grocery Coupons & Deal Forums - A Full Cup Also read the blogs (any of these can be accessed just by clicking the link at the top of the pg)


On a side note in order to send someone a private message (PM) you must have posted 5 posts. So adding your own thoughts or asking a question here or there on topics of interest to you help in that area.

Happy Couponing! And Welcome to the world of saving $ even in times like these!

Welcome to A Full Cup!!


It's great to have you here!

Remember to start slowly - there are new deals every day (so make sure to check out AFC every day )!

Everyone here is real friendly - so if you have any questions, about any posts you see, be sure to ask! You can also ask me, by clicking here and sending me a message or posting on my profile!

Be sure to get the Sunday paper, EVERY Sunday! You don't have to clip the coupons, or even look at them - just put them in a file folder, so that when you do decide to get in on a sale, you can have all the coupons you might need!

And if you have any questions - this is a great forum to check out - Ask the Savings Experts!

Once again, Welcome to AFC

Hi and welcome to AFC! THE best, and most informative, forum on the internet!
Here’s some advice for your couponing journey…

** READ READ READ READ READ READ READ!! And then READ some more! Learn your local store’s coupon policies - GROCERY STORE FORUMS. Print those policies out and keep them with you at all time! You’ll be surprised at how often cashiers and even store managers are unfamiliar with all the intricacies of their own policies!

** Don’t be afraid to ask questions - COUPONING 101!

** START SLOWLY! If you jump in too fast, you’ll get frustrated. PLEASE don’t think that if you don’t build a massive stockpile overnight, that you are a rotten couponer! It takes time and effort! BUT, if you'd like to peek at what your stockpile COULD look like one day, check THESE out!

** Not sure how to begin? Do a David Letterman… Make two TOP TEN LISTS! One for food and one for non-food items that you and your family use on a daily or weekly basis. If your family is a HUGE pasta eater, then noodles and sauce should be on your list. If you have 4 teenage boys, then body wash/soap is a MUST! Walk through your house as you are making your lists. Then, go to the grocery/drug stores WITHOUT BUYING ANYTHING! Take along a pad of paper (or 6) and make notes on current prices for those items on your Top Ten lists. Do this once a week for a few months. Start learning the sales cycles. Start learning the fluctuations in prices and soon you will be able to figure out what your stock-up prices should be. Start your stockpile with items your family will use regularly. Nothing worse than staring at a stockpile with a whole bunch of stuff (gotten for free or really cheap) that no one will EVER use!

** Start clipping your coupons! Sign up for a newspaper delivery – this is THE only way to guarantee that you will receive coupons in the papers you buy. Not all newsstand or drug store papers receive inserts as the inserts will always be placed in subscriber papers first. CALL the newspaper first and make sure of which coupon inserts they carry! Ask about special subscriptions – Sunday or weekend only, discounts for multiple Sunday papers, etc. Start asking your friends and family members for their coupons. You’ll be surprised at how many people just toss them in the garbage – YIKES! **Need complete sets of inserts? No problem! Click COMPLETE INSERTS for LOTS of choices!

MOST OF ALL – HAVE FUN! If you ever have any questions you’d rather not ask in the open forums, click JESSIE to ask me directly! Glad you’re here in the AFC family!
