Extreme Couponing series, weekend shopping ads in the papers are now getting my attention these days. If these weekend ads are any indication, looks like there are good savings shopping on a weekend as opposed to shopping on weekdays. Don't just take my word for it. Just check out the papers this weekend and be amazed at what you can save. For example, one hypermarket offered a savings of around RM7 (approx USD2.33) off a large bottle of Dynamo liquid detergent and RM8 (approx USD2.67) off for Breeze. There are savings too on Nescafe and other foodstuff, bath gels and other toiletries as well as price-reductions on fresh produce such as vegetables, fruits, fish and prawns, and lots more.
Unlike in the U.S., the coupon system has not caught on here and what few coupons we get are from newspapers primarily or from the occasional flyers and inserts. Carrefour at one time printed coupons on the reverse of their receipt, sort of like Catalinas, but has discontinued this practice a long time ago. Dominos Pizza has coupons affixed on every pizza box which come in useful for the next order.
A number of hits on 'Coupons' on my site yesterday made me do a quick check on it and was amazed at the coupons available online. Here, let me share a few sites that you (mostly for U.S. shoppers) could pick up a coupon on two from.
This one is good for when you visit Japan..

Sites that offer group discounts have suddenly sprung up in Malaysia. Found this site, Milk A Deal.
Have been contemplating getting this Portable Iron/Steamer. It's now going for RM60, usual price at RM139. That's a 57% discount. If you are interested, hurry, because the offer is good for just ONE more day.
Another item ladies would find useful is a self-adhesive invisible V bra. Also, ONE more day left to buy on this item. Like all discount sites, this one too gets updated with new items on a daily basis.
