This might sound a silly but it’s perfectly normal to want to try and find every kind of coupon or discount code available in an effort to dramatically reduce the price of the items you are buying. However, if you had no intent to get something in the first place then it is still money spent that you would have otherwise saved. It’s surprising still though when many people insist in using coupons that they discovered simply because it was about to expire.
I guess you can say for many it’s almost like you are literally throwing your hard earned money away by not using it up. Even though again you are actually spending your money. I think oddly enough the way I have been able to pass on coupons that I don’t really need is that I just find them too much where it’s like a regular sales price. It would have to be something ridiculous like 90% off a $1000 item I was actually semi interested in where at worst I can resell it.
Many times the same coupons come out frequently too. The best example is with companies like Bed Bath and Beyond where it seems like they give away this discount coupon so much that you can pretty much get one n demand whenever you feel like it. If you really feel the need to use it then give it to someone who actually needs to buy something with it right now instead.
