What can you say about the Krazy Coupon Lady? She is one of those online gurus that has given us another reason to visit Wal-Mart. For some reason, Wal-Mart still allows her to share her secrets with us. For five days in a row she managed to sell me $50 dollars worth of free coupons.
You might be thinking how could the Krazy Coupon Lady have been able to do this without using her very own list of stores. Well, it seems that she used her own list of Wal-Mart supercenters. I don’t know how she was able to do this but it does make sense. After all, who hires a public speaker to give a two-hour speech about Wal-Mart and its superstore strategy for buying groceries? Wal-Mart has been conquered by the superstore trend so let’s shop smarter.
The Krazy Coupon Lady has inspired many like myself to use her techniques for saving money at Wal-Mart. Before I learned about her tricks I was just like the rest of the crowd. I went to my usual route of going into my local Wal-Mart and buying whatever I wanted to save money on. I am not a big spender, so I knew I wouldn’t be getting any freebies from the Krazy Coupon Lady.
Well about a week ago I went into Wal-Mart and looked around. I saw everything they had to offer me to save money. Since I like to shop at home when I can, I went ahead and picked up an aisle already half empty. The Krazy Lady had left her few free coupons on the back of the display. I went back to my shelf and I found a bunch more of the same coupons.
So I went back to the freebies section and I found another aisle with a ton more freebies. Again I found the same coupon on each of the shelves. I know she must have at least five of them or more in her store. But still, I couldn’t believe how many freebies I was receiving. I came out with maybe five to ten freebies from the Krazy Lady, but now I have spent two days and spent nearly a hundred dollars just trying to track down that one coupon.
Since I spent so much money trying to find that one little thing, I decided to try something else. Since I am a big shopper, I know most stores have weekly deals. Usually there are at least two or three great sales that week. So I went to Wal-Mart and checked out the weekly ads.
Sure enough, I found a coupon for Krazy Woman from the same place I found the free coupons. This time, it was a coupon code for twenty percent off the total price. Since I am not a huge shopper, I am not going to waste my money on Krazy Woman. That’s okay though, because I found another awesome sales site that had a coupon for forty percent off the regular price. So I knew if I were smart, I could save some more money.
About the time I was about to leave the store, I got a call from my sister. She asked me about the lady tide coupon I printed out and asked if I still had it. Well, I guess I gave her the good feeling I had about the lady freebies, and I told her I sure do.
Since the lady freebie expired, I decided to take advantage of the coupon I got for the crazy lady. The problem was, the coupon was only good for six days. That was too long. Six days was not long enough to find the best deal, unless you already knew where to shop. And since I was already in the know, I knew where to shop.
I went back to the lady freebie and used my new code to get an additional twenty percent off my order total. That saved me over five hundred dollars, or about three hundred and fifty dollars considering the total value of my gift cards and the cash I still had on my register. I was able to complete my order and pay for it in my PayPal account in less than three days. That PayPal account is connected to my debit card, so that meant I didn’t have to wait at all for the money to come in the mail.
If you are like I was, you love the lady printable coupons. You will probably always use them. And if you don’t, you will keep using the same code on future orders, which means that even when your present krazy coupon lady expires, you will still be saving money. You will just be saving it in a different way.
