My wife uses coupons and averages saving 60 to 70 percent using coupons. she goes to alot of FREE sites that tells her what is on sale and what coupons are out for the item. No need in paying someone when the info is free on the net. Just have to look for it for a few minutes.
No need in paying for whats free already

why pay for what is free on the net?? This BeCentsAble sounds like another thing I saw on t.v It was a site called the grocerygame and someone was basically copying and pasteing the free info about good deals with using coupons on to a site and charging people to look at the site. This BeCentsAble sounds like another scam.

this BeCentsAble crap has been floating around hickory and a few people have been taken in and paid the 25.00 and found out that its basically crap you can already get from other sources for free. BEWARE folks, this is just another rip off and with money being as tight as it is, save your money and dont waste your time!

Why can't you be happy for the people who have found a little part time job and are teaching a skill? Why does everything have to be a scam? I sit and teach people at my table how to coupon and I charge a little. Is there anything wrong with that? Becentsable is providing a service and I would believe that you could get that 25.00 back the first week.

But with money being as tight as it is now, why would anyone spend 25.00 for what they can get for free? Thats plain stupid!Save that 25.00 to buy groceries with after getting the good deals info off the net for free. Thats where the company that is trying to sell it to you gets it ( for free) then charges you 25.00 for it. Plain S-T-U-P-I-D!!!!!!

Would someone like to teach me right here as I don't have time to do research or teach myself?

Go to these sites:

www.afullcup.com
www.hotcouponworld.com

click on the link for the stores you shop and then read the posts about the items that are on sale and what coupons to use with them to get them for free. right now, lowes grocery has a coupon for frenches mustard being on sale for .79 cents. there was a coupon in the paper a few weeks ago for .50 off frenches mustard. lowes doubles coupons up to .99 cents. take the store coupon and the manufactors coupon and you will get the mustard for free. when this happens, its a good time to stock up on stuff like that.
read the posts on those 2 sites and they will teach you everything you need to know.

Wow, I totally do NOT appreciate those rude comments!

These workshops do cost, yes....but this is information from about 8 months of research that the 2 founders of BeCentsAble did. It teaches people all the strategies in one sitting, so they do not have to do all the research themselves. Also, yes, I started saving before I heard of BeCentsAble, and everyone I knew kept asking me how I do it. It took me about 6 months to figure it out myself. Then I went to a workshop and learned so much more! Anyway, so I would take about an hour or more to sit down with people and tell them how do it...much of my time spent!! I was so excited about BeCentsAble because now I share with people how to save in an organized fashion and I get to earn some income for ALL of my time spent sharing. Yes, IT IS work to "teach" people on any subject, whether it is math, english or how to use coupons. Thank you.

Seriously people, if you dont have anything nice to say, just don't comment.

Jackson, you should tell your wife to become an educator! She would be great at teaching these workshops since she already knows the strategies, and I am sure people ask her how to do it anyway.

Hi Maggie,

I totally agree with you! I have thought about becoming an educator myself. I'm not one yet and I already know there are a lot of reasons to educate and attend workshops.

A lot of people learn better in person than by reading on the internet. It could take hours for someone to learn all the ins and outs of saving by researching it online as opposed to learning it in 2 hours at a workshop. Only 2 hours because someone has all the info needed (all in one place) and none that isn't (that you would be sifting through on several different websites) organized and ready to present in an easy to understand format.

There is a lot more to saving money than clipping coupons and watching sales ads.

The most savvy shopper can still learn something new and I bet if Jackson's wife went to a workshop she would be surprised when she learned a new money saving tip that she hadn't thought of or found on the internet yet.

There are thousands of things that people can teach themselves through reading and research and there are thousands of people that would rather pay someone to teach them instead of teaching themselves.

I would rather pay $25 and have someone teach me what to do than spend hours reading off the internet to teach myself.

There are also people out there that don't use the internet, that are not good readers and that are slow learners that, without the workshops, would never learn how to save a TON of money. And, the people teaching them should receive a fee for the service, just like a math tutor would.

A lot of people pay to go to workshops and seminars to better their skills further than what you can by just reading it on the web or in a book.

Keep up the good work Maggie!

By the way, name calling and labeling isn't necessary to get your point across.

There are a lot of people out there that have specialized skills and decide to teach people what they know and charge a fee for their time and expertise. You can read how to do just about anything you want to do on the internet for free, but people would still rather pay someone to teach them.

I think one of my nerves has been hit...LOL

I just recently did the super doubles at harris teeters and did rather well I think. Before coupons and rewards card, my bill was 106.09 and after they scanned the coupons and the card, I paid 13.87
I didnt have to take a class to figure this out. I didnt spend 25.00 for someone to tell me to use my brain and match the coupons to the item and see how much it will cost after coupons. If it aint free or very very cheap,dont buy it. Money it way to tight now to pay someone to show me how to do this . Esp. since the info is free on the net and if you look, you will find it, for free. I gave alot of the stuff I got for free to the local food bank. They really need help too.

You are exactly right...you are paying $25 to learn how to cut coupons and look for coupons on the net. And you 'learn' to stock pile items. They also believe that you are saving money by running to 5 different CVS's in order to 'get a good deal'. What about gas? What about the time that you are wasting?

I think couponing is basically commom sense. I dont like to see companies charging people for what is free on the net. BeCentsAble is known as a company that takes advantage of people , just like in this case. Dont waste your hard earned money on stuff that is free.

why charge someone for what is already free on the net? taking advandage of people when they are trying to save money is not a good thing to do. If you want to help people, dont charge them 25.00 for FREE info. They can use that 25.00 to buy food.

I do not see any rude replies to your posts. Just people who dont want to see others cheated by having to pay for info that is FREE on the net! Thats pretty low if to hit people when they are already down. I have to wonder why anyone would waste their hard earned money on this class when its FREE already just for looking. I would be ashamed of myself MISS MAGGIE for trying to screw people over... Get a REAL job!
