Extreme Couponing: Season Three Debuts May 28th

season 3 of Extreme CouponingTLC is ready to kick off another round of episodes from their popular Extreme Couponing series. Season three will kick off Monday, May 28th, at 10pm.

It’s unclear how many installments have been ordered this time around but the two previous seasons have had a dozen episodes each.

Here’s the press release from TLC:

CELEBRATE SAVINGS & SUMMER WITH THE RETURN OF TLC’S “EXTREME COUPONING”

Season 3 of Extreme Couponing premieres Monday, May 28th at 10PM ET/PT on TLC

[Los Angeles, CA]—The savings extravaganza continues on TLC as the third season of Extreme Couponing returns with all new shoppers, stockpiles and strategies. As part of TLC’s summer lineup, season three of Extreme Couponing premieres Monday, May 28th at 10PM ET/PT with passionate coupon-a-holics, and of course, nail-biting register checkouts.

Last year, TLC’s Extreme Couponing was viewed by an average of 1.5M P2+ and since that launch, the term “extreme couponing” has propelled itself into the zeitgeist resulting in a national conversation and awareness about coupon use. It’s been reported that shoppers saved $4.6 billion with coupons in 2011, $500 million more than the previous year. This increase is evidence that using coupons to save money is a habit that’s being embraced by Americans.

This season follows some new couponers who have unique motives as to why they love to clip n snip. In the premiere episode at 10/9c, viewers will meet University of Louisville student Dominique, who teams up with his fraternity brothers to throw the biggest toga party the university has ever seen. The only way they can afford to do it is if Dominique pulls off the most extreme coupon shopping trip he’s ever attempted. He pushes his frat brothers to any lengths to get the coupons he needs, including going door to door in togas asking for coupons and singing for coupons in the quad

We also meet Jeff, who comes from a dynasty of male couponers. Jeff and his brother Dan learned from father Dave, and now Jeff is teaching his son Sam how to coupon. At 8 years old, Sam is finally old enough to accept the family’s heirloom coupon box and its valuable stash of no-expiration coupons. But to fully join his family’s ranks as a fully-fledged couponer, Sam must first save at least 75% on his very first solo extreme couponing shopping trip.

Throughout the season, viewers will also get to know barter extraordinaire Aprille, who coupons for snacks that she trades for favors and car repairs at the car dealership she works at in Michigan. In Alabama, Minister Adrienne believes that paying full price is an abomination and spreads the coupon gospel to her congregation through her sermons. Amen to savings!

Sharp Entertainment produces the series for TLC; executive producer is Matt Sharp, co-executive producer is Rebecca Bruno.

This stupid show should be banned. I have been a couponer for over 13 years. This show has done nothing but cause me problems for the past few years.

You all can trust me for one, NO CASHIERS OR MANAGER TREAT COUPONERS LIKE THIS…..Couponers have always been treated like crap. Cashiers rolling their eyes and making smart comments. Managers coming over to see what is going on. Generally just being treated like a thief because we are getting a good deal. And dont even get me started on all the dumb cashiers & MANAGERS that dont know what : “one coupon per purchase” means. I have been couponing longer than most of them have had jobs & know all coupons say that because about 10 years ago, coupons that didnt say that could be stacked at the commissary. BUT this stupid show shows NONE of these problems.

Now I draw a crowd when I check out…..REALLY???? Its NOT that exciting folks, not even for me. I used to get nothing but impatient jerks behind me in line, sighing every time the cashier stopped to read the fine print on a coupon (“um, it says one coupon per purchase, so you can only use one…..”), then making the “I always pick the wrong line” comment and sighing even louder when I try to explain what they should have been taught about coupons. Now I have them stopping to watch me, waiting for the total with suspense & asking me where I get all those coupons….That one really pisses me off. I began as a couponer, did my own work and research, but these people want you to give away your source & spoon feed them.

This show also shows a LOT of coupon fraud. I am not going into the details, but I hope they get investigated. It would be a crime for regular people to do what they are doing, but because it is for a show, the stores and manufactures turn their heads. Disgusting.

Did you know you could use your bargain-shopping prowess to help make a difference? The ASPCA has teamed up with Extreme Couponing, encouraging shoppers to use coupons to help their local animal shelters, many of which can benefit from pet food, toys, and other supplies. We are also issuing a Facebook challenge, encouraging coupon-clippers who use their shopping skills for a good cause to take photos of their shopping excursions – visit http://on.fb.me/IMII0m for more info!
