SUPERSTAR SAVERS AND SKYHIGH STOCKPILES RETURN TO TLC
Season 4 of TLC’s Extreme Couponing Premieres Tuesday, November 13th at 10/9c
[Los Angeles, CA]—The savings extravaganza continues on TLC as the fourth season of Extreme Couponing returns with all new shoppers, stockpiles and strategies. Saving money is a lifestyle and has become the chic thing to do. Those ‘in the know’ don’t ever dare pay full price.
The fourth season of TLC’s Extreme Couponing premieres Tuesday, November 13th with two new back to back episodes at 10 & 10:30 ET/PT with passionate coupon-a-holics, and of course, nail-biting register checkouts. Meet a few standout savers:
· Julie is a Colorado couponer whose dream job is to be paid to coupon. It looks like she’ll finally have her chance when she answers an “extreme couponer wanted” ad for a Sober Home for teenage boys. To land her dream job, Julie must prove to Aaron, the home’s founder, that she can score 2 weeks’ worth of organic products for just $150, a difficult task that is made even harder by the boys’ antics.
· In Georgia, couponing duo April and Chasity have outgrown their large stockpile rooms, and the only solution is to go even bigger. April convinces Chasity to join “the building club,” and the two of them go shopping for backyard storage sheds to house their stockpiles. When April’s husband Clint says he could coupon faster than April and Chasity, the battle lines are drawn, and the ladies put their husbands to the test by putting their coupon binders in the men’s hands and sending them to the store.
· Most people have albums of baby photos and family vacations, but Georgia couponer Rudy collects photos of her grocery hauls. After every shopping trip, Rudy spends hours meticulously setting up her hauls so she can take a picture of them and hang on to the memories of her supermarket successes.
· New York couponer Susan is the original coupon queen. She has been couponing for over 40 years and saved hundreds of thousands of dollars in the process, paving the way for younger extreme couponers. She even has a coupon robot that mechanically sorts her thousands of coupons for her for each shopping trip. To commemorate her 40th anniversary of couponing, Susan will attempt to break her personal couponing record – $519 for $20 – and prove that even after 40 years, she’s still got it.

What do you think? Are you a fan of Extreme Couponing? Have you picked up any tips? Will you be tuning in to the fourth season?
I love the show it has given me lots of ideas. While I don’t have the stockpiles or the shopping trips these couponers do it has helped me to save money for my family. I don’t tend to follow rumors unless I was there I don’t believe what others are saying. Isn’t it funny the extreme couponers aren’t the ones talking? What I would like to know is will there be a new season in the fall of 2013 and will the seasons ever be put out on DVD?
Horrible show! No one in real life could duplicate what these shoppers do. They tell the store ahead of time exactly what the couponer will be buying so the store can order extra items and have them on the shelf. The show is basically a lie. It hurts people who use coupons appropriately to save a little money.
I liked it until I heard that they worked out deals with the stores to allow double and triple coupons and basically suspend any coupon policy at the stores. It’s fun to watch one of these if you can duplicate it at home, but just making stuff up for TV is misleading. They should have a disclaimer.
At any rate, I quit watching.
