Guide Review - Review of Savings Angel Coupon Site

I found Savings Angel hard to use. Part of the problem is that I don't want to spend that much time printing coupons one by one on various coupon sites. In addition, I only using coupons on things that I really want to buy, so I didn't bother to take advantage of free and nearly-free items that didn't appeal to me.

Admittedly, I gave up before maximizing the savings. I didn't take the time to meet with my Savings Angel mentor, and I did not use the full combinations of coupons as they suggested, because I didn't want to go to so many different sites to print them out.

The program did help me to use coupons from the Sunday paper when they were on sale, but after a while I realized that while this was helpful, it wasn't worth the $19.95 monthly fee, since I wasn't putting the time into saving as much as I could. If you do want to put that kind of time into it, though, and you have friends and family members who would be willing to sign up under you, Savings Angel can really help you save a lot of money each week on groceries. Since I didn't, I ended my membership after three months.

Savings Angel is awesome!, Member jennifer5309

I have been a member of Savingsangel.com for over 5 years and I think that the service they offer to members is incredible! I do not have to spend hours looking at ads and matching up coupons. I can log on to Savings Angel and search for what I need or what is on a really good sale, add them to my list, clip the coupons and go shopping. They do offer a new feature where you can add items or categories to their Price Watcher system, that way you will be notified if something that you are looking for is on a good sale.
