    Reading through that site it seemed like they just tell you where to get the coupons for everything, then it's up to you to search them out and cut them. Then, once you find them, you go to the store-making sure you read the fine print (i.e. you have to buy two to get the discount, etc.)-and then have to hand over a fistful of coupons when checking out?

    Okay, it's gotta be easier then that if you're so excited about it!What am I missing? LOL
    You just basically have to keep things organized. Each insert has the date listed in small print on the side. I write it big on the front of it. I have never used GG, but I assume they tell you what insert each coupon is in (Red Plum/P&G/Smartsource and the appropriate date). With that info, its easy to get the coupons together.

    The fine print is pretty much the same on all of them. You cannot use 2 (manufacture) coupons on one item, you have to pay sales tax, buy the right items listed... Really, coupons only know the value they are for and a general group of products they work on. There are some coupons out there that are coded to literally work on anything. If you just know what the big print says, you are fine. Cashiers don't even really care. They just scan away and only stop if the register doesn't accept a coupon for some reason...

      OK I think I'm taking the plunge with the Grocery Game. I just did a review on our budget and we spent $950 on groceries for the month of October and only $240 dining out.

          yep - i will send you a little email referral and then all you have to do is plug in my email address! so easy! then you should refer a couple of your friends or family members so by the time your trial is up, you'll already be able to get some credits from referrals!
