With online coupons you can leave your scissors in the drawer and grab your cell phone or computer to nab these savings.
Some supermarkets, notably selected Stop & Shop and Giant stores, offer hand-held scanners that enable you to ring up your purchases as you shop. The scanner saves time and keeps a running tally of your spending, but there’s another plus: it tracks your location in the store and offers instant coupons. For example, if you’re in the detergent aisle, you might get a message offering and 75 cents off a certain brand. And you can use store and manufacturer coupons on top of that.
