North Shore Chicago Coupons

It’s no secret – coupons are making a comeback! Given today’s economic news, it shouldn’t shock anyone that coupon clipping is back in vogue – if in fact it ever wasn’t. North Shore Chicago residents are no strangers to high-income living, and a 2007 PriceRunner.com survey says that the more a person makes, the more likely he or she is to use a coupon.

“When it came to higher income households, earning $75,000 or more, coupon usage rose again, as did frequency. Eighty-four percent of the higher income households had used online coupons at least once in the last six months, of which 48 percent had used online coupons four or more times in the same period.”

And online coupons are becoming a more popular option for consumers. ConsumerLab.com reports a major increase in usage since 2005:

“The number of American adults using online coupons rose by 39%, to 36 million, between 2005 and 2008, according to a new survey conducted by Simmons/Experian Research and Coupons, Inc. Online users account for nearly one-quarter (24%) of the total 148 million consumers who use coupons, compared to 22% market penetration as of last year.”

Here in the northern suburbs, there’s no shortage of coupon opportunities – especially online.
