Season two of Extreme Couponing will air next month. I will not be watching it. I don’t like it and I’m not afraid to say it.
I came across a preview of season two and I am pretty much disgusted. I feel as though my heart is at the bottom of my stomach with just this one preview–I already know that I don’t need to see the rest of the show to know that it will be giving us couponers a bad name.
This one preview does it. TLC I hope you are happy. People who use coupons the “right” way and use them to actually support their family in a reasonable means, you have now created a door to making manufacturers more aware of the fact that there are “shelf clearers” out there and those who take advantage of the system.
The sad thing is that TLC is getting the bad rep for the people they are putting on their show. In the first season there was misbehavior, fraud and dishonest people–second season? who knows what there will be.
I know many of the Extreme Couponers from season 1 and they are amazing people who are doing nothing but take care of their family with coupons.
This show is doing nothing but making it harder on those who don’t find it necessary to clear shelves and want nothing but put a good word out there about coupons.
Words can not explain how disappointed I am in the people who have proven to the country that they misuse coupons, clear shelves or are dishonest. Do you really want it that much harder when you check out? You put yourself on TV and make yourself look a fool in front of millions of people. People who are cashiers, managers and store clerks. You have put a red flag on all of us who may carry a coupon binder–talk about being discriminating.. checking out with coupons—has never been harder. I am not the criminal or selfish person that you have portrayed me as.
I want nothing but to provide for my family.
For those that are new to couponing: If you choose to watch Extreme Couponing or found this site after you watching the first season..let me simply say that that is not couponing. Couponers are not selfish, do not clear shelves and do not misuse coupons. Please remember that coupons are not a right and that misuse is against the law.
If you want to learn real and honest couponing tactics–I hope you continue to follow Southern Cali Saver.
