For those of you who aren’t familiar, extreme couponing, popularized by
the TLC show, involves working the system. You buy things only when
they’re on sale in large quantities and you use copious amounts of
coupons, instant rebates, etc.
Sometimes you actually MAKE money. I’ve never done it, but I’ll let you know how it goes.
Anyway, I got to thinking about the word “coupon” and an argument I had with an older friend a few weeks ago.
My whole life I’ve pronounced this word “Q-pon” (like a distant relative of the Q-tip). He ridicules me and says it’s pronounced like “coo-pon.” In some cultures, I’ve even heard it pronounced “coo-pin.” So please, humor me. How do you pronounce “coupon?”
