I hope it’s clear by now that I really like coupons. Actually — LOVE. I love coupons.
I was talking deals Wednesday with Sarah Mock from HowIPinchAPenny.com, when I had a thought. When are coupons not cool?
I could think of one possible situation:
You’re out on a dinner date with the man of your dreams. He’s nice, polite, and handsome. You’re hoping to snag a kiss by the end of the night. He calls for the check, and you’re gazing sappily into his eyes. He’s perfect.
Then, he throws you a curveball. A tiny paper reading “buy one get one free entrée” or “10 percent off” emerges from his wallet (or, along similar lines, a gift card).
It’s a coupon. And it’s kind of awkward. Personally, I think I’d take it in stride. Maybe he’s smart, thrifty and good at planning ahead.
Other women might question his financial stability. Is he cheap? Will he be able to take care of me?
On that note, I ask you, when it comes to deals and dating are coupons sexy or stingy?
