  1. I would pay for items that are hard to find coupons for, for example, Quorn and Maranatha and such. I know they are out there, but in my area, we don't get them in any inserts, so I have to print online, and I am limited to one or two. I buy cases at Whole foods and need a lot of them, so sometimes I get them off Ebay. I think I would pay up to $5 or so for 20 $1 coupons, because I would still get a deal.

    I dont think I would. I have bought coupons on ebay before though. I usually would wait for the items I like that dont have coupons out and I stock pile. Fruits and Veggyies would be great to have coupons but i dont know if i ever see that happening. If organic fruits and veggies did have coupons i would pay maybe .25 for every dollar i recieve off.

  3. 1-Would you ever pay a fee for exclusive coupons?
    Not unless the coupons were organic/natural and paid for themselves when used.

    2-How much of a fee would you be willing to pay?
    1/5 of their value or less

    3-What type of coupons would you expect for that fee?
    Organic high value coupons, anything less than $0.75 wouldn't be worth the energy of paying for it

  4. 1-Would you ever pay a fee for exclusive coupons? – YES!

    2-How much of a fee would you be willing to pay? – About $1-$3 per booklet

    3-What type of coupons would you expect for that fee? – High value coupons and maybe coupons for free items!

  5. –I would be reluctant to pay a fee. However, if they were very high value coupons for great items, it would be something to consider.

    –The fee would definitely have to be in ratio to the savings.

    –Lots of organic/natural high-value coupons.

  6. 1-Would you ever pay a fee for exclusive coupons? Yes

    2-How much of a fee would you be willing to pay? 10-20% of value

    3-What type of coupons would you expect for that fee? high value that got you 50% or more off the item

    -Bucher

  7. 1 – i don't think so. it seems like a fee would negate the point of a coupon.
    2 – IF i did, i would only want to pay a flat yearly fee.
    3 – i would expect something high value, if not free!

  8. 1) The coupons would have to be pretty outstanding if I were going to pay to save money.

    2) I don't have an exact amount that I would pay, but I would want to be able still make the savings worth my time.

    3) I would expect coupons with high value and for quality (but not obscure) products.

  9. - Probably not
    - For an example : I am a member of B&N and pay $25 for a year. I buy about $700-$1000 from them each year (saving at least 10% with my membership)- that's a cost of about 25% of my savings.
    -If we're taklking groceries, I'd expect 30-40% savings. Other products 10-25%.
    dmarie824(at)aol(dot)com

  10. 1- I think I would if the savings were worth it in the end.

    2-I think the idea of a flat fee is good, but I would think a monthly opt-in fee.

    3-Coupons that are difficult to find for high-quality organic or vegetarian options.

  11. -Would you ever pay a fee for exclusive coupons?
    Probably not, unless the fee was super super low

    2-How much of a fee would you be willing to pay?
    Around $5-10 per year

    3-What type of coupons would you expect for that fee?
    The same that you currently offer!! Organic, high quality food

  12. 1. I would not pay a fee for coupons, I don't think I would anyways…depends on what is offered.

    2. A monthly fee possibly but I'm cheap. A couple of dollars.

    3.Really high value coupons.

    Thanks!
    keepthecheeze(at)gmail(dot)com

  13. I have in the past and then I found the coupons not to suit my diet. So I would be very wary of doing it again in the future. I try not to eat a lot of processed food and that is where a lot of the coupons are featured.

  14. I don't think I'd be willing to pay, unless it was for something that it is almost impossible to find coupons for, like organic produce. I use coupons to save money, and honestly don't even like to spend the extra money to buy multiple papers to get coupons. So I guess my answers would be 1. No, 2. Nothing 3. n/a

    ajolly1456 at gmail dot com

  15. 1) No, not unless they were so amazing that the cost would be a pittance compared to what I'd save. Oh, and I don't want to print them out, the cost of ink would ruin the savings!
    2)$5 a month
    3) Stuff I use all the time – food, toiletries, baby things.
    ohmiss14 at yahoo dot com

  16. 1) Yes (if they were all organic)
    2) It would kind of depend on the dollar amounts of the coupons.
    3) All organic and they would have to be “high value” coupons. If I could find the same coupons on my own, by searching the web, then I wouldn't want to pay a very big fee.

    Thanks, Nina S.

    Nina211979 at yahoo dot com

  17. IF I were able to make atleast a 70% profit from using them then YES.

    How much I would be willing to pay would depend on what type of coupons they were or whether I feel that I would have enough use for them. Overall probably not more then just a few dollars.

    I would expect coupons that aren't offered elsewhere. I'm not going to pay for offers that I can go to another website and get for free AND I would expect them to be coupons that are rare and high dollar. There are a whole lot of organic brands I love that don't have any coupons or very few That I Would Be Willing to Pay to have access to.

  18. 1). I would consider paying a fee for exclusive coupons.

    2). I would be willing to pay up to $5.00 per month.

    3). I would expect to see high dollar amount coupons (i.e. $2 and up off). Also, it would be great to see high dollar coupons for organic foods, so that shopping at wonderful stores like Whole Foods could be more feasible!

    Thanks so much!

  19. 1-Would you ever pay a fee for exclusive coupons? Maybe. Depends what the product is. This is how Groupon works.

    2-How much of a fee would you be willing to pay? Half of the product or less.

    3-What type of coupons would you expect for that fee? High end products or products with a certain quality level.

    cecefleece at gmail dot com

  20. 1. I would only pay a fee for exclusive coupons if the coupons were really exceptional and if they were for items that I use on a regular basis.
    2. I would be willing to pay 1/4 of the amount of the item.
    3. I would expect coupons of items that I use on a regular basis and coupons of items that don't usually go on sale or anything like that.

    [email protected]

  21. I would be willing to pay for coupons

    I would expect to receive high dollar or free coupons for the cost incurred. I commonly buy from coupon clipper sites and will pay 5 or 10 cents for a coupon. It is easier for me to order them and buy mulitiple items then ask friends and family to save inserts. Plus some coupons are limited to different areas so I have access to new and different coupons.

    I would be will to pay no more than 10% of the coupon face amount. So 10 cents for a $1 coupon.

    Melissa

  22. 1-Would you ever pay a fee for exclusive coupons?
    -Probably No. If I buy something on regular basis and the discounts are worth it, then may be.

    2-How much of a fee would you be willing to pay?
    -It depends on the cost of the products and how much money I am saving.

    3-What type of coupons would you expect for that fee?
    -Items that save substantial amount of money

    Sonali Sethi

  23. 1-Would you ever pay a fee for exclusive coupons? Yes, but I don't because the stores where I would purchase them from do not offer them. The ones in the past have not fit my needs and I did not end up using them.

    2-How much of a fee would you be willing to pay? Very minimal, but I think it would depend on the services or products.

    3-What type of coupons would you expect for that fee? Something that saved me a lot of money or offered something exclusive for members only that was actually worth it to me.

  24. 1)Normally I would say no, not worth it, but honestly, it would depend on the coupons. As you know, it's hard to find coupons for a lot of the healthy items, so it could be worth paying a site in order to get more of those.

    2)The fee would have to be pretty darn low. It would have to be low enough that I wouldn't be upset if I had to pay it monthly but didn't end up using any coupons that month. Or..if it were per coupon printed, it would have to be low enough that the coupon was still worth printing.

    3)It would be great to see coupons for free items or $2 or more off. I feel it would have to be for at least $1 off.

  25. 1) I would not probably pay a fee.
    2) If I was convinced otherwise, I wouldn't pay more than $12 a year.
    3) I would expect free products, BOGO and high-value coupons.

    wealthyimmigrant at gmail dot com

  26. No, I wouldn't pay for coupons. it pretty much defeats the purpose. Plus, I sometimes don't get around to using a coupon though I fully intend to. I think it would end up costing me more than I would save! lol.

  27. I would pay for high value coupons that would result in free hard to get items – i.e. frozen pizzas or produce

    I would not pay much. I would expect to pay cents for each coupon since I do not want to waste all of my money on the coupons itself.

    High value coupons or hard to get coupons, such as produce, dairy, and organic coupons

  28. 1-Would you ever pay a fee for exclusive coupons? No, I am not interested in paying for coupons.

    2-How much of a fee would you be willing to pay? if the coupons were really great, maybe a subscription rate of $5/year.

    3-What type of coupons would you expect for that fee?BOGO, maybe a free for a new product.

    Trista
    tristamj (at) hotmail dot com

  29. 1- Would I pay a fee for exclusive coupons? Yes, if they were for the natural and organic foods that my family eats or items for specific allergens like gluten free products

    2- I would be willing to pay a monthly fee for access to high value coupons – $5 or $30-$40 a year

    3 – I would expect high value coupons and free coupons to try new products. High value would include between $1 and $5 as many natural and organic items are very expensive. I would also like to see coupons for fruits and vegetables. there would also need to be a minimum of coupons available each month if a fee was involved.

  30. 1-Would you ever pay a fee for exclusive coupons? Yes if they were for items I rarely see a coupon for or a high value.

    2-How much of a fee would you be willing to pay? 1/3 of the value

    3-What type of coupons would you expect for that fee? organic foods, personal care items of high value, hard to find coupons

  31. 1. Usually no, only yes if it was a hard to find coupon.

    2. 1/4 the value.

    3. A high value coupon that makes for a GREAT deal!

    kristisdeals1 at yahoo dot com

  32. 1-Would you ever pay a fee for exclusive coupons?
    Maybe. If that fee included other services or value, I might, like coupons that come with the purchase of a good or service, or a subscription to a magazine.

    2-How much of a fee would you be willing to pay?
    It depends on the value I'd be getting out of it and how long it last for.

    3-What type of coupons would you expect for that fee?
    Coupons for products that aren't run-of-the-mill. Expensive, high-end, or products that rarely seem to go on sale. Coupons for organic or natural brands, things sold at Whole Foods or co-ops or for pricey items like VitaTops.

  33. I would pay minimal fee for exclusive coupons. With that being said the fee should not go above $5 -$10 depending on the value of the coupon, since we are trying to save money. I would expect the coupons to be for things that I would use! Don't give me $3 off foot powder give me coupons that are for food, detergent, or hygiene!

    Thanks,
    Tonya Foster

  34. 1-Would you ever pay a fee for exclusive coupons?
    maybe. depends on how good tehy are

    2-How much of a fee would you be willing to pay?
    50% or less

    3-What type of coupons would you expect for that fee?
    i would buy them on a per coupon basis like groupon

  35. I might pay a fee but I would expect almost free or free product coupons and how much I would be willing to pay depends on the coupons themselves. Not sure if you are asking about a per coupon rate or monthly but my answer would depend on what type of situation was set up.

    [email protected]

  36. I would pay a small fee but only for coupons of worthwhile things – natural and organic.

    I would pay 1/10 of the value.

    I would expect a good value – lots of coupons offer 25 cents off of a product that costs $6. That is ridiculous. Not worth my effort in procuring it.

    [email protected]

  37. 1. I would not pay
    2. Maybe for just a couple of dollars
    3. I might be tempted if they included coupons for gluten free items (we are a gluten free household, and coupons for those items are hard to find!)

    Ang
    ang_vaughan at yahoo dot com

  38. No, I wouldn't pay for that. Even a small yearly fee wouldn't tempt me bc I'd be worried that I would forget to use the q's. The only way I think I may consider it would be if it were at a store I frequented often and the q's were put on my card that I use each time.

  39. I don't think I'd pay for coupons.

    If I did pay, the fee would have to be very small, so that even if I just used one or two coupons, they would make up the cost.

    I'd expect the coupons to be high dollar if I paid for them.

    Thanks for the giveaway!

  40. Would you ever pay a fee for exclusive coupons? Yes!

    How much of a fee would you be willing to pay? It would have to be more than double the amount of savings.

    What type of coupons would you expect for that fee? Percentage off coupons for retailers.

  41. I would pay a fee,but to what extent is hard tosay. If it was going to be a free item or a money maker than I'd pay more ya know? What type of coupons….well that depends too. I don't come across too many high value organic or green item coupons. Obviously if there is an amazing deal to pair with the coupon that matters too. I haven't yet paid for coupons aside from buying newspapers.

  42. 1-Would you ever pay a fee for exclusive coupons? – probably not

    2-How much of a fee would you be willing to pay? – $1/booklet

    3-What type of coupons would you expect for that fee? – High value coupons and maybe coupons for free items!

  43. 1. If it included coupons for items that my family uses a lot.
    2. If most- if not all- of the coupons were of things that I'd use, then I'd pay 5% of what the booklet was worth in coupons.
    3. Free items, high value, multiple of items that I frequently use.

  44. 1) I don't think I would pay for exclusive coupons unless it would result in a product being close to free!
    2) A small monthly/yearly fee
    3) Very high value coupons for food products

    xmeliss182x (at) yahoo (dot) com

  45. 1. It would have to be really great coupons to pay a fee.
    2. If I did pay a fee, it would only be for a few dollars a month or a flat yearly fee.
    3. I would only pay for very high dollar coupons on items I use. Thanks for entering me!

    savingmama at live dot com

  46. i would pay $2 to $3 for a really good coupon. it would have to be a big ticket item or for something that was free.

  47. I would only be willing to pay a very nominal fee IF the coupons were for items that don't offer coupons (or rarely offer coupons), such as grass-fed beef, organic produce, coconut flour, coconut oil, nitrate-free & sugar free bacon, etc.

    $10/year max if I will save at least $30 using the coupons

    I would expect coupons for “real foods” – nothing processed. This is all we are eating these days due to my daughter's health issues. I can't buy anything that has been pre-made, so I look for produce coupons, meat coupons, egg coupons, etc. that are natural, organic, etc.

    susan (at) cravingthesavings (dot) com

  48. I have only purchased coupons through my Sunday paper so far, but have been looking lately into other resources (since you don't always get the great ones in your area's paper). :-) creedamy[at]yahoo[dot]com

  49. 1-Would you ever pay a fee for exclusive coupons?
    I haven't yet but have realized that sometimes there are coupons that are worth paying for. I haven't figured put where to buy from either.
    2-How much of a fee would you be willing to pay?
    It seems like coupons are usually 10% of face value. That seems reasonable. Especially considering that someone has to go through and cut each q!
    3-What type of coupons would you expect for that fee?
    I'd expect whatever coupon I was in need of.

    Thx. Shanirichart at gmail dot com

  50. 1-I would only pay a fee if it was to get access for hard to find coupons, such as organic brands and organic fruits and veggies.

    2-I honestly wouldn't go too high, but it still needs to be a deal for me in the end.

    3-Like I said, hard to find organic products and organic fruits & veggies.

  51. 1-I would pay a small fee for hard to find coupons like organic meat, dairy, fruits and veggies.
    2-maybe 10% of the coupon's value
    3-Same as #1. High value or free coupons mainly.

  52. 1. It would have to be very minimal. There are plenty of free coupons out there. 2. Nothing. I save tons without paying. 3. would have to have several FREE coupons for healthy foods or maybe produce

  53. 1 – May be willing if fee is small and they were for very high value coupons
    2 – Very minimal
    3 – It would have to be on something that I really need and already purchase

  54. 1. I might be persuaded to pay a fee for exclusive coupons if it was financially profitable.
    2. Depends on the value of the coupons and the length of time the fee covers. Maybe somewhere around $5-$10?
    3. High value, including organics.

  55. 1-Would you ever pay a fee for exclusive coupons?
    Not unless the coupons were BOGO or really good deals.

    2-How much of a fee would you be willing to pay?
    10% of their value or less.

    3-What type of coupons would you expect for that fee?
    high value coupons for organic or any household items.

  56. I would only pay for coupons if the coupons were hard to find Q's and really good savings, free or steep discounts. The savings would have to far outweigh the cost and bother of purchasing them. I would probably pay up to 30% of thier value. I would expect to receive coupons for organic goods, produce would be great, restaurants, household items or anything to is highly purchased item but hard to find coupons for (like produce)
    Thanks!

  57. 1-Would you ever pay a fee for exclusive coupons?
    Yes

    2-How much of a fee would you be willing to pay?
    I would pay up to 40% of their value

    3-What type of coupons would you expect for that fee?
    Coupons for free products or high amounts off

    k k g r a y 8 8 at yahoo

  58. (1)Would you ever pay a fee for exclusive coupons?
    Maybe, but only if they were high prioity items that we use all the time.

    (2)How much of a fee would you be willing to pay?
    10% of their value

    (3)What type of coupons would you expect for that fee?
    Organic/natural coupons, high value coupons, etc. I once paid $8 for dog food coupons on ebay, but they were $8 each and I got 20 of them…

    amy jim 2003 @ bellsouth . net

  59. 1. I would pay a very small fee, I feel they should be free as the retailers get the money back
    2. If it were the only way to get good, I mean great coupons the fee should be very, very small
    3. Same as Alisha S. – “High Value coupons, organic/natural products, coupons that came in multiples” – by high value I mean a few dollars off

  60. 1-Would you ever pay a fee for exclusive coupon? Maybe depending on the outlets for the coupon.

    2-How much of a fee would you be willing to pay? Not much especially if it a mail order company

    3-What type of coupons would you expect for that fee? coupons for things or amounts that you do not see anyone else

  61. NoPe I would not pay for exclusive coupons unless it was for a restaurant or local business that never did coupons and if it came in bulk.
    I would be willing to pay under 5 bucks
    As stated earlier for local places

    stormibays (at) hotmail (dot) com

  62. No, I don't think I would pay a fee for exclusive coupons, as we don't have a great variety of stores for good coupon deals, and we live 35 miles away from the nearest metro area. It would be hard to decide what kind of fee I would pay, if I did, as the coupons would really have to be relavent to what I bought. If they were fresh produce, milk or gasoline coupons I would consider it!

    Thanks!

  63. No, I wouldn't pay a fee for coupons, but if I DID pay for them, it would only be for a very minimal fee, and the coupons would have to be very high quality for things I couldn't get coupons for regularly.

    Thanks for the giveaway!
    misterjimmy at sbcglobal dot net

  64. 1-Yes

    2-About 2 dollars a week or the price of a Sunday paper chock full of coupons

    3- I would like coupons for things I actually buy including produce, organic products, and *shudder* some to feed my addiction to Coke!

  65. PS My Name is Koree Fugate ([email protected]

  66. 1. Yes I would pay a fee for exclusive coupons.

    2. Typically it would depend on the coupon. I am not a big fan of a monthly fee for xx ampunt of coupons because I may not use the products included. I would pay on a per coupon basis and do so now through various clipping sites. I typically pay between .04 and .10 per coupon.

    3 I would like coupons for fruit/ veggies, orgainc dairy and meat.

    Saryn P at yahoo dot com

  67. 1-Would you ever pay a fee for exclusive coupons? Yes!

    2-How much of a fee would you be willing to pay? It depends on the value of the coupon. I would say up to 50% of the value.

    3-What type of coupons would you expect for that fee? High value hard to find coupons.

    [email protected]

  68. I definitely would, if the cost were low enough to be recovered and still give me a savings. I use a coupon clipping service now for coupons I can't get in my area.

    The price should be set according to the value of the coupon, maybe by percentage? For example, a $1.00 coupon could be .8-.10 and still give a savings.

    I would expect and pay for coupons that are at least .50 and up, manufacturer's coupons that are not typically found on the internet.

    Amanda
    [email protected]

  69. Fee for coupons: yes
    how much: a set value, no more than 10% of the value of the coupon. I aim to save 75% on a product (usually) when using a coupon.
    types: high value coupons for natural/organic foods as well as coupons for organic produce and coupons that are hard to come by.

  70. 1- I think I would be willing to pay for coupons if they were at a good price. I would want to receive more in coupons that I had to pay. For example $5 for $20 worth of coupons
    2- I would want my coupons to be at least 75% off the price or lots of good b1g1.
    3- the high value items that you don't see in the paper each week. For example, things you would find at trader joes or whole foods. I would love coupons for fresh produce, milk, meat, etc.

  71. 1. I might pay a fee if I could preview the coupons first to see whether or not it would be worth the investment.

    2. I would want them to be lots of B1G1 or increments of 1.50/1 or higher. Less than that you can usually find for free. That being said, I would pay about $5-10 for $30-50 worth of q's

    3.Fresh produce would be great! Earth bound is great for that! Organic products and things that are healthy for you are hard to find and are few and far between in the paper! I would like them to be included if were to pay for it!

  72. 1: I would buy coupons
    2: It depends on the value of the coupons, but since coupons are “free” I wouldn't pay more than a few dollars most likely
    3. High value coupons on organic items that are every day use but hard to find(like organic dairy, produce, meats, etc)
    -Lisa

  73. 1. Maybe for organic products that don't usually have coupons

    2. 50% or less of the coupons value

    3. Organic high value coupons

    jswaks at gmail dot com

  74. 1 – yes, I would be willing to pay for this service
    2 – I'd expect to pay less than $10/month or less than half the value of the coupons given
    3 – I'd expect high quality product coupons (for good products, not junk food) and at high dollar values and/or free products

  75. My name is Lisa N. ([email protected])

    1. Yes, I would do something like a Groupon set-up.

    2. I'd pay half (50%) of the coupon value if it's for a free item. I'd pay one-sixth for a lesser-value coupon. I'd pay a monthly fee for unlimited access to a high-value coupon data base!

    3. I would expect high-value coupons for healthy food (not junk) and coupons for free items.

  76. 1. I get most of my coupons for free, so it would be really hard for me to rationalize paying for a coupon. It would have to be for something I usually buy without coupons.

    2. If it were a coupon I could get nowhere else for an item I already buy near full price, I'd pay a small percent(20-30%) of the value of the coupon.

    3. High value coupons for things I already buy without coupons (because coupons are hard to find)…usually this would be natural/organic stuff.
