Thrifty Thursday this week focuses on utilizing those coupons and rewards benefits on your credit cards!
I know some of you out there are expert coupon fanatics. Those kind of deals one cannot simply pass up! However, others just don't have the time or resources to sit down and clip coupons all day. Thus, they resort to online apps and rewards cards to help save a buck or two.
Couponing Apps - are they really worth the hassle?
While some people are willing to spend several hours a week on clipping coupons, hoping to get their money back, others are just shopping for discounts when they’re ready to make a purchase. For some people, couponing is a way of life. It’s a simple and easy way to save money on the grocery bill. And for others, it’s a great way to save a buck or two on something they were already shopping for.

Coupons are a great way to save money on things you were already going to purchase in the first place. This article from Ramsey Solutions offers a more in depth insight on couponing.
Couponing isn't for me. How do credit card rewards work?
With traditional cash rewards, the rewards can be redeemed in the form of a statement credit or as cash deposited directly into the cardholder’s bank account. With other rewards such as travel or hotel rooms, rewards points can typically be redeemed for airline miles or hotel vouchers that can be used at certain locations. Some credit card companies also offer online shops where cardholders can choose to spend their rewards points directly on items such as gift cards or even electronics.
You can choose to save your rewards points or to spend them right away. If you let your rewards points build up for a while without spending them, you may be able to save up for excellent rewards such as enough airline miles to fly around the world, or enough rewards points to buy a gift card that will cover your groceries for several months.
