I had found a catalina for FREE Coffeemate, up to 3.99. I don't use that sort of thing really, but I thought, what the heck. So, I was milling around by the coffee mate, and I saw this older/middle aged woman kind of looking that the coffee mate with DESIRE. She looked for a while, and regretfully put one in her cart. There were also a few cans of soup in her cart, and that was it. Well, she looked like she could REALLY use a coupon, so I gave it to her. She looked like she had never seen a coupon in her life. She read it VERY carefully, and compared and did any number of things with the coupon and with her comparisions. Then when she was sure that the coupon would work for her product(many assurances from me) she was thankful. She went to get another coffeemate and I told her that she didn't have to, it wasn't a BYGO coupon, the coffee mate was absolutely free. She was thrilled, almost to tears. She said she is on a very strict budget and living with her daugther, who is a single Mom, to try to help her out. So, we got to talking, and I told her about a coupon website, rebates, and about printables and about my savings, and she seemed thrilled. So, I think, I hope, I converted her to coupons. I hope her, and her daughter can save some money.

Yay! Good for you.

I gave a 3.00 coupon and a free kandoo coupon with the purchase to a grandma once. She was really elated too. I don't give coupons away very often, but when I do, I look for someone who looks like they really "need" it.

I had one sent to me for signing up on their site a while back... maybe start there. I don't know if they're still doing that or not. But it's worth a shot!

My best friend sent me an email to get a coupon for a free one. It's been awhile now; I hope it shows up soon. I don't drink coffee but she loves the stuff.

Awww!! What a sweet thing to do! I love hearing stories like this, because I really do believe a good act is passed on. The person remembers what someone did for them and tries to pass it on
