September is National Coupon Month! Coupon expert Candice Cerro from joined Good Day Chicago on Thursday to share the do's and don'ts!

What you SHOULD do:

  • Do find a promotional code or coupon prior to checking out online from sites like and
  • Do make sure to take advantage of the "promotional code" box at checkout.
  • Do share your coupons with your friends as everyone loves a good deal.
  • Do stack coupons as some retailers allow you to use more than one coupon or code in the same offer, especially with free shipping coupons.
  • Do follow your favorite brands on social media sites as they often will provide special offers for their followers.

What you SHOULD NOT do:

  • Don't purchase anything online without a promotional code. If there is a box for a code, you will most likely be able to find some discount on the web.
  • Don't make an in-store purchase without comparing prices online. You can often find the item cheaper online PLUS most retailers offer free shipping.
  • Don't pay for coupons as an upfront fee for access to discount coupons is often a sign they are fraudulent.
  • Don't give out personal information for coupons or promotional codes. Legitimate sites will never ask for this kind of information.
  • Don't be committed to one brand or store only. Comparison shop online to find the best deal for the product you're looking for.
