(Best Syndication News) - The cost of food at grocery stores are on an upward climb, which may be one reason that more consumers are printing online grocery coupons or clipping them from their local newspapers. There is also a new TV show on TLC called 'Extreme Couponing' that follows super discount couponers on shopping trips showing how they save big money.

According to the Coupons.com, there were over $1.2 billion in savings that they issued for 2010, which was a 41 percent growth from the previous year. Coupons are getting easier to use than the old days of clipping them from the newspaper. While newspaper coupons are still popular, there are ample amounts of grocery coupon websites offering free printable coupons and grocery stores have store loyalty cards that can have pre-loaded coupons on them. This makes it easier for people to find the coupons for the products that they want to buy.

There are even mobile phone apps which provide coupons that can be scanned off of the mobile phone during checkout. Target offers scannable coupons that are sent to participating customers' mobile phones. At checkout, the store cashier scans the barcode on the mobile phone to redeem the coupon.
