Default How Did You Find WUC?

I wasn't sure where to post this, but since many of us have been here for a few years, I decided this would be most appropriate since at this point, we'll be telling a story. How did you find your way to WeUseCoupons? Random Facebook advertising? Google? Referral from a friend?

Whatever your story, we're all glad you found it and joined the WUC family!

My gf who entered my life thru me offering coupons on freecycle.org told me about it. After a few years i decided to try it and have been here since. I love my friends here and some friendships have meant more to me than those friends or family i have right here in flesh.

I found WUC in 2012 through the App Store when I was 8 months pregnant with my 2nd second. He was due in less than a month, we had a 2 year old, and my sister was going to come live with us shortly after my second son was to be born. I knew I had to figure out some way to make our funds stretch. Luckily, my FIL bought us an iPad mini that Christmas as a family gift, so I looked up different coupon apps. I was drawn to WUC because of all the beginner literature here, coupon database, and the matchups showing me exactly what was on sale with coupons. That's a really great help for newbies. Anyway, 5 years later, while the traffic has definitely slowed down a bit, I'm still here. WUC is a great place. I've learned so much here.

WUCkie since May 22, 2011. All of sudden, the supermarkets never had any merchandise that was on sale and had coupons available, started changing their coupon and store policies, started limiting the number of coupons that could be doubled and-or used, manufacturers started playing with their coupon language, and products had their peelies stolen.

I finally asked one of the cashiers at a store what was going on. She told me about that stupid show that shall remain unnamed and about this website.

To this day, I really and truly still detest that show, but like a lot of the people that I met here.

I share your displeasure with that show, Monkeystyle. Did the cashier mean that this site may have led to stricter coupon policies?

I found WUC after watching the infamous TV show. I thought if they can do it, so can I. I researched every avenue I could to figure out how it was done. A notebook held deals, at that time I wrote every step in order not to miss what I needed to do. I even bought some couponing books one of which is from KCL which was really good for beginnings. That book taught me a lot. I followed several sites every week, finally moving up to more advanced ones because frankly some were a little boring to me. I got on one of huge forum sites, but told them to take off the list. I found a link to popular forums and saw WUC, then I watched for several months and marveled how confident people were on WUC and wondered how I could ever do what they did. Finally I took the plunge and joined WUC. I started slowly jumping into the conversations and felt welcome from a variety of members in the group. WUC has always been a very friendly community willing to help each other. Some forum communities are less friendly and not as informative. This is a great place to be and I'm glad I'm a member.

Found after watching Extreme Couponing, too. Felt drawn 2 read up about the different couponers. Nathan stood out becuz he gave back to his church family, & built a structure out of cereal boxes.

I use to frequent a site called " not cold but +++, another word for a piece of paper one uses as money, and the end word of the phrase: we are the +++++.

this site use to talk soooo bad about an "unnamed site" that proclaimed that the "owner got out of debt by selling his stockpile" and other not so nice accusations, and somehow I was able to figure out what site they were talking about(cant remember all the particulars) and here I am.

I quit going to THAT site when I kept reading all the positive actions of the people on this site. There was hardly ANY negativity towards any other groups here! No belittling of others(as a rule) so much positivity etc etc

I never saw the episode with Nathan. I hated that show so much because I thought they should have also focused on what those people did with all the stuff they collected because in some cases, they just had too much stuff for a family or one person to ever be able to use. I constantly wondered, what do they do with all that stuff? Why don't they donate or something? Seeing Nathan might have softened me towards the show a little...just a little. LOL.
