THEY'RE RUNNING WITH SCISSORS!
It's a savings throwdown in the new TLC series EXTREME COUPONING ALL-STARS
Couponing just got competitive. We've seen their stockpiles and heard their stories, but you've never seen extreme couponers like this. 12 of the series' best savers go head-to-head in a shopping challenge to see who can save more in the new series EXTREME COUPONING ALL-STARS. The 7-part series will air Tuesdays at 10p ET/PT, premiering on December 27.
Having proven themselves as strategic savers, ALL-STARS puts these devoted couponers to the ultimate test: buy $500 worth of items in 30 minutes and nothing can be full price - their entire haul must then be donated. Each half-hour episode pits two couponers against each other, with the person having the highest percentage of savings named the winner. The series' one-hour finale will find the three best shoppers battling it out in one store, all hoping to ring up their victory.
"Saving money can be like a sport these days - taking careful planning and unwavering commitment. The cast of Extreme Couponing are very serious about being the best shoppers, and this will be a fun way to see who has what it takes to save the most," said Amy Winter, GM, TLC.
The current season of EXTREME COUPONING airs Wednesdays at 10/9c, and concludes next week, November 23, with both couponers shopping for and donating their purchases to Feeding America.
Sharp Entertainment produces EXTREME COUPONING and EXTREME COUPONING ALL-STARS for TLC.
