Whenever our hometown paper would print a coupon for a reduced price on a video rental, I would immediately cut it out and then I would go to all of my older neighbors, who I knew did not have a VCR, and ask them if they wouldn’t mind cutting them out and holding on to them for me. Eventually they just started doing it because they were nice and when a coupon was printed I could count on five or six of them. This usually made for a very exciting month of rentals for me or a windfall if my sisters wanted to negotiate for one of them to save money on a rental. At 50 cents a coupon, I could really clean up.
