Nashville in Top Six Most Coupon-y Metropolises

Posted By on Wed, Jan 13, 2010 at 7:19 AM

Nashville comes in at sixth and Atlanta in first on the list of the nation's coupon-clippingest U.S. cities, according to site The average user in Atlanta saved around $531 dollars using coupons from the site in 2009. Tampa, Fla., follows Atlanta in the number two position. Charlotte, N.C. is No. 7; Raleigh, N.C., is No. 11; Oklahoma City (if you consider it southern) No. 13; Miami is No. 14; and Dallas is No. 18.

Midwestern cities include three in Ohio -- Cincinnati (No. 3), Cleveland (No. 8) and Columbus (No. 20) -- making it the country's most frugal state. St. Louis (No. 4) and Minneapolis (No. 5), Kansas City (No. 10), Indianapolis (No. 16) and Wichita, Kansas (No. 19), also add to the Midwest contingent.

At position nine, Pittsburgh is the top-ranking of the three Northeast cities in the index. Boston clocked in at No. 12 and Washington, D.C., at 15.

Just one Western city made this year's top 20 list, according to the index: Denver, ranking No. 17.

Couponing as a hobby seems lucrative -- my sister-in-law watched as someone in her grocery line got $200 in groceries for $18. Others find it too much faff, with too much shopping, organization and psychic energy. Still others find the coupons are never for products they want. What's your position?
