  • 6% are clipping coupons, which they never did before – 58% expect to continue clipping coupons in the future; and
  • 3% have joined coupon clubs or attended meetings about coupons – 50% expect to be involved in such activities in the future.
  • Overall, coupon redemption increased 23% in 2009 – the second highest year-over-year growth rate ever recorded. Redemptions continued to grow each quarter in 2009.
  • Redemption for grocery products increased by 25%, representing 2 billion coupons; and
