My favorite store doesn't accept coupons, but their prices are really low anyway. I do use coupons, but they're the $5 off $25 purchase ones that Dollar General issues almost every week.
Learning to coupon wouldn't pay off here. I stick to buying whole foods or foods in bulk, and the stores in the area don't double or triple the value so store brand is still cheaper on non-food items.
I don't use them often because most of the food I buy don't have coupons. Occasionally I use them. My grocery will accept two coupons on buy one get one deals, so that's a big savings. They will also accept coupons for other stores.
Not as much as I'd like but I don't really buy a lot of the stuff that they give coupons on.
I don't find it to be lucrative for me. On non-food items it might pay off occasionally, but since I don't buy very much in the way of processed, boxed, etc food, there aren't many coupons I could even use for food.
Now, if they started regularly including coupons for meat, vegetables, fruits and so on, heck yes I would!
The bulk of our purchases are at a bump and dent (salvage) store. They don't take coupons. The other things we purchase (like bulk meats at a family owned grocer) don't have coupons but do go on special in rotation, so we buy when they are cheaper and freeze in meal sized portions. I do use coupons for occasional non food items combining them with specials and special offers (like at CVS and Rite Aid), checking to see if they really are better deals over other places. Then there's the dollar stores which now accept coupons.
