About SaveaLoonie.com

Hi there and Welcome to SaveaLoonie.com! Our names are Ryan and Terra and we run SaveaLoonie. We are a couple living in Ontario, Canada with our dogs, Jack and Ella. We just want to tell you a little about ourselves and our website.

SaveaLoonie.com was launched on May 18, 2011. We created this site to help our friends, family and fellow Canadians to learn to coupon and reduce your monthly expenses. We started couponing out of necessity. With Terra being a full time student and Ryan working with a variable income, we found our finances quickly became too much to handle. We had seen TLC’s Extreme Couponing and decided that couponing was worth a shot to try and reduce some of our expenses. We quickly found that with some time and dedication grocery bills were dropping by 50% or more! Others started to notice the success we were having with coupons and were constantly asking where we get our coupons and how to use them. After trying to explain to a handful of them all the different resources we use to collect coupons, we came up with the idea of creating a website where we could put them all together. That’s how SaveaLoonie.com was born.

Now a little about us!

Terra
I am a Sir Sanford Fleming Alumni and a graduate of the Advanced Registered Massage Therapy program. I am a Registered Massage Therapist with the College of Massage Therapists of Ontario. As well as being being one of the 2 writers at SaveaLoonie, I also run a small Massage Therapy practice out of our home. You can find me on Facebook here: https://www.facebook.com/TerraKaufmanRMT. I have been couponing since late 2010 and I love every minute of it. I’m not just a couponer, but embrace every aspect of the frugal lifestyle. I do most of the content writing and updating here on SaveaLoonie.com. When I’m not working, I enjoy spending time with Ryan and our dogs walking, fishing, visiting family, gardening, DIY-ing, cooking or baking.

Ryan
I am a self employed web designer and have been working on the internet for over 10 years. I have created and maintain several websites on a daily basis as well as SaveaLoonie.com. Every site I have run is all “Freemium” content meaning I have never charged for any service I provide online. I wasn’t sure about this couponing thing at first but quickly realized how much money could really be saved. I have never actually used a coupon by myself but am with Terra on almost every shopping trip. I am responsible for all of the back end coding and design work done on SaveaLoonie. As well as working on the web, I have a side hobby of caring for and breeding lizards, more specifically Bearded Dragons. I also enjoy horsing around with our dogs, playing video games and watching the Toronto Maple Leafs play hockey.

Jack


Jack is our oldest fur-baby. He is a Jack Russell Terrier. He is always excited to see what new goodies (especially dog treats!) that we bring home when we shop. He has got his head in every bag before they are even through the door! Jack is super energetic and loves playing ball, barking at squirrels and posing for pictures. If we are in the office working, you can bet Jack isn’t far behind! He gets just as excited as we do when a new coupon or freebie offer goes live.

Ella

Ella is an energetic Pug puppy. She is new to the couponing world but is catching on fast! Ella joined our family in March of 2012 and has made us smile everyday since then. She loves helping to sort coupons – even if they do sometime get a little soggy. Ella loves getting dressed up, playing ball and chasing Jack’s tail. During the day, you can usually find Ella asleep on the couch or laying in the sunshine some where.

What makes SaveaLoonie.com unique from other Canadian Couponing websites is our family dynamic. It is just us working here, searching Facebook, emails and the internet looking for coupons and freebies for you. All day, every day. Both of our jobs are done from home, so we are rarely far from the computer. What this means for you is that we are often FIRST to bring you time sensitive and limited time only coupon and freebie offers. We pride ourselves on bringing unique content to you first. You can be assured that being a part of the SaveaLoonie Community means you won’t miss an offer!

We also offer our community members a fun, encouraging and interactive place to find and learn about coupons. Every post, comment, Facebook message, email and promotion are all 100% done by us. We offer all of our Community Members access to our extensive and FREE How to Coupon Guide so you can learn to coupon at your own pace. We firmly believe that no one should pay to learn how to coupon which is why we offer our resource to you for nothing.

If this is your first visit, please let us Welcome you to the SaveaLoonie Community and we hope to see you around a lot. If you’ve been a SaveaLoonian for some time, thank you for stopping by to learn a bit about us. We love having you here!

  4. you guys rock…………bless u. u are doing great job. i have saved so much money through ur websites…..keep it up………thanks guys

  5. Just a note, your site can’t be updated daily, you should remove or note when freebies are expired. You have so many expired freebies, it is not worth even visiting them.

  6. hi guys,very nice website im on it almost everyday its addictive lol.i seen that ive won last month savealoonie coupon binder and was told i would get an email to how i would receive it. but i havent got any word.

    1. Hi Monique. We are so glad to hear you love the website. Your winning email was sent October 1st. It is unfortunately now passed the deadline for claiming your prize. Please feel free to enter again! You never know!

  7. My e-mail address has changed and now I can’t get it changed so that I can get stuff (Dove Free product) via Facebook. It says I can only have one per household, but won’t allow me to change my e-mail address.. HELP

  8. love your site and your dedication.You two are great!
    Wishing you both a very Merry Christmas and a Happy and Successful New Year.
    To you also Jack and Ella…woof woof!!

  9. Thank you soo much for this website!
    Its absoloutely amazing!
    I just stumbled upon this and I have been going a bit nuts.
    Im very thankful for your website and will start using it regularly.
    Cheers!!

  10. I would like to start off saying… THANK YOU for the time and effort in helping Canadians with their search to save money. I just started a few months ago when I came across your site by accident. To date I now have over 300 active coupons in my binder and have been saving my family $300 – $450 a month. I have been purchasing items only in which I need or have used in the past – some in amounts that can be somewhat extreme. I am not what you call a “Shelf Clearer” or am greedy with my coupons. I give to those who really need them such as school, daycare, cadets etc. My biggest rant is that the province/City (Manitoba, Winnipeg) I live in is pretty much extinct for tear pad coupons (lucky to see 2-3 tear pads a month between 5 stores I shop at). So I depend on printable, mail, weclip.ca and on product coupons. I have tried trades online a couple times but got ripped off – I sent mine but never received the trade.

    What I am hoping for is that one day you add more to your site such as a place where people in each province can turn to and find weekly meeting sites for face to face type trades.

    Once again I thank you for all that you have done!

    Sincerely… Single low income mom of 2 disabled children

  11. Loved reading your page ..beautiful couple cute Dogs..thank you for all your help and saving is my middle name . always love some coupons and savings …

    God Bless you

  12. Hi, Love the website excellent job!!! Lol @ Jack sitting at the computer….Too funny and Ella waiting to go on next…ha ha ha. Thanks again.

  13. Just want you to both know how much i appreciate your website! I enjoyed reading the personal information on you and your fur babies and how your site came to be. I am very impressed with how you are always the first to post new offers and you also take the extra time to keep us all up to date on everything (freebie times, contests, coming soon items and so much more) Please keep helping us as I would be lost without your guidance and have lots less money too 🙂 Thanks

  14. I’m looking forward to try and reduce our food bill. With the increase in our food bill everything will help. Thanks Ralph Francis.

  15. I just found your site via an internet search and it looks great; signed up for your newsletter. Love your fur-babies. Has Jack found any good treats lately? 🙂

  16. Thank You so much. You do a wonderful job keeping up with all of this. I have a problem and I might have done something but I can’t enter the contests any more I only have the comment to click on there is no go. Could you please help. I know nothing about computers NO REALLY NOTHING. Thank You.

  17. I am so glad I found this site. I’ve always wanted to learn how to coupon and I’ve been so envious of people in the states that are able to do it. I didn’t think it was possible to save so much money in canada, but then I saw some of the grocery trips on here and I was amazed and so happy! Thank you so much for providing the information on how to coupon for free. There is nothing more discouraging when you try to find out more information on somebody’s website and they want to charge you for all the important information on how to achieve what they already know how to do. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!

  18. Hi Ryan & Terra,

    Just letting you know there is a new contest with Burnbrae Farms “Get back on track” to healthy eating this January! Create and capture your inspired healthy #eggcellentreceipes for a chance to win a personal mini tablet with wifi, hand blender or Burnbrae Farms & Naturegg coupons and merchandise. This is on their Facebook page. Good luck!

    Thanks,
    Corry
