I came across this BOGO coupon for Bob Evan's. I thought about posting it on my blog, but decided against it. Sure, some of my readers might be interested in this kind of "deal", but as a blogger I have to ask myself..."Is this really a deal?" Some of you may think so, and that's fine, but I personally don't view this as a deal.
When I first started couponing I quickly got caught up in printing ALL the coupons (well..most of them) and signing up for all the deals. I learned very quickly (and yes, you could verify this with my husband), that I was actually spending MORE money than I was SAVING.
Now, IF I were already planning on going to Bob Evan's for breakfast this would be a deal and would save me money...BUT, since I'm not planning on going there for breakfast it's not saving me money. I would actually be spending MORE money by falling for this "deal" because I would be buying at least one breakfast, not to mention spending gas money to drive there!
Okay, so my goal isn't to be a "bummer" for you, but to encourage you to spend wisely. I hope this has given you something to think about the next time you encounter a great "deal."
PS. Oh, and just incase you were planning on going out for breakfast at Bob Evan's click here to print your coupon! :)
