Couponing classes offered

Published 12:37 am Sunday, October 30, 2011

Because of its extraordinary popularity throughout the region, BCCC’s Division of Continuing Education will offer two more couponing seminars in November.

The first one will be conducted from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. Nov. 7 at St. John Church of Christ’s Empowerment Center, 2240 St. John Church Road in Beaufort County. The second will meet from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. Nov. 14 in the multi-purpose room of the Hyde County Government Center in Swan Quarter.

These workshops will teach students how to use coupons to dramatically reduce the cost of their groceries. Participants will learn money-saving secrets such as using a drug store customer-rewards program to get health and beauty items free of charge, finding and organizing coupons, using grocery store sales cycles; and getting paid to shop.

The techniques taught in these workshops could potentially cut a grocery bill by 50 percent to 80 percent. The instructor for these seminars is Melody Page, host of “Extreme Ways to Save.” The registration fee is $20.

For more information about these classes, contact Lou Stout at 940-6307. Students may register by calling 940-6375 or in person in room 802 of Building 8 on the BCCC campus. BCCC accepts Visa and MasterCard. Checks payable to Beaufort County Community College may be mailed to the attention of Eva Peartree, P.O. Box 1069, Washington, NC 27889.
