"Extreme Couponing" (TLC TV show) introduces viewers to America's most extreme "super couponers," sharing why they are so driven by the deals and witnessing their amazing couponing ways firsthand. From seeing their shocking stockpiles of merchandise they rack up to demonstrating their dramatic shopping skills, the series shares the world of everyday people in pursuit of extraordinary deals.

It's been reported that shoppers saved $4.6 billion with coupons in 2011, $500 million more than the previous year. This increase is evidence that using coupons to save money is a habit that's being embraced by Americans.

Season 3 follows some new couponers who have unique motives as to why they love to clip n' snip. In the premiere episode, viewers will meet University of Louisville student Dominique, who teams up with his fraternity brothers to throw the biggest toga party the university has ever seen. The only way they can afford to do it is if Dominique pulls off the most extreme coupon shopping trip he's ever attempted. He pushes his frat brothers to any lengths to get the coupons he needs, including going door to door in togas asking for coupons and singing for coupons in the quad

We also meet Jeff, who comes from a dynasty of male couponers. Jeff and his brother Dan learned from father Dave, and now Jeff is teaching his son Sam how to coupon. At 8 years old, Sam is finally old enough to accept the family's heirloom coupon box and its valuable stash of no-expiration coupons. But to fully join his family's ranks as a fully-fledged couponer, Sam must first save at least 75% on his very first solo extreme couponing shopping trip.

Throughout the season, viewers will also get to know barter extraordinaire Aprille, who coupons for snacks that she trades for favors and car repairs at the car dealership she works at in Michigan. In Alabama, Minister Adrienne believes that paying full price is an abomination and spreads the coupon gospel to her congregation through her sermons. Amen to savings!

Season 4

The fourth season returns with all new shoppers, stockpiles and strategies. Saving money is a lifestyle and has become the chic thing to do. Those 'in the know' don't ever dare pay full price. Meet a few standout savers:

• Julie is a Colorado couponer whose dream job is to be paid to coupon. It looks like she'll finally have her chance when she answers an "extreme couponer wanted" ad for a Sober Home for teenage boys. To land her dream job, Julie must prove to Aaron, the home's founder, that she can score 2 weeks' worth of organic products for just $150, a difficult task that is made even harder by the boys' antics.

• In Georgia, couponing duo April and Chasity have outgrown their large stockpile rooms, and the only solution is to go even bigger. April convinces Chasity to join "the building club," and the two of them go shopping for backyard storage sheds to house their stockpiles. When April's husband Clint says he could coupon faster than April and Chasity, the battle lines are drawn, and the ladies put their husbands to the test by putting their coupon binders in the men's hands and sending them to the store.

• Most people have albums of baby photos and family vacations, but Georgia couponer Rudy collects photos of her grocery hauls. After every shopping trip, Rudy spends hours meticulously setting up her hauls so she can take a picture of them and hang on to the memories of her supermarket successes.

• New York couponer Susan is the original coupon queen. She has been couponing for over 40 years and saved hundreds of thousands of dollars in the process, paving the way for younger extreme couponers. She even has a coupon robot that mechanically sorts her thousands of coupons for her for each shopping trip. To commemorate her 40th anniversary of couponing, Susan will attempt to break her personal couponing record — $519 for $20 — and prove that even after 40 years, she's still got it.

"Extreme Couponing" Season 4 is produced for TLC by Sharp Entertainment. The executive producer is Matt Sharp, and the co-executive producer is Rebecca Bruno.
