'Extreme Couponing All-Stars' Sneak Preview (VIDEO)
Some of TLC's most ferocious savers from "Extreme Couponing" will be put to the test in "Extreme Couponing All-Stars," a new reality competition series debuting Tues., Dec. 27 at 10 p.m. EST.
In the new seven-part series, 12 "Extreme Couponing" veterans go head-to-head. Each episode will feature two couponers as they race around a store trying to get $500 worth of items in 30 minutes. The catch? Nothing can be full price. The couponers will donate their entire haul to a local food bank and the winner will be determined by whoever has the highest percentage of savings.
"Saving money can be like a sport these days -- taking careful planning and unwavering commitment. The cast of 'Extreme Couponing' are very serious about being the best shoppers, and this will be a fun way to see who has what it takes to save the most," Amy Winter, GM of TLC, said in a statement.
In this exclusive sneak peek, Michelle, described as a "buck-hunting super-saver," takes on Chris. The two have very different shopping methods: Michelle plays quick and dirty and Chris plans meticulously. It's sort of like "Super Market Sweep" on crack.
