Some surprises on the top ten list of Most Frugal Cities

WASHINGTON – The terms “frugal” and “couponing” aren’t usually the first that come to mind when New York City is mentioned – but that could be changing.

New York City made a recent list of the top ten most frugal cities along with some other unexpected names, such as Miami and Las Vegas., a leading mobile couponing website, compiled the list to see which cities had the best couponers, according to a news release.

Houston tops the list, with Chicago, San Antonio and Columbus following.

“Couponing is experiencing a resurgence in popularity, and it’s easier than ever,” says Nissa Rhodes, director of savings at SaveEveryday.

She says part of what is driving the trend is a shift in how coupons are used. Today, shoppers use their smartphones to find nearby deals and folks are reluctant to buy anything full price.

Here’s the full list:

  • Houston
  • Chicago
  • San Antonio
  • Columbus
  • Indianapolis
  • New York
  • Miami
  • Dallas
  • Jacksonville
  • Las Vegas
