Just how much do we love coupons? Well in 2009 there were 367 billion printable coupons distributed with an average value of $1.44. At an industry recommended six inch length, laying all of these coupons end to end the line would stretch to the moon and back 72 times! Even with the smallest length of 3 inches the line would stretch back and forth 36 times with coupons to spare. That doesn't even cover Internet coupon codes which rose 263% in 2009 according to the coupon statistics on I Love Coupon Month.
