The recession has spurred many American shoppers to seek out savings, cut out coupons and compare prices before entering a store with
intent to purchase. Although these savvy shoppers are turning to the internet to share coupons and comparison shop, the majority of Americans surveyed still find newspaper and magazine advertising most helpful when they are seeking out bargains.
