The holidays are approaching, which means one unfortunate side effect: lots of expenses.

I don’t know what happens with your family this time of year, but in mine, it’s all about the food. When it’s your turn to host a meal for a dozen or more people, those food costs add up.

If you’ve been ignoring your budget all year, this might be the time you start to pay attention. Suddenly, frugality looks attractive, and extreme couponing doesn’t seem so crazy.

Until you give it a try and come up for air after six hours, covered in paper cuts and newspaper ink.

Let’s reign in your ambition for a sec. Collecting weekly ads and clipping grocery coupons at the kitchen table every Sunday night aren’t the only ways to cut expenses.

It’s 2017. You can do that on the internet.

We’ve told you about MyPoints before. It’s a shopping portal that lets you earn rewards points for shopping through its site — but we found a new way to use it.

MyPoints also curates tons of grocery coupons for food, health and beauty supplies, pet supplies, household necessities and more. And it’ll pay you just for “clipping” them from its website… which is way easier than the old way.

How to Get Paid to Clip MyPoints Coupons

MyPoints gives you rewards points for printing and using grocery coupons from its site. And it’ll give you a $5 bonus to get started.

So… you get paid to save money on your groceries. That’s a real thing.

To start saving and claim your $5 gift card:

  1. Sign up for MyPoints here.
  2. Print coupons anytime (max 500 a month). Earn one point per coupon you print. Plus, after you print your first 50 coupons, you’ll earn 790 bonus points, equal to $5 in gift-card value.
  3. You’ll also earn 10 points every time you use a coupon.
  4. Cash in your points for gift cards to places including Walmart, Amazon and Starbucks, or money via PayPal.

On top of the points, don’t forget the money you’ll save using the coupons. When I checked the site, it had $510.25 in savings available in printable coupons.

That might even be enough relief to keep you from resenting your visiting relatives this holiday season.

(Too ambitious? Meh, worth a shot.)
