Hi, I'm MrsSmith.

I started Extreme Shopping in August 2009 and by November 2009 I was saving an average of $400+ a month. I could not keep the secrets of such savings to myself and started telling people what I was doing. My genius and darling husband suggested I teach classes on this method, at which I scoffed,"who would attend coupon classes?" Well, it seems that a lot of people do. I love you all for that.

Please read the FAQs below for frequently asked questions.

Secondly, you will receive exclusive access to the Class Blog where MrsSmith will provide a selection of deals for the week (currently in the West only). You can follow this guide to start your shopping list every week. The Class Blog will also include exclusive information such as policy updates and links to other resources that are not available on the regular blog.

Q: I am interested in hosting a live class, where can I find more information for hostesses?
A:
Thank you for your interest in hostessing a class! I could not do this without you. Please email MrsSmith at kmemeric@hotmail.com for more information.

Q: What is the difference, if any, between the a live class, a Skype class and an online class?
A:
In the live class, MrsSmith attends each class and interacts with students and provides immediate responses to questions and discussions. Students will receive a printed handout, a pack of coupons, a chance to win door prizes, and samples and coupons from manufacturers and advertisers. In a Skype class, MrsSmith will "attend" the class via Skype, and will teach the class live, in real-time and can interact with students via the computer. You will receive a printed class handout and coupon pack. For the online classes, the information is provided via a online course, and you will not be able to interact with MrsSmith or other students simultaneously. You will download a PDF class handout and the class video/audio segments, and will not receive any coupons or samples. Regardless of which class you take, you will receive access to the class blog and specific areas of the site that are exclusive to class students. You will also be able to receive email support from MrsSmith.

Q: Can I film a live or Skype class, or download and store an online class for later review?
A:
No. You can review your downloaded online class for 3 days only at which time the link will expire.

Q: What is the return policy on the classes?
A:
Once purchased, there is no returns allowed on any class. MrsSmith guarantees a comprehensive and information loaded class and once you have taken the class, you will be able to save money almost immediately. If you are not satisfied with the class, please contact MrsSmith at kmemeric@hotmail.com to discuss and be prepared to fully outline the reasons for your dissatisfaction.

Q: My online class access has expired. Can I get an extension?
A:
Once the class access has expired, there is no extension available, however you may purchase the class again and receive full access to the course.

Q: My child is 15 and would like to attend the class, do I have to pay for my child to attend a live class or to take an online class?
A:
The fee is $25 per person for the Canadian ExtremeShopping class and online course, so yes, your child would have to pay the fee.

GENERAL FAQs
Q: Why don't I see certain coupon webpages listed on this site?
A:
There are many coupon websites that are provided in the classes (both live and online) and are considered class material, which is why if you are visiting the site and have not taken the class, you will not see links to those webpages.

Q: Will the Canadian ExtremeShopping method work in my remote area?
A:
Yes and no. The Canadian ExtremeShopping method is best maximized in certain metropolitan areas with more choices of stores and the targeted areas are Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Alberta and British Columbia. Please note that the ExtremeShopping method currently will not work in other provinces. However, there are resources provided that can be used to help save you money no matter where you are in Canada and US (dependent on the class taken). If you are not from MB, SK, AB or BC, you may purchase the online class to access the resources provided, as long as you are aware the method will not work in your area.

Q: I am so excited about the information I learned, can I tell my friends about the class?
A:
You may tell your friends about the MrsSmith website and classes, but you may not share the information you received from the class with others that have not taken the class. It is important to the integrity of the class and also for the class reputation that you do not share this information. You are not authorized to copy, distribute, share, charge for, or in any way, disseminate any information, written, spoken or otherwise taken from this site.
Thank you!
