The remainder of the program featured a producer who showed her coupon stash and a woman from TLC's "Extreme Couponing" who saves thousands of dollars through clipping coupons. A couple who have a problem in their relationship because the boyfriend has taken bargain hunting to embarrassing extremes was offered advice by Clark Howard. A woman in the audience that talked about how couponing became an addiction mentioned "birthday deals" and there were gifts for those in the audience with birthdays, from an assortment of companies that offer "birthday deals"; and more from Clark Howard who had written a new book on saving money.
The last segment was about "UpCycling" by the author of a book by the same name, Danny Seo. Danny explained that up-cycling is based on re-cycling, but uses items you have around your home and making new objects out of them. Anderson closed the show by thanking his gifts and explaining how viewers could get a $10 coupon from livingsocial.com
