Can anyone suggest a best practice concerning travel coupons, the ones you get in credit card statements, etc. that typically offer a free rental car upgrade and have an expiration date.
I want to be able to find them easily, and not keep them past their expiration dates. So far, I have been tossing them into my Travel folder in my A-Z reference file. But, there is a lot of stuff in that file, and most of the coupons are out of date (will get culled at my annual review) so I have this aversion to picking up the file to search for a possible discount.
I am not convinced that creating a database and logging the coupons would work for me since there would be a lot of data entry.
As I am typing this I thought of the following:
1- Use the month folders from my 1-31 tickler to hold the coupons that expired the month before.
2- If a trip arises, I can look in the monthly folders for coupons.
3- At the start of each month when I normally take the items from the month folder and put them into the 1-31 folders, I can throw away the expired coupons without reading them.
Any comments from the GTD community?
