Stock Coupon Photos Are The Best

Thankfully the stock photo world found some new models since I first wrote this in 2012. I'm sure old school Hiffers can remember seeing these images all over the Internet!

If you're a longtime reader of coupon, freebie, or deal blogs then you've seen the image above. You at least recognize the model. Chances are you've seen her more times than you've seen yourself in a mirror.

Long story short I got bored tonight and fell down the istock rabbit hole. If you view any of her photos, you'll see a link titled “Click here to view more images in the series: female40 model.” Thus we can safely conclude her name is female40 model, or F40M to her friends.

F40M is also super proud of accomplishing rudimentary tasks.

Look, I'm paying for my bananas instead of stealing them!

You may have noticed that she's wearing a different shirt in that last photos. That's because she has quite an array of photos spanning all sorts of “activities.”

Look, flowers!!

The checkout guy is now buying flowers with her. And she's wearing the same shirt as when she bought groceries. F40M moves fast.

Of course, she's not the only coupon chick you see around.

Use these coupons or I will cut you.

I'm fairly certain that's not a legit coupon or website.

Speaking of coupon fraud, most of the coupons in the pictures below are the same. I'd totally watch a hybrid of COPS and Extreme Couponing. TLC, call me.

Nope, nothing crazy here...

Ah, it looks like you actually forgot to use those coupons.

Turns out you can buy a baby with coupons.

However none of those are my favorite stock coupon image. The runner up is:

Get a room.

I don't know why that shows up when you search for “coupons” on a stock image site, but just look at her. Who gets that blissful picking breakfast snacks? There is totally another plain of emotions we're not privy to at work here.

But the current reigning champion?

Cleanup in aisle 4.

The actual title of the above image is “FREEDOM!” When will people realize children peeing in the middle of the pasta aisle is no laughing matter?

For the record, this is the kind of stuff I do when bored. πŸ˜€ I love that the only category I can place this in is “HIF Exclusive.”
