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 using a coupon!

Look, I found some juice!

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.”

She helps kids build gingerbread houses.

She creeps on people with a hairdryer.

She stuns her vet by feeding the dog unopened food.

She's caught reselling her supermarket purchases at a farmer's market?

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.

Is she shopping at King’s Cross station

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.”

  3. Ha ha, that’s funny. Great job. You should definitely consider the suggestions about doing your own comedy show or skit of some kind. Maybe a blog or something, that would be great. You would definitely have plenty of followers, just as you do on HIF. I, among many others, think you are absolutely hilarious, and love all of your comments as much as the wonderful freebies you post. Thanks so much for keeping this site going even through your health struggle. You are a true inspiration to many. God bless you for being a light that not only brightens people’s days, but entire lives as well. It’s people like you that make this world a better place. Shine on!

  4. I was sad b/c all the freebies are dead already… then I come across this and remember why I still come here as often as possible! (Usually everyday..)

    You are hilarious , BUT like #29 Brandi said… we look insane trying to explain what’s so funny, so would you please consider the book idea someone mentioned awhile back. You already have sales among your Hiffers!!

  5. I get a lot of my coupons from little booklets that I pick up around town, and I’ve noticed the same stock photo of a tanned woman with platinum hair and tons of eyeliner holding a seashell, used for various beauty salons and spas. I’ve to refer to her a ‘eyeliner chick’. πŸ˜€ I didn’t know anybody else noticed things like that. Thanks for the laugh πŸ˜›

  7. How did I get here? I mean, under the Coffee freebie. I wanted to thank you (Goob???) for the funny edition of the coupon lady pictures and your comments. The little girl peeing was a riot LOL!

    I’m patiently waiting for our first blizzard with forcasts of anywhere from 8 to 12 inches of snow, which really has me bummed out, as all we’ve seen this winter is brown grass… and I’ll take brown grass over white snowy grass any day! (normally by now we have 3 1/2 feet of snow on the ground, and we have none… yet)

    So thank you again for making me laugh, while I wait for the blizzard. Oh how I wish it was a Dairy Queen blizzard I was waiting for!

  9. Goob, kudos to you for all you do…laughter is definitely the best medicine. Keep up the GREAT work and don’t forget to remember to take care of YOU! ~~mwah~~
    Jan #25…I had to go back over all of them and laff some more, thanks for pointing that out.

  10. A problem with being humorous is that it often causes people to read your posting more carefully, to ensure not a hilarity is missed, but also leads to scrutiny with Kenobe grammar nerds saying: That was not the “plain” you were looking for.

  11. OMG, sooo funny!!! I noticed that cute lady is always showing up on the coupon image on many sites, but didn’t pay much attentions. Thanks for the laugh! πŸ™‚

  12. p.s. thank you Jan #25, I hadn’t noticed the captions when you hover over the pic; so much better. And Goob, if you come to Tempe to perform, I will be in the audience as well.

  13. I just want to say I love you. I think your humor is hilarious; though often times I get scared looks when I try to explain what is so funny. I still laugh about your yurt joke. Anyhow, thanks for doubling your freebie website as a humor column.

  14. “She stuns her vet by feeding the dog unopened food.” The dog looks even more perplexed because BPA-lined pseudo-metal is just not his thing!

  15. Maybe the cashier is her husband,(see wedding ring) and they are smiling because she is getting the family discount at the grocery store. They saved enough money to stope and buy flowers.

  16. thanks for the laughs. You are so so funny. Come to AZ and do some stand up comedy at the club in Tempe AZ. How do you think up these things to do?

    Reply
  17. Definitely thought this was some type of weird, demented freebie. Nope, turns out you made my crappy day loads better. My crazy boss was yelling at a fellow co-worker, & I had to stand up for her. Ended up crying in the corner. I feel like I’m in high school again D:

  18. Now that you mention it. I think that cashier might not be a cashier at all! He’s clearly wearing a bright blue shirt and stalking her in that first photo. He just looked the other way when he noticed someone taking her picture.

    Do you think he killed the real cashier or just stole a uniform?

    Reply
  19. Tim, look at her “portfolio!” The cashier shows up in other, more intimate, photos and yet some other dude does as well. Plus the captions say those kids are hers. I almost made up an entire crazy existence based just on her stock photos.

  20. The cashier is stalking the coupon lady. He is pretending to look at flowers, but all evidence shows he was the cashier at the grocery store. Someone call the authorities, her life may be in danger.
