American lifestyle net TLC is building on its savings-focused series Extreme Couponing (pictured) with a seven-part competitive spin-off, in which shoppers will go up against each other in a bid to try and get the biggest savings.

Launching December 27 at 10 p.m. EST, Extreme Couponing All-Stars takes 12 of the original series’ best savers and tasks them with buying US$500 worth of items in 30 minutes, of which nothing can be full price.

Each episode pits two ‘couponers’ against each other, with the person having the highest percentage of savings declared the winner. The series’ one-hour finale will find the three best shoppers battling it out in one store.

The 7 x 30-minutes spin-off is produced by Sharp Entertainment, which also makes the original series.

“Saving money can be like a sport these days – taking careful planning and unwavering commitment,” said TLC general manager Amy Winter. “The cast of Extreme Couponing are very serious about being the best shoppers, and this will be a fun way to see who has what it takes to save the most.”
