A coupon processing company says usage peaked in 1992 but fell steadily every year until last year. The recession has more people using coupons. Two point six billion online and print coupons were redeemed in 2008. That increased 27 percent in 2009. And even though online coupon use is on the rise, 89 percent of all coupons distributed are in print.
