It's a good habit to always delete the 'scriptCache.package' file when you install or replace a scripted mod.

Game Version : 1.63 - 1.67

It may work on previous Patch Levels too, but it's only been tested and proved working on 1.63 up to 1.67, so use it at your own risk.


This mod replaces the "ClipCoupon" interaction with a script, and also changes the "FindCoupons" interactions with two ITUN, specifically : FindCoupons_Computer and FindCoupons_HoloComputer.
This means that any mod that replaces any of those interactions, won't work with this one.


This mod was requested by anak_ponti, at least the "ClipCoupon" part, while "FindCoupons" was added by me for completion.

As simple as it sounds, this mod makes both interactions available for all sims and not just the ones with the Frugal trait.
If you didn't know, "FindCoupons" is always available on computers, while "ClipCoupon" is available on newspapers (It can only be used once, by EA standards, of course once you clip a coupon from a newspaper, it hardly grows back....)


  • JunJayMdM.EveryoneClipCoupons : download this version if you want the autonomy for everyone
  • JunJayMdM.EveryoneClipCoupons.NoAutonomous : download this version if you want autonomy disabled for everyone.
  • JunJayMdM.EveryoneClipCoupons.FrugalOnlyAutonomous : download this version if you want the autonomy for Frugal sims only.
  • JunJayMdM.EveryoneClipCoupons_1.33-1.57 : download this version if your game has a patch level from 1.33 up to 1.57 (it includes all flavors)


  • The newspaper interaction (ClipCoupon) has the autonomy disabled in all versions, as it was by EA default. I did some tests enabling it but it wasn't working. It can be used only once per newspaper, so it's not a big deal anyway.
  • You don't need to have EPs installed, it will work fine with the Base Game only, as long as your game is patched up to date.
  • Do not teach it to talk or it will start cursing and humiliating you, especially if you have a below average pc!
  • If you find bugs in this mod, call the exterminator or simply report them to me
