Interested in saving money with coupons but not sure where to look? There are many sources and when combined, they can save you hundreds of dollars each month. To help you get started, here’s a list of great places to find coupons.
1. Store Circular – The first place to look for coupons is in your store’s circular. Sometimes these weekly publications are mailed to you. Sometimes they can be found in your weekly newspaper. They’re often made available online. And they can always be found in the store. Get in the regular habit of tracking down your store’s weekly publication. There will be a nice list of what’s on sale, as well as a few coupons.
2. Newspaper Supplements and Magazines – Your weekly newspaper generally includes a large supplement on Wednesdays and Sundays. There may be a supplement on Saturdays too, depending on your paper. The supplement is usually packed with coupons from a variety of retailers and manufacturers. It’s a veritable coupon bonanza! Clip away and organize your coupons either by category or expiration date so you never miss a deal.
And don’t forget about magazines. Many family and household magazines have coupons inside. They’re usually part of an advertisement. For example, you may see an ad for air freshener and a coupon for the product in the lower right hand corner. Pay attention the next time you’re flipping through Good Housekeeping – you may be missing valuable coupons.
3. Online – There are actually a number of consistently useful online coupon sources. First, start with your own store’s online coupons. Most of the major retailers have print and online coupons. You can clip them, which involves printing them in your home and then using them at the store. Or you can often load the coupons to your loyalty card. One swipe of your card and all applicable coupons are used. It saves sorting through all that paper.
Take note – When you swipe your loyalty card, that coupon is automatically used. This often negates the printed coupon which may have saved you more money. The print coupons and the loyalty card coupons aren’t always the same.
Many online coupon resources, like Coupon Mom, are membership sites, so you may pay a monthly fee. However, they do aggregate coupons from a number of big chain stores and manufacturers. They can be a valuable and time-saving resource.
4. Finally, don’t forget to look in your mailbox. Every week you probably receive an envelope packed with coupons for local retailers. You may even receive supplements from your neighborhood grocery and big box stores.
When these couponing resources are combined, it’s easy to see why saving hundreds of dollars a month is a realistic possibility.
