I get asked all the time, “Where Do I Get Coupons?” With the increase in internet coupons and printable coupons, the Sunday newspaper is no longer the only place to find coupons. There are a bunch of places to find great coupons so I’ve compiled a list of 2o places to find coupons to help you out.
1) Sunday Coupons – Newspaper Inserts
These come in your major local Sunday newspaper. Generally you can be on the lookout for Smart Source, Red Plum & P&G. Having the local major paper delivered is the easiest way to acquire these coupons or you can purchase one on Sundays. Purchasing extra papers on days when there are good coupons is advised and you can buy extra copies for just $1 at Menards or the Dollar Tree. If you want to know what coupons to expect before you buy check out Sunday Coupon Preview which lists the coupons every week.
2) In-ad Flyers
These are typically stores like Walgreens, CVS, Ace Hardware, Menards, clothing stores, etc. You will recognize these because they generally come on one sheet tucked in your newspaper.
RedPlum coupons come in your Sunday newspaper as newspaper inserts but they also have printable coupons online at RedPlum. They list plenty of coupons monthly that are printable which are generally an extension of what you receive in the paper and a few rare coupons. Checking all the major zip codes available will give you variety with these coupons as regions vary. Also, if you hit your browsers’ back button you can print two copies of these coupons. While most believe they must be printed in color ink all of my local stores accept them printed in black and white.
SmartSource coupons come in your Sunday newspaper as newspaper inserts but they also have printable coupons online throughout the Month at SmartSource. Try to hit your browsers back button you can print two copies of these coupons. While most believe they must be printed in color ink all of my local stores accept them printed in black and white.
When you ask, “Where do I find coupons?” coupons.com is a great answer and they’re probably the most heard-of printable coupons. You will have to install the FREE software that enables the coupons to print with a bar-code. Without a bar-code retailers will not accept these coupons. Checking all the major zip codes available will give you variety with these coupons as regions vary. Generally if you hit your browsers’ back button you can print two copies of these coupons. While most believe they must be printed in color ink all of my local stores accept them printed in black and white.

11) Email The Company
Generally if you e-mail the company letting them know that you like their product they will reciprocate with money saving coupons. I have had luck with lots of companies but two to name are Star Olive Oil (they sent my five $1.00 off coupons) and Sally Hansen (actually sent me two coupons for a free product). The great thing about these coupons is the expiration date is usually longer then normal and the coupon value higher.

Bzz Agent works with companies like Con Agra Foods, Johnson & Johnson, Dunkin Donuts & Disney. They want your thoughts and opinions so they send out samples and coupons in the hope of receiving your feedback.

15) Home Mailers
Sign up to be a part of your favorite stores’ home mailers. I know certain stores send these out once you register for a loyalty card. Usually, the coupons are supposed to be tailored to what you actually buy so everyone’s coupons are different.

17) From The Product Itself
These are coupons that have been attached to the product while on the shelve or are printed onto the packaging. Pillsbury is infamous for this type of coupon on the refrigerated biscuits and rolls.
18) Hang Tags
Hang tags are similar to the above coupons except that they are hung around the neck of a product, oftentimes looking like more product info but make sure to always open any of these you see. You may think they are a recipe upon first glance but I find these coupons can be of pretty high value.
Catalinas are the coupons that are printed from the Catalina machine and handed to you with your receipt. You know the ones you never think twice about and think are just “extra” stuff to deal with as you shove your receipt into your purse? Sometimes when you buy a product (say Pampers) Then a competitor (like Huggies) will give you a catalina coupon hoping they can win you over. Idahoan instant potatoes recently had a coupon out for a free packet of potatoes so it does pay attention to look at these carefully.
Blinkies are the coupons that come from the SmartSource machines you see around the grocery store. My stores have them all over the store. Recently my friend saw a blinkie for Challenge Butter. They blinkie coupon was for $.75 off and the butter was on sale for $1.00. The store doubled this coupon up to a dollar so free butter! Most will not double but sometimes you get lucky.
So how about you: Where Do You Find Coupons?
