Where Do I Find Coupons?

>> Thursday, February 18, 2010

Insert Coupons
These are the coupons found inside the Sunday edition of large newspapers. They are published by SmartSource, Vlassis (Redplum) and Proctor & Gamble. There is usually at least one SmartSource and one Redplum insert each Sunday excluding major holiday weekends. P&G Savers are usually published once per month.

Printable Internet Coupon Sites
Coupons that you can print online are all the rage. Coupons.com, SmartSource.com and Redplum.com are the most popular sources to find these coupon. These sites offer coupons for a variety of products from various manufacturers on a monthly basis. Coupons are updated and/or added at the first of the month. Sometimes new coupons will be added throughout the month. Most coupons stay up all month or according to the specific manufacturers print limits. Two of each coupon can be printed per computer.

Manufacturer Websites
Many manufacturers offer coupons through their websites as a regular feature or during special promotions. Some also make monthly emailed newsletters available which may feature one or more printable coupons. Basic personal information is required for registration. You will want to set up a separate email for couponing so that your regular inbox does not become overloaded. These coupons usually carry a print limit of two per computer.

Retail Websites
Many retailers, like CVS, Walgreens, Target and Homeland to name a few, offer printable coupons on their website. These coupons are a mix of store specific coupons and manufacturer coupons. The print limit is usually two per computer.

All You Magazine
This magazine is available only at Walmart ($2.49) or by subscription (as low as $1.00). It is full of valuable coupons. Sometimes the newstand issue contains coupons not found in subscription copies. Allyou.com also features exclusive coupons.com printable coupons.

Peelies
These are coupons found attached to a product in the store and usually read "save now". Sometimes it may involve buying another product as well to receive the savings. It is not ethical to take the peelie coupons off products you do not intend to buy.

Catalinas
These are coupons that print from the small printers located by the register at stores like Homeland and Walgreens. Sometimes they are coupons for specific products and sometimes they are for $x off your next order. They also carry advertisements for future “catalina” deals which feature $ off your next order when you buy certain products. These coupons are manufacturer coupons but are only valid at the store where they printed. You may not stack these coupons with other manufacturer coupons.

Tear Pads
These are booklets of coupons attached to special store displays. Unlike the peelies, it is acceptable to take a few tearpad coupons for use on another sale at a different store.

Product Packaging
Occasionally manufacturers offer coupons as part of their product packaging. These coupons can many times be found on the back of the box/carton or on the inside. Always check before throwing out an empty box.

Mail Offers
Sometimes manufacturers make coupons available by mail through Internet offers. Proctor & Gamble does this through their monthly “Home Made Simple” coupon booklet as well as on their site, P&G Everyday Solutions. Also, some stores (i.e. CVS, Homeland and Target) will occasionally send store specific coupons for various products through the mail if you are on their mailing list.

Free Samples
Many manufacturers offer free samples through on-line promotions. These samples arrive in the mail and many times are accompanied by a coupon. I suggest setting up a separate email account to sign up for these and other online offers.

Email Manufacturers
A great way to get coupons on products you love but do not see coupons for is by emailing the company. Just let them know how much you love their products (no need to ask for coupons). You’ll be surprised what you receive.
