Online Coupons:This is where I felt completely lost at first. I would go to different websites and look for online coupons, to find that I was seeing the same coupons over and over again. You will need to familiarize yourself with several websites:
In addition to these websites, you can also find many high dollar coupons offered through popular networking sites, such as facebook and twitter. Numerous manufacturer’s websites will also offer coupons for their products. Normally there will be a “special offers” tab or “coupons” tab at the top of their page. Look around for these key words and you should be able to locate the coupons that company is offering.
The Sunday newspaper is the largest distributor of coupons we currently have. Most coupons used come from newspaper inserts. There are 3 coupon inserts available:
- Red Plum
- P&G Brandsaver (Proctor & Gamble)
You can also find manufacturer coupons in magazines. A great example of this is All You magazine. You can purchase this at Walmart or through the All You website. This magazine is a great source for coupons each month. There is a new issue every month and the magazine is very inexpensive. The money you spend on this won’t begin to compare to the money you’ll save.
Always check the front of your stores for coupons. Many grocery stores have racks with store coupon booklets you can pick up from them. If you don’t see any, never hesitate to ask customer service if they have any in stock. Sometimes these booklets go quickly, so if you see any, grab one! You never know when you might need a coupon they offer.
Some stores also have store coupons on their websites. One of my favorite stores that offers printable coupons is Target. Check the site throughout the month to see if they’ve posted new coupons and remember, store coupons can be stacked with manufacturer coupons to drastically reduce the price of an item.
Electronic coupons are coupons you load directly to your store loyalty card. These are manufacturer coupons that can be loaded from the internet to your store card and when you scan your card at checkout, the coupons are automatically deducted from your total. Not every store participates in this program. Here is a list of stores that offer eCoupons: Bakers, Carrs, City Market, Dillons, Dominicks, Fred Meyer Frys, Genuardis, Gerbes, Hilander, JayC, King Soopers, Kroger, Owens, Pavilions, Pay Less, QFC, Ralphs, Randalls, Safeway, Scotts, Shop Rite, Smiths Tom Thumb and Vons.

Another source for coupons is mobile coupons. Target has mobile coupons that are sent to your smart phone. Find the link on target.com for mobile coupons and sign up with your cell number. You find the coupon on your phone, then scan the barcode at checkout. It’s very simple and user friendly.
