While printable coupons are wonderful, sometimes they just aren’t practical. If your store still lives in the dark ages and won’t accept printable coupons, or if you don’t have a printer, or if you find that it costs more in ink and paper to print coupons, then you would rather have coupons that are already printed.
There are a few ways to get free coupons in the mail. Take advantage of the following tips to fill your mailbox with coupons.
Sign Up Online
Add your name to several coupon mailing lists to get regular coupons in the mail. Also sign up with manufacturers for any coupon offers that they may have. Many brands still in fact mail out coupons and often include free samples of their product as well.
Coupon publishers, such as Redplum, also offer the option to contact them and sign up to receive coupons in the mail. Do your research and sign up for as many offers as you can. Since many of these services and brands require an email address, you might want to establish a separate one just for coupon offers. This may your regular email address won’t be bombarded with advertisements and promotions.
Here are some of the more popular places to sign up for coupons in the mail, just to get you started.
Use the Mail Option on Printable Coupon Offers
Did you know that many printable coupon offers also have an option to have the coupon mailed to you instead? Many people don’t know about this. Look for a little message or link that says something such as “Having trouble printing the coupon?” Often, this will lead to a way to give your address and have the coupon mailed to your home. Of course, it may take longer to get your coupon that way, but at least you have the choice.
Most of the time, this mail option exists on single manufacturer coupons. coupon websites, such as SmartSource or Coupons.com don’t usually offer the ability to receive the coupon or coupons by mail.
Order Coupons from Clipping Services
Clipping services will clip or print coupons for you and then mail them to your home address. You can often pick and choose which coupons that you want and in what quantities. Because this is a service, you will incur a fee for your coupons, but most of the people who use a clipping service say it is well worth the small expense in order to save so much on their grocery bill.
Again, do your research. Look up clipping services and find out what their reputations are before you commit to ordering coupons in the mail. Here are some of the more popular coupon services that you can try.
Like your favorite brands on Facebook
While many brands on Facebook offer you free coupons that you can print, many also offer coupons in the mail. You may have to like the page before you can find out if the coupon can be mailed or if it has to be printed.
To find all of the various Facebook coupon offers as they are available, just check the FreeCoupons.com coupon blog on a regular basis. Then take advantage of the offer right away, since free Facebook coupons tend to have a high value don’t usually last very long.
