How to Get Free Coupon Inserts
Posted on Thursday, February 17th, 2011 at 8:10 am
Sunday insert coupons are a great way to save a good amount of money at the grocery store. You can use these coupons to stock up on great deals, especially when you combine the coupons with store sales. Many times, you can actually get a nice chunk of your groceries for free.
In this day and age, most families have to use coupons, in order to be able to afford to feed their family without going into debt.
The problem with Sunday insert coupons, though, is that you usually have to pay anywhere from $1.50 to $2 for the Sunday paper. While this doesn’t see like much, it can really add up when you need several copies of the same coupons each week. While you still can save money even when you have to buy multiple Sunday papers for the coupons, how much more can you save when you can get the coupon inserts for free?
Here are some ideas that you can try to help you get free coupon inserts.
So many people get the newspaper but throw away or recycle the coupons because they can’t be bothered with them. Ask your friends, relatives, neighbors and the people you work with to save the coupon inserts for you.
I belong to a weekly woman’s bible study, and I’ve asked the members of the group to save their coupons for me.
Recycling bins can be another great source of Sunday insert coupons. Whether it is the recycle bin at work or the ones that are available for town residents, you can often pick up 15-20 full coupon inserts, just by reaching into a recycling bin during the week.
You’ll obviously want a nice clean newspaper only recycling bin to dive into, since this will be the easiest and fastest way to find your coupons. The couple of minutes you take to rescue even just a few coupon inserts will be worth a lot of money back in savings.

If you get friendly with your local convenience store manager or someone who delivers the Sunday newspaper, you can always ask for extra inserts. On Sunday night or Monday morning, newspapers are often dissembled and recycled. And newspaper carriers are often given extra inserts that they have to insert themselves.
You might find that simply asking for the coupons will yield you more than you can use!
