Using Coupons is like Printing Money

Using Coupons is like Printing Money

It seems these days that the majority of great coupons are all in printable form. You visit a website, select your coupons and print them out at home. Or, you click on a website and the coupons print automatically.

Manufacturers love printable coupons. It saves them the money of having to print and distribute them to customers, they can better limit how many coupons are produced and used, and they can track which coupons are getting printed (and know which coupons interest consumers).

Me, personally I would rather have all of my coupons already printed in Sunday insert form. Why? Well, it costs me more money to print the coupons than they are sometimes worth, I often have trouble printing coupons, and with so many coupons on the Internet and these coupons changing all of the time, I find it harder to organize my coupons and get all of my match ups done than I did when there were no printable coupons.

Still, we can’t ignore printable coupons, or we will be missing out on big savings and a reduced grocery bill. But what if the issue you have with printable coupons is not just a dislike for them but the lack of a printer? Well, there are still a few ways that you can get around this problem and still print or get those printable coupons even when you don’t have a printer available.

Some printable coupons allow you to preview them first. They don’t go straight to your printer. If this is the case, such and with Bath & Body Works or Rite-Aid coupons, you should be able to save these coupons in jpg or pdf form. Once saved, you can print them elsewhere, such as through a friend or the library.

Your library may also allow you to print directly from the Internet and get your coupons. Library policies vary on printing. You might not be allowed to download the applet needed to print the coupons. Some libraries give you a certain number of pages for free, while others charge a small fee. You can group your coupon images on a single page to reduce the cost and the waste.

Some printable coupons, even the ones that go directly to the printer, give you the opportunity to request the coupons by mail. Usually, you only get one coupon even if the print limit is higher, and it may take a while to get your coupon in the mail. Still, it is an easy way to get the printable coupon when you don’t have a printer.

Target offers kiosks in their store that have printing capabilities. You can use these kiosks right there to print your Target printable coupons.

    Hi, I love your website.
    1. If I print off coupons online, will the cashiers at the stores think they are’nt any good and not accept them? I know there has been issues.
    Please help me before I start printing.
    Sincerely,
    Susan Skinner

      Hi Susan,
      I have heard of stores changing their policy to not accept printable coupons but they are very few and far between. You can also call our local store and ask if they take printable manufacturer coupons.

      Most stores in my area accept printable coupons, but limit the value. For example, the grocery store closest to my house will only accept printable coupons up to $5 in value. That’s the value for each coupon, not a total value.

      Best answer: Next time you go to your favorite stores, ask your cashier or customer service desk what their policy is on printable coupons.

      You can always call ahead if you have the phone number and there is something in particular that you want before the coupon expires, or if the coupon is a higher dollar value.

    I NEED ALL GROCERY COUPONS PLEASE

    I would like free coupons, no printing.

    For those of you who like to brag about having the store owe you money…

    Be glad you can do that. ALL of the stores in my area specify that your coupon value cannot exceed the price of your item. If it does, refunds will NOT be issued.

    “Coupons amount may be reduced so that any combined discounts and coupons do not exceed the value of the item.”

    Some stores offer double coupons (often only up to $0.50 doubled value) but they will only double the first 4 like coupons.

    Some stores also limit the number of like coupons that can be used in a single transaction.

    This is why coupons on the east coast are horribly low value.

    For most coupons it’s not even worth printing. The highest common value is $2. The normal value is 10cents to $1.00, and normally off multiple items. (ie. save 40 cents off 6 of these items) I think the most common is save 50 cents off 2 or 3 of these items. It probably costs almost 50 cents to print the thing!

    Where are the mobile coupons? I’ve heard of them, but I can’t seem to be able to find them! You know, the kind that puts a barcode on your smart phone and you just scan your smartphone and are done. (By the way, Target Cartwheel does this, and it’s awesome. But it’s only for items listed in Cartwheel’s list, not for general coupons.)

    Hi I have same question. How can I get coupons without a printer perhaps via email to print at work?
    Thanks

    • Editor says:

      Hi Filza,
      We send out a daily email with coupons in it. If you go to our homepage, we have a large sign up box. Simply put in your email address and name, and you’ll start getting coupons delivered to your inbox.

      Hope this helps!

    I would like coupons mailed to me. How do I go about requesting that.

    • Editor says:

      Hi Patti,
      Unfortunately, we don’t mail coupons to our users. Often, you can send a letter or email to some of your favorite brands and request coupons or samples. We’ve created a list of companies this has worked on in the past. You can visit it here: http://www.freecoupons.com/coupons-in-the-mail/

      You can also sign up for SundayCouponInserts.com. They’ll mail you the inserts from the Sunday paper for a small fee.

      Another option is the P&G newsletter. They often send great coupons and samples.

      Good luck!
