Do you ever feel like you would get more out of couponing without the hassle of clipping paper coupons? If so, you’re in luck! Electronic coupons are a great way to save, without clipping a single coupon!

A 1-2-3 Guide to Electronic Coupons

Electronic coupons are a force to be reckoned with thanks to constant advancements in technology. Nowadays you can search the web for specific coupons and deals. You can even use your Smartphone to redeem coupons at checkout! Just the other day I received a coupon for Bath & Body Works via email. I forgot to print the coupon before I went to the store, so instead I just handed over my phone to redeem the coupon. How cool is that? Electronic coupons can come in one of several forms.

1) The Printable Electronic Coupon

The first type is the printable electronic coupon. These can often be found online via manufacturer websites. You can also find them in the printable coupons section of Freecoupons.com, where we collect printable coupons from all over the web so you don’t have to search. The printable coupon may not require clipping, but keep in mind it does require printing.

2) The Coupon Code

Another form of electronic coupon is the coupon code. Coupon codes are generally words or numeric codes that can be entered during online checkout to receive a percentage off your order, free shipping, or another type of bonus. Coupon codes are most commonly found online on both primary and secondary sites. The coupon code is a great way for the occasional couponer to save money with not too much effort. Before you complete your next online checkout, make sure you do a quick web search for coupon codes specific to your order!

3) The Saving Card Electronic Coupon

The third type of electronic coupon, and possibly the one with the most saving potential for avid couponers, is the saving card electronic coupon. With saving cards, you just load your electronic coupons directly onto a participating store savings card. When you swipe your card at checkout, the discounts will be automatically applied. For example, on websites that offer saving card electronic coupons, you just click “add” to put the coupon on your saving card. Check out Shortcuts.com for more on saving card electronic coupons!

Good Tip: Saving money is important – especially if you have a lot of expenses like bills to pay, loans to pay off, and all the other things that drain your bank account. Figuring out a way to save money can feel tedious to some, and like a punishment to others. U.S. News suggests that you try one of these money saving challenges. The “No Eating Out for a Month” Challenge This one is self-explanatory. The goal is to avoid eating out for an entire month. This might be super easy for people who enjoy making meals at home. People who really enjoy dining out, or ordering food to be sent to their home, may struggle with this one. It’s worth a try because spending money on take-out is more expensive than buying groceries. The Pantry Challenge This one is a variation of the “No Eating Out for a Month” challenge. The goal is to use up all of your groceries before you buy more. It forces you to try and remember why you bought a food or beverage that you don’t know what to do with, and gives you the opportunity to find a way to use it. The one exemption to this challenge is the foods that have expired. Don’t eat them! Throw them in the trash. The “No Spend” Challenge Make a goal to avoid spending money during an entire weekend. The only exemption in this challenge is that you are allowed to pay bills. This challenge is interesting because it requires creativity. You must be creative and find workarounds for problems that you would typically solve by spending money. You may have a different outlook on spending after finishing this challenge.
