How to Find Grocery Coupons
Posted on Saturday, December 27th, 2008 at 5:58 pm
While most people are familiar with cutting coupons from the newspaper inserts, grocery coupons can actually be found in many different places. Knowing the sources of different coupons can really help you save money when you go grocery shopping. Why come to the store armed with five or six coupons when you can bring an entire envelope?
Here are my favorite sources, other than newspaper inserts, for grocery coupons.
Check online for free coupons that you can print on your computer at home. Some of these coupons can only be printed once or twice, while others can be printed multiple times. Check here at FreeCoupons in the Groceries category and also in past and future blog posts for many coupons that you can print.
All You Magazine and other magazines
All You magazine is a great source of many coupons to clip. Check out my previous blog that mentions this magazine. Other magazines, such as Good Housekeeping and Women’s Day usually offer grocery coupons as well. Ask friends to save these coupons and get low cost subscriptions.
Blinkies are those coupons that come out of the little machines you can find attached to many store shelves. They are called blinkies because there is usually a little red light on the machine that delivers the coupons. Blinkies usually can’t be doubled or tripled, but they can offer additional savings on sale items.
Manufacturer coupon books
Just by signing up for offers, you can get coupon books in the mail from manufacturers such as Kraft and Campbell. Do an Internet search or check out the Special Offers section here at FreeCoupons.
Grocery store flyers
It is always a good idea to check out the grocery store flyers. They usually have coupons for products or for doubling and tripling that can be used with other coupons. Sometimes the flyers that come in the mail have more or different coupons than the ones available in the store, so check in both places for the best savings.
