Coupons can save you a lot of money at the grocery store. But did you know that you can find more coupons in the actual grocery store itself sometimes in surprising places? Here are four area of the grocery store where you can get even more coupons.
At the entrance
When you enter the grocery store, check the store flyer. Not only will it give you a list of sale items, but very often you will find coupons that will double or triple your manufacturer coupons or give you a discount on other products.
In the aisles
You may have heard of “blinkies.” These are coupons that are dispensed out of machines with blinking lights. They are usually placed near the products themselves for easy savings. Usually they cannot be doubled or tripled.
On the shelves
There are two places to find coupons on the shelves. The first is on the products themselves. These are coupons that can be peeled off and used right away (there may also be coupons in the packaging as well). So look around at various brands of your item when you shop.
You can also often find stray coupons just laying on the shelves. Very often fellow couponers will leave extra coupons or coupons for products they don’t need just laying on the shelves near the products. Call this ROAC (random acts of coupons).
At the register
The register can provide you with coupons in one of two ways. First, you can get coupons that print out at the register during checkout. Often these are for competing products from the ones you purchased, so it helps if you aren’t brand loyal.
