Do Coupons Save You Money?

Do coupons save you money? The short answer to this question is yes. But, you have to use
them in order for the coupon to be of any benefit. Here are some ways that coupons can save
you a lot of green.

Coupons used to be only paper. You could cut them out of the Sunday paper and they were
good for a month or two. Now, coupons are in the newspaper, magazines, printable from
websites and in the form of online coupons that are great when shopping on the Internet. With
so many choices for coupons, you can save money at every turn.

   1. Cut out coupons for the grocery store. People have to eat. It’s a fact of life. Those
      coupons in the Sunday paper are good for everything from cat food to candy bars (not
      that you should eat a lot of those). Snip all that may apply to your household needs.

   2. Get organized. Use a slotted folder or one of those coupon expandable files to hold all of
      your coupons. Categorize the slots so every time you go to the grocery store, you can
      pull out the stack of coupons that pertain to the goodies in your buggy.

   3. Use coupons for other things besides the grocery store. Coupons can be found in
      magazines on advertising pages and in amongst your mail on other days of the week.
      There are coupons for restaurants, car repairs, mattresses and carpet steam cleaning.
      Everyone will need car repairs at some point (especially after your last payment) so
      those auto coupons can come in handy.

   4. Present your coupon before you buy in some instances. This applies to restaurants and
      car repairs. If you have any questions about the coupon’s validity, ask before you spend
      the time shopping. If you can have your brakes serviced for $100, be sure that it includes
      both sets of brakes and the rotors and/or brake pads. Know what you are getting so you
      can judge if the coupon is a good deal.

   5. Look for other bargains to pair with your coupons. Coupons can be just like money – it
      burns a hole in your pocket. If you have a coupon for 20 percent off your purchase at an
      electronics store, shop the store circular to see if they have anything on sale that you
      want to purchase. Save that 20 percent off coupon for when that laptop you want goes
      on sale. Now, you’ll get an extra percentage off the total price.

   6. Use store incentives. Some stores (mostly grocery stores) offer coupons and discounts
      just for signing up for their store incentive card. Just by walking in the store, you receive
      a discount on many items they sell. In combination with a coupon you can save more.

Coupons can save you money on clothing, groceries, automotive needs, travel and movies. To
get the most bang for your buck, read coupons carefully and bide you time before you use them
to receive the greatest benefit.
Find Money Saving Coupons

Now that you know you can save money with coupons where do you find them? There are the
obvious places that coupons hang out, but you may not be aware of some other places you can
get coupons. Keep reading to find out more.

The most likely place to find money saving coupons is the newspaper. On Sunday especially,
the newspaper is full of store circulars and coupons for products you use all the time and new
items that you can try for next to nothing. This is the first place that everyone looks.

Manufacturers also offer printable coupons online. These coupons have barcodes and can be
printed off of your printer and used in the store they pertain to. Most people don’t think about
these coupons but they save you lots of money.

Have you ever received emails with links to recipes for sites like Betty Crocker, Bisquick or
Cooking Light? If you like to cook or rather like to eat, check out these links. You can
unsubscribe to these emails whenever you like, but give them a look first. Not only do you find
interesting recipes but also offers for coupons. Simply agree to receive new offers and your
electronic mailbox will be full of coupons for cake mix, pancake mix, free trial size lotions,
hairsprays and other toiletries.

Printable coupons are also available on websites. Try sites like www.coolsavings.com or
www.allprintablecoupons.com. You can search by category or brand name to find coupons that
fit your needs. Click on the coupons that you want and then print them out. It couldn’t be easier.

If you belong to survey sites, you know that you can make extra money by offering your opinion.
Some survey sites also offer points for taking advantage of their offers through links on their
sites. On MyPoints.com, one of these discount links leads to printable grocery coupons. Every
coupon that you redeem at the store earns you points towards gift card rewards when you reach
a certain points level.

Don’t neglect all those magazines you buy. While you are reading the articles and looking at the
pictures, take a glance over at the advertising pages. Many advertisers include a coupon along
with their ads to entice customers to buy their product. Some types of coupons offered can
include, Buy One, Get One Free or up to $1.00 or more off of a starter pack for air freshener or
a new mechanical mop. If you ignore them, you’ll be throwing away money.

Look for displays at the front of your grocery store. Some grocery stores have coupon bins
where customers can drop off coupons that they don’t need in case someone else can use
them. There could be a coupon worth using in there if you take the time to look.

Coupons are a valuable asset to the shopper trying to save money on all of their goods and
services. Get in the habit of looking for a coupon deal everywhere so you don’t miss out on
great savings.
What You Need to Know About Online Coupons

Online coupons are the wave of the future. Technology has afforded us the ability to shop in
cyberspace and that has extended also to saving money there. Before you shop again learn a
few facts about online coupons.

Online coupons are not like printable coupons that you find in newspapers and magazines.
Online stores can’t scan your coupon like they do in the store. Instead, you will see a picture of
a coupon that has a bolded code made of numbers and letters at the bottom. This code is the
way that you use online coupons.

Some sites call this code a coupon code and some call it a promotional code. The two names
are interchangeable. A coupon code (we’ll call it that since we are talking about coupons) is
used at checkout just like in the actual store.

But, where do you find these handy coupon codes for online coupons? Stores don’t tell you this
but there are sites that list coupon codes for a number of popular stores. One such site is
www.currentcodes.com. This site keeps up with the latest codes so you don’t have to spend
tons of time visiting website after website to find the code you’re looking for.

If you get an offer through an email from a site to shop there, go to your coupon code site and
see if that store offers any coupon codes you can shop with. It is like a goldmine for online
shoppers. There are online coupon offers like “Free shipping on all orders”, “Save $50 on all
orders over $100”, and “15% off your entire order.”

Online coupon codes do expire so be mindful of time limits. Read the fine print after each
coupon code so you know the exact requirements for the coupon code to be valid. You don’t
want to get to check out and find out that you can’t use your code.

Some online coupons are presented to you in the form of links. If you’ve ever bought anything
online, you will get an email from everyone wanting you to spend money with them. In the email
ads, you’ll see things like “Click here to save 10% on your next order.” By clicking on that link,
you are taken to the offer website to the page where you can use your savings. Upon checkout,
your savings are automatically deducted because you clicked on the discounted link. But, check
to be sure you aren’t being ripped off.

With online coupons, there are no long lines to stand in and you don’t use up your precious gas
driving to the store. Many online stores offer deals on items that aren’t for sale in their physical
stores. These coupon codes take some time to find, but they add up to big savings for the
diligent shopper.

Online coupons save the shopper tons of money. Printable coupons offered by websites also
save you money when you want to venture out and visit the actual store. If you want to find
more coupons than the ones in your Sunday paper, here are five of the best sites for coupons of

4 Places to Find Free Coupons

They say the best things in life are free. That extends to coupon offers as well. For all that you
do every day, its okay to take advantage of a few free deals. Besides, if someone is offering
them, they want you to benefit obviously.

Why are free coupons available?

In short, it is a great advertising move. You have to spend money to make money. And, in
business, you want to make money. Free coupons get you to shop for one thing and the
advertising will get you to try something else while you are there.

There are plenty of places to find free coupons if you know where to look. Here are just four of
the most popular ones.

Magazines, Newspapers & More

The first place to look is your reading material. In among all of the other coupons you receive,
there are always a couple of free ones lurking. In magazines, advertisers love to slip in a free
coupon for a trial sample of their latest hair care product or lotions. When new stores open, they
are glad to send out coupons for free scoops of ice cream or a tree trial size item just to get you
to visit the store.

Survey Sites

Survey sites are also places to find free coupons. You can use free coupons for other things
besides groceries. For filling out surveys on sites like Nubella.com you will be able to take
advantage of discount links for free beauty products and trial sizes of food products.

With these short surveys, you can also gain access to free doses of medication. When your
doctor prescribes a certain drug for you, you can use the free coupon at the pharmacy to save
on your prescription bills. Who couldn’t use that nowadays?

Websites

Online, you can surf the Web for sites offering free coupons. Now there are some scam artists
out there so read the entire coupon offer before clicking on anything. If the coupon is free, the
only vital information you may have to enter is your email address or physical address and your
name. Anyone who asks for financial information is out to get you.

Try a site like www.mysavings.com. Just for signing up for a free membership, you gain access
to hundreds of free coupons that will save you money. Once you sign up for membership on one
site, others will be knocking at your virtual door asking you to sign up with them.

Your Inbox

Your email is another great place to find free coupon deals. Before you clear out that bulk mail
folder or delete your junk mail, look through the subject lines. You are bound to come across a
coupon site or two.
Who wouldn’t want to open their mailbox and find coupons for freebies or a box of free
samples? It costs you nothing but an email address to get started with most of the sites online
and since it’s free, you can cancel at anytime you wish.
