Grocery coupons can make a substantial saving in monthly grocery bills if
they are used wisely. They allow people to get food for less, even
sometimes for free. By using the grocery coupons effectively one can
easily cut the grocery bill in half. Grocery coupons are freely
distributed to consumers in many ways. Newspapers, especially Sunday
editions usually provide grocery coupons often in their retail
advertisement columns. One can also find grocery coupons at entryway area
of shops, supermarkets, malls, shopping plazas and even in cinema
theatres.

Several manufactures, retailers provide online grocery coupons over
internet either online or through email. There are websites they help to
locate and print grocery coupons when people enter their requirements.
People who want to avail these coupons have to visit the website, print
the grocery coupons and present them while making grocery shopping. Some
manufactures often attach free grocery copy on their product packages
that can be exchanged for discount in shops.

Grocery coupons are very useful for those who prefer to buy branded
products, because normally coupons are issued on specific brands.
However, people who buy generic products may not gain much by using these
coupons. Keeping grocery coupons organized product category wise, expiry
date wise in an easy to use organizer make the shopping and savings a lot
easier. It also helps to utilize the coupon before its expiry date.
People always tend to throw the expired grocery coupons as they are
useless. But the military families around the world are able to use them
on base for up to six months after the expiration date if it can be
donated to them. It is always better to give the unused grocery coupons
to others who can utilize them, rather than putting into dust bin.

A rough estimate shows that around $380 billion worth of grocery coupons
are flouting around. However, customers saved only $3.6 billion grocery
coupons last year. So, it is clear that the consumers are not finding
required grocery coupons for the products they really need. And also most
supermarkets say that they are not finding coupons for all their products
purchased by the customer regularly. It shows that there are flaws in the
present distribution system and they are not reaching the targeted
consumers.

With many websites providing online grocery coupon services, this problem
has been solved to some extent. These websites are providing information
about all available grocery coupons online and offer consumers to order
coupons they want or select the coupons from the list for the products
they use. They also provide printable grocery coupons which enable the
consumer to print the desired grocery coupons at their places and avail
the discounts while shopping.
