Here are some tips for finding good coupons.

There are plenty of ways to find coupons.

  • You can find them online. There are many websites that offer discounts, including Amazon and Groupon. You can also download apps such as Coupon Sherpa or Retailmenot that allow you to search for coupons on the go.
  • You can find them in the newspaper (or at newsstands). Most newspapers come with inserts containing coupons for local businesses like restaurants or grocery stores, as well as national retailers like Target and Walmart.
  • You can grab some paper copies from your mailbox each week if you’re not interested in using an app or computer to save money through digital means—just make sure that you’re following all mailing regulations so that it doesn’t get intercepted by anyone other than its intended recipient(s).

Check the company’s website

One of the most obvious places to look for coupons is the company’s website. Many companies have a link or section on their website where you can find deals and coupons. If you see one, don’t hesitate to use it!

Look for websites that share coupons.

The best way to find coupons is to look for websites that share coupons. Here are some places you can start:

  • Coupon sites. These websites focus on a particular product or category, like travel or food. They often have a search function that allows you to find the coupons you want, as well as details about each coupon’s terms and conditions.
  • Coupon sites that share coupons from other websites (like ours!). We offer special deals in our store every day of the week, so check back here often if there’s something in particular you’re looking for! You’ll also find coupons on our blog under “Coupons.”

Look at sites that focus on a particular product or category.

If you’re looking for a particular product or category, look for sites that focus on that category. If you like a certain brand of paper towels, there’s probably a site out there dedicated to giving out coupons and discounts on those products. It’s also worth checking out sites that focus specifically on deals and coupons from specific stores. And if you want to get more unique, try searching for “coupon code” or “promotional code.” Oftentimes these can be found in the comments section of blogs and websites—so do some digging!

Find printable coupons online.

You can find printable coupons online. You can access these coupons in a few different ways, but the most common is to visit the manufacturer’s website (or one of its affiliates).

  • Visit manufacturers’ websites. Many companies have coupon sections on their own websites or those of affiliates. They may even offer exclusive coupons that aren’t available in stores!
  • Look for apps and coupon sites. Apps like Ibotta, Snap by Groupon and Shopmium make it easy to get free money for shopping at supermarkets, drugstores and more—and you don’t need any cash upfront since they let you earn points for every purchase made through their app instead. Some other great options include Coupon Sherpa, RetailMeNot or AllYou!

Ask your friends and family what they use.

To find good coupons, ask your friends and family. They may have a coupon that they don’t know about, or they can share it with you. You may even be able to swap coupons if you want—your friend might have something that you want because it’s on sale, but not at the store where she shops.

Ask around!

Sign up to receive coupons by email.

Once you’ve established that you know how to use coupons, the next step is to actually get some coupons. The easiest way to do this is by signing up for email lists by sites that offer them. There are a few different ways that companies will send you their own brand of coupons:

  • You can sign up directly through their site (sometimes on an offer wall or in the footer of their website)
  • Or they’ll give away free samples of products and then ask if you want to be notified when those products go on sale (this is often done by sampling services like Samplicioin).

Once signed up for these offers, make sure that your spam folder isn’t hiding any legitimate emails from these companies! It’s easy enough to check and see if there’s anything there. If not, try adding them as contacts in your phone or computer so they come right into your inbox every time they send something out!

Follow them on social!

To make the most of social, follow your favorite brands on Instagram and Facebook. You can find coupons and deals by searching the companies’ social accounts.

For instance, if you’re looking for a coupon for baby wipes, search “#babywipes” or “brand name + baby wipes”.

If you’re looking for a coupon or deal from a specific retailer (for example, Target), check out their official Facebook page and click through to see what kind of offers they’re offering at any given moment.

You can get great deals with the right coupons if you know where to look.

Coupons can help you get the products you want, need and even both at once.

For example: You want a new TV but don’t need one right now because your old one is still working just fine. But with the right coupon, maybe you could get that new TV for half off!

Or maybe more importantly, coupons can help you save money on the things that matter most to you like food and medicine.


And, of course, it goes without saying that if you keep looking for coupons online and in person, your chances of finding them will go up. The more time you invest in finding coupons, the more likely it is that you’ll find some great deals! So get out there and start searching for those coupons—it’s worth it!
