It’s only been recently that I’ve gotten so into printable coupons. I have a list of all the grocery items I buy in an Excel grid and on Fridays (I grocery shop on Saturdays) I hunt for printables.
In the beginning, I thought I was limited to the typical online coupon web sites, like Coupons.com, but then I discovered a whole new world of places to find printable coupons. So, here are the four best places to find printables.
Online Coupon Web Sites: I would never knock these sites, but these definitely are not the only places to find good cents-off coupons. I usually start here first. Good sites include Coupons.com, SmartSource.com and CoolSavings.com. There’s also RedPlum.com though I’ve found they have far fewer coupons. I’d say 85% of the coupons are the same across the sites, but I still check each one to find the unique gems.
Deal Forums: I’ve only recently discovered the deal forums like Hot Coupon World and Vicky’s Deals, but these are really great. A Full Cup also just started a compilation of many of the printable coupons on the web. Two more are Spoofee and SlickDeals.
Product Web Sites: It’s smart to visit the web sites for your favorite products. Many times you’ll find money-saving coupons. You can even sign up for their newsletters and can receive coupons by mail or email. Here are a few brands with coupons on their web sites: Gerber, Colgate, Aquafresh, Pillsbury, Crest, Stonyfield Farm and All.
Blogs: There are lots of bloggers out there (like me!) who track down the best deals and post links to the printables that you want. Check out the Money Saving Links to the right of this post. These are sites I visit regularly and that have saved me a ton of money. You can also visit Google Blog Search and enter terms like “printables” and “coupons” and the name of the product you want to find the blogs with links to the coupons you crave.
Good luck. Happy hunting for great printable coupons. If you’ve found a really great one be sure to let me know!
