Extreme Couponing: Where to Find Coupons

 Where to Find Coupons
It seems that everywhere you look you can find a coupon. But there are a few ways to find coupons, out of the ordinary.
Here are my favorite ways which will help you save even more:
1. Newspaper-
This is a little obvious, but with all the printable coupons available, it can be a little easy to overlook. *If you are a sassy couponer then you will be purchasing more than one of your paper. You can actually preview what coupons will be in the paper by clicking here, then you can buy more papers while you are out. *Keep in mind there are never inserts on holiday weekends.
For extras (for free) check libraries, restaurants and fast food places, doctor’s offices, your next door neighbor, some newspaper offices have places for leftover ads, post offices (same thing), recycle places.
**  Many people want to know how people get four coupons or more from the weekly inserts.  Here are ways to make that happen:
Buy multiple newspapers: This is perhaps the easiest one, though not the cheapest. Check your local dollar store to see if they sell the newspaper.  Look for weekly newspapers that carry ads or your local community paper.
Buy multiple inserts: You can just buy the inserts. Coupons By Dede offers the service.
Ask friends, family and neighbors: Don’t be afraid to ask people for their copies, especially if they don’t plan to use them!  Why throw away money, right?
Make friends with paper delivery person:  The delivery person may have a surplus of newspapers at the end of his/her run!
Dumpster dive:  Yes, well this may not be the “proudest” way to get your paper but can be highly effective :)  First, make sure you find out if it is legal to dumpster dive in your state. Then all you need to do is find a recycling bin, and take a dive!
2. Printable Coupon Websites-
These are my favorite because you get to print just coupons you want, there is a good variety, and frequent changes. Make sure that you watch for coupons that may have a limit – you may only be able to print so many or you may miss out b/c others have printed them all.. sometimes the coupon will reset.
Coupon Database – you can use this to see if any product that you want to purchase has a coupon available ‘right now.’
3. Stores Website -
Same as above, may only be for this particular store so pay attention to type of coupon and if they are good to use for stacking with a manufacture coupon.
4. Mobile Coupons -
Give the store your cell number so they can send you coupons on your phone
5. Mobile/Card Coupons-
Text a code to the store and they will put the coupons on your loyalty card or use a site to do the same thing, for some stores you will probably have to sign up for their e-mails to get the code.
6. Manufacture Websites-
Get it straight from the horse’s mouth. Sometimes you have to sign up for a newsletter, they change each month so print your favorites when you see them.
*For your favorite products check their website for coupon offers
7. In stores-
Look around! You can find lots of coupons on the items (peelies), next to the price, on the shelves, in the little coupon machines in front of the items. Keep your eyes open! Take a sales flyer when you come in the door! At CVS, use your card to check their coupon machine.
8. On/with your receipt-
Check all that stuff that prints out with your receipt and check the back of your receipt. Lots of good coupons come with that because lots of times it’s based on what you have bought and many times they are instore coupons so they are stackable!
9. Facebook-
Become a fan (or “like”) your favorite brands. I will always post these coupons as they become available.
10. Magazines -
I haven’t seen a magazine with more coupons than All You. But, look through your favorite magazine, you’d be surprised to see coupons hiding among the ads!
11. Samples-
Most of the free sample offers that you sign up for will come with a coupon for the product, especially those from name brands.
12. Email or Call-
Your favorite companies and ask for coupons – many times they will send you coupons and often even free products!
