How to use coupons in today's market

Updated on January 3, 2015

Why use coupons

Why use coupons you ask? That little piece of paper, that phone app or mailer you receive can actually save you money on products you use any way. Almost every time you turn around you find coupons in the local newspapers, in your mail box, in your groceries and now even your smart phone has an app for coupons. They are everywhere!

Where to find coupons, freebies and deals

First off I have to mention and that by saving the caps from 20 oz bottles or from 12 packs or cases of coke products you can get free coke products. All you have to do is open a free account and start typing in those codes that will get you on your way to free products. I have received a food steamer, coupons for coke products, mugs, photos and the list could go on and on.

The second site I want to mention is and this site is great for sending you coupons for savings on photo prints, canvas art, magnets, photo books, etc. I have personally used this site for photo books, prints and mugs and everything has been quality merchandise.

The third site to mention is for a huge array of photo gifts including watches, cigarette cases, ornaments, clothing, umbrellas and the list goes on. This site by far offers a huge amount of free items just for opening a free account with them. I have used it for watches for a gift and they were nice quality.

Now we will discuss the value of coupons for groceries. I recommend using coupons that you find in circulars for your local store and if the store allows use a manufacturer coupon to increase your savings even more. For example your local HyVee grocery store offers a coupon for Kellogg's Pop-Tarts where if you buy two at $1.98 a box you get the third one free. Now if you have a manufacturer's coupon for Kellogg's Pop-Tarts use it with the store ad for an even bigger savings.

I do not recommend buying products with a coupon you do not need, will not use or plain and simple do not like just to use a coupon or get the savings. If you don't need it or won't use it then you are not saving money. Give that coupon away or just don't clip it. Stockpiling groceries may sound like a wise idea but do you have the extra money to make it feasible? Do you have the space to store it? Will you use the product? If the answer is no then skip that coupon.

Grocery coupons can be found in local newspaper circulars. The Sunday paper and the Wednesday newspaper usually offers coupons but not always. The best place to find grocery coupons is actually on the internet. Try these to sites to get coupons:,,, to name just a few.
