    Default Coupons- Where do U Go?

    Someone mentioned coupons from the internet a while back. Where do
    you go for these? I noticed one local grocery store doesn't accept
    them any more because of fraud. Another store frequently offers five
    coupons for triple coupons--and would like to know wwhere to get

    coupons on items I regularly use.

    I buy four copies of the Sunday paper for $1.00 each. There are alot
    of sites online that you can get coupons that you can print, but they
    no longer accept coupons off the internet in my area. Some of the
    ones I used in the past were:
    http://www.coolsavings.com
    http://www.valuepage.com
    http://www.boxtops4education.com (join their booster club)
    http://www.eversave.com
    these are just a few, hope that helps

    Tiffany,

    There are many places to obtain coupons.

    -newspaper inserts and newspapers themselves
    -magazines
    -flyers
    -store shelf pads, product brochures (some stores have an
    information shelf or kiosk where they place these)
    -from websites, either the company's site or a coupon generating site
    -inside product packages, on or inside product labels, sometimes
    attached as a sticker to the package that you peel off
    -hangtags on product packages
    -unwanted coupons left on the product or shelf by other customers

    Some stores also have coupon exchange bins - you drop off unwanted
    coupons and take the ones you want.

    Also, ask family or friends for their unwanted coupons. If you are
    specific in what you want, they will often save them for you.

    There are many coupon trading groups as well. If local, they usually
    meet regulary to trade coupons. If long distance, they will trade
    by post. The disadvantage is that you are paying for postage and
    envelopes but if the value of the coupons you get exceed the expense,
    it may be worthwhile. The key to these groups is to be very
    specific about what you want.

    You can also contact the company and ask if they have any coupons
    they can send you.

    I also frequently write letters to the companies indicating why I
    like their product, or why I don't and suggestions for improvement.
    I always get a response back and they usually send something extra.
    I've received everything from recipe booklets to coupons to free
    product. Hint: send a letter by post, not by e-mail. If you e-
    mail the company, they will just e-mail back with no extras.

    The advantage is that if I like the product, they keep making it. If
    I don't, they may improve it. And sometimes it has added benefits.
    I once wrote a letter to Durkee Franks indicating how much I liked
    their hot sauce. The sent a letter back with some coupons. A year
    later, I received a letter from them stating that they were changing
    their recipe for the hot sauce and asking if I was interested in
    being a tester for the new formulations. I received a few bottles
    of hot sauce for free and only had to complete an evaluation form.

    Another time, I wrote a company with a suggestion for an applicator
    for a personal care product. They wrote back indicating that they
    liked my suggestion and sent me some free product as a thank you.

    And be sincere, there has been so much abuse that many companies have
    either stopped consumer promotions, decreased them, or imposed very
    stringent rules.

    Hope this helps.

    Re: Coupons




    I don't use coupons, just can't seem to make it worth it. I don't
    get the Sunday paper and when you buy it from the newstand it is hit
    or miss whether it will have the inserts. You are only guaranteed
    the coupons and circulars if you subscribe. This is not the first
    town I have run in to that. We don't have coupon sections every
    week either so they are not easy to come by for me. Plus, only one
    store in town doubles them, and they are closing. The regular
    stores I find I can save more by buying the store brand at the
    warehouse type store I go to (Food Maxx) than by buying the name
    brand and using the coupons. I shop the loss leaders and only buy
    sale items.

    Jenny,
    If you go under yahoo group home just like you probably started with budget101
    they have a few coupon groups there. I belong to couponmania. I clipped all of
    last weeks coupons and have to clip this weeks coupons so that I can post my
    list to see if anybody needs any of them. I've never actually "used" it per se
    since I haven't contacted anyone from it. I don't know if that makes sense or
    not, hope so. Anyway, from what I've seen people clip the coupons then either
    trade them, ask just for a SASE, or charge like $.03-$.05 per coupon then have
    like 1 time a month this one person does $.01 a piece. Like I said I haven't
    actually contacted anyone regarding the coupons but I'm going to at least give
    it a try. It can't hurt, right?

    Good luck.
    Jenn
