    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

    Could we start a coupon robin here?
    I'm not sure whether it's allowed or not.

    Coupons


    I keep hearing advice on the use of coupons and how people can cut
    their grocery bill significantly when using coupons. I went and bought
    a Sunday paper and only found one coupon that I could use, which was
    for toothpaste. The coupons I find are for things we don't eat. They
    are mostly processed, boxed, sugary and unhealthy foods we don't eat.
    For example, boxed cake mix, pop tarts, meals in a box, etc. Is there
    any way to eat healthy and not spend a fortune on your monthly grocery
    bill?

    Re: Budget101.com : Coupons


    We find the same thing so we don't buy the paper to get coupons. My
    parents give us their coupons and once in a while I can find useful
    stuff. This week I saved $9 using coupons for scotch tape, olive oil
    and the like. They aren't all that prevalent, but they are around.

    We are a family of 6, 2 dogs and 2 cats and we eat for $130-160/wk,
    including the animals and toiletries. We make 90% of our food from scratch.

    Re: Coupons


    Buy things like fresh veggie's to cook with, and use less meat for
    starters. Meat is a HUGE expense to the daily grocery grind, and most
    people are raised thinking that every meal needs meat.

    Coupons aren't so much an immediate thing, as they are a build up
    project. You might want to ask around with friends and family and see
    if they don't use coupons, if you can get their coupon flyers. Then
    clip any coupon for any type of food or product you like. Organize
    them, and watch sales. Coupons work best when used in conjunction with
    sales.

    For instance, a few months ago, I had 3 coupons for cereal, $1 off each
    box. Now, I'm a cheap skate when it comes to cereal, because it can run
    up to $4.50 a box! And with 3 kids, we go through a box in 2 days.
    Anyway, a local store had cereal on sale, 3 boxes for $5. Take off
    three $1 coupons, and I got 3 boxes of cereal for $2 total. I also had
    2 coupons for free packages of chips ahoy cookie's, so I grabbed 2 of
    those. I walked out of the store with almost $15 worth of groceries for
    $2, no tax.

    Coupons change each week, too. One week, it might be 1 company who buys
    out most of the coupon sheets, like Proctor & Gamble, so you'll have a
    ton of cleaning & HBA coupons, but few food ones. Just keep at it,
    because more often than not, the value of the coupons can easily over
    come the price of the paper. And it helps when you have friends or
    family saving thiers for you. What you don't use, pass on. There are
    coupon groups you can join where you tell them what you have, or join a
    coupon train where you just stuff an envelope, and mail to the next
    person on the list.

    Re: Budget101.com : Re: Coupons


    Mara,

    I agree that coupons need to be stocked up in the longer term...and I also
    find that most are for products we don't use! I ended up canceling my
    Sunday newspaper subscription because there weren't enough coupons (or
    content) to make it worth my money. Now, my parents give me theirs when
    they're done with it. Sure, they cut out some of the coupons, but there are
    always a few I can use. And you can't beat the price!

    Here on Long Island, anyone who doesn't subscribe to the local
    newspaper (Newsday, like on Everybody Loves Raymond) receives the
    coupon section alone, which is delivered each Saturday.

    That isn't done nationwide?

    Re: Budget101.com : Re: Coupons


    That is a good thing they do it that way there. BUT...nope that is not how it is
    done here in Columbus,OH. The Columbus Dispatch has gone down quite abit on
    coupons available and the online paper is not free and they don't usually have
    coupons printable from it ~~not that I have seen anyways. I personally get more
    coupons/samples by doing it myself from the many online groups I belong that
    what the online groups do is find freebies/coupons for to print/email for/call
    or snail mail. This is actually wayyyyy better and I get coupons and samples
    every single week from so many companys it is amazing! Also one other I do -I
    don't know if they do it there or not -the gas staions (some not all) have
    rewards cards/programs. When yu make purchases/get gas the points are put on a
    card and rewards can even be printed right at checkout soemtimes. Also when you
    buy gas there you automatically get 2 or 3 cent discount plus the rewards
    points. GREAT PROGRAM!!!! I have gotten many free items from
    the gas station (ex:free drinks,hot dogs,gallon of milk etc) plus ther fuel
    savings. Soemtimes 10cents here and there dosen't sound like much but it adds
    up! Hope you have a wonderful day. TamraKay
