Obtaining Coupons: Coupon Websites- Part One

This is part of my Obtaining Coupons series. If you missed the 1st post you can read it here.

One of the more obvious ways to get coupons is by visiting websites that allow you to print them. Some of the most popular websites are:

* Smartsource
* Red Plum
* Coupon Network

And then there are sites like that offer store coupons that you can pair with manufacturer coupons. And occasionally you'll even find manufacturer coupons on Target's coupon site. Of course printable coupons also pop up on Facebook or other random places. These are always great additions and usually tend to be pretty high value.

Some tips for printing coupons:
* You can almost always print internet coupons twice. If you are on one of the above sites, go back to the main page then click the last page on the list of coupons offered. You should see the coupon there. If you've reached the print limit, it will either not be visible or will clearly say "Print Limit Reached". If you are printing a bricks coupon (such as this $1 Kashi one) just hit your browser's back button to print your second coupon.

* Save money and print in black and white- it really doesn't need to be in color.

* Reuse paper. For instance, if you have junk mail that is blank on one side, use that blank side to print coupons. Just make sure there is no personal information on it! I've only done this with white paper. I've been to chicken to try it with colored. Anyone ever done that?

Did I miss any coupon websites that you love?

  1. I have actually used colored paper already and I've not had any hassle yet...I guess as long as it is a legit coupon they shouldn't care.~Susan
