Obtaining Coupons: Store Emails & Fliers

Grocery and drug stores aren't the only stores that you can save at by using coupons. You can also save a bundle at home decor, craft, clothing stores and even restaurants simply by signing up for their email/mailing list. Now obviously, as always, if you use the coupon for items you don't really need it is not worth it, but I'm one of those crazy people who rarely purchases something unless I have a coupon for it so I am a big fan of signing up for store coupons.

Here are a few that I've really enjoyed:

* JCPenney- Sign up here for JCPenney emails.

* Bed Bath & Beyond- Sign up here to be put on their mailing list or here for their email list.

Okay, so I love this store and always find all sorts of things I think it would be fun to have when I shop there. We get lots of coupons for 20% off any one item and occasionally even $5/$15 purchase coupons.

* GGP Malls- Go here to sign up to be part of The Club. For those of you that are local, Park City Mall is part of GGP Malls.

This is one of the best deals ever. I have gotten vouchers for free $10 mall gift cards at least five times! Now not everyone gets them every time, but you sure can't beat free money to shop at the mall!

(It appears that the page is acting fluky. I'd recommend using the link above to see if your mall is part of the GGP Malls and if it is, Googling your specific mall name and trying to sign up for The Club that way.)

* Joann Fabric & Crafts- Sign up here to join their mailing list. Once you receive you flier, take the whole thing with you to the store. The cashier needs to scan the bar code above your name and address in order for you to stay on their mailing list. If you don't have them scan that, after several mailings you will get kicked off their list. Not cool.

I frequently get fliers from them with coupons for 40 to 50% off one regular priced item. I typically don't make a special trip just to use the coupon, but if I'm in the area anyway, I often stop by and use the coupons for thread, zippers, buttons or other things that I know I'll use (since I sew quite a bit).

* Ruby Tuesday- Join their So Connected club and you'll receive a free burger on your birthday as well as lots of coupons throughout the year.

These are just a few to get you started. If you have a favorite store or restaurant, visit their website. Chances are they have a link to sign up for their mailing or email list and you can save more when you shop there.

What are your favorite stores to get coupons for?

  1. Thanks so much for gathering this info. Several friends have mentioned getting great JCPenney coupons but I've never got any. I've already signed up!

    Also, did you know that you can use multiple Bed Bath and Beyond coupons. I've taken in several and used them all (on different items of course) One of the sales clerks also said that they never expire, even though they have an expiration date.

  2. Gina, I hope you get some great JCP coupons! And no, I didn't know you could use multiple coupons at Bed, Bath and Beyond. I'm definitely going to have to remember that!

  3. JCPenney is by far my favorite too! I LOVE the $10/$10 coupons and I use them all to get fantastic deals.

    Kohl's is also good. If you sign up you'll immediately receive a $5 off any purchase. We did this once when my husband needed a pair of shoes, combined it with a % off coupon mailer from Kohl's and got an awesome deal on his shoes.

    Isaac's is my favorite restaurant for email coupons. Every year on your birthday you get a FREE dessert. I've never had a dessert better than their Toucan Brownie Nest a-la-mode. Seriously!

    This past winter I posted my top 10 favorites here:

    Oh, and if you get a myPanera card from Panera Bread you regularly get FREE things added to your card if you check it. I recently noticed I had a FREE smoothie, and then when I used it, they told me I also have a FREE beverage, tea or coffee to use before July. Woohoo!

  4. My sister is a friend of your sisters and she told me about your blog. I'm new to couponing and searching for deals. You mentioned in "about you" that you use a site that matches coupons to store deals. What site do you use?
    I love having a local blog that provides insight into local stores and deals.


  5. Hi Krista! Trying to figure out if I should know you or not. :)

    Welcome to the couponing world! It's fun, but can be a bit crazy to figure out. I assume you live in Lancaster here? Two of my favorite blogs are and Money Saving Mom does some store match-ups but For the Mommas does more in-depth match-ups and is very thorough. She covers Rite Aid, CVS, Giant, Weis, Acme and a number of other stores. She also has quite a number of tutorials (if I remember correctly) on how to shop at each store.

    And another blog that posts local deals and also sometimes does Family Owned Markets match-ups is

    Feel free to email me or leave a comment if you have more questions. And blessings as you figure all this out. :)

  6. Thank you soooo much for the helpful info. I don't think we know each other... but I'm super thankful for the blessing of family, friends, and the internet to help one another out. Blessings on your day!


I love your feel free to leave them!
