Almost All Popular Magazines Have Coupons

Magazines are an excellent place to find coupons. For grocery and household coupons, magazines targeted to women are the best source. Family Circle, Woman's Day, Woman's World and Good Housekeeping are examples of the type of magazines which carry grocery coupons on a regular basis.
Many times the coupons found in magazines have a longer time period before expiring than those found in newspaper inserts. Also, the magazine coupons tend to be more seasonal. For example, coupons for food products used in popular holiday recipes can often be found as well as exclusive offers.

Magazines generally target a specific group of people as do the coupons and special offers found within a particular magazine. For example, magazines about beauty and health may have coupons for cosmetics and health-related products. Craft magazines will most likely carry coupons for craft materials. Popular teen magazines will have coupons for popular teen stores and teen related products. Diversifying the types of magazines we subscribe to is one way to maximize our potential savings depending on our needs.

Frugal Ways to Get Magazine Coupons

Subscribing to a magazine is one solution, but there are other less costly ways to collect magazine coupons.
1. Trade magazines with friends and family.
2. Suggest a magazine area in the break room at work for everyone to leave their old magazines.
3. Browse magazines in doctor's waiting rooms. If you see a coupon you want, ask first then clip.
Tip: Always carry a small pair of scissors with you so if the opportunity arises to clip a magazine coupon you are interested in, you are ready.

Product Packaging

Many manufacturers include valuable coupons and rebate forms inside or on product packaging.
Places to look on packages for coupons include:

Removable labels on canned foods and jars.
Lids of cans or bottle caps.
Cardboard covers on frozen foods.
On the paper which wraps around soaps and candy.
Tiny folded coupons within the product, such as in dog foods.
Printed instructions. Example - hair color products.
Also, some manufacturers include printed codes on the product packaging which can be entered at the manufacture's Web site in exchange for a coupon or premium item.
Online Printable Coupons

Manufacturers' Web sites
Manufacturers will sometimes display coupons and other promotional information on their Web sites. Often visitors are asked to complete forms and provide email addresses in order to print the coupon.

Free Grocery Coupon Sites
There are Web sites designed exclusively for shoppers looking for printable grocery and drug store coupons. Some of the sites have agreements with national grocery stores and provide store specific coupons. Other sites have national manufacturer coupons, but also have agreements with grocery store chains to accept the coupons.
Not all grocery stores will accept online printed coupons because of the increase in coupon fraud over the past years. Ask your grocery store manager what the store policy is on printable coupons.

Grocery Store Web sites
Almost all large grocery store chains now have Web sites and many times include coupons, loyalty club perks and weekly circulars posted. This can be a great source for compounding coupon and sales for extra savings.

eBay
Auction sites such as eBay have become a popular source for finding printable coupons. Selling coupons is illegal, however charging for the time spent to collect and organize the coupons is legal. Because of this loophole, there are many coupons available on auction sites. Usually the coupons up for auction come in a bundle, such as 20 coupons for a specific baby food, which makes it a valuable source for items purchased in bulk.

Free Product Offers and Junk Mail
One way to get consumers to try a new product is to offer a free trial size. Many times we avoid such offers because of the fear of getting bombarded with junk mail. But almost always a coupon will come along with the free product. Also, junk mail can be a good source for coupons. If dealt with daily by separating the good from the bad, junk mail can be something coupon clippers actually look forward to seeing in the mailbox.

The Phone Book
There are always great coupons for saving at local stores and services inside the phone book and many times they go unclipped. Often you will find coupons for dry cleaning services, hair salons, auto service and restaurants.

Direct Mail
Companies such as Valpak send monthly coupons through the mail. Most of the time the coupons are targeted at service-related local companies, restaurants and home maintenance. Valpak coupons can also be viewed online.
