Coupon Handbook Series Post 2

July 17, 2009

Coupon Sources:

  • Newspaper Inserts: This is the best source.  Don’t forget to ask friends and family members for their unused coupon inserts!
  • Internet Printables: Found on coupon websites, blogs, manufacturer sites, etc.
  • In stores: Check for coupon inserts by customer service desks, sales flyers or pharmacy counters.
  • Tearpads: Found near products in the aisles.  Grab a few coupons for a future sale if it isn’t on sale now!
  • Coupon Exchanges: Trade coupons with friends or find a coupon exchange online.

About the newspaper subscription…

Yes!  You DO need a newspaper subscription (or two!)  It’s cheap, and it’s totally worth it!  Here’s the kicker… not all newspaper coupon inserts are created equal!  If you are in the Chicagoland area, get the Chicago Tribune.  It has the best and the most coupons BY FAR!  A Three-day subscription can be just 50 cents a week with the proper coupon code!  For some reason, just the Sunday paper costs more.  Plus, I got a $25 Restaurant.com gift certificate just for registering my subscription online!

If there is a fabulous coupon in the paper, or several coupons that you know you’ll use, go ahead and buy a few more copies of the paper that week.  It’s a small investment for a big return.

To get the Sunday Tribune for 50 cents per week, enter the coupon code 09JE at checkout
