We have to be saving money now more then ever. Since we don’t take the paper any more I miss out on my coupons. I’ve heard of lots of supposedly good coupon printing web sites. Which ones have you used? Was there a charge (if so how much)? Were the coupons good? Did it save you money?
P.S.: I found http://www.coolsavings.com and it’s free. I only found a couple of grocery coupons which applied to what I usually buy though, so I’d certainly consider a paid site if it truly delivers much more.
I’ve known a few people who printed coupons that turned out to be unacceptable. I don’t know which site it was, though.
You might want to consider just getting the Sunday paper. That’s where our coupons are, and I find that I can save a pretty good amount. Our local store just started giving triple on coupons under a dollar, so that works well.
None of the grocery stores in my area take internet-printed coupons.
Walmart does, though. And of course AC Morre/Joanns.
At the top of Frugalvillage.com there are several coupon sites posted. Good luck.
My grocery stores have online coupons that you can “clip” and add to your rewards/frequent customer cards/accounts. If you shop often at the same store, you may want to check and see if they offer something similar. My stores have all the ad items online too, so I can browse the ads even without getting the paper.
(I don’t use a lot of the coupons out of the paper – lately they are for products I don’t use – but I take advantage of store sales all the time.)
I too gave up on the Sunday paper. Couponmom.com is a great site if you have the time and level of organization to invest.
I also like coupons.com.
I have two grocery stores I shop at and they both offer coupons on their site. If I load coupons to my store card they will NOT be doubled so have to be careful which ones I load and which ones I print. One store I shop at you can register your store card and you get special sale prices on different items each week - like half price Dannon yogurt, $0.57 for dozen eggs, BOGO cereal etc.
Target - you can print store coupons from their site which can be used in conjunction with a manufacturer coupon. This comes in really handy with diapers - $2 manufacturer coupon + $2 Target coupon = $4 off diapers. Their site will only let you print 2 of any one coupon so if they have a really good one I will call a friend to have them print 2 for me.
RedPlum and SmartSource (coupon flyers in the paper) have free sites you can print from. They are hit or miss for me.
I’ve used printed coupons for years and never had a store refuse one. I just recently got my mother started on using the sites too.
Good luck !
