The first step in couponing is obtaining your coupons. Here is a list of ways to obtain coupons.
1.Sunday Paper: The Sunday Paper is the most easiest and popular way to obtain coupons. Check with your local area and find out what local newspapers are available. Home delivery will give you the best price and most times incentives to purchase delivery. Check for early editions on the weekend (Friday + Saturday) with cheaper prices. Check your dollar stores for Sunday Papers.
2. Printable Coupons: There are many sites where you can print off coupons. Check our website, www.crazyforcouponing.com under the coupons tab and look at all the different websites that offer regular printable coupons. Also, check out manufacturer websites, facebook pages etc to find exclusive printable coupons. Most sites you can only print out 2 prints per device. You can print coupons from your smartphone from Coupons.com and Grocery IQ by downloading the app under your play store.
3. Emailing Manufacturer; You can email any manufacturer and ask to be put on their coupons,promotions and mailing list. Tell them that you love their products and use them all the time. Praise them. Or if you have had an experience with their product that does not hold up to your standards, let them know.
The way that manufacturers know if they are meeting or exceeding expectations of consumers is by the consumer giving their feedback. Do not come right out and ask for coupons. Go to any manufacturer website and drop them a quick note. Go here for the master list of companies to write. https://www.crazyforcouponing.com/companies-to-write.
4.Trading and buying inserts and clipped coupons: There are many ways to obtain inserts and clipped coupons. There are clipping services. The clipping service I recommend is Kristi Phillips our awesome supplier. There are trading groups in social media, we have one called Crazy For Trading Coupons, There are also insert suppliers that sell inserts. Some will say it is against the law to buy or sell coupons, but there is no law stating such. The coupon reads that if it is sold or transferred it voids the contract. One could say voiding the contract is against the law. Nevertheless this is another way to obtain coupons.
5. Blinkies; Blinkies are coupons that are located inside stores and spit out coupons. They normally are very hard to find coupons and normally are high value.
Even if you are not going to use it right now, grab a couple, “couple” lol. You may use them at a later date.
6. Peelies; Peelies are coupons that are located on products in the stores.
Some stores will not allow you to use the peelies unless they physically take them off themselves.You will find awesome peelies on products, keep your eyes peeled.
