Printable Coupons

Printable coupons are all the rage these days, because you can start saving money today as long as you have a home printer and paper.  Let’s talk about what printable coupons are, how you get them, and where you can use them.

Printable coupons are coupons you can print from the comfort of your own home.  You will need a home computer, internet access, and a printer.  In most cases, you will need to install a ‘coupon printer activator’ to be able to print coupons.  This is a quick software download on your computer.  It is typically safe to download this software from the coupon sites.  The reason for this software is to provide reasonable limits in the number of coupons you can print at home.

There are several reputable sources for printable coupons.  These include: Coupons.com, Red Plum.com and Smartsource.com.  All three websites offer a variety of coupons for a large number of name brand products.

Another great way to get printable coupons is by visiting the manufacturers’ website, directly.  For example, if you are interested in coupons for a Betty Crocker product, you can visit the Betty Crocker website.  You will usually find a link to their “Coupons” or “Offers” available.

An invaluable and extreme time saving way to find coupons you can print at home is by using a coupon database.  Reputable coupon databases are updated daily with the latest coupons available.  Searching these data bases for the coupon you need is perhaps the greatest time saver available.

You can use coupons at most retailers.  Big box stores like Target, Wal-Mart and Kmart or drugstores like CVS or Walgreens accept printable coupons everyday.  Most grocery stores also accept printable coupons, but some may have limits as to the number or the value of the coupons they will accept.  The best way to find out if the stores you shop regularly accept these coupons is by stopping by the customer service desk as you make your way into the store and inquire about their coupon policy.

    I think that you are doing a great shop in educating biginning couponers (such as myself on how to properly learn how and when to use coupons. With your guidance I look forward to learning, and becoming an advanced couponer. Thank you so much.

    just purchased a second computer to print coupons with, should I set it up with my same email address or do I need a new email address to be able to print 4 coupons instead of just two?

    Thank you so much for the creator and helpers of this site. It has helped me a lot in the past couple of months. I’m a single mom of 3 who has only one income, mortgage, car payments, and all of that good stuff. One thing I noticed in the past two months is that every newspaper brings different weekly circulars. For example one company might have rite aid and the other one don’t. Another thing I noticed in the supermarket circulars not all of them have the same coupons. I noticed some had General Mills coupons and others didn’t (Price Chopper circular). I also noticed that the USA newsletter that comes in most newspapers on Sunday have the same problem, some comes with coupons and others don’t. It is a print mistake but I noticed more and more is happening. I usually buy 7 newspapers every Sunday and that is why I had noticed the difference. Has anyone experience this problem?

    Also, I’m not able to download the coupon.com application to print coupons due to restrictions at work which is the only computer I have and use, do you have any suggestions on how I can get these coupons without downloading the application to the computer?

    is there an app I can download scannable coupons to my android phone? I know there is an app for scanning a bar code and checking to see comparable prices in the area but I can’t find the name of it. I have many apps on my phone but none to what I need.

    I appreciate any help you can provide.

    Walmart,

    I wanted to ask you for your support in enforcing Walmart price match policy. if you had any problems with Walmart (staff) match pricing as I had in the past I suggest you send an e-mail to headquarters and report the person (persons) who gave you the hard time price matching and using coupons so that Walmart is aware of what is going on. I had 4 incidents in my local Walmart with the Assistant Manager and when I spoke with the Manager he agreed with me, unfortunately my hours didn’t match with the store managers and so every time I had to shop at Walmart the Assistant Manager gave me a problem, so I reported the incidents to headquarters. It is time to unite and make sure people like this assistant manager and staff treat customers with respect and patience because it is a process but that is their job to help us with our transactions.

    Walmart store # 2897
    Headquarters:
    Wal-Mart Stores Inc. 702 S.W. 8th Street Bentonville AR 72716 Phone: 800-925-6278 E-mail: info@wal-mart.com . They will give you a report number once you call them with your complaint.
