Fresh ideas on saving with coupons

September 8, 2009 3:20:39 PM PDT
September is National Coupon Month and our Coupon Queen has some fresh ideas and good remindersBy now, we all know we can pinch pennies by clipping coupons and you might think you already know how to maximize your savings but Coupon Queen, Jill Cataldo, has some fresh ideas and good reminders.

If you want to slash your grocery bill by half or more every week it's time to try Supercouponing that means matching high value coupons to lowest sale prices and stacking your savings.

The easiest way to do all that is go online.

"If you want good sites to print from smartsource.com is a good site, red plum.com is another site," said Jill.

A big complaint from shoppers has been that some stores don't accept coupons printed from the internet but:

"The National Grocers Association recently issued a poster to the stores showing what valid legitimate printables look like and should be accepted and since then we've seen a lot of them relax and accept the printables."

And the truth is most store polices require they do accept printable coupons as long as they're not photocopies. So before you head to the store find that policy on the grocer's website, print it, and take that with you, too.

And remember the Entertainment Book? Now it has an online component for additional savings.

"You can go to entertainmentbook.com, punch in your zip code, and print coupons for your area, too."

The book costs $20 but you can recoup that cost quickly. For instance, just use the ShopRite coupons inside, the book has four worth $5.00 each and ShopRite also doubles manufacturer coupons every day!

"And then you've got all these other coupons to use for the rest of the year. It really does pay for itself."

Jill has put together a very long list of the best manufacturer and store websites to go to for coupons and freebies, which you can see below.

On the internet: Coupons are everywhere on the net! Coupons.com, Smartsource.com and RedPlum.com are the three largest coupon sites, but product manufacturer's sites can be an invaluable source of coupons too. Here are some links to get you started!
