How To Print Coupons Online

 

Using coupons is a great way to save money – heck, we’ve devoted a whole site to it! – but you’ve got to get some coupons in your hands before you can start.  Printing coupons online is an easy way to get them right now – on almost anything you could imagine.  Manufacturers release a limited number of coupons online for consumers to print out – usually with a limit of 2 prints per person.(Your computer won’t let you print more after that)

Here’s how to access and print those coupons from your computer:

  1. Register for Coupon Sites:  First, register for the following coupon printing sites and install each of their coupon printer software when prompted.  The major sites that offer printable coupons are totally safe and will not send you spam or put spyware on your computer – they are:
    .

  2. Manufacturer & Store Websites: You will also be able to print some coupons directly from manufacturer and store websites – like Pillsbury.com or Target.com.  These are safe as well and in most cases will send you an e-newsletter occasionally with new coupon offers or product info.
    .
  3. Problems Printing?  In most cases, switching browsers will solve your printing problems.  Some browsers work better for different sites, I use Firefox, and I usually have no problems printing at all.
    .
  4. Searching for a specific Coupon:  Most of the main coupon printing sites will have categories that allow you to find a certain coupon more quickly (Like “Baby” or “Beverages”).
    .
  5. Print 2 Coupons: In most cases, you can print each coupon twice by using your back arrow or simply going through the process again to print.

Video: 3 Steps to Save with Meat Mardowns!

We get lots of questions on how to save money on meat. While we usually just have to wait for a nice sale – there are a few more ways to save on meat.  In this short video, join us as we hit the Meat Markdown jackpot – and go over a few tips to save even more!

      1. Stores start marking down meat as it nears it’s expiration date, in order to sell it quickly.  Scan the meat cases for “$$$ Off” stickers to find these deals.  If you can find “$$$ Off” stickers on an already low sale price – even better!
      2. Since a meat markdown sticker is a discount from the store, you can still stack a manufacturer coupon with it for even more savings.
      3. Even though it may be on or near the expiration date – if you’ve found a great deal you should still stock up. Buy it and either cook or freeze it right away.  If buying raw meat – cook it and season it, the portion into freezer bags for easy taco nights, pasta nights, etc….  Lunchmeats will freeze pretty well in a freezer bag for later use.

Welcome! Thanks for Stopping by!

If you just read aboutTime 2 $ave in Parade Magazine 7 Minute Solution: Save More Money on Groceries we’re so glad you stopped by.

 

If this is your first visit, we’d like to thank you for stopping by. We are excited to have the opportunity to serve you and hope the information we provide guide you as you enter the world of couponing.

Like most, the effects of our nations economy hit our family’s hard. As a result, we attempted to save our family money by eliminating family vacations, taking our children out of extra curricular activities and buying only store brand foods. However, the savings didn’t add up. Out of great skepticism we started couponing. After hundreds of hours of research, months of practice, and many trials and errors our tenacity paid off. We began to see our grocery bill dwindle each week as we learned how to use coupons effectively.

Now, to keep this in perspective we don’t LOVE COUPONS. We don’t wake up every morning excited to cut up coupons or jump on every deal that we can find. Simply put – couponing just happened to be the tool that brought hope to our family’s finances. Most importantly it has afforded us the incredible opportunity to give into the lives of others in ways we never imagined.

You’ll see quickly that we want to offer our community much more than just grocery/drug store savings. Only a small part of our life is spent at the grocery store. We want to speak encouragement to each of you, bring you content that is relative to your life, introduce you to thousands of others in our community and have FUN all at the same time!

Getting Started: Where to find Coupons

Coupons are everywhere! Like so many others, we just weren’t looking in the right places. Below you’ll see some of the common places to spot coupons. Remember even though you may not be purchasing the item at the time, you still want to get a couple (no more than 2) for when you do purchase the item. Goal: Store Sale + Coupon = Rock bottom prices!

  • Sunday Newspaper Inserts – most manufacturer’s coupons come out weekly in the Sunday paper. These coupons are regional, though so you’ll still want to use other sources. The key is to buy multiple copies of the newspaper. This will really help you with stockpiling and allow you to buy multiples of the products. We recommend buying one newspaper per member of your family. Each week we let you know what inserts to expect on Sunday.

Fun Coupon Lingo (For the truly nerdy)

 

Well, after a long day of posting grocery deals and getting my kids backpacks fully stocked – it’s time for a little bit of fun!  You guys probably know already that we have a “Coupon Lingo” list to help you decipher the weird language we couponers use.

But I thought – you know, there are lots more terms I used amongst my couponing friends that we just make up on the spot.  Here are some that have snuck into my own coupon dictionary (or should be there) – what are some you think should join the list?  Do you have any silly lingo to describe part of the coupon world?  We wanna hear ‘em!

Un-Official Coupon Lingo:

“Coupon Fairy” – Those sweet souls who flit around leaving extra coupons on the shelves for others!

“Catalina Diving” – When you rifle through a trash can, pile of receipts, or inspect the cart corral for abandoned catalina coupons.

“Cashier Profiling” – Trying to decide which cashier looks like they’ll give you the least amount of deep sighs and dirty looks before advancing into a line.

“Stockpile Pride” - Getting a little secret joy as you put away the last of the extra groceries on into your stockpile shelving, glance at the results of your hard work, and note approvingly that not only do you have enough to last your family a good long while, but you have enough to give away!

“Beerpads” – Tearpads in the beer aisle involving a rebate or instant savings related to beer purchase (You DON’T always need to buy the beer)

“Pealing” – Stealing a peelie from a package when you’re not buying it, leaving the sad shiny square that a coupon once called home :(

“Blinkie Bandit” – Couponer who holds a stake-out in front of a blinkie machine taking over and over and over (Shame on you!)

“A Raincheck Run” – When your well-planned grocery trip turns into an empty cart and a hand full of rainchecks – empty shelves are so often a fact of life!  But a raincheck makes it all more bearable :)
