8 Unexpected Places To Find Coupons

Tuesday, September 13, 2011

  1. At the grocery store Check the bulletin board at the supermarket— some shoppers will pin up unwanted coupons. Also look on the store’s shelves, where bargain seekers sometimes leave unused coupons near corresponding items.
  2. At the doctor or dentist You can find deals on baby supplies at the pediatrician’s office and coupons for toothpaste and other oral care products at the dentist. Don’t see any in the waiting room? Just ask a nurse or dental assistant.
  3. At the coffee shop Local weeklies often contain coupon inserts and are either free or cheap (about 50 cents a pop!). Also, look for them by the register. Visit discountednewspapers.com to see if you can get your local paper delivered to your home for less.
  4. At the library Check to see if there’s a box where community members exchange coupons. If your library does not provide this service, ask if you can start one. You could also try this idea in the break room at your workplace.
  5. At the gas station Sports drink and snack coupons are frequently posted on the refrigerator doors. Tear them off and redeem at a supermarket that doubles.
  6. At a restaurant When you’re eating out (or getting takeout), ask the hostess or cashier about discounts such as coupons delivered via text message.
  7. At home Some manufacturers will send you coupons when you sign up to test new products (you might have to complete a survey or two). A few to try: Kraft First Taste (kraftfirsttaste.com), General Mills Pssst… (pssst.generalmills.com) and Kashi Community (kashi.com/account/new).       
  8. In the mail When you receive an item you ordered online or from a catalog, look for coupons in the envelope or box.

Thanks for sharing this. I do have to say that I found great coupons for Zyrtec in the pediatricians office. They usually have advil/tyelnol/motrin ones too but child only.

stopping by from vb today. hope it is a great day!

Eek. Reading this makes me feel guilty. I have to start using coupons. Yesterday. I am so overwhelmed by the whole process. I remember my grandmother clipping and clipping and organizing and organizing. Seemed like a whole lot of work for little gain. I think it's worth a try, though. Thanks for the info!

Stopping by from vB members to remember :)

I have a on/off love affair with couponing. But with budgets getting threatened, these tips sure do help. I do not like the extreme coupon craze though. It seems selfish. Glad to follow you on GFC and connecting via Voiceboks!
