Check the latest coupon lists, several updates

There’s always new ones every day, but not new ones on every site every day. About once a week or two is good to commit some time to checking the links and catching up and printing. Also, don’t throw out your Sunday paper. Check for coupons first, always check the individual flyers (Rite-Aid and Walgreens in particular) for store coupons, and if you don’t buy a paper on Sunday, stop by the Herald-journal office during the week and buy them then.

One tip about the Herald-Journal office – they don’t guarantee that the coupons are in the papers they sell you over the counter. Before you leave the counter, flip through and make sure you see all the coupon inserts that were supposed to be in the paper that day. If it doesn’t have it, request a different paper.

I’m adding a new coupon link to the list. Target will offer both manufacturer’s coupons and store coupons, so print them all, because you can combine store coupons WITH manufacturer’s coupons if you shop at the Target, or if you shop at a store that accepts competitor’s coupons (Bi-Lo, for example).

At the Redplum site, there is a full page of new coupons, so even if you printed them in the last few days, check again on pages 1 and 2. Coupons.com always has a dribble of new coupons every day or two. The others tend to release the most at the beginning of the month, but checking every week or two is good also, because new ones will be released at times.

The major coupon sites that will list an aggregate of manufacturer’s coupons are:

Some stores also use e-coupons, loaded by your loyalty card or using your phone number. Go to the website and sign up, that way you don’t even have to print these coupons, you will automatically have them deducted at the checkout line.

Some stores also have their own printable coupons, or they may take competitors coupons. It’s worth it to print these out to match with the manufacturers coupons for double or better on the discount!

Don’t forget that just by walking in the door at Food Lion and CVS, you can get extra coupons printed at their automated machines. You scan the card in the machine’s reader, and it will print out coupons just for you. Some have very short expiration dates (several of the Food Lion ones are meant to be used that day!) so pay attention, but these may be very useful on your trip.

If you do not already do this, I would recommend trying SavingStar. This is a program separate from coupons, you can shop as you normally shop, with or without coupons, and when you use your store loyalty card, savings are automatically posted to your account and you can claim the money online with Paypal. It won’t change anything about your checkout process.
