Tips To Save At The Register – Coupons
There are lots of different ways to save money at the register in this post we are focusing on coupons. Coupons are a big part of saving on your grocery and there are so many different kinds of coupons it helps to know them all. Check out my money saving apps post.
- Manufacture’s coupons in the newspapers and on products are a great way to save. If you don’t like clipping coupons you can ask friends for help or find a clipping service.
- Catalinas are coupons that print at the register. Usually when you buy a certain product it triggers a coupon to print. Some store have savings that print automatically. For example when I shop at Safeway I always get a catalina coupon to save at either a woman’s fashion store or a sporting goods store. Most Catalina’s are store specific and can only be redeemed at that store, be sure to check yours or see if a store accepts competitors coupons.
- Tear-pad coupons are usually found in the aisles of the store. You can tear off as many coupons as you like so often times you may find that all the good coupons are gone. As a good couponer leave some for the next person.
- Blinkies are the little black boxes that dispense coupons for saving on products.
- Peelies are coupons that you find on the products themselves. This is a great way to find some savings that you are not usually on the look out for while shopping. Be a good couponer and don’t take all the peelies off the packages so that other shoppers can save as well.
- Hang tag coupons usually hang on the products and you can use them while checking out on those products they can be manufacture’s or store coupons.
- Internet Printable coupons can be found all over the web. When you are browsing your favorite blog check for coupons. I have a coupons tab for internet coupons. Also check brands Facebook pages to see if they are currently offering also coupons or consumer websites like Target and Walmart has coupons on their sites to print and use in store.
- Store coupons can be found in the sales circulars on in coupon booklets (like the Walgreens savings booklet) , the best thing about store coupons is that you can use them in addition to manufacture’s coupons most of the time so that makes for double savings and a great way to start stocking up on your desired items.
- eCoupons can be loaded directly to your store card so you can just scan your card at check out and save. Savings Star is a great service and P&G also has ecoupons but be careful with them because some stores won’t let you use paper coupons with store coupons.
I hope you learn something about the different kinds of coupons you can find to use when shopping.
