Take advantage of combining coupons with B1G1F specials. You get one item free and then save big on the other purchase. Many times, you are going to pay less than 25% of what is the original price

 

Educate yourself before you get started couponing. Know what various terms mean. Become familiar with the policies of your local store. For example, can you use both a store coupon and a manufacturer's coupon on the same item? Does your store double coupons? Understanding the process will save you time and frustration.

 

If you are into couponing, chances are you have some friends and family who are not; so, to save even more money, ask them for spare coupons. Often, companies mail out great high-value coupons or include them in inserts in the local newspaper. Ask friends and family to set them aside for you if they won't be using them.

 

Let your friends and family know you are clipping coupons. What will probably end up happening is that everyone will save their "junk mail" for you. This mail can be a treasure trove of coupons and deals. If they don't want to use them, they miss out--that doesn't mean you have to!

 

Don't forget about online coupons. Traditional paper coupons are great, but there are tons of great coupons online. There are various coupon sites that you can join too. Receiving instant notifications to your inbox can help you get access to many deals before other people. Some sites also have promo codes that can help you boost your savings.

 

Signing up for a couponing website is a good idea so that you can trade with people from other areas. Many companies will print coupons in one area of the country that they do not in others. They are still good nationally, but they may just not be available to you.

 

Buy the Sunday paper. This is one of the best ways to get coupons. If you know someone who gets the paper, but doesn't use coupons ask them for their coupon inserts. Even though the newspaper costs money, the money saving coupons in it will more than pay for the price of the newspaper.

 

Compare prices between the warehouse and the grocer. There can often be a better deal waiting for you at the your local 'warehouse' store. Check online or check the prices between the two, in person, and evaluate the best use of your coupons. You may buy a little more, yet save a little more as well.

 

Smart shoppers understand the value of coupons. They realize coupons help them save money, and so they make sure they use them at every opportunity. Now that you know the tricks smart shoppers use, you are on your way to joining the group. Now get clipping and save some money.
