huffmanumcI love getting to speak to people face to face about coupons!  Tonight, at Huffman United Methodist Church was no exception.  I hope everyone in attendance learned something and is ready to start saving money!

If you didn’t leave your address last night to sign up for my daily email newsletter you can do so here.  You can also follow me on Facebook!

I explained last night that my approach to coupon is a bit different that what you might see on Extreme Couponing.  I prefer Practical Couponing.

We discussed all the many ways to get coupons.  Here’s some of that information again with links directly to those places.

All You as low as $0.63 an issue

Mobile and e-coupon programs:

  • SavingStar  sign up here
    works with Winn-Dixie, CVS, Rite-Aid and others
    load offers to your store card and receive it as cash back after purchase
  • Ibotta  sign up here
    works with CVS, Walgreens, Rite Aid, Dollar General, Target, Publix, Walmart, Sam’s Club, Whole Foods and more!
    scan your receipt and items after purchase and receive cash back
    requires a smart phone
  • Checkout51  sign up here
    works at ANY store.  You can upload receipts via phone app or by taking a picture and uploading via your computer.
  • Shopkick
    works with Target and other retailers
    mobile coupons to use as well as offers to earn points you can redeem for giftcards
    requires  a smartphone
  • Shopmium
    similar to Ibotta and Checkout51
    find the app in your phone’s app store
    use code MCACKKRG to get an extra freebie when you sign up!
  • Target
    Mobile coupons by text and via the new Cartwheel program
  • Winn-Dixie ecoupons
    coupons you load to your store loyalty card to receive a discount at the time of purchase
    cannot be used with manufacturer coupons (because they are manufacturer coupons)
    one per purchase
    do not double
  • Publix ecoupons
    add the coupons you want to your account.  enter your account number (phone number) at the register to receive a discount at time of purchase.
    can NOT be used with your regular coupons.  If you have a Publix ecoupon for $1 off Cheerios, when you enter your phone number at the register it will deduct the $1 – the register will not take a coupon for $1 off Cheeries after e-coupon has been applied.  (The reverse is also true, if you give the paper coupon first the ecoupon will not deduct)
    one per purchase
    do not double


Finally, here are some things I did not get to cover in class:

I didn’t have time to talk about rebates, but they are a great way to save on your grocery bill!  Read about how to get started with rebates or start finding  rebate offers!

I also didn’t get into all the many ways to save on things besides groceries, like saving money when eating out, finding free things to do with the kids, little tips to save on small things that add up, finding samples or completely FREE things and saving money online by shopping at Amazon or getting cashback with Ebates on your online purchases.

And speaking of Amazon, you can earn FREE money to spend at Amazon using sites like Swagbucks!  (I earned over $100 last year from Swagbucks and I used it to buy Christmas gifts with!)

And don’t forget to sign up for the baby clubs at Winn-Dixie and Publix.  Plus, read up many ways to get coupons, samples and save on baby needs in my baby savings series.   And sign up for FREE magazines (yes, completely FREE) that contain coupons!

I hope this will help you get started and if you ever need anything, I’m just an email, comment or Facebook message away!
