  • Sunday Newspaper
    I spent most of the presentation talking about digital coupons because coupon has taken a highly digital turn as of late.  But if you want to truly maximize your savings, getting the coupons in the paper each week will help!  How many papers should I get each week?  I’ll tell you how many and WHY, here.
  • Online – we always want to make sure we’re printing coupons from reputable sites that are giving us legitimate coupons and not going to harm our computers.  Here’s where it is safe to print coupons:
    Coupons.com
    Redplum
    Smartsource
    Savings.com
  • More places to get paper (non digital) coupons
    Following your favorite brands on Facebook
    Brand’s Websites

    In store and on products – tearpads, blinkies and peelies (coupons on products)
    In the mail by signing up through various programs
