Sign up for email lists of your favorite brands, stores, restaurants, etc. They often send out exclusive specials and coupons!
Loyalty / Rewards Programs
If a store, restaurant, etc, offers a loyalty program, sign up! This is a great way to get “VIP” deals.
Coupon Websites (You do need a printer for these)
- http://www.grocerycouponnetwork.com (Also look under the Bonus Coupons section)
- Manufacturer websites (Visit the website of the item you’re purchasing; many times, they will offer coupons)
**NOTE: Oftentimes, you can write a company directly and ask them for coupons using the contact section on the website if they do not have any listed. Most companies are happy to send you some, and they may even send you some free items. This has happened to me several times. A hair line actually sent me a HUGE box full of multiple products for free. I have also received a large container of my favorite raw honey, coupons for free pints of my favorite dairy free ice cream, and more!
- HEB (allows you to see prices of items and offers digital coupons)
- Flipp (shows you ads from your area; also helps you to search for a particular item to see all of the sale prices on it that week)
- Ibotta (sign up via https://ibotta.com/r/uaxsreu to receive a $10 bonus when you redeem your first unique offer; continue accruing and redeeming offers to redeem for gift cards. This is a great way to earn gift cards!)
- Any apps of the stores you visit, i.e. Sprouts and Whole Foods for me (digital coupons) including department stores like Macy’s, DSW, JC Penney, etc.
