Not a fan of clipping coupons, or simply want a way to print them instead? Most coupons offered in the Sunday papers are also available online, usually for the duration of a month. There are a few major websites to check out:
Coupons.com is available
right here at AFM!
All of these sites will require you to do two things. First, you’ll be asked to enter your zip code. This simply ensures that you are getting coupons to products available in your area. You are, of course, free to type in other zip codes, to see if other relevant coupons show up for you.
Second, you be asked to install a printer program. In a nutshell, you cannot print coupons without this program. There are limits to how many of each printable coupon you may print, so this program allows the site to keep track of how many of each coupon you have printed. Usually, you can print each coupon twice. When you’ve reached your limit on a coupon, it’ll usually be moved to the back of the list, and it will say that you’ve reached your limit.
Not to fret, though. Most coupons that continue for more than one month will “reset” after a certain amount of time. (Usually one month.)
The major thing you need to know about online coupons: Do not MAKE COPIES of your printable coupons!!! Doing so is fraudulent, AND it brings the entire couponing community one step closer to not being able to use printable coupons. Fraudulent coupons hurt everyone: the manufacturer, the store, AND the consumer. So let’s keep this simple: just don’t do it!
On a side note, digital coupons are on the rise. They can be attached to your shoppers’ loyalty card, or even pulled up on your phone these days. It is virtually impossible (to my knowledge) to make fraudulent digital coupons — at least for the average coupon-savvy Mommy. ;o)
Now, go and print, print, print, so you can save, save, save!
