I often get asked “How do I find coupons?” or “Where do you get all of your coupons?” Are you wondering that too? Do you want to know where these bloggers or extreme couponers find all of those coupons? I’ll let you in on my secret and show you many places you can find coupons codes, printable coupons, store coupons, product coupons, and more.
Where to Find Coupons
If you are looking for printable coupons, then let’s first narrow down what type of printable coupon you are seeking.
For finding coupons on products you buy at the grocery store or drug store, you have a couple of options.
- Printable coupon sites can have hundreds of coupons available. These vary each month and many have print limits. You need to have your own computer printer in order to get these. Here are a few helpful places to find printable manufacturer’s coupons.
- Many stores offer store-specific coupons. Some of these coupons are the same ones you will find from coupons.com and other sites like that.
- Go to the company’s website and see if they have any offers on their site.
- Use Google. In the search box below enter “printable coupon” product/store name. See what comes up. You may want to refine your search to only look for content over the last few months.
How to Find Printable Coupons for Retail Stores and Restaurants.
You can use the same Google method above. Like above, in the search box enter “printable coupon” store name. Narrow down the search by limiting the time frame or just look through images.
Be sure to subscribe to the email of your favorite stores and restaurants. Many companies often send out coupons throughout the year and during special events such as birthdays.

Find Coupons in The Newspaper
The newspaper often has coupons, especially on Sundays. In the paper, find both product and store coupons. In addition, check out the frequently updated interactive coupon database. Search thousands of printable coupons, newspaper coupon inserts, magazine coupons, rebates, and more. For discounts on newspapers, Amazon sells discounted newspaper subscriptions or check out DiscountedNewspapers. Also, check with libraries, hotels, and coffee shops to see if you can have the coupon inserts from their newspapers.
Coupons for New Residents
When you move to a new city or even a new home, many companies will give you coupons. You can usually get a coupon packet when you submit a change of address at the post office.

Ask For Coupons
I have gotten coupons by just asking the company who makes the product. Read the post, How to Ask for Coupons for more details.
Stores will often have coupons hanging near the product. Before I pick an item off the shelf I check to see if there is a coupon hanging nearby for the item.
How to Find Coupon Codes
Just like printable coupons, be sure to subscribe to emails from your favorite stores.
Again, search Google. Be sure to narrow down your searches to a current time frame.
Amazon is a little bit trickier in terms of finding coupon codes. Read How to Get Amazon Coupons, Discounts, Deals, and Free Stuff here.
Don’t Forget About Mobile Coupons!
Get these coupons right on your mobile phone or tablet. Programs and apps let you download coupons on phone. Check out the Target Cartwheel App and Ibotta, for example. Walgreens and CVS have apps with coupons as well.
eCoupons can be loaded right to your store loyalty cards. Check out the website of a favorite grocery store to see if they have electronic coupons. H-E-B has digital coupons you can redeem in-store. Select the coupons either from the H-E-B website or the H-E-B app.
If you can’t find coupons, then at least try shopping through a cash back site like Ebates. You get a percent back on your purchases and they list some coupons on their site as well.
You are on your way…
