How to Save More with Grocery Coupons


TGS_WelcomeSeries_Header#2_R2

If you were walking down the street and saw a $50 bill lying there, would you just walk right past it? Not unless it was on fire—and even then it might be a tempting risk. Not many people would pass up free money. Now imagine finding that $50 every week for a year—and it’s completely flame-retardant. That’s exactly how much using coupons can save the average family of four every week. And the best news: It’s easier to use coupons today than ever before.

The average American family can save $50 on their weekly grocery bill by using coupons

There’s no need to wait for the Sunday newspaper. You can visit Coupons.com 24/7 to find hundreds of offers for the brands you love, to save on everything from Pampers to Cheerios to Barilla pasta, and so much more. Think about this—if you typically buy one box of cereal a week and you start using a “$1 off” coupon each time, you’ll have an extra $52 in your pocket at the end of the year, and that’s just for one item.

Plus, coupons aren’t just for groceries anymore.

You can find money-saving offers for everything from baby food to pet supplies, medications, personal care items, cleaning products, office supplies and laundry detergents. And digital coupons mean less waste. With the ability to pick and choose the coupons you like online, you can print out just what you’ll use and leave the rest. This means less clipping and cutting (your hands will thank you), less paper waste, and fewer coupons in your organizer that just sit there while the expiration date drifts on by.

Did you know? When an item is on sale in the store but isn’t on the shelf, you can ask for a rain check. If the store obliges, you’ll get the sale price next time you shop, and you can use a pertinent coupon to maximize your savings.
