Here is a list of coupon source available to Canadians
- Coupon inserts in local papers. RedPlum, Unilever and Smart Source all put out coupons several times a year. I don’t get the paper they come in but I have people who give them to me. I usually end up with about 2 or 3 of each inserts. It never hurts to ask a few friends/relatives to hold it for you if they don’t plan to use it.
- My favourite money saver is the Check Out 51 app. It doubles with paper coupons and is usually a nice high value. You get a cheque in the mail once you have at least $20.00 in your ‘account’. Check out my review here. I saved just over $130.00 in one year!
- Another coupon app is SnapSaves. It is very similar to to above, they just seem to time their offers differently.
- A new coupon app has arrived on the scene, Zweet! I hadn’t shared when they first launched as they had some bugs to work out but now they are great! Lots of fresh produce!
- In store tear pads. My Walmart doesn’t have them but the Save On Foods I work next to does. I go in there to grab items on my lunch break and will often stumble upon tear pads. I grab 2 or 3 (just don’t take them all!) if they are one I can use or share.
- Coupon websites. Some sites let you print coupons and others mail them to you. Here is a list to get you started.
- Word of mouth. I am always amazed that by letting people know I coupon how often they pass coupons on to me.
- Facebook. If you have a favourite brand or item follow their Facebook page, they will often give out coupons. Companies like Maple Leaf Foods and 0-9 offer coupons to Facebook fans.
- Coupon Chains. I like the idea of coupon chains but I have had no luck with them myself. I have been part of a nationwide one and tried to start up one locally but have found the ‘fall apart’ very easily. If you are thinking of doing one maybe only have friends involved so it is easier to track down where things are at.
