Finding Printable Coupons

July 25, 2007

computer printerI have always been an occasional coupon clipper, but it always seemed like taking the time to cut out each coupon was more trouble than it was worth. Fortunately, I have found a much easier way to get coupons, on the Internet. There are actually hundreds of websites with grocery coupons, including brand websites and newspaper websites.


I use because it has a bunch of coupons in one place. Every week before I go grocery shopping, we check this site to see if there are any coupons that I could use. Then you can just print them out and take them to the store. They scan at the register just like traditional paper coupons. I usually end up saving about $20 each trip. It is easier than clipping coupons from the Sunday inserts, and we have found that these coupons are often worth more than paper coupons.

Editor's Note: Thanks, Irene for posting something about this. created that site for us about a year ago and we stopped promoting it because some people complained that they weren't able to redeem the coupons. It's wonderful to hear from someone who is having success with it. Has anyone used our coupon page and been able to redeem the coupons? Please post your experiences below.

I highly recommend
The ladies there are full of fantastic information on hard core bargain hunting and coupon use. There are links to the printable coupon sites (free of course) and the posters will often post about a deal and include a link to the printable coupon.


You can't help but be inspired once you start reading there!

You can use
I have used them for close to 7 years and they are good. You can even go into websites like Betty Crocker, Pillsbury some of them have their own coupons. Good Luck, Donna

I found the best website to date for free grocery coupons is This website is committed to helping people in need. They have information on food shelves and the overseas military coupon program. Both are great places to donate your excess coupons too. Plus this website is not littered with google advertisements like so many grocery coupon websites are.


I also like that I do not have to go to several coupon websites to get my coupons. has many coupon sources all under one hat. It makes it so much easier to get my coupons.

I remain confused. What good are coupons downloaded from the internet if the grocery stores won't accept them? All of the grocery stores around here that accept manufacturer's coupons from the Sunday paper have signs that say "We do not accept internet coupons".

Sorry to say Wal-Mart does not except Internet coupons anymore.

Personally I don't bother with printed coupons because you've not really saved any money once you factor in the cost of time, paper and ink to print them ...


About the only places that even accept them anymore where it might be worthwhile, because of large discounts, are from places like Penney's (as an example) that are printed from their own website and even then you need to read the fine print for 'exceptions/limitations' for usage :-(

Stores in my town used to accept them, then one by one, they stopped, including walmarts. Then about 2 weeks ago, walmarts started accepting them again. People were complaining to their management that their store policy states that they will accept internet coupons. So I guess they had a choice, change their policy or accept them.

It is all depending on the store where you live. Redner's will use them but only if they are at a reasonable price and not from a bad site. Good luck on your search also redner's and boyer's where I live give out coupons when you are finished shopping.


Thank God I have been able to save on good nights training pants and also pampers under jams too.

All your major grocery chains should have their coupon policy located on their websites. My suggestion would be to visit each website and read their policy first, then if it states that they accept all manufacturer's coupons, print off a copy and place it in your coupon organizer to show the manager at each store. At least this gives you something in hand to take your stand with. Walmart does accept coupons printed offline because it states so in their policy and I use them there every week.


If your grocery store doesn't accept internet coupons then I'd take the time to send the corporate office an email and let them hear your opinion. It never hurts to let yourself be heard! In these hard economic times the American families need every little bit of help they can get!

As far as saving money, I save TONS of money on internet coupons. I have a laser printer and get over 8,000 copies per toner cartridge.

For example, I had $5 off 3 items of Johnsonville products and a rebate for spend $10, get $5 back. This is all through the INTERNET ~ My mom, aunt and friends also got this deal. It will save you a lot of money if you plan accordingly.

That's great knowing how many copies the guest poster can make on a laser printer with one ink cartridge! I am jealous!

The laser printers that have all of the several capabilities that my current printer has cost a small fortune and the ink cartridges for them are far more expensive than what I pay now so in my case it would not be cost effective to replace ... Besides the ink would go bad before I could ever even make 8,000 copies ;-) But some day when this one breaks down I'll check in to them again :-)

I have come across only one store in my area that won't accept them. When I asked the cashier why not, she didn't know. I use them at Wal-Mart all the time and various other stores.

I work in a retail store, and the reason, as some have stated before that some stores do not accept the coupons from the internet is because it is difficult for the cashier to verify if they are fraudulant or not.

As for thriftyboo's comment:

"I know some stores refuse to accept internet coupons as there are so many fraudulent coupons circulating. I would ask for the store manager and tell him/her to visit the site to verify the coupon's validity. If he/she refuses, speak to the owner or regional manager. (10/10/2006)
By thriftyboo"

this may not be a plausable solution. They won't have time to verify each coupon, and just because your "35 cents off on Green Giant Corn" coupon is valid, Joe Blow behind you might have a photocopy that is not. Also, often, this decision is made at the corporate level and managers are bound by this policy.

However, due to changing times, policies change often. Our store has never allowed us to accept internet coupons (and this was a corporate level policy), however, as of March 1 we will be doing so.

Keep checking back with any stores that do not currently accept them, as their policies too may change.

I have had problems redeeming coupons printed from the internet sites from time to time but it is seems it is more from who is checking out at the stores. I go to Krogers and Walmarts most of the time in Houston,Tx. and I get a checker from time to time that will say they do not take internet coupons but I can go in to the same stores at other times and the checker I am using takes them with no problem.

I have never seen any signs in any of the stores around here that say they do not take coupons printed from the internet.
You might check with the store manager as to why the have such a policy or check with the stores corporate office asking them the same question. Maybe if enough people complained they would consider changing their policy.

You might be able to check with the manufacturer on what stores and where to use your take their coupons or possibly getting them to redeem the coupons for you with a copy of your receipt on what you have purchased similar to a rebate offer.

You can also get coupons from companies most of the time just by calling them to talk to them about their product not just to complain about it but tell them how much you enjoy it and see if they have any promotions available on coupons, or what other types of promotions they have at the time.

You will really be surprised with what one simple telephone call will gain you from time to time and most products have a "1-800" number to contact them with any complaints, questions or comments.

Good luck on your coupon quest with money being as tight as it is now every little bit of savings you can get helps.

Google the following:

todays freebies

Click on the first listing. It should say "Welcome to Your Daily Freebies". (Don't ask me why, but you will not get the coupon listings by googling that.) Click on "Coupon Forum". There are 80 pages of coupons. Also, Pillsbury and Pepperidge Farm have coupons on their sites. Most cosmetics companies do, too.

Where is the easiest place to print online grocery and miscellaneous coupons without all the hassle of downloading too much. I have downloaded some sites and still nothing prints and its not my printer. Please help.

This site below has all the big 3 coupon sites for printing all at one location.

All the coupon printing sites and even the coupons you get from the various manufacturer's websites now use a coupon printer of some kind that you need to download before you print coupons because there was so much fraud in the early days of online coupon printing. There are help sections to help you troubleshoot if you are having trouble printing.

Here are the help pages for the big 3:!PAGETYPE

If you dont want to mess around with the coupon printers there are sites online where you can load e-coupons onto certain grocery stores customer loyalty cards so there is no printing or clipping involved.

There is also a list of bricks coupons at the link below. If you click on a link that takes you to the page for printing you can click the 'help' link at the bottom right corner and they will mail you the coupon if you are having trouble printing.

If all that fails you can buy coupons from ebay or other sites like:

or trade coupons at various sites including right here at Thrifty Fun:

You can get some coupon books mailed to you from the following links:

(remove the space before the "com" ...having trouble posting the link without it breaking)

Two good sites for all things "couponing":

Good luck to you!

Here is the one I get really good money off coupons from, each month:

You will get the chance to print a couple of coupons on most of them (by going back to coupons after printing those you have picked), but you will only be allowed a couple, and most of them, I find, are things that we use or want to try.
