Printing coupons online can save significant money on your grocery bill. When economic times are difficult, the online coupon printing industry booms with more choices than ever. As long as you avoid fake coupons, this is an easy way to save money on your grocery, both during good times and bad.
Access your local grocery store website. Usually, there is an area on the site to print coupons. Print manufacturer coupons are often available as well as in-store coupons. For example, you can print a coupon on one store's website and use it at another store as long as it says "MANUFACTURER COUPON." Printing online gives you the assurance that you are getting legitimate coupons, nothing fraudulent.
Go to manufacturer websites to print those coupons as well. If no provision exists to print, perhaps you can request them via mail.
Avoid fraudulent print coupon websites. You will end up wasting a lot of time at checkout when passing a fake coupon. Use only reputable coupons from manufacturer or grocery store websites. Many reputable coupon distributor sites exist such as couponsinc.com and coolsavings.com. Many others are fake. For example, an emailed grocery coupon is always fake because coupons for grocery store items cannot be emailed. Legitimate grocery item coupons go directly to the printer; therefore, you will never see one on your computer screen. It is impossible to save legitimate grocery item coupons to a file for later alteration.
Avoid stores that refuse Internet coupons, because you will be wasting considerable money unless they offer very deep discounts, such as bulk sellers like Costco and Sam's Club. Many stores do accept Internet coupons, so check your grocery store's policy.
Avoid photocopying coupons you received from print coupon websites. Coupon fraud is illegal, including photocopying. Legal, photocopied coupons contain unique identifiers that prevent you from using them twice.
