The average American spends over $2500 on groceries each year. And those with tight budgets use coupons to reduce their grocery bills. Not only are there coupons for food, but there also coupons for clothing, restaurants and even lawn care. Here's how to find coupons and get them in the mail.
To get grocery coupons, sign up at SmartSource.com and RedPlum.com. These two websites feature discounts on well-known food brands, such as Kraft, Nabisco and Oscar-Mayer.
Sign up for the Borders Rewards Club for book coupons. As a Borders Rewards member, not only will you get a 5 percent credit on all your purchases, but you will also get coupons of up to 40 percent via email.
For clothing coupons, put yourself on the mailing list of your favorite clothing stores. Not only do many stores email coupons to you, but they also send freebies and sweepstakes opportunities.
To get coupons for services, such as dentistry or lawn care, register for ValPak.com. ValPak lists coupons for services and goods in your area.
Never buy online without first searching for a coupon code. To find online coupon codes, type the name of company and "coupon" into a Google search bar.
Furthermore, check out RetailMeNot.com; it features coupon codes from many online retailers.
Trade coupons with your friends. You may have a coupon that they need, and they may a coupon that you need. If you need a coupon immediately, call the company and ask for one.
