9 Sources for Grocery Coupons

I’m getting back into the coupon game after a bout of deals fatigue. That means I’m going to need some coupons!

I’ve been buying the Sunday newspaper again, scouting the grocery store for coupons, and saving the ones that come in the mail.

I’ve been amazed, yet again, at how many opportunities for grocery coupons there are out there. Here are 9 places to find coupons, if you’re looking to get started:

  • Sunday Newspaper 1 of 9
    Sunday Newspaper
    This is the most common place to find manufacturer's coupons. The magazine-style inserts come in the Sunday paper almost every week. You can buy a Sunday paper at Dollar Tree all week, choose a discount newspaper subscription or check with your local paper for other options. I have a "shopper guide" delivered every Sunday for free, including store ads and coupon inserts.

    In the Mail
    Don't forget to go through your junk mail — you'll find restaurant coupons, grocery coupons, and more savings. My favorite grocery store sends coupon packets and magazines all the time — meant just for me, based on the purchases I make with my loyalty card. The savings can really add up, so be sure you aren't tossing it!

  • Magazines 7 of 9

    You'll find coupons throughout some of your favorite magazines. My favorite? Buy All You magazine — it is chock full of coupons every single month! (And, guess who's on page 19 of this month's issue...)

  • Clipping Services 8 of 9
    Clipping Services
    It's a bit of a gray area, but coupon clipping services will allow you to select the coupons you want, while someone else does all the hard work.

    Just like clipping services, many ebay sellers offer coupon lots or even specific coupons. That feels a little more like a coupon purchase to me, though they'll state you are bidding on their time and effort not the coupons themselves.
