Coupon Tips by Store

Ever wonder how extreme couponers do it?

You can find most store coupons in your local newspapers in the store’s ads. Some stores give you coupons with your receipt, like Kroger and Target. Manufacturer’s coupons are exactly that from the manufacturer. Most will be found as newspaper inserts. Smart Source, Red Plum and Proctor & Gamble are a few. You can also contact manufacturers directly for coupons. Manufacturer’s coupons can also be found directly on the product to be used when you purchase it.
