Finding Coupons…Where to Find those Canadian Coupons to help build your stockpile!
So you’ve decided to start couponing! Using coupons is a great way to save money in the budget without having to compromise your quality of life. As the activity of couponing increases in popularity, so do the outlets from which you can acquire these little money saving pieces of paper!
No matter your location, there are a wide variety of methods you can employ to build your coupon collection!
COUPONS BY MAIL:There are several websites you can visit that offer a rotating variety of free coupons you can order to be delivered to your home! Besides the obvious convenience of this service, this is also a great option since some retailers do not accept printable coupons.
*TIP*-Follow Save Big, Live Better! on Facebook to receive real time updates when new coupons become available!
PRINTABLE COUPONS:The availability of free online printable coupons is growing as the convenience of being able to instantly print savings in your own home is undeniable. So much so that retailers are beginning to see the opportunities for them in accepting printable coupons, and are adjusting their coupon acceptance policies as a result!
You can find free printable coupons on the Smartsource Printable Coupons page on Save Big Live Better, as well as a listing of printable coupons available from all over the internet on the Coupons page!
*TIP*-Retailers that accept printable coupons will always accept them in black & white, so save yourself the cost of colour ink and keep it simple!
COUPONS IN STORE:One of the more obvious places to collect coupons is right at your local grocery store! You can find what are called “tear pads” on the shelves of your local retailer, typically placed adjacent to the particular product the coupon applies to.
Another type to keep your eye out for are coupons found on product packaging! If you can purchase an item on sale (and with a coupon!) that also provides you with a new coupon then you can really maximize your savings!
Lastly, just ask! You’d be surprised the savings you can acquire by simply asking at sample stands and your grocer’s customer service desk if they have any coupons for you:)

NEWSPAPER INSERTS:You’re local paper is a great resource for coupon savings! Newspaper inserts from Smartsource, Brandsaver and RedPlum can be found throughout the year in your local paper, frequently a free one!
Smartsource and Redplum can be found about every 3 weeks, where Brandsaver is less frequent (about 6-8 times a year).
*TIP*-If you are ever looking for multiples of an insert, ask your neighbours if they use coupons so you may be able to have theirs, or contact your local distribution centre after you receive the paper and see if they have any extra.
DIRECT FROM THE COMPANY: Contact your favourite companies, share with them why you enjoy their product over the competition, and ask if they have any coupons they may be able to send you. The worst thing they can say is no, and most will send you high value coupons you wont find anywhere else!
Utilize these resources and I guarantee you your collection of coupons will grow in no time at all, making you ready to save when that perfect sale comes along!
Finding Canadian Coupons is as easy as it seems and so are the savings.
