Top 5 Coupon Sites

With the economy on the rocks, gas prices steadily rising, and food prices souring, there’s no reason not to use coupons to their full advantage. Yes, it might be a bit of extra work, but most diligent coupon clippers can save 10-40% on their monthly shopping, with ease.

One of the best ways to save money on normal, everyday expenses is by clipping coupons from your local circulars and newspapers, but today I’d like to shift gears a bit and talk about my five favorite online coupon sites, which I use every month to save money across the board.

  1. Retailmenot

    This website has a coupon code for everything. Simply enter your search term and you’ll find a list of available coupons, each with their own success rating and links to help you get to the final product page. Though many Retailmenot coupons are expired, I always check here before moving on to other websites.

  2. Groupon

    In case you haven’t heard of Groupon, it’s a local daily deals website and email newsletter that hooks you up with incredible deals, many at least 50% off normal retail, every single day. The best part about Groupon is that the deals come straight to your inbox, and they have a mobile app too.

  3. LivingSocial

    This is another daily deals website that features even more 50% off coupons for things like spa treatments, sporting events, and movie tickets. If it’s not on Groupon, it might be here!

  4. Coupons.com

    Granted, this site has some spammy offers, but it’s also very thorough, and let’s face it, the name is in the URL! If you’re struggling to find savings on big box store items, Coupon.com is a great place to check.

  5. SmartSource.com

    These guys have great deals on grocery store items, so make sure to visit and print out as many coupons as you can before hitting the grocery store aisles. If you combine these deals with some regular coupons, you’ll save quite a bit on your normal daily/weekly/monthly shopping sprees.

Beyond these five, you can also find websites that sell clipped coupons, which also work great for grocery days. Another option is to sign up for newsletters and reward programs so that you can get deals via email, and/or earn points back on purchases. The key to catching coupons really isn’t a secret, you just have to keep your eyes open for them.
