Whether you’re a couponing novice or a clipping queen, there may be money-saving opportunities lurking in places you’ve never considered. Coupons aren’t restricted to the Sunday paper (Though that's always a good starting place!). Here are some unusual places to look for coupons.
On Packaging - If you’re looking for more coupons, just head to your kitchen. Soup cans, cereal boxes and frozen foods often have money saving discounts right on the packaging. The good thing about these coupons is that usually the expiration dates are extended, giving you more time to cash in on a good deal.
Inside Magazines - Plenty of coupons are likely hiding in between the articles and recipes of your favorite periodicals. The next time you’re flipping through the pages of magazines like “Every Day with Rachael Ray” or “Redbook” keep an eye out for coupons you can clip. And the more coupons you use the more you can justify paying for that subscription.
The Coffee Shop - Nothing goes together quite like a cup of coffee and the Sunday paper. But usually the coupons inside the Sunday paper get left behind. Put them to good use before someone tosses them out.
Junk Mail - Turns out, junk mail isn’t completely worthless. Don’t just toss it into the recycle bin. If you take a few minutes to flip through it you may discover some interesting and useful coupons for restaurants, services or groceries.
Company Newsletters - You know all those pesky emails from companies that you usually just delete without reading? You may actually want to take a peek inside. Brands like Arm & Hammer, Chinet and Maggie Moo’s love sending out savings to those who sign up for their e-newsletters. Stores including Bed Bath & Beyond, The Home Depot, and Overtock.com also regularly deliver exclusive coupons to subscribers’ in-boxes.
eBay - You have shopped on eBay for ink cartridges or Coach handbags, but did you know you can also buy coupons on eBay? Pick up coupons for your favorite restaurants or preferred products. And the best part is that they’ve already been clipped for you.
