RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - Traditionally, the Sunday paper has been the most popular place to find coupons, but that momentum is changing. RedPlum, SmartSource, General Mills, and Proctor and Gamble typically produce the paper's weekly inserts, but you don't have to buy a paper to get them. These inserts can be found online and offer exactly what comes in the paper, all you have to do is go their websites, click on the coupons you want and print them out.
This week at Food Lion, when you buy one box of Raisin Bran at $3.54, you'll get one free. Print two 75 cents off coupons from couponmom.com and you'll pay 27 cents for 2 boxes of cereal.
Just about every product out there has a website along with a facebook page. They both tend offer exclusive high dollar coupons.
Magazines have grown wise and thrown their hats into the coupon game. "Parents" and "Parenting Early Years" magazines regularly offer 10 to 20 coupons per issue, so do "Family Fun" and "Redbook." Even if you only clip a few, they more than make up for the few dollars spent on the magazine itself. But the best value lies between the pages of "All You." With a mission statement of enjoy life for less, this issue boasts over $82 worth of savings.
If you tend to shop at Kroger, which doubles coupons up to fifty cents - check out kroger.com and cellfire.com. After entering your Kroger card number, both sites let you choose from a list of coupons online that can be directly loaded to your card. They automatically deduct when you're at the register, plus you can use these on top of paper coupons for an even bigger discount.
