Are you devoted to a particular product or brand? Check the company's website to see if they offer a free printed newsletter or email newsletter. Subscribers are often rewarded with special coupons and promotions.

Don't stop with national companies - what stores and restaurants do you frequent close to home? Check their websites to see if they have an email newsletter and sign up for it. Not only are you likely to get coupons, you will also get notice of sales, giveaways, contests and special events.

Buy an Extra Paper to Get More Coupon Inserts

There's no rule that says you can only buy one newspaper. When you discover a good coupon inside, pick up an extra one (or five). Some stores discount their unsold Sunday papers on Monday, so you will get those extra coupons for even less money out of pocket.

Collect Unwanted Newspaper Coupon Inserts

You'll notice that people often leave unwanted portions of their newspapers behind at coffee shops, restaurants, bus stops, and anywhere there is a waiting room. Keep your eyes open for the opportunity to take these home. You could even put out the word to friends and family who may work in such establishments to collect them for you.

Have Coupons Sent to Your Cell Phone Via Apps

Download a few coupon apps and you will have a choice of coupons to use on the go. You won't need scissors or a coupon organizer with this method!

Call Companies to Get Coupons

Take a look at your favorite products and find the toll-free number listed on the label. Give them a call and ask if they have any coupons that they can send you. Likewise, note their website and see if they have printable coupons, a loyalty app, or an email newsletter.

Get Electronic Coupons

You can load coupons onto your grocery store rewards cards, and the savings will come off automatically when they scan your card at the register. This is another good way to get coupon savings even if you want to avoid using, storing and sorting paper coupons.

Snag More Digital Coupons

New printable coupons sites keep popping up. You're leaving money on the table if you don't browse them for savings on groceries and household goods. Make sure you're not missing any opportunities to print coupons.

Think Outside the Box

Coupons are all over the place, you just have to look for them. Have you just been stuffing receipts and ticket stubs into your purse or wallet? Flip them over and you may discover coupons for the very items and entertainment you have just bought.
