When it comes to saving money, coupons are one of the first things we look for.
And if you’re like me, you probably do a desperate Internet search for coupons when you get to a checkout page – and of course you get the ones that have put the most into their searchability.
But here are 10 coupon sites that won’t necessarily be top of the searches, but are well worth bookmarking.
1. Bargain Jack
Bargain Jack has been going for nearly 10 years, and specializes in tech equipment and things for men and kids.
If you like getting paid for surveys, and are going to join only one site, I would recommend you choose Ipsos-iSay. Ipsos is the most fun and well-paying panel. Give it a try to see how you like it. It is free anyway!
You can search by category or by store, and you can sign up for daily alerts.
I must admit I found some out of date links on the site, and it seems it relies on user feedback to deal with these.
Still, worth looking at.
Ultimate coupons has a great website layout, allowing you to search from a big store search box at the top, scroll down the homepage to see the latest offers, or pick a store from the drop-down menu.
I like the way that it is not just coupons, but has short stories for each of the featured coupons on the homepage.
If you are shopping for a baby, then this is the website for you.
Lots of deals, and articles on all sorts of stuff.
It will even give you suggestions on what your kids will like the best.
A website that delivers exactly what it promises.
I hate shopping for bargains, only to get to the checkout and find that they bang on a large shipping charge.
Try Swagbucks, the famous rewards program that pays you for watching videos, taking surveys, shopping and more.
Buy through freeshipping.org and you know you won’t have this problem.
The Bargainist is another interesting website, with little stories next to the latest deals.
If you look down the right-hand side, you’ll find the money-saving tips and hot deals, and under that Amazon products sorted by discount.
If you shop on Amazon much, this is a really handy tool, though you should note that some of the more extreme discounts are for “used” items.
And totally unaffiliated with Target stores, according to the heading, but dedicated to pointing out all the coupons and deals that Target are running at any particular time.
With Dealio you can search on products or on stores, or simply browse the top coupons for the last few days.
It also has a toolbar that you can install in your browser, and this saves you having to go to the website every time.
A no-nonsense coupon site, but attractively laid out.
It allows you to print out physical coupons for groceries, shop online, and simply browse to see what you might want to buy at a discount.
This website starts with clickable links to a number of stores.
It boasts more than 150,000 offers from nearly 55,000 stores, with an average saving of $21 at the time of writing.
When you click for a code, sometimes it will say no code is required.
You shop in the store and paste the code at checkout, or the code is applied automatically.
A comprehensive website, which will take your local grocery stores ads and match them up with coupons.
You can choose your state and your store, and it will show you what the weekly offers are, with links to print out coupons.
There is even a “plan mode” which allows you to highlight lines to help with your shopping list!
Time to become a bit more organized in your discount shopping.
Rather than leaving it until checkout, as I used to, plan ahead and see which one of these sites gives you the best deal.
Better yet, use of of these coupon apps to make it easier and faster to save money when shopping.
