Best Couponing Hacks - Our List Of Best Coupon Tips

Couponing is a great way to save money and with our best couponing hacks you can get the best deals and use coupons the right way!

Best Couponing Hacks: Mailers and Newspapers

This method of couponing is the most traditional and probably the most commonly known.  One of the best ways to coupon is to look for newspaper and mail deals and savings and cut them out!  Cut them out, keep them on hand and then when you need them, they'll be there.  Keep a mental or physical list of where to shop based on the coupons you receive. 

You may need to shop around or change your shopping patterns based on the coupons you find.  The best deal may not be at your favorite grocery store that week.  However, putting a bit more effort into thoughtful shopping could save you big bucks in the end.

Keylock Storage gave two great bits of advice on couponing in an article about paying off debt.  In it, Keylock said:

"Be sure not to fall into the trap of purchasing things you don't need just in order to use a coupon.  This will not save you money in the end.  For instance, many name brand products at the grocery store offer coupons while the store brand still ends up being cheaper even with the coupon applied to the brand name item.  Carefully weigh your options.

Pro Tip:  Designate a coin purse, a section of your wallet or even just use a ziplock bag to keep all your coupons in.  Use something that is easy to take along with you wherever you go.  That way, when you need the coupon, it's ready and available!"

Best Couponing Hacks: Online

In this day and age, everything has moved online and couponing is no exception.  What does this mean to the couponer?  More couponing opportunities!  We've assembled a list below of the best places to go online for all things couponing:

Keylock wrote about taking surveys to earn money in one of its recent articles.  Of this, Keylock said: 

"Another great way to make money is to do it by taking surveys.  Companies and marketers out there all need data and one way they collect this data is by paying people to take surveys.  You can do this little by little and the small amounts of money can really add up!  Some legitimate survey sites and apps include:
