To go along with Jen’s recent post of free eCoupon sites, I decided to put together a list of what I consider to be the best printable coupon sites. In short, you can go to any of the sites below, select the coupons you want, and print them out right at home! Many of these coupons can be printed once per computer, so if you have access to a computer & printer at home, work, and/or school…well, you get the idea
One small tip: if you’re having trouble installing any of the printing software for the couple of sites that require it, you might want to make sure you’re using Internet Explorer and that you have any ad-blocking software turned off. I use Firefox for my normal web-surfing, but sometimes it has trouble printing the coupons.
Coupons.com – Hands down the #1 leader in printable coupons. Their selection is gigantic and they update coupons at least once a month. I routinely print a dozen or two coupons from them every month and regularly save $20 or more.
Box Tops 4 Education – Their selection is sparse, but they make up for this slight drawback by having some that no other site has.
Professor Red Plum has all sorts of coupons, but I find that their best area is in toiletries and body products. They always seem to have coupons for contact solution, shampoo, etc. On top of that, they’ve got some unique grocery coupons that you won’t find elsewhere, so definitely add this site to your weekly coupon digest.
Eat Better America – While easily having the smallest selection of any of the sites on this list, they tend to be unique and worth just a little bit more than other coupons, so it’s worth taking a peek at Eat Better America every week. Plus, they have an offer for a free $10 Coupon Booklet!
Valpak – I actually discovered this site while doing research for this post. I’d always loved getting Valpak coupons in the mail, but I had no idea you could print them from your computer! Just like their mailed counterparts, most of these coupons are for local stores and services instead of for food and groceries. The great part about their site is that no printing software is needed. Just select the coupon, hit print, and it’ll send straight to your printer.
SmartSource – I love Smart Source because it’s so clean and easy to use (once you’ve installed their printing program, which you only have to do the very first time.) They were cool enough to partner with me a while back and help put together a clean page of coupons that refresh bi-monthly.
Shortcuts – And last but not least, a site that doesn’t let you print coupons! Haha, I’m not sure what’s up with Shortcuts, but about two weeks ago they stopped allowing their coupons to be printed. I haven’t the slightest if they’re going to bring the feature back or not, but it’s worth keeping an eye on just in case they do.
So do you have any success stories with using printable coupons? Let us know in the comments!
