10 Ways To Find Easy-To-Use and Useful Coupons

find useful coupons

If you’ve ever been stuck behind a couponer in line at the grocery store, you’ve probably found yourself wondering how anyone can find the time to source out all those coupons. You’ve probably thought to yourself how nice it might be to save a huge chunk on your grocery bill, if only you could find the time to get really into it. They call it extreme couponing for a reason: it seems to take an extreme amount of time and effort to get huge discounts. Shouldn't it be easier to find useful coupons?

Luckily, there is an easier way. Sure, some extreme couponers take it to the next level saving upwards of 90% on their grocery bill, but you can still achieve great savings with minimal effort. You just have to know where to find the easy coupons. So, here is a list of ten places to find easy to use coupons:


Save.ca’s coupon section is populated with current, valid coupons in your area. The site uses your location services to detect where you are, and then delivers personalized coupons. You can “clip” each coupon you want, then select, “get coupons”. Your browser will download a PDF that will begin printing when it is opened. Voila! In as little as 5 minutes, you have your coupons.

Smart Canucks

Smart Canucks is a forum for Canadians to discuss and share savings, coupons, freebies and giveaways. Like Save.ca, the Smart Canucks site has a coupon section that you can use to clip the many coupons you find for items you might buy regularly. It’s a very similar system, where you select all the coupons you want, then download the PDF to print. It’s very simple and takes as much time as it requires to go through the coupons available.


Another choose, click, and print system, Savealoonie.ca will supplement the coupons you’ve already found on the other two websites. Just choose and click print!


Walmart offers its own coupon section and the savings are often quite significant. It’s as easy as clicking print right from the website.

Your grocery store’s website

Most grocery stores have a coupon section on their website. Just search Google for your grocery store of choice, visit the site, and look for “coupons”, “deals” or “specials”. In those sections, you’re bound to find some coupons that you can clip and print right there from the website.

Your local grocery store’s electronic newsletter

There aren’t many grocery stores that don’t offer a newsletter of some sort. Just sign up with your email address and coupons will be sent to your inbox.

In-store coupon boards

Your favourite grocery store probably has in-store coupons available, either on a board at the entrance to the store or along the aisles where the product is located.

Newspapers and flyers

Getting these things stuffed in your mailbox may seem like a royal pain in the neck, but if you just take a minute to browse them, you may find useful coupons. Just take a peek before you send them to the recycling bin.

Your local grocery store’s social media spaces

Quite often, grocery stores will tweet or post coupons to their Facebook pages. Make sure you’re following these pages to get up-to-date deals.

Your local grocery store’s app

Stores like Real Canadian Superstore and Shopper’s Drug Mart offer apps that include coupons that you can load onto your member card and have those savings apply when you swipe it at checkout.


Most of these coupon sources require very little time and effort, and though you may not see the sort of savings an extreme couponer does, at least you will be able to save a decent amount on your grocery bill.
