Layer 2.1 - Printable Internet Coupons

HOW TO DO IT: The layout of LAYERS

As discussed below, the key to shopping for free (or for very little, or sometimes less than free!) is stacking Layers of savings, atop each other.  I'll try not to make this too complicated (which can sometimes be a challenge for me :-)... I've realized it will require a separate blog entry for each Layer, however.

And for some, a separate entry for each "sub-Layer"! I hope you're able to follow well; the template/formatting of this site might need some tweaking.

Stack of Savings Stuff:
LAYER #1: Weekly Store Sales
LAYER #2: Manufacturer's Coupons

LAYER #2.1 ~ Printable Internet Coupons

You may think that stores are reluctant to accept Printed Internet Coupons, because of potential fraud.  This info is out of date!

With a couple of exceptions, all major stores DO accept coupons printed from certain websites.  To protect against fraud, you're required to install a printer app (for each of these websites) on your computer; these installations are safe and harmless.  Each printed Coupon will contain a unique bar code, for your use.

The following are the major websites from which you can print reliable coupons, for use at the store.  You will need to install each website's printer app; As mentioned above, that's a quick and painless process.

Please use my specific referral links (below, or in the left sidebar), when printing your coupons from these major sites - It doesn't affect your Coupon, but I will earn referral credit for each one printed.

This is the gold standard of reliable internet coupon sites.  (I actually print coupons through Swagbucks, to optimize my earnings - but Swagbucks is a topic for another time/blog entry!)

- RedPlum

- SmartSource

- Campbell's Kitchen  (contains v8 coupons, too)

- Post-It Coupons  (contains 3M product coupons) - currently empty

- The Coupon Book - currently empty

- Direct-Linked Coupons
Some manufacturers don't want their coupons listed in the general collection of coupons, on those sites.  They still use those sites to serve up their coupon(s), but direct link them - either from their company website, their company Facebook Page, or perhaps from an e-mail/newsletter that they send out.

When is used for this, it's called "Bricks" []. Here is a solid list of Bricks Coupons; those links will take you to the company website or FB Page, from which you can obtain the coupon link.

The most comprehensive listing of Printable Coupons (including the Direct-Linked ones) is provided by Krazy Coupon Lady:

Rachel E. Holland also provides a regular Round-Up of printable coupons.


A special note:

Please use my referral link, whenever you visit (Or use someone else's; Never go directly to's site! :-)
