I get asked all the time – where can I get coupons? There are common places such as your newspaper and print, but did you know you can get them mailed to you? There are many ways you can get those coveted manufacturer coupons in the mail.
Let’s be honest here. The easiest way for you to get coupons is in your Sunday newspaper. It shows up in your driveway with inserts inside, just waiting to be clipped.
Alternatively, you can use online sites to print them as well. You can locate them on coupon sites like Coupons.com, SmartSource, and RedPlum. You can also use the Coupon Database to access printable coupons.
However, what if you could just walk to your mailbox and have coupons waiting for you? Would you say SIGN ME UP?
Below, I share some of my favorite tips to help you get coupons mailed to you at your home. Sometimes, these are even better than those you can receive online or in your newspaper.
HOW TO GET COUPONS MAILED TO YOU
1. E-mail to praise or complain
E-mailing companies is the easiest way to get coupons in the mail. Take the time to email a company or manufacturer and tell them what you love about their product. They will often thank you for your comments by sending you a coupon.
You can also receive them if you email with an issue or concern. Perhaps your product was not fresh or did not taste as good as you wanted it to. Email the company to tell them about it. They want to make it right, and the easiest way to do that is with a coupon for a free item.
Before you just jump in and start randomly emailing people, make sure you read my post on How to Email Companies for Coupons. It will help you make sure you do it correctly, which may result in getting the results you want!
2. Sign up for newsletters
Take time to sign up for lots of newsletters! Companies and retailers will often email coupons as part of the weekly or monthly email.
Bonus tip: Go through your home and make a note of all of the products you use. Then, go to each of those websites and sign up to receive their newsletter.
3. Get on birthday lists
Watch your mailbox fill up with coupons in the month leading up to your birthday! Make sure you check out my list of more than 100 birthday freebies and take advantage of them as well.
4. Follow companies on Social Media
Social media is an excellent way for brands to share coupons and samples with consumers. Use the list you created in Step 2 above and follow them on social media.
Bonus tip! To quickly find the pages you follow, check the PAGES feed on Facebook. From the side menu, scroll down Explore. Expand the menu and find Pages Feed. You’ll now see posts from the recent pages you have followed.
And of course, you should join our Facebook group – so you don’t miss a thing!
5. Request free samples
When companies have new products they want you to try, they will often offer free samples. These sample boxes often include a high-value coupon tucked inside as well! Check out MySavings or PinchMe to find the most recent free sample offers currently available.
That’s it! A few simple things you can do so that the coupons start to show up in your mailbox.
