There are discounts, coupons, and promo codes for just about any kind of product you can think about. From groceries to electronics, from clothes to stationery, you name it there is a coupon or discount code for it. This is true both online and offline. Still, not everyone knows just where to find them. Below, I highlight some great places to find promo codes, discounts, and coupons both online and offline.
Three of the Best Places to Find Coupons Offline
Before everything became so digital, coupons were the domains of grocery and convenience stores nationwide. In those times coupons were found in catalogs, magazines, and local newspapers. Even in today’s highly technological age, that is still where they can be found. Here’s how to make them work for you.
Catalogs are still printed and mailed to subscribers even in the age of the digital mailing list. These catalogs may be specific to certain categories of products such as groceries bought from a popular store chain (like a Walmart for example) or clothing from a particular order in brand or store. Inside the catalogs, discount coupons that are valid for a limited time only can be cut from the catalog and applied to the product of interest at the point of ordering or making a purchase.
Similar to catalogs, niche magazines will sometimes have promo codes or discounts available for a limited time only applicable to products advertised in the magazine. Depending on the nature of the product on offer, these discounts become redeemable through either mailing in an order, or through a website, after which the product is shipped to the purchaser. Of course, in some cases, there are discounts applicable to a subscription of the very magazine itself. This is a popular practice in highly successful commercial magazines.
The local newspapers is also a great place to find coupons or promo codes that are redeemable inside local franchises of national chains. Sometimes there are discounts available for the local convenience store as well. In any case, coupons, promo codes, and other redeemable discounts are often found in a dedicated section of the newspaper in much the similar way that the classifieds are. These codes can be cut from the same and either be taken to the store for redemption, or mailed in, depending on the nature of the product and how it is to be consumed. Grocery coupons in the local newspapers, for example, will in most cases, be redeemable in the local grocery store.
2 Great Places to Find Discounts, Promo Codes, and Coupons Online
One doesn’t have to look much farther than a web search to find a bunch of coupon promo codes laying around. Such codes are usually redeemable online through visiting the portal housing the product or service that the discounts may be relevant to. Some coupons can be found directly on the websites of the service or product provider, or they may be housed on third-party sites through whom very specific, available nowhere else discounts are offered. As such, where you find discount codes may depend on what sort of items you are shopping for. Here are a few ideas for finding coupons for items you’re looking to purchase.
– General web searches using popular search engines
An easy way to find your preferred bargain coupon online is to first visit your favorite search engines (you may try a few of the popular ones) and then enter the kind of item you may be looking for, along with words like ‘coupons,’ ‘promo codes,’ and ‘discounts’ as a part of the keyword phrase. Be sure to search for one item at a time along with these words. So, for example, if you are searching for promo codes for some of the latest items in women’s fashion, then your search query could read ‘women’s fashions coupons online.’
– Coupon targeted websites
Luckily, there are already lots of websites dedicated solely to finding the latest coupon on just about every product or service imaginable. One can opt to search these websites, or browse them by category, to find discounts on products and services you may be looking for. This is a welcomed alternative to general web searches. Coupon sites to consider include www.coupons.com.
