Favorite Coupon Sites

Coupons are a great tool to help you stick to your budget.  For most people, the newspaper is the go-to place to clip these money savers out; however, the computer is hot on the newspaper's heels.  There are plenty of sites where you can print out a coupon or two, but some offer more / better deals than others.  Here are the ones I have found to be most useful:

SmartSource - From the same people who bring you those lovely newspaper inserts, SmartSource has a solid variety of coupons from major name brands, usually around 100 coupons each week.  Some of these can even be loaded directly to your store savings card.  That's a great way to save some paper (and the cost of ink)! Like other coupon sites, you will have to install their software to print.  You can also use their iPad app, which can be a great time saver for some.

CoolSavings - This site essentially takes the same coupons as the better-known  What I like about CoolSavings, though, is the additional features the site has.  There is a Free Stuff section for samples and freebies.  The site also makes it easy to sort coupons and compare prices from various retailers.  You can even compare weekly grocery deals, plan your menu, and make your shopping list all in one place.

HotCouponWorld - This site pulls printable coupons from around the web.  It also provide matchups between coupons and various store sales to help you get the biggest bang for your buck.  The site also offers a coupon trading program for members and a messsage board with an active couponing community.  There's even the occasional contest or giveaway.

Coupon Divas - Coupon Divas pulls coupons from other sites into one place, but it's not their coupon collection that makes this site a winner.  Coupon Divas has an entire How-To section to help you become an expert couponer.  This section includes store-specific tips and coupon policies as well as general couponing advice.  The website also provides updates on non-coupon offers, from vacations to magazine subscriptions.
