Often cereal will have coupons on the back for fresh fruit, milk, yogurt or other breakfast friendly foods. Those are coupons that are stuck on the product. You can peel it off to use during that shopping trip, or wait to peel it off at home and use it later on a better sale.
You can also find hang-tag type coupons which are normally hanging from the neck of a product. I find hang-tag coupons on cleaning products, laundry detergent, pickle and jam jars etc. Signing up for brands newsletters or mailing lists are great ways to score coupons.
Many brands will send exclusive coupons to those that subscribe to their newsletter. Once you have a list I would go online and take an hour or so to visit all those brands Canadian websites and join their newsletter. This will allow you to be alerted to any coupons or samples should they be offered. You can also try emailing them using their contact form letting them know how much your family enjoys their product. Within your email, ask if they had a few money savings coupons they could pass along to you. Be sure to include your full mailing address in the body of your message as most companies will not even respond but will just mail out coupons.
Often when I fill out a form for a free sample, when it arrives it comes with a coupon. Sample boxes from companies like SampleSource often add coupons in the package with the samples too. Be sure to follow your favourite brands on their social media accounts as they generally will offer samples, freebies and coupons on their social channels to their followers.
When I first started couponing, trading coupons and coupon trains was huge. However, I found over the years the more couponers were out there, the harder it became to trade.
I am sure there still are groups and forums out there to trade coupons if you are interested in looking into it. By subscribing to our newsletter, you consent to receive new post updates and occasional promotional emails. This is a fantastic list of resources for couponing.
