To print or not to print? Couponing in the digital age has made things faster and more streamlined. On the flip side, sometimes the amount of available printable coupons is daunting if you’re new on the scene. A main rule of thumb: only print when it’s hot or when it’s for a product you know you’ll use.

Hot coupons are high in value and usually have a limited number of prints. These often make for super cheap or free items at the store, especially stacked with promotions and rewards (i.e. Catalinas, Register Rewards, ExtraBucks, or +Up Rewards). We’ll alert you on the KCL website when new ones come out and if it’s one you should print right away.

Every family has brands and products they buy on a frequent basis. When a coupon comes up for one of these, print it off. Almost all coupons have a set number of prints, so you’ll want to snag these when they first appear. Remember, you don’t have to use every coupon you print out. Print out coupons in hopes that a great sale will come along to pair it with. If you don’t get a chance to use it this time, no worries! Coupons often reset within a few days or at the beginning of a new month.

    I have questions regarding the wording on coupons. Pepsi for Example says, purchase 2-litre Pepsi Next get $off. But yet I can use this for a regular 2-litre Pepsi. ??? or Can I not.??? When do you have to follow the wording word for word?

      You do have to follow the coupon to the letter, so unless it specifies the flavor or says “any flavor”, you’ll have to go with what it says.

    Joanne, please know I’m not taking anything away from what kcl said but just as a personal opinion I don’t buy inserts or individual Q’s because that takes me too close to that grey line of legal/illegal for my comfort zone. I have found that trading is a good option. Also I buy a large city newspaper with some of those better Q’s in them at my local sheetz. Hope I don’t start a debate war here. Just giving my personal opinion.

      No– of course you can vary from what we say here in matters like this. Some people are uncomfortable swapping coupons or buying whole inserts, and that’s fine. It is one of the grey-ish areas of couponing, but sometimes it may be an option for those who don’t have a newspaper or a newspaper that carries coupons, so they buy the inserts instead of the paper for the inserts.

    I have an Idea that I think would make your site head and shoulders above the rest of the coupon sites. If you could offer members an electronic account through which they could clip and store coupons electronically up until their expiration dates instead of having to print them when they clip them, it would be a genuine plus. That way, if members are looking to pair a coupon up with a sale and the sale doesn’t occur before the coupon expires, they won’t have wasted the time, ink, paper and wear and tear on their printer to print coupons they ended up not using. On the other hand, if there is a sale before the coupon expires, they can print it and use it. Just a thought.

      IPs are meant to be printed out, not to be converted to digital image and stored. Doesn’t that violate the terms of most IPs? Even if KCL has the capability to offer the service, I can only imagine the complain they’ll for sure receive from people having problem printing.

      I wish we could do that– it would be really nice! But unfortunately, we don’t have control over that :(

    Yes, you can buy whole inserts at sites like The Coupon Clippers or Coupon and Things by Dede. You may want to weigh the cost/ benefit ratio– how many coupons you’re getting in your newspaper compared to what you’d gain by ordering them. You’ll want to figure in the mail costs and mail wait time. If you are on the lookout for specific coupons, you may consider swapping with friends, neighbors, or fellow Krazy Couponers via our Facebook page :)
