Here’s a quick list of all of our favorite grocery and retail stores that take coupons — printable coupons, manufacturer coupons and more!
Note that the easiest way to start couponing is to download the KCL app and let our team find the coupons that match these stores’ sales so you don’t have to. Then we will tell you what to print or download and when to shop!
In the meantime, here’s what coupons you can expect to see at each of these stores.
Download the Target app to access Cartwheel offers — which are like store coupons — along with manufacturer coupons that may save you up to 50% on certain items.
Also, plan to take advantage of gift card offers like “Spend $30.00 on laundry detergent and get a $10.00 gift card.” These are advertised around the store, or you can find them inside the Target app when you tap “Wallet” then “Coupons.”
TIP: Watch for gift card deals specifically for diapers. When combined with a Target REDcard (for an additional 5% off) and manufacturer coupons for diapers, you can often get Huggies and Pampers at stock-up prices.
While Walmart has changed their policy regarding price matching over the years (from full-on competitor price matching to Savings Catcher to Walmart-Pay only), there are a few things that haven’t changed.
You can still use four manufacturer coupons with four items in a transaction, and you can still get overage, or money back if your coupon brings your balance below $0.
Every Walmart operates a little differently, and you may need to show the manager Walmart’s coupon policy, because they often don’t realize what’s possible with coupons.
One of the best ways to save money using coupons at Walmart is to download Ibotta and redeem cash-back rebate offers — Walmart has the most offers inside Ibotta.
TIP: If the item you’ve got coupons for is out of stock, just head over to Walmart’s customer service area and ask for a rain check. Walmart will issue and honor a rain check price — just bring your coupons back to the store once your item is in stock!
Go ahead and stack manufacturer coupons and Walgreens store coupons.
Sign up for Balance Rewards to earn points that translate into money you can spend in store. You’ll earn points with every purchase and when you buy specific promotional items like “Earn 1,000 Balance Rewards points when you buy 2 Pantene products.”
Also look for Register Rewards promotions like “Buy 1 Irish Spring Body Wash, Receive $1.00 Register Reward.” These are like store cash you can spend on your next transaction.
Find out how to coupon at Walgreens.
TIP: Here at KCL we see deals on household items like Tide laundry detergent the most frequently at Walgreens. In fact, when you have Tide coupons, you’ll be able to find a stock-up-worthy deal about twice a month.
Like Walgreens, CVS takes manufacturer and store coupons and has a loyalty program called ExtraCare.
You’ll earn 2% back on every purchase and receive personalized coupons you can access and print when you scan your ExtraCare card at the store’s Coupon Center. These are store coupons.
Stack manufacturer coupons with store coupons, and look for ExtraCare promotions like “Buy 2 Maybelline Mascara and receive $5.00 in ExtraBucks” to get the most coupon mileage at CVS.
Become a pro with these CVS couponing tips.
TIP: You can get free items at CVS anytime you have ExtraBucks to spend on equally-priced items. For example, with $5.00 in ExtraBucks, if you buy items that total $5.00, use your ExtraBucks to pay, and you just scored a freebie.
If you’re shopping Kroger or any of its family of stores (Fred Meyer, Fry’s, King Soopers, Harris Teeter, Ralphs and more), you must bring your coupons.
Plus, you can use up to five coupons in one transaction (assuming you’ve got one item per coupon you’d like to use).
TIP: Kroger Grocery Pickup takes coupons, unlike other grocery pickup services (Walmart). This means you can still coupon, even if you don’t go into the store!
6. Whole Foods
If you’re shopping at Whole Foods, download the BerryCart app to get rebate offers on organic food. Ibotta also has a few offers for organic items along with a ton of “Any Brand” offers you can use on Whole Foods brands.
One great thing about Whole Foods is you can get a 10% case discount when you buy items in bulk, and you can combine a case discount with a coupon!
TIP: If you’re an Amazon Prime member, look for yellow signs around Whole Foods — these signs indicate 10% savings on select sale items — available only for Prime members.
7. Dollar Tree
Believe it or not, Dollar Tree takes manufacturer coupons.
And the best part is, since everything is $1.00, if you have a manufacturer coupon for $1.00 off a certain product Dollar Tree sells, you can get the item for free!
TIP: Look for fresh items like bread and tortillas that you can toss into your freezer and save for later. Dollar stores carry brands of bread like Oroweat, which sell for over $2.00 per loaf at Walmart.
8. Family Dollar
However, sometimes there are store coupons in the app, and these look like “Save $5.00 [or $10.00 or $20.00] Storewide.” Definitely stack these with a manufacturer coupon.
Here are more details about saving money at Family Dollar.
TIP: Look for Ibotta offers you can redeem with your Family Dollar receipt. Ibotta has over 100 offers available for products at Family Dollar — everything from baby food to Bubly Sparkling Water to wine.
Whether you use hard copy coupons you’ve received in a physical mailer from Kohl’s or online promo codes, there are so many coupons to go around when it comes to Kohl’s.
And truth be told, there’s no reason to shop Kohl’s unless you have these coupons because there are so many offers all the time — paying full price at Kohl’s might kill your soul.
But when you stack up to four coupons or promo codes with Kohl’s Cash you’ve earned from previous shopping trips, it’s easy to get items like KitchenAid mixers, Instant Pots, outerwear, footwear and more for close to 80% off.
Find out all the secrets to shopping Kohl’s and saving as much money as possible.
TIP: Aim to spend $48, not $50, in order to get Kohl’s Cash. The promo will say you need to spend $50, but you will receive the Kohl’s Cash if you reach $48 after all applicable discounts have been applied.
10. Bath & Body Works
Items like hand soap, candles and Wallflower refills are easily 75-80% less when you stack a coupon or a promo code with a sale.
The best thing to do is give your physical address to a Bath & Body Works associate in order to get on the mailing list. A few times a year the stores mail coupons for a completely free item.
Learn other Bath & Body Works pro tips so you can get all the candles and save all the money.
TIP: Plan to stack coupons only on Black Friday. You can stack a %-off, dollar-off and a free-item coupon together in one transaction for Black Friday only.
11. DICK’S Sporting Goods
First order of business for finding DICK’S Sporting Goods coupons is to sign up for Scorecard Rewards, because you’ll get 3% cash back on every purchase (1 point for every $1.00 you spend — receive a $10 reward when you earn 300 points).
Once you’re a Scorecard member, you’ll see regular coupons in your email inbox like “20% off your entire purchase” or “$20 off your $100 purchase.”
Always take the survey at the bottom of your receipts for an extra “$10 off $50”
Find out about freebies and best things to buy at DICK’S Sporting Goods.
TIP: Shop DICK’S Sporting Goods for next year’s winter gear in March during their outerwear sale to save up to 50% on brands like The North Face and Columbia.
It may come as a surprise, but Lowe’s takes manufacturer coupons for items they sell — like laundry detergent or cleaning products.
Also you can find Lowe’s coupons inside the Ibotta app. Look for offers like “$5.00 back on PUR faucet filtration” and more.
Find out how to shop Lowe’s so you can save money on your next project.
TIP: If you buy your perennials and shrubs at Lowe’s, you can return any that die for up to a year, so keep your receipts!
13. The Home Depot
First, sign up for Home Depot emails to get a $5.00-off coupon instantly.
To find more Home Depot coupons, check out cash-back sites like RetailMeNot for offers like “$2.00 back on purchases of $100 or more” — this is essentially 2% back.
Or shop online through Ibotta to earn 1.5% cash back.
TIP: Home Depot will beat a competitor’s price on exact items by 10%. If you find a lower price on Amazon for an item The Home Depot sells, ask for a price match.
Sign up for Ultamate Rewards in order to earn points that translate into store cash and to receive coupons via email.
Once you’ve signed up, you’ll start seeing coupons like “$3.50 off a $15.00 purchase” and “20% off prestige makeup brands” like Urban Decay, Too Faced and Tarte.
Also look for coupons for a free gift with a purchase.
And you can definitely stack a manufacturer coupon you’d find from Coupons.com with your “$3.50 off $15.00” Ulta store coupon.
TIP: Be sure to shop Ulta during January and July when they run the Jumbo Love Liter Sale. You’ll get liters of shampoo brands like TIGI, Matrix, Paul Mitchell and more for up to 50% off. I always stock up for six months during these sales.
Be sure to sign up for Gap emails to get a coupon for 25% off.
Otherwise, when it comes to Gap, the coupons are typically promo codes like “20% off with code: OHYEAH.”
You can typically stack up to five promo codes online, but not all codes stack with each other. Aim to stack a percentage-off code with a dollar-off code. For example, you could stack a “20% off your purchase” code with a “$10.00 off your purchase” code. In store you can only use one coupon per transaction.
Of course, you can always earn and spend Gap Cash coupons, which ends up being a 25-40% discount. But a better strategy is to stack promo codes online during 40%-off store sales.
Get the lowdown on all the ways to save money shopping Gap.
TIP: If all else fails, be sure to shop Gap during Black Friday. The entire store is 50% off, including sale items, and you can shop online to get the discount.
16. Old Navy
Arguably, Old Navy is Gap’s much cooler (and more lucrative) younger sister. Prices are lower overall and sales are fantastic.
Sign up for Old Navy emails and get a 20%-off coupon instantly.
Plan to shop online and stack up to three coupon promo codes like “Extra $15.00 off your purchase of $50.00 or more with code: SAVE.”
Old Navy Super Cash coupons will save you about 40% consistently, making them a better coupon overall than Gap Cash coupons.
Get more Old Navy savings tricks like these.
TIP: Shop Old Navy’s annual Flip-Flop Sale in June and get $1.00 flip-flops, no coupons needed!
17. Bed Bath & Beyond
The sad news is the 20%-off-coupon glory days at Bed Bath & Beyond seem to be in a downward spiral as the store is trying to entice customers to pay $29.00 per year to join Beyond+, which offers 20% off of every order. Only do this if you consistently spend more than $150 per year; otherwise, you’ll lose money.
You’ll also continually receive 20%-off coupons when you sign up (although on a much less frequent basis than a few years ago).
Also, did you know that Bed Bath & Beyond accepts manufacturer coupons too? So go ahead and use that Sunday insert coupon you clipped for Crest toothpaste at Bed Bath & Beyond.
TIP: Don’t shop Bed Bath & Beyond online unless you’ve signed up for Paribus. Why? Because when there’s a price drop on an item you bought, Paribus will get the difference for you. And it’s free.
18. Jo-Ann Fabrics
Jo-Ann Fabrics offers a lot of coupon opportunities, and in order to get them you need to do all of these things: Download the Jo-Ann app, sign up for Jo-Ann emails, get on Jo-Ann’s snail mail list, and sign up for Jo-Ann text alerts.
Why? Because you can combine coupons in the same transaction only when you have coupons from multiple different sources.
This means you can use two “50% off one item” coupons as long as one is an app coupon and one is a coupon you found on the website.
Plus when you sign up for all these things, you’ll get coupons just for signing up. Plan to see “20% off your order” (email sign-up), “25% off your order” (mobile sign-up) and more!
TIP: Shop Sunday mornings because that’s when new coupons are released and selection will be the best.
You can always find a 40%-off coupon for one regular-priced item in the Michaels app. Plan to see a couple more there too: for example, “20% off Entire Purchase of Spring Floral” or “40% off all Regular-Priced Jewelry-Making Supplies.”
Note that you can’t use a coupon on a sale item, and you can’t stack coupons. Even so, you should at the very least always use the 40%-off coupon to create your own “sale” on an item you want.
TIP: Michaels takes competitor coupons, so you can use Hobby Lobby, Jo-Ann Fabrics or AC Moore coupons on applicable items at Michaels. You just cannot use a competitor coupon if there’s a current Michaels coupon for that item.
20. Hobby Lobby
This is literally the only coupon you can use at Hobby Lobby, and they don’t take competitor coupons.
The 40%-off Hobby Lobby coupon is for one regular-priced item, and the policy states “one coupon per customer per day.”
But if you line your kids up and give them each a coupon to do separate transactions, it might fly. I’m not promising anything, but might not hurt to try it.
Here are more ways to save hundreds of dollars when you shop Hob Lob.
TIP: Shop Hobby Lobby’s twice a year after-clearance sale (after Christmas and early summer). These are the two times a year that Hobby Lobby discounts their home accents department. Discounts start at 50%-66% off and go down from there.
You’ll also save 5% when you buy online and pick up in store, which is an easy discount.
Look for opportunities to stack manufacturer coupons with sales or PetSmart promotions too.
Note that if a manufacturer coupon says “Only redeemable at Petco,” pay no attention. If it’s a manufacturer coupon, it can be redeemed anywhere.
TIP: Download the PetSmart app and play the Treat Trail Game to earn coupons like “$5 off a $25 purchase,” or “10% off one item.” Earn up to three coupons/month.
