OK, I went on a mission to find every single place where to get the best coupons and came up with this ultimate list.
I poured over sales ads, emails, store receipts, even bathroom stalls (don’t worry, I washed my hands) to bring you every possible place you can find coupons! From the obvious to the obscure, my list covers them all.
I’ve kept the information simple and included links wherever possible to make it easier for you to get busy saving money.
So if you’re ready to dive in, let’s get to it, starting with grocery savings, as they tend to be the fave!

13 other random places to find coupons and promo codes.

- If you call customer service about a product or issue, while you have the agent on the line, ask for discounts and special offers.
- Abandon your online shopping cart with items in it, and stores will likely send you a promo code. (You have to create an account or provide your email before you abandon your cart, or they won’t know how to contact you with any savings!)
- Be nice to a friendly, hard-working employee. Who knows? Maybe they’ll share a coupon or two with you.
- Stores often place coupons in shopping bags before you check out, so be sure to look through them when you get home.
- Shoppers who don’t need or want certain coupons may leave them behind in a shopping cart or at a self-check register for the next person.
- A coupon angel walks up to you in the store and hands you extra coupons they don’t want or need, or they leave them on the bulletin board near the restroom.
