I went on a mission to find every single place to get 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.
So if you’re ready to dive in, let’s get to it, starting with grocery savings, as they tend to be the fave!
Before you start searching for coupons, don’t forget to download the KCL app for coupons, sales, and deals.
Never pay full price for your groceries. With a collection of coupons and a bit of planning, you can enjoy savings every time you’re at the register.
Get Sunday newspaper coupons for free or through a subscription
You can find free newspaper coupons left behind in your local coffee shop, libraries, post office, or waiting rooms! Or, wait until Monday and ask local businesses if they have any leftover newspapers you can have.
Check Discounted Newspapers for potentially cheap newspaper subscriptions — simply enter your zip code and see what you can save.
Find free coupons in stores.
When you’re shopping in a store, there are a few different ways you can get free coupons. The very first thing you should do is get the in-store sales flyer. Not only will that show you the current sale, but it sometimes contains exclusive coupons that pair with the sale ad.
Grab free manufacturer coupons directly on products.
While you’re shopping through the store, look out for these free manufacturer coupons:
- peelies (adhesive coupons)
- hangtag coupons
- tear-pad coupons
- blinkies (coupons that pop out of a little dispenser with a blinking light)
- Inside the package
Cereal boxes are notorious for having peelies slapped right on the box. And remember, just because you found these coupons doesn’t mean you have to use them right away.
Score printable coupons on the web.
There are multiple dedicated coupon sites out there. Thankfully, we do the hard work for you. KCL has the web’s most comprehensive database for free printable coupons.
Here’s how to print exactly what you’re looking for:
- Search for the item or brand you’re looking for (“detergent,” “Tide,” etc.).
- Click on the “Printable” section.
- Choose the coupon you’d like. It will then take you to the website to print. Depending on the site, you may need to sign up to access the coupon.

Sign up for a store reward or loyalty card.
Sign up for the newsletter and text alerts from your favorite grocery store. Not only can you get digital coupons, but you can also save at the pump and earn cash back. You can save up to $0.10 per gallon of gas when you earn 100 rewards points from shopping and earn cash back with cash-back deals with your loyalty grocery cards for stores like Kroger. These are the best loyalty programs.
Use coupon apps to get digital coupons.
Stores like Kroger, Target, Publix, and Winn-Dixie have digital coupons you clip right to your account. Plus, other coupon sources like Coupons.com offer digital coupons that are linked to your reward or loyalty card.
Keep the savings going with cash-back apps — like Ibotta.
The savings don’t stop with just coupons. Before you go out shopping, be sure to check out our Ultimate Guide to Rebate Apps. You’ll learn exactly how to save even more money with the use of rebate apps.
Start with these rebate or cash-back apps:
Shop for groceries on Amazon.
Before you roll your eyes at me, buying your groceries from Amazon can save you money and time!
Amazon Subscribe & Save is a great way to get an even deeper discount on Amazon items. Subscribe & Save deals are pretty good, but when you stack them with Amazon coupons, they’re even better. When you have 5 or more items subscribed, you’ll get 15% off each item. That’s in addition to any coupons or sales! Shopping for diapers? Amazon Family members get 20% off of baby products in their Subscribe & Save.
Whether you shop at a national chain like CVS or Walgreens or a local pharmacy, you can find coupons to save you some bucks. Use the tips from the grocery tips above, plus these extras exclusive to drugstores.
Need a refresher?
Clip digital coupons on your local pharmacy website(s).
Like grocery stores, drugstores offer digital coupons you can clip to your loyalty card too. Stores like Walgreens, CVS, and Rite Aid offer personalized coupons as well. The more you shop there, the more the store learns what products you like.
Look for free coupons printed at the register.
Not all drugstores have Catalina machines, but they do have coupons that print at the register, which print out at the Catalina machine, in addition to your receipt or on the bottom/back of your receipt. You don’t have to be a part of a loyalty program to get these register rewards.
Use apps to get prescription discount coupons.
Save on your prescriptions with a coupon app. There are a few to choose from:
Ask your doctor for a coupon or a sample (which nearly always has coupons inside).
The next time you visit your doctor, don’t be afraid to ask if they have any free samples. Not only does this give you the chance to try a product for free, but it nearly always has a prescription discount coupon inside for the full size product.

Create an account online with a fake/separate email just for the welcome coupons.
Don’t use your main email to sign up for store promos — you’ll get buried under a mountain of spam. I use 10minutemail.com to get a temporary email address, grab the promo code when it hits my inbox, and boom! The account goes away. Buuuttt I still have the promo code!
