Weight Loss on a Budget Tip #30: Best Coupon Sites for Food and Retail Savings – Today, I want to share some of the best coupon sites I found for deals on food, health food products, and workout gear. The great thing is that it’s not just about cutting coupons from your local newspaper. You can get coupons on apps and online. (Check out the rest of our tips)
TIP: Eating healthy doesn’t have to be expensive. Use coupons to save money on household items (detergent, cleaning supplies, paper towels), snacks for the kids and toiletries, like razors and deodorant. Use the money you save to buy more high quality, healthy food that will help you reach your goals.
Coupons.com – This is one of the best, popular coupon sites. It’s very easy to use and to share deals on social media channels with friends. You just select the coupons you want and print them out. It’s pretty simple, but you do have to download their printer program to print out coupons.
TheKrazyCouponLady.com – This is my FAVORITE coupon site. This site not only tells you about deep discounts and deals at your favorite stores, but it teaches you how to clip coupons like a pro. You will find deals on food, restaurants, magazines, travel and more. The best thing about this site: They match up coupons with deals from sales papers and websites so that it’s easy for you to use the coupons you’re clipping in the most effective way.
RetailMeNot.com – I check this before I buy any clothing online to look for coupon codes. You can find deals of workout clothes, fitness gear, vitamins and supplements, as well as things that you use on a daily basis. There is a lot of potential here for you to save money. I also like that people can chime in and note if a code is on the site, but has expired so you don’t waste time with old coupon codes.
RedPlum.com – This is another classic coupon clipping website with their own printing software. I didn’t find as many healthy food coupons, but I did find a lot of coupons that I would actually use on a monthly basis for things we buy regularly. If you can save money on things like shampoo, soap, frozen food, staple foods, etc…you can use that savings on things that help you lose weight.
Ibotta App – If you make shopping lists in advance, this is the app for you. Ibotta is a free app that pays you a cash rebate for everyday purchases. How does it work? Basically, after you’ve shopped for items that have rebates on the app, you scan the UPC code on the package of the item and scan your receipt with the app. The info is verified and you get a rebate.
Major Grocery Store Chains – Many grocery stores have a coupon section on their websites. You can check out these sites before going to the store for deals on what you have on your shopping list. Here are some examples:
Target: You can also use Target’s Cartwheel app on your mobile phone for in store coupons for food, clothing and more.
