How do I get started on this site?
Getting started is easy.  You can head over the beginners section to read all about finding coupons, how to get the best match ups, stockpiling and more. You can also check out the coupon database for all the latest coupons and how to organize your coupons by going to the Coupons 101 section.   (Back to top)

Where do I get multiple copies of inserts?
There are several ways to get extra copies of the inserts.  One is to purchase multiple newspapers each week.  Another is from friends and family members.   (Back to top)

Which papers carry inserts for my area?
Receiving your Sunday paper only to find the coupons are not enclosed is frustrating! Here’s an article that will shed some light on the subject.  (Back to top)

How do I organize my coupons?
Organization is key if you really want to take full advantage of all the coupons available. Take a look at these videos and they will help put you in the right direction.  (Back to top)

My store will not accept my coupons.  What do I do?
Unfortunately there is nothing you can do right there at the store.  However, if you feel that your store should be accepting the coupons, then speak to the store manager or call or email the corporate office.  Explain why these are legitimate coupons and where you got them from.  Stores get illegitimate coupons and lose money on these coupons thus they become leary of anything that looks suspicious even when it is a perfectly legitimate coupon.

You do need to know your stores coupon policy so ask customer service or the manager what they accept or do not accept so you are fully aware of what you can use.  Some stores do not allow PDF coupons, some do not allow internet coupons over $5 and so on.  So, make sure to learn your individual store acceptance policy.(Back to top)

My catalina did not print.  What do I do?
If you catalina did not print there are 2 ways to handle it.

1. If the deal is listed in your circular or on a shelf tag, in most cases you can go directly to customer service.

2.  If this is not a catalina deal that is in the circular then the best thing to do is visit the Catalina Marketing site and complete the form provided.

    When shopping at Rite Aid, if I want to qualify for the $10 gas card or the UPRewards, is the amount required to spend based off of the shelf price before coupons or after coupons? For instance, do I have to spend $30 after the coupons I have in order to qualify for the gas card or does it just have to be $30 purchased before coupons? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    • Laura D.

      $30 before coupons.

  • SEAN

    WHERE CAN I SEND MY EXPIIRED COUPONS? I NEED ADDRESS TO MILIITARY BASE?

    • Rocky

      Sorry Sean. My reply is held up in moderation since it included the link to the post on this site w/military base info. Check back on Sunday, during the day when it will probably be released! Or, watch for the Sunday post that lists the weekly expiring coupons. The military link is usually included in that post!

  • Cece

    Question; If I add an online ShopRite coupon to my ShopRite card, and I buy 2 or 3 items of such item, will the coupon apply to all 2 – 3 items or just one? Thanks :)

    • Jenn

      Just one

      • Cece

        Thanks

  • Paula

    I usually shop at Wegmans, which I find to be pricey. How do I know that their sale price is the lowest for a certain product? For example, if Cheerios is on sale for $1.99 at Wegmans, how do I know that they won’t be on sale at Walmart next week for $1.50. When do I know that I’m getting a good deal & should use my coupons?

    • http://Livingrichwithcoupons.com Loretta Dugan

      It’s all about comparison pricing…. you won’t know whether or not something is always going to go on sale, however LRWC does a great job of trying to provide early editions of most grocery store sales ads
      LRWC Also has a great Grocery Price Comparison tool to help you check before you buy :) HTH

  • April

    Hey! I just got a new iphone and was reinstalling apps – of course, one of my favorite apps is LRWC! But when I went onto the App Store, LRWC isn’t coming up! So strange because on my last iphone I did install it from the app store. Any ideas what’s going on?

  • Mary Brown

    I have a Mac computer and it won’t print coupons, anyone know how to get around it?

    • Sandy

      Lower you security setting, update Java and you may possibly have to unistall and reinstall Smartsource Coupons a few times for it to work. I have 2 Macs and no problems anymore. Other people on this site much better at trouble shooting computers than I am :)

  • Melaniece

    I WANTED TO KNOW HOW TIMES I CAN USE A COUPON ON JUST ONE PRODUCT

    • Sandy

      Ecoupons are one time use only. Paper coupons – 1 coupon per item

  • jen

    To print extra coupons would I need another computer or another internet provider ?

  • New Buzz

    Hello all, I’m super excited to start couponing! I live in Southern California. Do match ups, couponing, store policies….all the information on this site apply to Southern California?

  • Maria

    why does it say limit reached? does that mean I can’t print anymore of the coupon?

    • Laura D.

      Yes, you can print 2 coupons per computer or ipad/ipod/iphone.

    • george

      On most coupon sites, you may request 2 coupons per item. Of course, if you have more than one computer and printer you may request additional coupons. Sometimes the limit is per e-mail address.

  • Ted

    What does SRFH mean? Shoprite From Home? Didn’t see it in the abbreviations and have been couponing for awhile but took a break. Never seen this abbrv though

    • John

      Yep you got it,,,,

    • JJ

      Yup!

  • Shirley Clifton

    I just printed off some coupons, and went back to print second coupon and it says the “coupon limit reached” What happened?

    • Melinda Dilione

      most coupons have a 2 coupon print limit per computer. this must be the case for the coupons you’re referring to. you can print that coupon again from a different device. hope that helps!

    • janet

      close the window you already printed from the first time, and click the link for the coupon again. you should find your second print available. sometimes you have to “start over” to get the second print. hth.

  • Toni

    Hello have anyone figured out how to print coupons from your iPad?

  • marcela

    why when I printed my coupons It doesn’t say Manufacter coupon, help please!!

    • Denise Uzunis

      What coupons did you print?

      • marcela

        On all my coupons is the same thing

  • Nancy Morbeto

    Stock up prices. Does this site have a spread sheet of stock up prices? Or something I could put my stock up prices in.

  • Annie

    Does laundry and dish soap freeze

    • Rocky

      I don’t know the answer, but, you have me curious! Why would you feel you should freeze those items? The ‘shelf’ life (without freezing) is something like…forever (sorry, didn’t know how else to say that!), so, it isn’t necessary. But, I realized you might want to know from another perspective, like if you are keeping them in a very cold place, such as an unheated garage, and didn’t want there to be a problem if the temp got that cold! I don’t keep my laundry detergent there, it is in the basement, but, my dish soap stockpile has been in our unheated garage for a year, or more, at a time, and I haven’t had any problems with them! No changes to their consistency, or anything.

  • Sherry-Lynne K

    What region do you look at the sales ads from?

  • Becky

    I’m just trying I print coupons. How do I do that on this sIte? All I can do is “clip” but that doesn’t give me a barcode For checking out with at a store.

    • Denise Uzunis

      Where are you trying to print the coupons from?

  • Seth

    I was reading under the FAQ’s and the links for questions regarding BOGO’s take me to “Opps, can’t seem to find what you’re looking for”, which is VERY unhelpful to a first time coupon-er/visitor to your site. Was disappointed I guess. I am trying to figure out how to coupon so I can start a non profit organization and help supplement the local food pantry’s. I’m having a rough go of if. Now that I notice these other posts are from 3 years ago, I don’t expect much help.I wish your site was current…this is very discouraging.

    • http://livingrichwithcoupons.com/ Cindy Livesey

      Seth, I’m sorry you hit a page that was no longer available. We have a lot of older posts that are timeless or that we update as things change. We also have a TON of new and useful posts that we post every single day. Make sure to head over to the beginners section with is filled with so much info to help you get started. The link is herehttp://www.livingrichwithcoupons.com/beginners/extreme-couponing-101

      Hope that helps.

      • stella

        extra word “here” caught in the hyperlink

  • jb

    coupon clipping services?

    • Rocky

      JB, what is it you would like to know, specifically?

      • jb

        Wondering where I could obtain specific coupons to match up with upcoming sales. Are there coupon clipping services to get coupons from? Thanks for any input

        • Rocky

          Yes, there are a number of them. I can give you a few options, and, you can also do a search online for others. There is Klip2Save, couponsthingsbydede, Coupon Carryout, My Coupon Hunter, We Clip U Save, Wiz Clipz, etc. You should check out any site you are interested in to find out their specific criteria. Some may have minimum order quantities per coupon, and/or minimum dollars per order; some only ship in lot quantities of 5 or 10 per coupon, and so on. See which fits your needs, best. Good luck!

        • Chefpat

          Couponfleamarket is my favorite…no shipping charges…always has what I’m looking for.

          • Rocky

            For some reason, I’m leery of that! Looks like a bunch of individual folks who previously sold on ebay… But, if it works, it works!

            • Chefpat

              Do me a favor and take another look..Def not Ebay related….I’ve used Klip2save, Couponthingsbydede but have been turned off by them imposing limits (12 usually) or being out of stock almost immediately. Couponfleamarket has come thru for me every time…many different sellers so I can see how it might look Ebayish to you but it really is the best site to purchase Q’s from…if for the no shipping charges alone. I guarantee that any coupons that you want, even when the ones you mentioned are out of stock, Couponfleamarket will have them….and, free shipping!!

              • Rocky

                Thanks for the explanation, Chefpat! I may just take a look!

                • Chefpat

                  I hope you do…let me know what you think…I know what you mean by being turned off at first by the site…looks kinda Ebay (sorry Ebay) but it really is great…there are so many sellers that you can count on someone having what you want and I have bought from so many of them that I can say that they are dependable and always ship immediately.( I’m not a sales rep for them) LOL

                • Laura D.

                  I’ve used them also. Chefpat is right, love that site!

              • Andrea

                On the bottom of their site it says

                “We jumped at the opportunity to partner with Jacks Cards and Coupons as they can offer our customers better prices, faster shipping and a bigger selection of coupons. Take a look at their site, they have a large selection for just $.79 a batch. Smartsource, Redplum P&G and more !!!”

                I’ve bought coupons from Jacks Cards and Coupons on ebay before. (they are just ok).

  • Cassk

    New to the site, downloaded coupon printer successfully and now the coupons I clipped wont print.

  • corinne

    I am having issues with the list feature. I got to print after adding my desls and it says its empty.

    • Linda

      I’m having the same issue on my laptop and ipad. I’m also getting a word processing error in addition to the empty list message. My Shopping List has the items I selected, but when I go to print or email it says my list is empty. Does anyone know why or how to fix it? It’s very frustrating making up a list and not be able to email it or print it. This is not the first time it happen.

      • http://livingrichwithcoupons.com/ Cindy Livesey

        Have you tried clearing your cache and closing and reopening your browser. Also, please email me at cindy@livingrichwithcoupons.com with the issues and your operation system and browser so we can address it directly. thanks.

  • Jessi

    I went to dollar tree with my coupons and they didn’t have any of the items that this site said would match up. Is there certain websites for certain states. I was so excited to go shopping and when I got there I was so disappointed that I actually cried. I’m just starting out. Could someone help me out. I’m a mother of 4 and we need all the help we can get. Thank you in advance.

    • Sandy

      Dollar Tree is a hit or miss. Hard to shop there or rely on coupon use as their stock is unreliable. What state are you in? Where do u grocery shop?

  • Charlotte Hess

    how do i change the zip code i cannot find the link on the site, thanks

    • Sandy

      Change the zip code where? Coupons dot com?

    • http://Livingrichwithcoupons.com Loretta Dugan

      http://www.livingrichwithcoupons.com/printable-coupons-2/coupons-com-2 Use this link, then on the left side of the page you’ll see a box it may have a zip code in it already or it may say enter zip code, enter the zip code you want then click the little arrow next to the box :)

  • kim

    I am not able to print my coupons. It goes to the printer and then there is an error.

    • Sandy

      You obviously have a problem with your printer. See if you can troubleshoot it with the manual or online. Don’t try to print any coupons that you actually want until you figure it out! What kind of printer? Maybe someone here can help you if they know which one you’re dealing with.

  • Donna

    Can someone tell me which site has best download for coupons.I keep getting a different printer download every where I go. I don’t want to download 7 different ones. most have same coupons it seems. which is the best one? shop at home or explorer or what..thanks so much….

    • Sandy

      Unfortunately each coupon site requires you to download/update their software.
      Coupons dot com has the most coupons for sure. You will inevitably miss out on many a deals if you chose to only print from that site. Smartsource and RedPlum I recommend also.

  • mp

    there is no option the print?
    why is this?
