Today I thought I would keep it really simple and share with everyone some of my favourite Canadian websites I use to find great coupons.
The first place I always go to is www.save.ca At this site you simply register and log in to view all the money saving coupons. One thing that I will mention that you might not know is that there are different save.ca links. I have tried to compile as many of these links together in one major forum post here on Canadian Free Stuff. You can access the list by placing your mouse over the “coupon” tab at the top of the forum page until the drop down menu appears and click on the save.ca coupon list. I try to keep this list current and active but I must apologise if there are links that are not (I will update it as soon as I possibly can. It’s on my to do list). The main site is constantly changing so I suggest adding this one to your favourites list and checking it weekly, if not daily. They sometimes offer Free Product Coupons and they don’t last very long (sometimes only 1 or 2 days).
The next place to check out is www.brandsaver.ca This site is one that offers fantastic money saving coupons for P & G brand products. With both save.ca and brandsaver you request the coupons and they are mailed directly to you in the mail. It is absolutely free and usually only takes a few days to arrive. Once you request coupons there is a time limit before you can request that same coupon again. Brandsaver currently has over $100.00 in money saving coupons up for grabs. I suggest signing up for their newsletter alert, that way you will know when new coupons are available.
Another great site is www.websaver.ca You can browse through 60 Canadian coupons and over $60.00 in savings. The bonus to using websaver coupons is; “webSaver.ca donates 5¢ from every coupon you redeem to charity”. You save money and help others at the same time. There are coupons for pet food, personal care, house and home, beauty, grocery items and more. These coupons are also mailed directly to you free of charge. Just register, log in, select which ones you want and submit your request. Also check out for Hidden Websaver Coupon Portals
The next one on my list is www.gocoupons.ca. This is a smaller site but they still offer great coupons. There are currently about 10 coupons offered on this site. The nice thing about coupons from go coupons is that the expiry dates are quite long. There also doesn’t appear to be a limit to how many coupons you can order. I always make sure and have the Royale Bathroom Tissue one on hand. It is a great one especially when you hit a big sale.
Another favourite is www.lifemadedelicious.ca . Again register and log in to take advantage of their “offers and perks” section. I also suggest liking this one on Facebook so you can easily see when new offers and coupons are available. This is a site created by General Mills so those are the products you will find here. They have teamed up with save.ca and most if not all coupons are save.ca ones. Sometimes they are exclusive to life made delicious members only and you cannot even see them on the main save.ca site.
One more to add to your list is www.rightathome.ca . This is a SC Johnson website and in fact you can access it through www.scjohnson.ca as well. You must once again sign in to view their coupon section. Just select which ones you want mailed to you and then it will redirect you to the appropriate websaver.ca webstie to complete your order.
Another resource for finding coupons is www.flyerland.ca. With this one you might find that there is some overlapping with save.ca coupons but often you will find new ones you have not yet discovered. Just put in your postal code or choose your city to see what is available in your area.
One more is www.couponclick.ca .Here you can print out coupons for different products and some services as well. Not all products are familiar to me on this site but there are some useful ones like the Nivea one. When I first encountered this website I had a bit of a problem printing out their coupons, but I just contacted them and they were able to walk me through the process very easily. To be honest I can’t even remember the particular issue or else I would share it with you all.
I almost forgot another one of my favourites. Check out www.livingwell.ca. This is a great place to get Canadian printable coupons. They offer lots of health care items and at least once a month have free trial offers. Sign up again to get their newsletter so you will know the date and time when giveaways are being offered. (They go really fast). Log in and select your province to print your coupons. These print out at a fairly regular size but remember to check with your local store before trying to use printable coupons. Not all stores accept them.
Smartsource.ca is another great website for printing out valuable Canadian coupons. You will need to make sure that your Java Script program is up to date and you install their coupon printing application before these coupon will print out. It is a little tricky, but worth it in the long run.
If you have a Costco Card than you have to check out www.getmoreofwhatyoulove.ca These are the coupons that are available for Costco members and are usually handed out at the front door entrance of Costco stores.
Another one is www.looniecoupons.ca. At this website they offer some provincial coupons. They are mostly restaurants and services divided up by province and even city. If you eat out a lot then you should have a look if any of your local eateries offer coupons here.
If you live in Ontario like me, then another one I can suggest is www.attractionsontario.ca. Here you will find coupons for different parks, museums, zoos and other attractions. I am sure that other provinces must have a similar website where you can go to find coupons like this.
The rest of the places I go to find Canadian coupons on line are particular product company sites. Check out sites like Kellogg’s, Kashi, L’Oreal, Covergirl, Catelli, McCain, Payless Shoes, Michael’s, Magic Cuts, So Good, TRESemme, Cetaphil, Cold-Fx and any other product or business you can think of. I have found lately that I am finding more coupon alerts by “liking” companies on Facebook. Check out restaurants and sign up for their newsletters. I always get printable coupons for free appetizers and special treats on my birthday and anniversary. I even registered at a very high end dining establishment and received a $25.00 off gift certificate to spend when I visited them to celebrate my anniversary with a nice dinner.
I also give companies my e-mail address. I do this when out shopping. Companies like Please Mom and Aeropostale will send you exclusive e-mail discount coupons that you otherwise never know about.
I hope this blog post can help get some of you started on your way to saving more money by using Canadian Coupons this year. I also invite any seasoned couponers out there to share any other websites they can think of to add to this list. After all the goal here is to help each other save even more.
I look forward to your comments and thanks for taking the time to visit.
We still have more exciting posts coming up this week, so check back soon.
