If you’ve ever tried to print an online manufacturer’s coupon from a mobile device, you’ve undoubtedly been frustrated, like us. For nearly a decade now, you could only print online coupons from a desktop computer or laptop — mainly because you had to download software so the system could track and limit the number of coupons you could print. (The software was not compatible with mobile devices.) Thankfully, the times are a changin’! One of the largest sources of online manufacturer’s coupons, Coupons.com, is making major changes to its system, allowing for more accessibility.

Today is the day bargain hunters feared. It’s the last day for double coupons at King Soopers. Be sure to check out our “How To Get The Best Deals at King Soopers” guide tomorrow for money-saving tips! If you’re a true bargain hunter and regular coupon clipper, take a deep breath. Are you ready? King Soopers will no longer double coupons. The popular promo will end on Tuesday, August 23. According to the chain, “Only a small percentage of shoppers use double coupons and customers are responding favorably to the recent increase in the quantity and value of the digital coupons available.” To their benefit, King Soopers promises to invest additional resources in digital coupons. (We’re still in shock. Bryan can’t recall a time, when King Soopers did not double coupons and he’s a Colorado native.) [Read more…] about Breaking News: King Soopers Ends Double-Coupons!
We have loved Chinook Book for years now, especially because it only has offers for local businesses in Denver/Boulder. (It’s one of the few places you can find a discount for many of them. It has the only coupon we’ve ever found for Tattered Cover or Sweet Action Ice Cream!) The discount book has both a print and mobile edition with coupons for businesses that meet its “good business” criteria. They also focus on shops that are great resources for sustainable living, including farmers markets, recycling, biking, local transit, clean energy and green home. They offer coupons in the following categories: Dining, Entertainment, Fashion & Gifts, Grocery Products, Home & Garden, Local Grocery, Travel & Recreation and Wellness. New customers can get a FREE 30-day trial of its mobile app and start enjoying the savings immediately — click here. (The links work best from a mobile device.) We like to set a reminder on our phone just a few days before a trial period ends, so we’re not auto-charged — if we decide to cancel. However, we don’t think you’ll be disappointed with Chinook Book. Happy savings!
It’s easy to simply recycle those Valpak envelopes without even opening them. But don’t! Inside are some decent deals and discounts at Front Range businesses. Each month we find, among others, coupons good for 50% off brunch at Bonnie Brae Tavern, 20% off at Harbor Freight Tools, a $4.99 Autawash car wash and more. If you don’t receive a Valpak or simply want additional offers go to their website which has dozens of downloadable coupons (some identical to the mailing and some unique to the website) for dining, home & garden, shops, groceries and more.
We love leisurely flipping through the Sunday paper over a good cup of chai tea. However, we seem to be the exception, as everything once printed is going digital. Such is true with the Sunday ads and coupons. The Denver Post now offers all of it online for all, not just subscribers — click here. You can review all of the ads, including Target, Walgreens, Sears, Lowe’s, Kohl’s and more. (We noticed a few missing from the usual inserts, namely Best Buy and Rite Aid.) It’s even more convenient because you can print coupons from the weekly SmartSource inserts. Better yet, you can register a participating store loyalty card and download coupons directly to your card — no scissors or coupon binder needed! You just swipe the registered card at checkout and the savings are deducted automatically from your bill. We hope our cup of chai tea never goes digital!
If you don’t get the Sunday paper like so many these days, you don’t have to miss out on the savings and coupons. Thanks to a new service from The Denver Post, non-subscribers can still get a “Sunday Select” supplement delivered to their front door for FREE. What’s the “Sunday Select”? It’s a one-page newspaper with a just a few articles…plus, all the ads and coupons found in the full-size Sunday edition. The Denver Post describes it as, “a supplemental advertising package. It provides neighborhoods free access to local sales and specials from name brand local retailers.” Remember, the option is only for people who do not subscribe to the newspaper. To sign-up, click here. Thanks to Debbie’s Deals at 7NEWS for sharing this money-saving tip!
We’re always on the lookout for coupons. You can find them throughout the grocery store on tear pads, stuck on packages or on shelf tags. However, you can also find them in the pages of in-store publications — many not found anywhere else. We’re always asked about where to find coupons on “healthier” products and here’s the answer: At King Soopers, they publish Optimum Wellness magazine — usually found in the natural foods section or produce department. It’s FREE. The magazine is a quarterly publication based on the lifestyle tenants of Doctors James and Debra Rouse. The publication delivers inspirational, impactful and useful tips for people to live a vibrant and balanced life — everything from practical nutrition advice to everyday fitness programs and stress management strategies. Not only does it deliver “good news”, it also offers many coupons on natural and organic products. We like it because many of the coupons are not often found in Sunday’s paper. Next time, you’re shopping at King Soopers, pick up a copy and check it out for yourself.
Every “true cheapskate” knows the value of his or her coupon file — literally and figuratively. To this end, every saver also knows the pain of losing it. Once again, this “tragedy” has befallen me…for the 6th time. (Yes, I am one of “those people” who always seems to misplace my keys, wallet and glasses.) This time, it was left in the child’s seat of a grocery cart at Safeway. (For any amateur detectives out there, it was the store at 1677 South Havana Street in Aurora on May 5.) I put my groceries in the trunk of the car and happily headed home. Not a worry in the world, until I realized I left my “treasure” in the cart. I panicked and quickly turned around to get back as quickly as possible — fighting traffic all the way, of course. [Read more…] about Lost & Found: I Lost My Coupons…Again
