Since I started teaching others about debt-free and frugal living, I get a lot of inquires asking for free coupons. I do not provide free coupons myself, but I decided to write up a blog post to explain the many ways how to get free coupons by mail. Once you know where to look, when, and how to request them, it’s really pretty easy. Plus there are great resources for printable coupons as well!
Getting free coupons can be an exhilarating rush and there are so many ways to get them.
Many people try using coupons and give up, they become discouraged that coupons are not available for the foods or products they need.
There are definitely more coupons for junk food, but there are also so many companies that will give you free coupons just for doing simple tasks.
I also wrote a book teaching busy moms how to coupon, you can find that on Amazon here.
1.) Sign up for Kellogg’s Family Rewards
Print off Free Kellogg’s coupons every month! Okay, so this may not technically be by mail, but you can print or use digital coupons for your favorite Kellog’s brand products to earn points and redeem them for rewards. Not only do you save money while shopping, but you can receive gift cards for stores and restaurants, enter sweepstakes, sport Kellogs apparel, and gear, or donate to charity.
2.) Sign up for Vocalpoint
They love for you to share your thoughts through surveys, try exclusive products & offers, and provide feedback about your experience.
Many times they offer FREE coupons too. This is for women only, so get your wife to sign up if you are a man reading this.
3.) Email companies directly
If you love a company, email them directly through the contact form on their website. Give them a genuine compliment and ask them if they ever give out coupons for products. This works almost every time I call – give it a shot!
4.) Get printable coupons mailed to your home
Print free coupons from coupons.com which happens to be my favorite place to print online coupons.
5.) ‘Like’ your favorite brands on Facebook
At least once a week we see a company offering a FREE Sample or a FREE product coupon. These are typically mailed to you.
6.) Sign up for Birthday Freebies
Many companies mail out FREE product coupons around your birthday. You can see a full list of which companies do this in my HUGE Birthday Freebies list.
Sign up for newsletters from companies that you like. They send out emails with free samples (which usually include coupons) and also printable coupons. Request as many free samples as you can as well!
Here are 5 of my favorite free coupon apps, they are totally free and easy to use!
Start here and then work your way through your cupboards and see what foods you love! I did this when I first started eating gluten-free. It helped me find the foods that I loved and the ones I didn’t.
When I updated this post, I did want to respond to a lot of the comments where my readers shared concerns about the difficulty of getting free coupons by mail. They said they didn’t have printers or were tech-challenged to work their smartphones or many companies were stopping mail coupons in favor of printable or digital coupons now. Some of my great audience did respond that surveys or coupons helped them to get an inexpensive printer within a couple of weeks, and the printer has more than paid for itself! What a great suggestion!
Another idea I thought was helpful was a coupon swap with friends. If there are things you see coupons for but don’t use, consider exchanging them with friends. I can’t eat gluten foods, so if I see coupons for things like traditional pasta, I can give those to friends in exchange for their gluten-free brand ones.
While I can’t provide you with free coupons, I would love to know in the comments your favorite ways to receive FREE coupons in your mailbox.
