Where can I find Coupons?
You can find coupons in two main spots, newspaper inserts and online. You can also find coupons inside products, magazines, blinkies, peelies, store flyers and catalinas.

What Newspapers?
Inserts are normally only in your Sunday paper. Occasionally there might be some in weekly papers.

What Inserts will I get?
There are 3 Main inserts; RedPlum (RP), SmartSource (SS), Proctor & Gamble (PG). Occasionally other manufacturers will have an insert (Pepsi, Kraft, Unilever). You can check online to see what coupons to expect.

Where are my Inserts?
Normally Holiday weekends don't have inserts (PG is the exception because it only comes out the first Sunday of the month). As hard as it is to believe it you don't get your newspaper delivered they may have been stolen or never got put in at the printer, Always check your paper when you buy it.

Why don't my coupons match the Sunday Coupon Preview or your site?
Coupons are regional. SCP uses coupons from California. I use coupons from West Virginia and Maryland. I also occasionally pick up a paper from Washington DC. So for example in my paper I might get a $0.75 coupon but the DC paper will have a $1.00. My coupon is better because it will double to $1.50. Another example would be $0.50/1 vs $1.00/2. While both are the same value, only the $0.50 coupon will double meaning you get $1.00/1

How do I get more coupons?
Buy multiple papers (recommended is 1 paper per family member). Ask your neighbors, friends or coworkers. Use a coupon clipping service (I personally don't use them).

Why can't I print my online coupons?
Online coupons require special software to print, make sure you have downloaded and installed it. You can also only printer 2 coupons per computer. Online coupons have a print limit and can only be printed x number of times for the whole country.

What are Blinkies & Peelies?
Blinkies are the coupon dispensors you find in your grocery store. They usually have a little red blinking light on them. Peelies are usually found on the outside of the products.

What are Catalinas?
Catalinas are coupons that print at the register after your purchase. They can be anything from a Manufacturer's coupon, a store coupon, or a printout explaining how to get a coupon.

Why does my coupon say Do Not Double, or Do Not Triple?
It basically means that. Its the retailers decision if they want to Double or Triple the coupon. Some stores will some will not (my Martin's does). Retailers only get reimbursed for face value of the coupon so when they Double or Triple it comes out of their pocket.

Why didn't my coupon double?
It depends again on your store. There are three different double scenarios. The store will double any coupon not to exceed $1.00 ($0.50 will double $0.50, $0.75 will double $0.25). The store will double any coupon up to $0.99 ($0.50 will double $0.50, $0.75 will double $0.75). The store will double any coupon up to $0.99 not to exceed the items value. Some store will also only double the first like coupon for an item.

What is a MIR?
MIR stands for Main-In Rebate. This requires you to normally send in a copy of your reciept along with the UPC code from your purchase.
