Where to Find Canadian Coupons

The first and most important step in getting started with coupons in Canada is, well, getting coupons to use! This is really the easy part because coupons are actually really abundant in Canada!

Today, I am going to give you a list so you know where to find Canadian coupons that will help you save money! Coupons are a great way to save money on food, cleaning supplies, hygiene products and more.

Here is where to find Canadian coupons so you can get your coupon stash growing quickly:

At the grocery store

Grocery stores can be a treasure trove of coupons. There are several different kinds of coupons you can keep an eye out for.

  • Tear pad coupons – These can be found on the front of shelves or on those cardboard display cases, usually very close to the product for which the coupon is intended. Some large grocery stores also have large coupon boards at the front entrances where you will find dozens of tear pad coupons. As you find the ones you think you will use, keep in mind that you don’t have to use them on the day that you take them!
  • Peelies – Peelies are those little sticker coupons that you can sometimes find attached to products. Recently, I have found them on cereal boxes, feminine products, and granola bars. Keep an eye out! These are meant to be taken only when you purchase the product on which they are found!
  • Hang Tags – Like peelies, but they are actually hanging on products with an elastic. These are also meant to be taken only when you purchase the product on which they are found!
  • Rep Coupons – You know those booths that are set up in grocery stores with someone handing out samples or simply bringing awareness to a product? They often have coupons to give out!

Printable Coupons Where to find Canadian coupons

If you have access to a printer, you will love to know that there are so many printable coupons available to Canadians. Many companies Like Save.ca, webSaver.ca, GoCoupons.ca and P&G offer coupons that you can immediately print right from home, cut out and take to your local stores to redeem. Check out the giant list of printable Canadian coupons that are available on Simply Frugal!

Mail to Home Coupons 

Some companies run promotions where they mail coupons (for free product, or money off) to you via Canada Post. One such company is Chapman’s Ice Cream. Every year you can request for them to mail you a $4.00 off coupon to use on their ice cream products. Save.ca is also a coupon service that offers mail to home coupons.

Be sure to keep an eye out for coupons from fast-food restaurants! These you don’t have to sign up for. They just come as junk mail and can be quite valuable if you utilize restaurants like Subway, McDonald’s, Wendy’s, Dairy Queen, etc.

In product packaging

You can also find coupons inside specially marked boxes or packages that may be used for future purchases. I often see these coupons inside cereal boxes, granola bars and taco kits.

Free Samples

Many times when I fill out a form for a free sample, when it arrives, it comes with a coupon. Sample boxes from companies like SampleSource often add coupons into the box along with the samples.

Email Newsletters

Join email lists of the companies that you often buy from, if they have one. When you sign up online, make sure to check the box that asks if you would like to have special coupons and offers sent to you. I also recommend having a separate email address for signing up for things like this. You wouldn’t want to clutter up your personal email! Gay Lea, Oxi Clean, Saputo and Oasis are all examples of companies that regularly send out coupons with their newsletters.

Email your favourite companies

If you have a favourite product, there is absolutely no harm in emailing or calling that particular company asking if they have any coupons available to mail to you! Many companies are very willing to send coupons your way if you ask!

Coupon Apps

Also known as Cash-Back apps! If physical coupons aren’t your thing, cash-back apps might be a better option for you! The way most cash-back apps work is:

  1. Download the app
  2. Browse the list of cash-back offers then buy your groceries
  3. Select the offers you purchased
  4. Upload your receipt
  5. Earn Cash Back when your receipt is approved

The best Cash Back apps in Canada are: Checkout 51, Caddle, Eclipsa, webSaver Digital Coupons, Honey (for online shopping) and Rakuten (for online shopping).

How to Organize Coupons

Now that you know where to find Canadian coupons, you’re going to have to figure out some sort of organizing system so they don’t end up expiring before you use them. There are many different ways to organize coupons, but you may have to try out a couple of systems before you find one that works best for you.

In this post, I’ll be listing several different ways on how to organize coupons. You’re sure to find a system that will work for you!

Coupon Organizing Method #1 – The Wallet Size Expanding Folder

This was my first method of coupon organization. I picked up a wallet sized coupon folder from a local dollar store. You can also find them on Amazon. The folder from the dollar store already included pre-categorized sections like, baking goods, beverages, cleaning products and condiments. Feel free to personalize each section to how you like it. Maybe you want to organize your coupons by expiry date. Or label each section with store names so you could place all the coupons you intend on using at a particular store in the appropriate section!

This coupon organizer is similar, but more like a wallet!

Coupon Organizing Method #2 – Use Envelopes

Organize all your coupons using envelopes. Make an envelope for each category. (such as Meat, Dairy Products, Cleaning Products, Paper Products, etc.) Accumulate all the coupons you plan on using and store them in the corresponding envelopes so they can be easily found.

Coupon Organizing Method #3 – The Coupon Box

Use index cards to create all the categories you’ll need.  With this method, your coupons will be really easy to find, but you may find it a bit bulky if you want to bring it into the stores you shop at.  Here’s an example from Monica Wilkinson using a cute recipe box, including the categories she uses.

Coupon Organization Method #4 – The Coupon Binder

The coupon binder is a hugely popular coupon organization method and is the one I’m currently using. It’s fairly simple to create your own using a three-ring binder, page dividers, trading card holders, and perhaps a zippered pocket to hold scissors, random coupons, or a calculator.  I’ve also heard of people using photo albums instead of a binder! Here are a couple of tutorials to help you get idea on how to create a coupon binder system that may work for you:

How to Sort  your Coupons

Now that you have some ideas on what to put your coupons in, you may want some ideas on how to sort your coupons.

  • Organize by product:  Rather than create categories, you could group all your similar product coupons together.  For example, all shampoo coupons together and all makeup coupons together.
  • Organize by expiry month:  Create a section for each month of the year and place the coupons according to the month they expire.
  • Organize alphabetically:  Put your Irish Spring coupons in the “I” section and your Crest coupons in the “C” section.
  • Organize by category:  Probably the most popular way of sorting coupons.  Place all coupons in broad categories such as Meat, Paper products, and Snacks.

I hope this post gave you some ideas on how to organize coupons with a system that will work for you!
