Grocery Store CouponsOffered by almost every major retailer, Grocery Store Coupons are an excellent augmentation to manufacturer coupons, and increase the shopper’s savings by stacking the two together.

These coupons are offered by the retailers through store magazines, direct mail & email, local newsletters and more. More store coupons are available at coupon dispensers through out the store.

Grocery Store Coupons (also known as Retailer Coupons) can almost always be stacked with manufacturer coupons, increasing your savings considerably.

The next time you are at the grocery store, look for the coupon dispensers located along the aisles. Pick a few (Remembering to leave some for others…) as you shop to build up your coupon stock.

If you trade coupons with others or have teamed a coupon group, pick some that you don’t normally use for your self but may interest others.

Some stores (e.g. CVS) have machines that will spew out extra coupons when you scan your loyalty card. You won’t be able to trade these coupons, but they can add up to your reserve.

Other stores (e.g. Kruger) put out eCoupons that load onto your loyalty card. These free electronic coupons can often be stacked on top of paper coupons – increasing your savings.

Safeway posts its grocery store coupons on its weekly coupon magazine that is released every Wednesday and often on Sundays too. The magazine can be found in all of the stores.

Safeway will also release a seasonal coupon book from time to time.  They may be found at the store but for some reason they are usually tacked away, so you’ll need to ask for them at the Customer service. The coupons inside these booklets usually correlate with national promotion campaigns such as frozen Food or the Diabetes Awareness.

Occasionally, they will put Sunday Paper Coupons on the SmartSource or the RedPlum inserts as well.

These coupons will always have the Target logo on them to differentiate them from the standard Grocery Manufacturer Coupons. It’s important to identify them correctly as such, because they can be Stacked with a manufacturer coupon to increase your savings.
