Everybody needs to eat so anything you can do to save money on groceries and food in general is bound to make a significant impact to your family budget. Coupons are one of the best ways to do that! Many people shy away from coupons because they either think they are too hard to find, couponing is too much hassle, they only give you puny discount anyway, or coupons don’t exist for healthy products that are worth buying.
There is some truth to each of those objections, but they definitely aren’t universally true by any means. The main thing is to have an abundant source of easy to get coupons that you can hand pick to suit your needs. That’s why I’ve put together this comprehensive list of places where you can find Canadian coupons online.
These are the sites that either allow you to print the coupons directly using your home printer or will mail the coupons you choose directly to you in a period of a few weeks after you place your order. If you make it a habit to come back here and check these sites every so often, you will always have a fresh supply of coupons coming in that are hand-picked by you.
Facebook has become one of the biggest sources of online coupons even overtaking many of the above websites as the go-to place for high value coupons. Its quite common to find coupons that give you a discount of several dollars or even free product coupons that will let you try a new product absolutely free.
It can be worth it to create a dummy Facebook account just for couponing purposes so you don’t have to clutter up your main feed with marketing messages from a bunch of different companies. Either way, just do a quick search for all your favourite companies and brands and see what coupons they have available. Also, stay tuned to your favourite coupon websites and blogs as they will usually alert you to the latest Facebook coupons.
Although Facebook has overtaken company websites as a means for promoting coupons, companies will still use their websites as a gateway to coupons for their products. So do a quick search for your favourite products there too and you might be surprised with a few good coupons. Often times coupons linked to by companies themselves will take you through to special portals on one of the websites listed above like Save.ca and show you special coupons that they don’t list on their main page.
Email Companies Requesting Coupons
Companies love to hear from their loyal customers so it can really pay off to take a few extra minutes to email or call the companies whose brands you really love and and make a personal request for some coupons. Tell them how much you love their products and they you purchase them on a regular basis but you want to know if they could send you a few coupons for being a loyal customer to help make their products more affordable. This won’t always work and I wouldn’t recommend contacting the same companies too often, but it can pay off big time. I remember one time I contacted Amy’s Pizza because were on a healthy frozen pizza kick and they sent me coupons for 4 or 5 free pizzas + a bunch of dollar off coupons to boot. That was a sweet deal!
It can be hit and miss, but grocery stores will occasionally have coupons on their own websites that are either manufacturer’s coupons or store-specific coupons. Store-specific coupons are the best because they can usually be combined with manufacturer’s coupons to give you an even bigger discount on a single product. You might even walk away with the product for free!
Buy Coupons Online
Most people wouldn’t ever think of doing this, but it is actually possible to buy coupons online. This can actually be a great option for busy people who still want to coupon because you can get multiple copies of high value coupons at a very reasonable price without putting in any effort to find and collect them. The coupons might even come pre-clipped for you so you don’t have to waste time cutting them out, but you should ask the seller just to be sure.

The first place to look for coupons to purchase is Ebay.ca. Head on over there and search for either “grocery coupons” or just “coupons” and see what turns up. Get creative with your search terms and mix in product and brand names and you are bound to find all kinds of good stuff.
Another great new source for purchasable coupons is WeClip.ca. This is a site operated by a Canadian mom who finds and clips the coupons along with some help from her friends for a very reasonable price. The available coupons are listed on the site, so get to pick and purchase only the coupons that you want and you are guaranteed that they come pre-clipped. I haven’t used the service yet myself, but it looks like a definite winner to me!
