It’s a little confusing when people don’t shop with coupons. It’s basically free money.
But some people are turned off of coupon shopping. Maybe it’s because they don’t want to be that guy at the store holding up the line as they slowly page through their coupon clippings, or because they don’t know where to start.
We can’t help you with that first problem, but if you’re looking for free coupon resources, we’ve got you covered.
And besides, those people behind you can just find a different lane!

Which area you live in dictates the store at which you do your grocery shopping.

Cash-Back Rebates and Shopping Portals
You already know why rebates are awesome, so we’ll let that speak for itself.
But are you familiar with shopping portals? They give you cash back on your purchases just for clicking through their site first.
If you’re shopping online, there’s really no reason not to shop through a cash back portal — you’ll make back a percentage of whatever you spend, and even if it’s a small percentage, it’s still money in your pocket!
If you’re not sure whether or not the vendor you’re purchasing from has a cash-back portal option (hint: it probably does), you can check at Cashbackholic.
If you’re a really savvy saver, you’ll stack that deal by using your rewards credit card — we like theBarclaycard CashForward™ World MasterCard® because it’ll get you an additional 1.5% cash rewards on any purchases you make.
80. Ibotta has become one of my very favorite apps — and I no longer make fun of my mom for keeping receipts!
Just find the items you already purchased and snap a quick pic of your receipt as proof. The rebates will be uploaded to your account as soon as they’re confirmed, and once you reach $20 you can cash out via PayPal!
81. Checkout51 works similarly to Ibotta, but most of their rebates can be purchased at any store (as opposed to at a specific vendor).
82. Good Search donates a percentage of your purchase price to charity when you shop through their online portal. You can also use them to search the ‘net to accomplish the same thing!
83. Upromise is a cash-back portal that operates specifically with the goal of helping families save for college.
84. Be Frugal is a free cash-back portal that also lists coupons and deals.
85. Ebates is one of the best, highest-paying cash-back portals on the web.
Hey, speedy! Don’t hit “submit” on that online order until you’ve found something to put into that promo code box.
Even if the retailer isn’t advertising a sale, it’s likely that you can find a promotional code that will work. Here are some resources:
86. Free Shipping: it’s just what you think! Before you click through checkout, head to Free Shipping to see if there might be a code to help you get your items delivered free of charge.
87. PromotionCode.org lists current promotional codes for all kinds of different vendors, so you can make sure you’re getting the absolute best deal.
88. Promo Codes is another great resource for promotional codes.
89. PromoPro: This is another one to check out before you hit “submit”!
Save even more by going mobile, so you can bring your thrifty habits with you no matter where you go.
Here are some of our favorite mobile apps:
90. The Coupons App has tons of great coupons, and also awesome weekly giveaways! It’s available for iOS or Android.
91. Retale will show you local deals and circulars right from your Android or Apple device.
92. Shopular notifies you of the best deals for all your favorite retailers, so you’ll never miss a sale again. Sorry, Android folks — this one’s iPhone only!
93. Coupon Sherpa is one of the coupon sources I see most when I’m searching for a coupon for a specific place. Download the app onto your iPhone or Android device to unlock deals for restaurants and retailers near you.
94. Receipt Hog works similarly to Ibotta — snap a photo of your receipt to earn rewards. It’s not just for groceries, either! Available on iOS and Android.
95. Snap by Groupon gives you cash back on groceries, no matter where you shop. Available for both iOS and Android.
96. Cellfire works both on your PC and your mobile device — even if you still have a Blackberry! It loads coupons directly onto your membership cards, so you’ll never have to worry about forgetting them.
97. Grocery IQ is available for iPhone, iPad and Android devices — and it shows you coupons and deals based on your grocery list, so you know they’ll be useful for you!
98. Flipp shows you all the flyers for the vendors in your area, so you can, uh, flip through them before you head out shopping. That way, you’ll know where to go to get the best deal. Available for iOS or Android.
99. Target Cartwheel: Target’s proprietary couponing app will help you save even more every time you’re drawn headfirst into the big red bullseye. Available for iOS or Android.
Check out these other apps, too. While they’re not couponing resources, they’ll help you get organized and stay saving:
Key Ring keeps all your digital loyalty cards in one place, so your actual key ring doesn’t get unwieldy in the name of thrift! Available for both iOS and Android.
SnipSnap instantly transforms any printed coupon into a digital coupon stored on your phone, so you never forget a coupon again. Sweet. Available for either mobile operating system.
PriceBlink is a browser add-on that automatically finds lower prices for the items you’re interested in buying. That way, you make sure you never get swindled. You can add it to Chrome, Safari or Firefox.
We hope all these resources help you get started on saving — or up your already-awesome Penny Hoarding game. Happy clipping!
