I love shopping, and what is better than shopping? Saving money while shopping. Here are some links that I frequent for printable store coupons. There are also some deals or codes I receive that may be shared. This page is a plethora of money-saving knowledge. If you have a link, frugal tip or bargain that you think should be listed here let me know! Contact me by email at: firstname.lastname@example.org. This page is updated on a monthly basis (as needed). The info in RED is a deal/coupon/bargain that has an expiration date.
Michaels also has awesome weekly store coupons. Check for the current sales flyer and coupon HERE.
Jo-Ann Fabric & Craft Stores also has printable store coupons.
Email Clubs for Freebies and Deals
Applebees–This used to be a great email sign up, but I haven’t received any good deals from them in a long time.
Arbys–Since signing up, I have received coupons for free shakes and sandwiches. Birthday (2016) coupon for a free shake. ***I have been on the email list for a few years now and I receive emails for special coupons every once in awhile. Mostly free shakes or dessert with a sandwich purchase.
Culvers–Right after confirming my email I received a printable coupon for “Buy 1 Get 1 Free Value Basket.” This is an awesome deal. On my birthday I received a free concrete mixer (2015). This year (2016)I received a coupon for a free one-scoop sundae.
IHOP–Lots of deal emails and coupons over the year. Usually for a free Rooty Tooty Fresh and Fruity Pancake meal. Birthday(2016) coupon for free Rooty Tooty meal.
Kohls–Get $5 off your next purchase when you first sign up. Now I mostly get updates on upcoming sales.
Old Chicago-I don’t know when I signed up, but a coupon showed up in my email from them that said I have a free pizza (up to $16 value) for my birthday (2016).
Olive Garden–This e-club has been useful, many times. I get “random” coupons for soup-salad-breadstick discount and on my birthday (2016) I received a free dessert.
Orange Leaf–For my birthday they added $3 to my Ounce Back Card.
Pizza Hut–I receive various coupons from Pizza Hut online. This is one worth having if you eat there a lot.
Pizza Ranch–This is a new sign up for me and right away I received coupons for a few dollars off and free cactus bread and $5 in rewards.
Pepperjax Grill–This place is one of my faves and I don’t get spam from them. I initially signed up last year (2015) and so far have received a free entree (worth $8 or so) for my birthday last year and this year (2016).
Subway–I’ve been participating in the Subway Rewards for a few months. On my birthday they added 20 points to my card. This is equal to a free drink, bag of chips or two cookies.
Texas Roadhouse-Ever since I have signed up for this e-club I have received coupons for a free appetizer at various times during the year. They also send out promo emails about their hours and holiday deals. Each year for my birthday I seem to receive a free sidekick of ribs or appetizer (2014-2016).
JME’s Favorite Apps
Cartwheel-I have saved over $150 in 1 year using this app. It’s fairly easy to use. All money saved is on items I was already getting.
Flipp App-This app is great for checking out store ads and you can “circle” what you want in the ad and find it easy when you go to the store. Only bummer is, no Hy-Vee or Fareway on it (yet).
Out of Milk App-I have used this several times to keep track of shopping lists. You can add things from sale ads to your shopping list. It’s super useful! This app does include local places like Hy-Vee!
JME’s Miscellaneous Saver Tips
If you have a CVS in your area, definitely sign up for their Extra Care Card and have your primary email set-up for updates from them. I am always getting emails for coupons to save me 20-30% my total order. CVS makes it really easy too, by attaching that online coupon to your saver card. No printing required!
Retailmenot.com is one of my favorite online coupon sites. Whenever you are shopping online or going out to eat, do a search on this site and see if there is a coupon available. I have saved hundreds of dollars and found a lot of free shipping codes by checking there first.
Check Valpak.com for local coupons/deals. You may also receive these coupons in the mail already.
