IMG_4443Many of you asked about using a coupon clipping service to help increase your coupon stash. I’ve already mentioned 10 Tips to Increase Your Coupon Stash, but if you want to get even more coupons, then you might want to look into a coupon clipping service.

One thing to remember is that when you use coupon clipping services, you aren’t buying the coupon since that is illegal. What you are paying for is the cost per coupon for the service to collect, clip and mail the coupons to you.

So what services are available?

  • The Coupon Clippers – Flat $.50 per order fee with a minimum order of $3.
  • Ebay – Just search for the coupon you are looking for. Watch for FREE shipping though, since some will charge more for shipping.
  • Taylortown Preview – Coupons for less than $1/1 are .05 each unless otherwise noted on the coupon list. Coupons for $1/1 are .10 each. Coupons for more than $1/1 are 10% of the face value of the coupon.

There are many other coupon clipping services out there, but these are a few of the ones I’ve heard most about that have a good reputation. When you are looking at these services, make sure you find out how much you are paying for the coupon, how much the shipping is, and if there are any additional fees.

Have I ever used a coupon clipping service? No – I haven’t because I find other ways to get multiple inserts and because there really are a lot of printable coupons available, so I haven’t found the need. But I know many people do use these services.

Don’t forget you can use the Coupon Database to locate available coupons.

I’d love to hear your thoughts – do you use a coupon clipping service? What do you like about it?

    while I agree there are a lot of options to increase your coupon stash, I have found clipping services to be useful. I do monthly freezer cooking with a group of friends and I’m in charge of doing the shopping. So, sometimes I need a lot of a particular coupon to score the best deal. Plus, I don’t get the red plum insert and therefore I miss out on those coupons as well. But, I’ve found that because of the admin/shipping charges, it’s not economical unless I order a lot of coupons. So, I try to load up when I do buy.

    I use The Q Hunter because she’s based in Cinci and the turnaround is rather quick for me to get them in Indy. She gives a bulk discount as well, so that works out for me.

    I had ask for a clipping about Ivory Soap coupons , since they were out I ask to e-mail when they come in. Got the e-mail when I went to order they no longer offer than. Was not happy. If they want to keep customer happy gives a few days some of us don’t live on the computer 24 /7. Our town does not offer good coupons on Sunday 1 out every 3 have no coupons and at $1.25 each not worth.

    Hi Beth, have you tried some of the other coupon clipping services? There are several out there, and I’m sure you could find one that suits you better.

    Beth,

    I know a lot of people who just buy the whole insert from a clipping service. I think they usually run at about 80 cents an insert, so that might be more economical than buying a paper that doesn’t even have inserts. Might be worth a try.

    I have been searching my area (Nashville, TN) to find a cheap way to get more inserts from our Sunday paper. $1 each is the best I could find. What do you suggest to find multiple inserts?

    I use the following coupon clipping service because they have Manufacturers coupons, personalized bundles and always free shipping
