Get coupons by snail mail

There are tons of free printable coupons as well as digital coupons that we can load onto our savings cards, but what about those of us who want to enjoy additional savings or don’t have a printer to print coupons? Good news, you can request coupons by snail mail, and here are the websites I know of that offer snail mail coupons:

RedPlum: Sometimes you’ll find RedPlum inserts in your Sunday newspapers, but if you don’t buy the Sunday papers or you’d like additional RedPlum coupons, you can sign up for The Red Plum Mail package. Be sure you select “add to list.”

Bounce: When Bounce has coupons available by snail mail, you’ll find the link on their “promotions” page.

P&G Brand Sampler: You’ll have to register to get the free Home Made Simple coupon booklet via snail mail. Registration is free, and as a P&G Everyday Solutions member myself, I can honestly tell you that taking the time to register is well worth it. Their coupon booklets are usually filled with great savings!

Minute Maid Coupons by Snail Mail: Residents from the United States and Canada can enter their details in the form on the linked page to request money-saving coupons from Minute Maid.

Tide: When Tide has coupons available, you’ll find them on their “coupons” page.

Another Way to Obtain Coupons by Snail Mail

Google the manufacture’s name to see if they have a website, and if they do, contact them through their website asking if they could send you coupons by snail mail. Before asking for the coupons, state that you’ve tried and liked their product(s), or that you’d like to try their product(s). You can do this for restaurants as well.

I’ll add to this list when I discover new resources, so check back often, bookmark this page or follow me on Twitter for updates. Also, if you know of any other websites where frugal shoppers can sign up/register to get coupons by snail mail, let me know by leaving a comment, and I may even add it to this list giving you credit for the referral. :)

  • I registered to get the free Home Made Simple coupon booklet via snail mail but that option is not available. Is there another way to get it?

  • Nevermind, I found it! Thanks!

  • I really, really like the “another way to obtain coupons” suggestion. If a customer is straight up and up front with me and asks for a special coupon price, I’m much more likely to listen rather than someone trying to deviously get a favorable price. And, actually, I’ve done this myself — I’ll contact a company, *compliment* the company with sincerity, and more times than not, I’ve received coupons in the mail! For example, one local grocery store I go to has a fantastic produce department. (Being a vegetarian, having appealing produce is important to me.) Without expecting anything in return, I sent a quick note to the company’s “comments” page and voila! I got a nice coupon! Anyway, thank you for a useful article. Hopefully at least part of what I wrote here is something you find interesting or helpful. Thank you.

  • This thread is for freebies – by definition, that means things that you can get WITHOUT paying for them. Please do not post “10% off”, “buy 2 get 1 free” type of offers, as these are NOT free.

    • Roxanne, I think you misunderstand the Living Frugally site. It's not just for freebies. I also list deals as well as information to help individuals, families and small business owners save money.

      This page that you've commented on is not the freebie listings. This one is an article with advice on getting coupons by snail mail. The freebie listings page can be found at http://livingfrugally.info/current-freebies/. Or you can scroll to the very top of each page and click on "freebies" from the navigation menu. In addition to freebies, there's also a deals page, and that's where I include the discounts and other savings offers such as the ones you're referring to.

      I hope this helps you understand the site better, and I thank you for visiting and commenting. If you have any other concerns or questions, don't hesitate to reply back, and I'll be happy to assist you.

  • I do not have time to sit and send email after email to get coupons from the places that will actually mail them, nor do I own a printer. I don’t see how a person is supposed to do all this and still have time to actually shop. As for the Sunday paper, their coupons are a joke. What is the point of getting a discount on a product that is higher priced than the same item in a cheaper different brand? I don’t see any savings when u can buy a can of food at $.65 and u find u can get $.25 off a can that costs u $1.00. That makes no sense at all. I am so confused. Somebody explain it all to me. PLEASE!!!

    • Sara, First, thanks for visiting my blog! Sorry you felt confused even after reading this article. I do understand what you mean, though. I don't spend too much time sending emails for coupons either. I usually only send emails to the companies that I actually do buy the product from, and those are few, because as you just stated, many times the generic brands are cheaper than the name brands, and most of the time, there's not much difference in the product. There are a few name brands that I will buy over the generic, though, because the name brand is actually a better quality.

      Since you mentioned that the generic brands are still cheaper even when you have a coupon for a name brand, I wanted to let you know that I have a post I'll be writing and publishing about that. Keep watching my site for that post. Also, continue visiting me or subscribe to receive update notifications as I'll have more living frugally advice that may help you make sense of the things you're confused about.

  • This is a great tip, especially to those fresh to the blogosphere.

    Short but very accurate information… Thanks for sharing this one.

    A must read post!
