Snail Mail Coupons

These days, there are tons of free printable and digital coupons as well as cashback apps to help you save money on groceries and household essentials. Being the frugal shopper that you are, though, you want to enjoy additional savings, right? Furthermore, what if you don't have a printer to print coupons? No problem, you don't have to print snail mail coupons, because they come to you via postal mail. Now that's something worth going to your mailbox for! 😉

Even if you do get coupons online, cashback with money-saving apps and have a printer, getting snail mail coupons is a bonus that could even allow you to maximize your savings. Naturally, you'll have to put forth some effort by requesting the snail mail coupons. However, it's not a lot of effort. Just a minute or two to fill out a quick form or send an email is all.

Companies That Offer Snail Mail Coupons to Help You Save Money on Their Products

4C Foods: Fill out the form to get coupons for 4C products. According to their website, the coupons should arrive in your mailbox within three to four weeks.

Abreva: Enter your information in the form to receive a $1 off coupon for Abreva cream.

RedPlum: These don't come via snail mail, but they are coupons you won't have to print. Just enter your address to find out where you can find RedPlum coupon books in your area.

Bayer: Request a coupon for the following brand products: A&D, Afrin, Aleve, Alka-Seltzer, Bayer, Claritin, Midol and several others.

Another Way to Obtain Snail Mail Coupons

If there are certain brands that you love and buy often but don't see them in the aforementioned list, search for the brand name on your favorite search engine to see if they have a website. If your search is successful, visit their site and look for their contact form or information. Then reach out to them and ask if they could mail you some of their coupons. Before asking for the snail mail coupons, let them know that you've tried and liked their products and usually buy them often.

Maybe you're familiar with a brand but have yet to try it. No problem, you can search for those brands as well. Then when you contact the company asking for snail mail coupons, let them know you'd like to try their product(s).

In addition to products, you can search for and contact restaurants. You'd be surprised how many companies will offer you coupons to get (or keep) you as their customer.

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. Additionally, maybe you offer a product or service. If so, and you're willing to send snail mail coupons for a chance to get new customers or clients, contact me with the information on how frugal shoppers can request to receive paper coupons from you via the postal mail service. After you reach out to me and I get all the information I need, I'll include your company in this resource list free of charge.

  1. 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?

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

    1. 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 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.

      Blessings and happy savings! – Misti Sandefur, Founder & Editor of Living Frugally

        Misti, it's nice to meet you! My name is Phylicia Robinson, and I have two little ones (a newborn!!!! :D) I want to live frugally, but I don't know where to start! Do you have any tips on where I can start to begin using coupons? I'm lost!

        1. Phylicia, nice to meet you as well, and welcome to Living Frugally! Congrats on your newborn! With two little ones you've come to the right place to learn how to save money. 🙂

          My post, Tips From a Frugal Coupon Mom, Wife and Caregiver, may be able to help you with additional advice on using coupons. You can also start with printable coupons, and as stated in this article, request coupons via snail mail.

          I plan to share several more articles with couponing and living frugally advice, so stay tuned. If you want to be notified the moment I publish a new article, you're welcome to subscribe to my free updates, and then everytime I publish a new article or savings offer it will be sent to the email address you subscribe with.

          If you have any more questions, don't hesitate to ask. Best of luck to you with your little ones, and happy saving!

  4. 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!!!

    1. 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.

  5. 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!

  6. Thanks for sharing your thoughts. I really appreciate your efforts and I will be waiting for your next post. Thanks once again.

  7. Right here is the right blog for anyone who hopes to find out about this topic. You know so much its almost hard to argue with you (not that I actually will need to. HaHa). You certainly put a brand new spin on a subject which has been written about for decades. Great stuff, just great!

  8. Aw, this was a really good post. Spending some time and actual effort to make a very good article… but what can I say… I hesitate a whole lot and don’t seem to get nearly anything done.

    1. Larry, sorry, I don't mail the coupons. To get them via snail mail, you need to go to each brand's website and sign up for them there. In the article above, just click on the brand's name to visit their website. Each link opens in a new window/tab.
