I am new to couponing and was wondering if you could tell me where the best places to get coupons would be, who doubles coupons in colorado springs, and does the Gazette offer coupons on other days besides Sunday? Thanks so much for you help!
Hi, Jaime! Welcome to couponing – you’re in for a fun ride! :) Here’s the answers to your questions:
Where’s the best place to get coupons?
I would encourage you to subscribe to the Denver Post for the best newspaper insert coupons. They have more/better coupons than the Gazette (though you can subscribe to the Gazette for $1/year which is totally worth it). You can see some comparisons of the different newspaper’s inserts here.
Then, I would start printing coupons for products you think you might use – we’ve got a lot of printable coupon websites listed in our Printable Coupons Resource Center, and it’s updated daily!
Besides that, there are other places to get coupons: on product packaging, in little red “blinkie” machines at the stores, and the “catalina” coupons that are printed at the checkout.
Who doubles coupons in Colorado Springs?
Safeway and King Soopers both double coupons every day. Both double “up to $1.00″, which means that any coupon below $1.00 in face value will be doubled up to $1.00 at checkout. For example:
- $0.25 coupons double to $0.50
- $0.50 coupons double to $1.00
- $0.75 coupons double to $1.00
Albertson’s only doubles coupons periodically, but when they do, they usually triple and quadruple them as well – for example:
- $0.25 coupons quadruple up to $1.00
- $0.40 coupons up to $1.00
You can read lots more about the coupon policies at our local stores on the Store Coupon Policies Page.
Does the Gazette have coupons on days other than Sunday?
The Gazette doesn’t usually have coupons on any days other than Sunday; however, on occasion the Wednesday paper will have an extra insert in it. This extra insert is almost always a duplicate of the RedPlum insert from the previous Sunday.
