Couponing 101 ~ Printable Coupons

As I'm sure you know, weekly inserts are not the only place to get coupons.  Many companies offer coupons on their websites or Facebook pages.  In addition there are sites such as Smart Source or Coupons.com that have coupons available for you to print.  These coupons are usually reset each month, meaning you can print them again at the beginning of each month.

For a majority of the coupons you find online, you are allowed to print TWO copies of each coupon from one computer.  In some cases you're only allowed one.  If you try to print more than the number allowed you will get the message that the maximum number of prints has been reached.  If you have more than one computer in your house, you can print two from EACH computer.

One thing I have learned in the 18 months I've been couponing is if you see an online coupon that you KNOW you can use, print it.  The manufacturers have a certain number of coupons that can be printed and when that limit is reached, no more will print.  And who knows what the limit is for each item.  So if it's something you know for a fact you'll buy it's better to print the coupon when you find it rather than miss out on a deal because the number of prints had been reached.

Any info about printables that I missed?  Tell us about it in the comments section!
