Newspaper insert coupons come out weekly through local and national newspapers. They include coupons for products from diapers to food, and can be a great way to constantly replenish the coupon collection and match coupons up with sales to get items for free, or almost free.
For extreme couponers, these newspaper inserts are one of the main sources of coupons and are used to get tens and even hundreds of itemsfor free. However, most extreme couponers are too frugal to consider buying multiple copies of newspapers and therefore will find ways to get copies of the newspaper inserts for free.
Wondering how you can get multiple copies of these newspaper insert coupons for free? Here are some of the main ways to get multiple copies and take your personal coupon collection to the next level.
Make Friends with the Paperboy
Make friends with the local delivery boy. Chances are that there are going to be extra copies leftover once the newspapers are stuffed and delivered. Many homes don’t want the local papers or junk mail that comes with the newspaper insert and therefore making friends with the local paperboy can help to score upwards of ten copies every week that the copies of the newspapers are released.
ke the Rounds to Local Coffee Shops
Making the rounds to local coffee shops can give an edge when it comes to collecting these coupon booklets full of money written on small pieces of paper. Local coffee shops, restaurants and even fast food joints likely have multiple subscriptions to papers and can therefore allow early risers to head into the shop and find free copies of the newspaper inserts, without having to buy a single paper.
The majority of people don’t see the value in the small scraps of paperthat we call coupons and toss the coupons promptly in the recycle bin once they are dropped off on the doorstep.
Though there are some recycling centers where picking from the dumpsters is considered illegal, there are others where newspaper inserts can be found in the hundreds and is a lawful activity.
Searching through recycle bins doesn’t have the stigma that was once attached, as the recycling bins are filled only with paper in most cases and provide a clean experience to find the coupons that are going to help to snag items for free, or almost free using the coupons.
Using these tips, it can be simple to get multiple copies of the newspaper inserts, allowing them to be matched with sales, double coupon days and in-store promotions to save big on everything from food to household items.
