If you don’t use coupons, you’re throwing your money away. You could be saving anywhere from a few cents to hundreds of dollars on the things you already buy.
For proof, just look at the numbers: 96% of Americans use coupons when shopping. And the total savings from those coupons adds up to an astonishing $3.6 billion annually.
So what’s holding you back from taking full advantage of the power of coupons?
Well, if your main exposure to coupons has been through pop culture (TLC’s “Extreme Couponing,” anyone?), you probably think you need to center your life around hunting for coupons.
But in reality, your coupon quest could take just a couple of minutes — if you have the right resources.
That’s why we’ve compiled this list of the best coupon websites. These sites make it quick and easy to find the coupons you need and start saving big!

The 13 Best Coupon Websites for Online and In-Store Savings
1. Amazon Coupons
What better place to start your coupon search than at the world’s biggest e-commerce website?
You can buy just about anything on Amazon, and with Amazon Coupons, you can save money on just about everything, too. All you need to do is find an item you want and click the “Clip Coupon” button — voila, instant discount!
But by far the best time to use Amazon Coupons is on Prime Day, when thousands of Amazon’s most popular products go on sale. Combine those savings with a coupon and you could be looking at upwards of 50% off everything from TVs to batteries to laundry detergent.
Rakuten, formerly known as Ebates, takes couponing to the next level.
It’s not just a collection of discount codes (though there are plenty of those). With a free Rakuten account, you also earn cash back on purchases from thousands of different retailers, from Verizon to Ace Hardware to Overstock.
And several times a year, Rakuten offers double or even triple cash back. That means an additional 12%+ savings on top of your existing coupon discounts.
Rakuten’s free browser extension ensures that you never miss a cash back opportunity, alerting you when you visit a site that works with Rakuten. It’s a must-have for anyone who’s serious about smart shopping.
If you’ve ever searched for coupons on Google, you’ve probably visited RetailMeNot. It’s one of the world’s biggest coupon sites, and it’s loaded with features that set it apart from the rest of the pack.
For starters, there’s the Deal Finder browser extension, which automatically applies coupon codes on thousands of websites. You don’t have to lift a finger — the extension tests all the available codes and applies the ones that give you the best deal.
Then there’s the RetailMeNot Community, where you can chat with other bargain hunters, share coupon codes and browse user-submitted coupons. It’s great for finding coupons for more obscure sites and discussing discounts with like-minded shoppers.
4. RetailMeNot Everyday
You may know RetailMeNot Everyday by its former name, RedPlum. RedPlum was well-known for its direct mail coupon books, which delivered savings on everyday items to mailboxes around the country.
RetailMeNot Everyday still sends out print coupon books, but it’s also brought modern accessibility to the world of grocery and restaurant coupons. You can find printable and digital coupons for companies like Walmart, Stop & Shop, Chipotle, Panera Bread and more.
New coupons are typically released every Sunday, so RetailMeNot Everyday is well worth checking in on before your weekly grocery run.
Like RetailMeNot Everyday, SmartSource got its start by sending out weekly mailers filled with coupons. Today, it’s one of the best online sources for printable manufacturer’s coupons.
As you browse SmartSource, you can “clip” any coupons you’re interested in, then print them all at once when you’re done. Select retailers also offer the ability to load coupons directly from SmartSource to your store loyalty card for hassle-free savings.
One of the most community-driven coupon sites, Slickdeals doesn’t just offer coupon codes. It’s home to thousands of diehard discount-seekers who share price drops, special offers, rebates, clearance sales and anything else that’s, well, a slick deal.
Being such a strong community has its perks: users often share ways to stack discounts and offers for maximum savings. There’s even a consumer awareness section to keep you informed on recalls, hidden fees and the latest coupon-related news.
A forum-like interface lets you leave comments on any coupons or deals you come across, while the Deal Alerts feature notifies you when savings are available on your desired item.
But if these fancy features aren’t your cup of tea, you can simply search the Slickdeals coupon database and find the best deal for yourself.
Swagbucks is a high-concept coupon website that’s surprisingly addictive. It awards you SB Points for filling out surveys, watching videos, playing games and using coupons.
Every coupon you print earns you an SB Point, but the real savings are found in its online discounts. Use the Swagbucks portal to shop at your favorite retailers and you’ll earn anywhere from 1% to 70% cash back in the form of SB Points — on top of your coupon savings.
When you’ve accumulated enough SB Points, you can exchange them for gift cards or simply trade them for cash via PayPal. It’s couponing taken to the next level.
8. Coupon Cause
What if you could make a difference in the world while saving money with coupons? Well, with Coupon Cause, you can do exactly that.
Coupon Cause has a familiar layout: click on a coupon you’re interested in and you’ll be taken to the retailer, where you can use your code and save money. The difference is that rather than pocketing the commission it makes from the retailer, Coupon Cause donates part of it to charity.
Supported organizations include the CDC Foundation, Feeding America, the World Wildlife Fund and the National Alliance to End Homelessness. With Coupon Cause, your quest to save money can help save lives, too.
It doesn’t get much more straightforward than Coupons.com. This is a one-stop shop for both printable and digital coupons, both store-specific and manufacturer-provided.
You can easily “clip” and print all the coupons you want, and if you link your store loyalty cards to your Coupons.com account, you can load the coupons to them directly. Coupons.com also offers a huge selection of coupon codes for a wide range of websites.
You’ll find plenty of traditional coupon codes on Groupon, but you’ll also find so much more. For years, Groupon has made its name by partnering with local businesses to offer special coupons and discounts.
Enter your zip code and you’ll find tons of local restaurants, hotels, spas, events and shops offering substantial Groupon discounts — often upwards of 50% off. Then just download or print out your chosen Groupon and use it like a regular coupon next time you swing by.
Groupon also sells discounted products in its “Goods” section, and offers discounted travel packages in its “Getaways” section.
11. The Krazy Coupon Lady
If you’re a fan of manufacturer’s coupons, the Krazy Coupon Lady’s coupon database deserves a place in your bookmarks. You can search the database by product type (pet food, milk, shampoo), by brand (Tide, Starbucks, Tyson) or by store (Costco, Home Depot, Whole Foods), making it extremely versatile.
The site’s “Deals” section lets you seek out even more savings. It spotlights big sales, freebie offers and even “extreme couponing” deals for the most hardcore bargain hunters.
Founded by two self-certified crazy coupon ladies, the Krazy Coupon Lady also offers couponing and deal-finding tips, plus a “Brags” section where readers can share their best couponing stories.
Like a hybrid of Coupons.com and Groupon, Savings.com brings you the best online coupon codes as well as local discounts you won’t find anywhere else.
In the “Grocery” section, you’ll find tons of manufacturer’s coupons that you can easily clip and print all at once. The nifty counter at the top of the page keeps track of how much money you’ll save by using your coupons, so you can literally watch the savings add up.
Savings.com also provides weekly circulars for large retailers like CVS, Walgreens, Target and Walmart. This lets you easily keep track of the week’s best deals without having to visit multiple websites.
Honey isn’t quite a coupon website, but you’ll love it all the same. It’s a browser extension that automatically applies coupon codes from around the web, scans for price drops and much more.
With Honey installed, you’ll get a notification every time you check out at a site that’s offering a coupon discount. You won’t need to copy and paste any codes — Honey will try every code it finds and select the one(s) that save you the most money.
If you happen across an item you’d like but want to wait for a price drop, you can add it to your Honey Droplist and get notified as soon as it goes on sale.
And if you’re a big fan of Amazon but hate sifting through all the seller offers, Honey can do the hard work for you and show you the best deal. It even shows you price histories so you can make sure you’re not getting ripped off by bogus “sales.”
Want More Financial Tips?
The average Honey user saves $126 a year by simply installing the extension. It’s truly a must-have for anyone who loves coupons but hates the hassle.
