Scores of coupons can save you £100s. This is a regularly updated list to help you slash serious money off your food shop.
But remember, coupons can be turned down. We aim to ensure all vouchers can be used by everyone, but it's ultimately up to each individual store whether it wants to accept them.
You've no automatic right to have your coupon accepted, and shops sometimes turn them down, so don’t make a special trip - see it as an added extra instead.
Print a coupon from Purina Pro Plan's page to get £3 off Duo Délice dog food by 31 Dec 2014. The coupon’s for packs of 2.5kg or larger. We found the cost of the 2.5kg pack to be around £14.95. Can’t be used with other offers.
For starters, make sure your printer is on and has enough paper! Many coupons use Adobe Flash Player software to print, so download the latest Flash software.
If you have a pop-up blocker installed on your web browser, disabling it may help. You may be asked to install a coupon software application before the voucher will print; just follow the instructions to do this.
Finally, coupons often work much better in the Internet Explorer (IE) browser than they do in others. So even if you use another browser, like Firefox or Chrome, have a copy of IE just for coupons.
Coupons are everywhere. Root through junk mail, scout around tills, rip them out of magazines - they all add up. Plus keep an eye on this site's Printable money-off coupons thread.
The Magazine Offers Thread is another excellent resource, where MoneySavers kindly catalogue all coupons and offers in current magazines. If the magazine costs more than the coupon's worth, it's not worth it. But if you were buying your fave glossy anyway, you're quids in.
Newspapers are an especially lucrative source of coupons, often worth £2 and up - a decent return on a 40p rag. You can often grab as many papers as you like and use the same coupons again and again (as long as it's on different shopping trips).
Every day, dedicated MoneySavers update the ‘Daily Newspaper Summary' with all the coupons from that day's papers. To find the info, go to the Discount codes ‘n' voucher Forum board and look at the NEWSPAPER SUMMARY thread.
Coupons from supermarkets’ in-store magazines usually only work in that specific store. So a coupon to save £1 on Pampers from the Asda magazine usually won’t work in Tesco.
If a special offer item is out of stock, many supermarkets will give you a voucher entitling you to the same deal at a later date. Read a full 'how to' in the Supermarket Savings guide.
Some self-scanning checkouts let you scan multiple coupons, even when you're not buying the relevant products. These machines operate based on trust, so by deliberately using incorrect coupons without permission you could be accused of fraud.
If you want to use coupons, be upfront and give them to the cashier. Then you're being honest, and it's the store's decision whether to allow it.
You can usually only use one coupon per person, so those found printing out and using multiple coupons in different names or email addresses could be arrested and charged with fraud. Always check the terms and conditions yourself. Discuss, comment, share other deals
