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.
For more ways to save, read the Supermarket Savings guide and Shopping Discount Vouchers deals list.

What is Shopitize?
It's a free coupon app that gives you up to 50% cashback on grocery brands in most UK supermarkets.
How do I get it?
Download and install the app (you'll need an Android or iPhone). Once you have selected a coupon, take a photo of your receipt using the app and you'll get the cashback straight into your Shopitize account. You may have to verify the barcode to make sure it is the right product.
Once you've reached the minimum redemption of £5, you can then withdraw your cashback either by PayPal or via BACS to a bank account.
You can use Shopitize when you are offline as long as you are already signed in. Anything you do offline will be uploaded when you do go online.
What's on offer till Tue 3 Mar:
If you're a student with an NUS Extra card, you can get 10% off food and drink (exceptions are listed below) at more than 2,800 participating Co-operative Food stores. Just show your card at the checkout to get the discount.
The NUS Extra card is available to all students aged over 16 years (including distance learners and vocational students). It costs £12 and is valid for 12 months from the date of purchase. With your NUS Extra card, you can get discounts at loads of stores, including Asos, Warehouse and Domino's. This is the first time an NUS Extra card can get you discounts on groceries.
Co-ops are convenience stores, so it won't always be as cheap as the supermarket giants, however you'll often find some really good offers - especially if you combine them with coupons.
How it works
Morrisons' Fuel Saver deal gives 1p/litre off petrol, diesel or LPG for every £10 of gift cards bought in-store.
There are 38 retailers to buy gift cards for, including Homebase, Debenhams, Currys, PC World, Next, House of Fraser, Halfords, and iTunes, plus new retailers TK Maxx, Oasis, Warehouse and Waterstones. The offer's ongoing, but doesn't include Morrisons' own gift cards.
If there's a large purchase you are going to make anyway - eg, £500 on a computer at PC World or a garden shed at Homebase - get it via buying the gift cards and you'll bag 50p/litre off.
If you bought £1,400 of gift cards, it'd effectively make a £1.40/litre tank FREE. Morrisons has also told us there's no limit per transaction on the gift cards, and you can split any amount above this into a second purchase to get a voucher for a second fill-up. Petrol vouchers are valid for 63 days from the issue date.
Use gift cards quickly
Gift cards are non-refundable, and it isn't a good idea to put money on the card to drip-spend over six months. Though most of those mentioned here are big, safe companies, if the firm goes bust you'll probably lose the cash, so ensure you minimise the time between buying and redemption.
It's also worth noting third party retailers (Morrisons in this case) don't have any responsibility to refund you if a gift card's retailer goes into administration. See the Beware gift vouchers MSE News story. Gift cards are generally valid for about two years, but always check.

MSE UPDATE: From Mon 9 Feb, you'll no longer be allowed to get your free drink in the cafe unless you're buying something as well. To get round this, use the self-service machines - where you'll be able to get the freebie as normal without spending any money.
Sign up for a myWaitrose loyalty card (click 'Join myWaitrose now' on the left-hand green bar) and get a free regular hot tea or coffee in-store every day from the self service machine. Choose from Americano, cappuccino, latte, tea, mocha or espresso (decaf options are also available in some stores).
If you haven't got one already, sign up for a myWaitrose card using the link above and you'll receive it within five weeks. However, as soon as you've signed up, you can register your details and print a paper version, which you can show in-store to get this offer. Then simply walk in and swipe your card.
If you're the type who prefers the feel of actual paper in their hand rather than a screen, you can get a 'free' newspaper (mainly broadsheets, listed below) when you spend £5 in-store at Waitrose on weekdays or £10 at the weekend (because weekend papers are more expensive).
The cost of the paper gets taken off your final bill when you flash/scan your myWaitrose card. You must have a myWaitrose loyalty card to get the deal. If you're not a member, sign up online or in-store - it takes up to 5 weeks for the card to be posted to you and temporary cards are not accepted.
Papers included are The Daily Telegraph, The Sunday Telegraph, Daily Mail, The Mail on Sunday, Scottish Daily Mail, Scottish Mail on Sunday, The Guardian, The Observer, The Times and The Sunday Times.
You can only do this once a day.
See the MyWaitrose page for more details on how to get a free card.
For over 18s year olds only. Excludes petrol stations, Shell and Welcome Break, Yateley, Goldsworth Park and Belgravia stores.
Excluded items (that would make up the £5/£10) include flowers, entertaining, home and hampers, infant formula, tobacco, stamps, mobile top ups, e-Top up vouchers, lottery tickets, gift vouchers, cash back, car park charges and fuel.
Before spending, use Martin's Mantras. If you answer 'NO' to any, Don't buy!
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.
