One of the most common questions and frustrations in couponing is ‘missing coupons’. I’ll tell you that there’s a coupon in a certain insert and you search through the insert many, many times and can’t find it.
Manufacturers think of coupons as part of their advertising budget. They have areas that they want to target or a certain number of people that they want to reach. Generally, their money goes further in larger cities, so the big cities get more coupons.
How can I get these coupons?
You can order them online. If a coupon is in the weekly insert previews, but you didn’t get it in your paper, somebody else somewhere did get the coupon, so go online and see if you can find it. There are a lot of sites that have coupons you can order. After you open your paper on Sunday and see what you are missing that you wanted, go ahead and order them.
Never order a printable coupon online! You don’t know its history or if it’s an orginal or a copy. Also, if you choose to buy coupons on eBay, look at the reputation of the seller just as you would if you were purchasing something else.
