Finding coupons in the UK isn’t as easy now as it once was. But even so, there are still ways you can get your hands on some to save you money by couponing. 

If you’re as hooked on the TV show Extreme Couponing as me, this is the blog for you.

Back in the height of the couponing days, you’d have them coming from everywhere… online, newspapers, magazines, apps and more.

My biggest grocery shop was over £600 worth of items which I got for 4p with coupons. How’s that for Extreme Couponing in the UK?

It’s hard to say why a lot of them aren’t around any more, but there are still ways to save money with coupons in the UK.

I’ve rounded up all the places that you can get them below, and hopefully it’ll save you a little bit of money on your supermarket shop.

Printable coupons UK

Once upon a time there were 4 or 5 different websites you could go on and print out coupons from. One by one, they have been fading away, and now only a few still stand.

It’s worth noting for these, you’ll need to install a piece of software to your computer called ‘CouponPrinter.exe’.

Don’t worry – it’s safe to download, and is used to accurately print out barcodes and for tracking number of prints on each device.

Caring Everyday

If you’re after products from the Johnson & Johnson range, Caring Everyday is where you can get coupons for them.

At the moment, there are 8 coupons on there – majority for illness remedies like Calpol and Imodium, but with one coupon for kids shampoo.

MoneySavingExpert 

My former place of work has a coupons page, which is kept up to date with coupons from brand websites. Not all of them are printable coupons, so you’ll have to wade through the other deals to find them.

Compliment brands for coupons

It sounds a bit strange, but bare with me on this. If you really like a brand or a company – have you ever tried writing to them to tell them so?

If you send them a really nice email saying how much you love their brand – or even ask for free samples or coupons – you may actually get some back.

I’ve done this multiple times in the past, and got £100s worth of coupons and samples. The more effort you put into writing to the company – the better.

I suggest getting creative like sending a love letter or a poem. I once sent a 4 line poem to Innocent drinks over email, and it went something like this:

Innocent, Innocent, you are a dream,
No other drink could be so supreme,
Oozing with joy, bursting with flavour,
Innocent drinks, you are my saviour.

This one poem got me £20 worth of coupons back in the post, for just 5 minutes of work! Told you it sounds crazy, but it could pay off in spades.

If you’re not a wordsmith like me, you could send birthday cards if it’s a company’s birthday, get your kids/grandkids to draw a picture, or get creative and write a song.

Brands love fan interaction like this, and it’s something they could either use for promotion or on social media. But also in return, you’ll get something back.

Cashback apps

Coupons in the UK are now going digital. The best place to find some of the biggest discounts now, is right in the palm of your hand. 

These supermarket coupons are in the form of cashback, so instead of redeeming them at the till, you get money back after you’ve purchased.

Here are the main cashback apps that are worth knowing about:

Shopmium

If you’ve read my full Shopmium review, you’ll know that this is the best app for getting freebies. 

At the time of writing you can get a free Ben & Jerry’s ice cream tub, free water and free yoghurt – but you’ll have to buy it first and claim back later).

At the moment, there is £79 worth of cashback to claim from Shopmium, and the best part is, you can stack cashback with coupons. 

If you have an item with a physical coupon for, use it when paying, and you can still get cashback (which will mean double the saving). This gets into the ‘extreme couponing UK’ territory – and it means it saves you more money.

Airtime Rewards

If you’re not signed up to Airtime Rewards, you’re missing out on free cash. Once you link your cards to the app, every time you spend at a retailer with cashback on, it’ll give you money, and you don’t have to do a thing.

If you’re spending in the supermarket, you can get up to 5% back when you do your shopping at Waitrose (in store or online), or 10% back when shopping at Morrisons (in store or online).

You can of course stack this again, so if you get £100 of shopping in Morrisons and use £20 worth of coupons, then you’ll get £8 in cashback from Airtime Rewards.

Tesco Magazine

Each month, there are coupons to be found in the free Tesco magazine. I write a blog around what coupons are in the magazine each month (see July/August’s).

They appear on the inside front cover, so if you see one that you like, you can rip it out and use it straight away if you wanted. As the magazine is free – you can pick up as many as you want too.

There have been some great coupons in the magazine previously, including a free multipack of crisps and free Coke Zero… so it’s worth keeping an eye out.

Those are some of the best ways to find coupons in the UK. If you don’t already know, I have written a book called ‘Secrets to Saving: The Ultimate UK Couponing Guide‘ which is packed full of many more tips that this to save you money on your supermarket shopping.

If you’re a money saver like me… there’s also a way to get it for free.

I hope this blog was useful and you start saving a bit of cash on your supermarket shopping. Please let me know if you make a saving or score some coupons.

What has been your biggest discount by using coupons? I’d love to know in the comments below, on Twitter @Jordon_Cox or on Facebook.
