Seattle Times Smart Source inserts

The Seattle Times Smart Source coupon insert DOES contain more coupons then what we get in the Tri-City Herald. The cost is $2 at the gas stations and while they don't carry the Red Plum coupon insert (Tacoma Tribune does) I still think it's worth the $2 price.

Here are few coupons that the TCH SS insert did not have:
  • Windex products - $1 off any 2
  • Windex Multi-Surface product - $1 off any
  • Bic Dispoable Shaver - B1G1F
  • Spam single - B1G1F
  • Scrubbing Bubble products (six different coupons)
There are many more coupons in TST that that the TCH did not get so yes, it's worth heading out today and picking up one or two more copies of TST. I picked up one copy this morning at the gas station to see if getting more later today is worth it. The Scrubbing Bubbles coupons make it worth it in my pocketbook since I use that exclusively in my bathrooms.

Where to get coupons

BEST PLACE: The Sunday newspaper!

In stores:

Blinkies – Found on various store aisles these little machines spit out coupons as you pull them out. Most blinkies have little lights that blink hence the name.

Catalinas – Receipt-like coupons printed at the register. Not all stores have Catalinas (such as WinCo). These are typically NOT printed on the back of the register receipt.

Hang/Wine Tags – Found around the neck of a bottle with a little piece of string or rubber band.

Peelies – Coupons found on certain products that peel away from the product.

Tearpads – Coupons on a tear away pad. Typically found in a display and not directly on the product.

Other ways:

Home mailers - sign up for products online or even contact a company to either complain or complement their products. Click here for a blog with over 200 links to companies that will mail you coupons!

Internet coupons - There are many places online that you can print coupons from. See links below for printable online coupons.

Magazines – Pretty much all magazines will have coupons in it. Better Homes & Gardens, Sunset, Parenting, Working Mother are a few. The BEST magazine with coupons is All You magazine.
