Yes, you can still clip those coupons but with today’s technology to save money, you have other ways of getting and using coupons too. The internet has opened up a new way to get coupons and all you need is your computer, the internet, and a printer.
There are many sites that have new coupons every month and you can easily print them and use them. No clipping required! Companies like Betty Crocker and Pillsbury have coupons for their products. At coupon sites, you just check the coupons you want and print them.

When you order online, you should always check for free shipping codes. Saving on your shipping costs can be done by checking out the many sites that have free shipping codes. You can get free shipping on contacts, purchases from Nordstrom, pet supplies, and many other places. Amazon offers free shipping on many items also. The sites often have promo codes for saving on purchases also.

Using technology to save money on shipping by checking for codes before ordering is easy to do. If you don’t find a free shipping code on the site, just go do a Google search. Type in the business name you want free shipping or discounts from and then type in ‘free shipping’ or ‘coupon codes’ and you will be surprised how many of them have such deals.
