Coupons & More
Need more coupons? The biggest source for coupons is the Sunday paper, however, here are a few ways to get printable coupons.

Ecoupons are great for people who don’t like to clip coupons. All you have to do is upload your shopper card information(one time) then go to the site, upload coupons to your card, swipe your card at the store, and see the savings! Some great places to find Ecoupons are:
- Cellfire-these coupons can be uploaded to your KingSooper/Kroger card.
- P&G Esaver-coupons from Proctor & Gamble
- Upromise-Join UPromise and Save for College- use at Albertson’s, Safeway, CVS, Rite Aid, Kroger/King Soopers
SavingsStar-use in addition to your paper coupons and redeem credits for cash or gift cards- can be used at Albertson’s, CVS, Rite Aid and Kroger/King Soopers Stores
Be sure to always check DenverMetroMoms for printable coupons as well. Often times there are coupons released that aren’t on any of the sources listed above. I try to post printable coupons as I find them.

Ebates- a “shop through” site
If you are buying items from the markdown areas (orange or red tag) separate them from the rest of your order and notify the cashier that you are buying markdowns. Safeway does not cover the original UPC when they mark down an item so if the cashier scans the original UPC rather than the mark down sticker you will pay full price.
Most ‘in ad” coupons require a minimum purchase of $10. The $10 minimum is a PRE coupon price so you don’t have to actually spend $10, just reach $10 before applying your coupons.
Safeway will accept competitors coupons with an expiration date and can decline “Free Item” coupons. I usually take my “Free Item” coupons to Target.
The coupon policy states that you cannot use a coupon on a free item (such as a BOGO sale).
There are usually mark down areas towards the back of the store, one in an end cap in the freezer department, one in the meat department and one in dairy.
Safeway accepts it’s own coupons which you can load online rather than clipping out of the circular. They also participate with Upromise, SavingsStar, Shortcuts and P&GEsaver. They no longer accept Cellfire as of this moment.
Insider secret- despite policy changes it has been possible to get overages when combining ecoupons and paper coupons. There may still be a quirk in the system and it is unpredictable. I have had it happen a few times, especially when buying marked down dairy products or P&G items. If you should be so lucky to get a negative balance just grab a Safeway gift card and have them put the overage on it for your next trip.
Kroger Coupon Policy load Kroger ecoupons
King Soopers is affiliated with Kroger stores and will have similar sales. There are a lot of “Buy 10 Mega Events” which net free or very cheap products. The issue is that if you buy 9 or one item does not get scanned (happened to me yesterday) you will pay full price for everything. One reader suggested bringing your own shopping bags to the events and putting 10 sale items in each so you don’t loose count. King Soopers gives you $.05 per bag you bring and does not accept competitors coupons.
The coupon policy restricts you to using three like coupons per transaction. You can buy as many items as you like, but can only use three same coupons. I have bought six items in a transaction, using coupons on each, but they would have to be from two different sources, such as three from Red Plum and three from Coupons.com. There is also a policy that the coupon can not exceed 75% of the items value. I have never seen that rule enforced but it leaves it up to the cashiers discretion. Kroger does not offer as many markdowns as Safeway but in our area at least has much better produce.
King Sooper/Kroger stores will allow you to use Cellfire, Upromise, Shortcuts and SavingsStar ecoupons. Be mindful when you save the coupons though because if you purchase an item with your loyalty card you will have to take the ecoupon reduction rather than your paper coupon, even if the paper coupon is higher. You may want to ask to have your paper coupons scanned prior to swiping your loyalty card. Our elementary school has a program to purchase King Sooper gift cards with a percentage going back to your school of choice. King Soopers in this area doubles coupons to $1 and has a pony ride for the kids and samples in the produce area and a free kids cookie. They also offer a TV cart to keep your kids entertained while you shop. You can earn a $25 grocery gift card for every prescription you transfer to their pharmacy. King Soopers send out a mailing tailored to what you have been buying with your loyalty card. I get a free Cheerios coupon every few months from them.
Target will allow Target.com coupons, Target electronic coupons and will price match to other stores. This is helpful when the grocery store has a great advertised price and you can stack a manufacturer coupon with a Target.com printable coupon. You can get $.05 deducted from your order for each bag you bring in. The coupon policy states that coupons may be adjusted down- for example you have a Degree coupon for $1 off any size and you buy a travel size for $.97 they would adjust the coupon to $.97. But, unfortunately at the stores I visit, the cashiers get that deer in headlights look and can’t handle the pressure. It’s largely left to their discretion which is a huge pain for the couponers. It can be “hit or miss” with shopping at Target but you can find some really good bargains. Find a cashier that treats you right and then seek them out when you shop.
You can find great deals on meat- if you find a markdown sticker on meat you are supposed to be given the credit for each sticker- if there are two $2 off stickers on it you should get a total of $4 off.
Wal-Mart- you will see that I hesitate to mention the M word on this site. I have had so many rotten experiences there I choose to pretend this place does not exist. Do not go out of your way to assemble coupons based on someone else’s deal. The prices are totally inconsistent from store to store. However, there are a lot of reasons to shop Wal-Mart. They price match. At the store in my area you can use coupons at the self check out. No one comes over to critique them and scrutinize you- you just scan them and put them in the box. The first time I tried that was the first time I ever left the store happy. Yay-self checkout!
Wal-Mart does let you get an overage on a couponed item. For example- if you buy an item for $.97 and you pay for it with a $1 off coupon you will get a $.03 overage towards the rest of your order.
