Top 10 Grocery and Drug Store Coupon Sites

Update: 6-24-08 2:58pm:

I used manufacture and store coupons at Walgreens today and purchased household items such as foil, t.p., paper towels, etc. Here's the breakdown:

Walgreens Coupon Savings: $16.47
Walgreens Advertised Savings: $18.64
Manufacturer Coupon Savings: $ 6.50

Total Savings: $41.61
Total Bill: $77.21

It is rare that I buy anything at the grocery or drug store without a coupon. Below is my Top 10 Grocery and Drug Store Coupon Sites:

1. The Coupon Mom
2. Penny Pincher Gazette
3. Eversave Coupons
4. The Coupon Cabin
5. Judy's Book
6. Coupons
7. Walgreens (rebates too)
8. Retail Me Not Thank you Mary for this link.
9. The Coupon Finder
10. The Grocery Game (fee-based)

Don't forget about the Fuel Perks at Giant Eagle and Kroger. My recommendation is to stick with one or the other grocery store and buy nearly everything there. At Giant Eagle, we buy gift cards and do ALL of our other shopping with them. That way, we get fuel perks for the purchases at other stores. IE: Kohls, Joanns, etc.

6-24-08 5:33pm: We had $2.60 in Fuel Perks from Giant Eagle and filled up a full-size van for $20.00 today.

Since January, we have saved $571.00 on gas through Giant Eagle Fuel Perks.


Good luck and be sure to check back as I'll be updating this post often.
