Coupon Websites

When looking for senior discounts, be careful not to overlook one of the oldest sources of savings - coupons. Though clipping your way through Sunday papers and mail circulars just to save 25 cents on a can of soup might not sound like an alluring prospect, many Internet sites offer meaningful discounts on everything from travel to electronics, as well as your favorite brand of chicken noodle soup.

Online coupon sites are all free, and their searchability makes it much easier for you to find the deals you're looking for.

About.com features a clearinghouse of coupon providers that give you access to discounts on items that traditionally appeared in newspaper coupon inserts. While you're there, be sure to check out About's comprehensive "freebies" section. Click here: http://www.about.com

For discounts on big ticket items, try your luck at Coupon Mountain. Both sites provide you with printable coupons for in-store purchases and promotional codes for online sales. These sites cover thousands of retailers, making it easy to save as much as 25% on non-sale purchases at retailers like the Gap, Gateway Computers, or Overstock.com. Coupon Mountain: http://www.couponmountain.com
Coupon Cabin:
http://www.couponcabin.com

If you're ready to act fast, Coupon-Codes carries limited-time coupons and information on sales at many retailers. The coupons on this site often expire quickly, but checking back regularly can land you some great deals. The site also hosts several forums where users can post bargains as well as detailing "the catch" when an offer appears too good to be true. Click here: http://coupon-codes.net

ElderCarelink provides free helpful information an array of elder care service providers varying from Financial Planning and Personal Emergency Response to Home Care and Assisted Living Facilities. The detailed questionnaire on ElderCarelink's web page allows you to specifically detail your or a loved one's elder care needs, then puts you directly in touch with local providers who are able to help. Click here.


While coupon sites give you access to an array of savings opportunities, you should be wary of sites that require registration. Such sites can fill your inbox with a lot of junk mail. You should also be careful about signing up for the newsletters offered by most of these sites. While they sometimes give you valuable information, they may often feature items of limited interest or thinly veiled ads for their sponsors.

If, however, you want your coupons to come to you, Flamingo World lets you sign up for e-mail notification when particular retailers offer discounts. The site also has user forums in addition to a section listing items that have recently been marked down. Click here: http://www.flamingoworld.com

Finally, Amazing Bargains has many of the same features as other coupon sites, but it also has incredible deals on magazines. Using the discounts listed there, you can save 75% on newsstand prices, and sometimes receive magazines for less than the cost of shipping. Click here: http://www.amazing-bargains.com

This list is far from exhaustive, but it's a good start in rediscovering the fruitful world of coupon discounts on the Internet.
