Discount coupons are available in newspapers and magazines and from many online sources. Many companies also offer coupons through the mail and through email lists. Some companies send coupons to customers who call and request them.
Coupons sometimes appear on the packaging of certain items. Another source for coupons is directly from stores. Shoppers can pluck coupons from coupon kiosks, booklets or dispensers located in certain stores. Many stores print out coupons with receipts that directly target goods the customer purchased.
Certain websites compile promotional codes for customers shopping online. Some examples of these websites are Coupons.com, RetailMeNot.com and SlickDeals.net. In addition, websites such as Groupon offer goods and services for far less than retail price.
