Some different ways to find coupon codes are to visit coupon sites like Coupon Sherpa, DealNews and RetailMeNot, frequent retailer websites and check out their coupons and promotions pages, sign up for email alerts with individual retailers to be notified of coupon codes as they become available and follow different retailers on Facebook and Twitter. Retailers often alert fans to coupons, sales and promotions through social media, and some retailers provide discount codes for people who simply like them on Facebook, reports Kiplinger.
Some retailers release frequent coupon codes on their own websites. These coupon codes are often displayed and promoted at the top of the retailers' websites. The discounts could apply to sitewide or specific items and usually vary from the average 10 percent to 20 percent discounts to the less often used 40 percent discount. Coupons vary depending on company and time of year. Some companies known to offer customers frequent promotions this way are Bath & Body Works, JCPenney, Victoria's Secret, Sears, Kohl's, Saks Fifth Avenue and Macy's, according to Kiplinger.
In addition to finding coupon codes on retailer websites, shoppers should sign up for emails using the signup boxes also located on those websites. Retailers send out information about upcoming sales and sometimes exclusive codes to people who sign up for alerts.
