How to Make Money With Grocery Coupons! Plus Printable Grocery Coupons!



I am going to show you one of the ways I make a little extra cash from grocery coupons using my computer and printer. 

My ttechnique involves printing out the coupons that I find on the Internet that pay me to redeem them, either in the form of cash or in points.

For example here are two of many sites that reward me for redeeming the Internet coupons that I print out.  You can use these links I have included to reach the sites.  If you are not a member you can sign up for free account and start earning.  Of these two sites I have listed InboxDollars pays the best per coupon.  

InboxDollars.com - Print Free Grocery Coupons.  Just sign up for a FREE InboxDollars account and get access to all the printable coupons.  If you are a new member you will get a $5 sign-up bonus.  Each time you print out and redeem a coupon you will earn $0.10 per coupon.

Swagbucks.com - Print Free Grocery Coupons. Just sign up for a FREE Swagbucks account and get access to all the printable coupons.  You will also earn 30 Swagbucks for signing up!  Each time you print out and redeem a coupon you will earn 10 Swagbucks.

One of the most effective ways that I have found of making money and earning points for the coupons I print out from these sites does not involve me beyond the printing part.  I print out the coupons for my family, friends, and neighbors to use when they shop.  I even print out some to carry with me and give to the people I run into in the grocery store and leave they lying around near the products in the store for people to just pick up and use.  That way I get the benefit of them using the coupons and don't have to spend any money.  

You are probably thinking that I still have the cost of printing that needs to be factored into this grand plan of mine and you're absolutely right.  Long ago I stopped using expensive ink jet printers for printing anything except photos and I rarely do that.  Instead I use a high-speed black & white (monochrome) laser printer that uses toner instead of ink.  

I bought several refurbished Brother Laser printers on sale for around $50 a piece.  The printers also came with one toner cartridge.  The total cost to operate the laser printer is less than a penny per page and that includes the cost of the toner.  To save money on toner I buy a bundle of the OEM replacement toner cartridges for about half price through Amazon.com.
Most of the time I will buy the generic or store brand printer paper either on-sale and get it really cheap or the brand name if the store has some sort of special going on at the time.  The last time I bought paper I bought about 5 case of 10 reams each so I have plenty of paper.  Again the cost for the paper works out to less than a penny a page and I can normally get from 1-3 coupons per page.

When I print out the coupons for family, friends and neighbors I know them well enough to know what types of coupons they like and use and print out the coupons accordingly.  I don't bother cutting out the coupons for them and instead just give them the whole page or pages and ask that they return any that they don't use so I can pass them on.  Any unused coupons I save up and donate to the military troops and their families overseas.  So there is very little waste involved in my process.


So from a cost stand point I am spending less than a penny per coupon on average and getting back 10 cents for each coupon or 10 points for each coupon when I use the coupons I find at Swagbucks. 


You won't get rich using this technique since you are limited to two (2) of each coupon from each of the various coupon web sites, although you can print out two (2) coupons from each computer you have access too.  I have three (3) computers so if want to I can print out 6 of each coupon.  So it is also a way of utilizing the computer and printer resources that you have invested money in and in a way it helps to pay for them over time.
