      Hi Linda! Thanks for commenting! The best way I’ve found to get coupons in the mail is by buying/subscribing to the Sunday edition of the local paper or contacting the companies I’m interested in directly. I especially like that option because I have a better chance of getting coupons for products I know I will use and enjoy. These manufacturers coupons are also a little like gold – they are typically valid at any store that carries their products. To get these coupons, you’ll have to reach out to the companies directly. Here’s a really good list of companies that tend to send out their manufacturer coupons and links to their contact info, as well as an idea of what to say when you contact them. Check it out here.
