9 Things That Are Always Free With Coupons.

Things That Are Always Free With Coupons

Did you know that there are things that are always free with coupons? Things you should never have to pay for?

If you use coupons enough, you will start to notice that you can always find coupons for certain things – toothpaste, bathroom tissue, diapers.

There are also many items that are always free with coupons. Here are 9 of them:

1. Toothpaste

Usually goes on sale for around $1 and there are often $1 (or more) coupons available. Always check the travel section for cheap toothpaste to use your coupons on as well.

2. Toothbrushes

Usually goes on sale for around $1-$2 and there are often $1-$2 coupons available. Oral-B is the brand I can always get for free.

3. Deodorant

Usually goes on sale for around $1.50-$2 there are often $1-$2 coupons available. Secret and Old Spice are the brands I can always get for free. Check out the travel section for deodorant if the larger sizes aren’t on sale.

4. Feminine Pads/Liners/Tampons

Usually go on sale for around $2 and there are often $2 coupons available. Stayfree is the brand I can always get for free.

5. Candles

Usually go on sale for around $2-$5 and there are often $2-$5 coupons available, so these items will always be free (especially around Christmas).

6. Air Fresheners

Usually go on sale for around $1 and there are often $1 coupons available. Glade is the brand I can always get for free.

7. Shave Gel/Cream

Usually go on sale for around $1-$2 and there are often $1-$2 coupons available. Check out the travel section for this item as well.

8. Pain Relievers

Prices vary, depending on brand and type. There are often $3-$6 coupons available. Aspirin and Tylenol are the brands I can often get for free.

9. Canned Soup

Usually go on sale for around $0.50 (especially during colder months) and there are often $0.50 coupons available. Campbell’s is the brand I can always get for free.

Those are things that are always free with coupons..

The key to getting these items for free is to hold on to your coupons until a great sale comes along. If you have a $2 coupon for a certain brand of deodorant and it goes on sale for $2.50 – sure, $0.50 is a good price for deodorant, but continue waiting. There will very likely be a sale for $1.99 or $2 where you can get the deodorant for FREE.

The only time you should not wait to buy these items is if you really need something. If that’s the case, use your coupon and make the purchase. It’s better to save something.

Is there anything that you would add to this list?

      Maybe not free, but you can often find those things at both Shoppers Drug Mart and Costco for cheap!

    Karen, We just recently within the last year got a Target next door…..love it~ price match all the time and actually prefer their brand of many items to the leading brands. I was told at the store, that since I don’t get a flyer and my printer is out of ink (I’m a senior and trying to keep 2 of us and a cat on $100/month!). I was told to just take a picture and they would match it. Half the time they know of better deals than I do. Of course, a lot of the items you would have are not available here in Canada. Now that I don’t have a car, I can’t make trips every 3 months to stock up. Nothing worse than a handful of coupons that can’t be used here! We also have to watch buying gift cards online as they won’t be able to be used in Canada, only in the USA. I wish we could all come together on this!

    your post says to always check travel section but don’t most coupons say not valid on travel/trial sizes ?

  4. Holly Blaine says:

    What does Walmart consider at local competitors? Like how many miles etc? Can’t seem to find that out can you help?

  5. Erica Ashley says:

    Local meaning the area/city you live in. I just bring in the flyers that I receive. They only check the dates to make sure the flyer isn’t expired.

  6. Ashley says:

    Campbell’s coupons come in the smart source and red plum newspaper inserts. I believe they were featured a few weeks back.

  7. Kristin says:

    Where do you get all these coupons?

  8. Brittany says:

    I get my coupons from Coupons.com, redplum.com, smartsource.com and couponing clipping services for those amazing deals I just can’t pass up on and want more coupons. I get 4 Sunday papers from Dollar General (who would have thought!). I also use a coupon scanner I downloaded on my phone called QSeer. This allows you to scan manufacturer coupons and see what the REAL expiration on the coupon is and what items you can actually use the coupon for. Most of the time what the coupons says is completely wrong. Crazy how many coupons don’t have an expiration date. I also use Target coupons from target.com/coupons which you can double up with Manufacturer coupons. I never pay a dime at Target. As for the Walmart situation, this is awful to say but you need to profile your cashiers. Young men are the best to check out with. They don’t care! and the fact is, they are supposed to give you the overage at walmart, they can apply it to overage AND pay you cash if you still have overage. They send that coupon to the manufacturer and get the money back. So technically is they don’t give you that money they are stealing and/or double dipping. I typically only shop at Kroger and Target. That’s where I get the most bang for my buck. Also scan you receipts with Ibotta app and Checkout 51 app. It gives you cash back and things you already purchased! Good luck and happy couponing!!

  9. Hi Brittany! I loved your post, I am the exact same way with using the app and combining all the different tools like Ibotta, target/manuf coupons and picking the right cashier at the right time. I would love to chat sometime and share each other’s tips and tricks of couponing! My e-mail is christopher.a.nolan@live.com

  10. I would love to start couponing can someone please share information on how to start
