How To Get Coupons In Canada – My Favourite Sources

Get Canadian Coupons.

Today I’m going to show you exactly how you can get coupons in Canada.

For some reason, people seem to think that it’s impossible to get great, high-value coupons in Canada, but I am here to tell you that it is not hard at all. There are coupons everywhere – if you know where to look.

These are my favourite places that you can find coupons in Canada:

Tear Pad Coupons

Now, since Extreme Couponing aired a few years ago, it has become increasingly more difficult to find tear pad coupons in stores – but I promise you, they are still out there. Do your best to try and get to the stores at least once a week so that you can look around for coupons on tear pads.

Tear pad coupons are those coupons that you find in front of products at the store, usually on a plastic or cardboard backing.

Please only take about 3-10 coupons that you are going to use. Do not take coupons if you’re not going to use them, unless you’re going to take 1 or 2 for coupon trading or coupon trains – that’s fine.

Also, do not take entire tear pads of coupons – that is poor coupon etiquette, and not nice – so don’t do that.

Coupon Websites

Here are 4 of the best coupon websites in Canada:


All 4 of these websites will actually mail coupons to your house for FREE. That’s right, you can go on their website, pick the coupons that you want, and they will mail them to your house for free. Awesome, right? I know. It’s my favourite.

You can only order a certain amount of coupons at a time – there are different rules for each site (read the rules/details right here).

Printable Coupons Tips

Printable Coupons

Let’s not forget about the good ol’ printed coupon. Just like tear pad coupons, these are becoming a bit more difficult to come across (high-value printable coupons, anyway), and that is because of counterfeit coupons.

Unfortunately there are some bad people out there making counterfeit coupons, and they’re ruining it for the rest of us. However, there are still good printable coupons out there. Check out our coupon database and you will find hundreds of different printable coupons that you can use in Canada.

You can also check out the websites of your favourite manufacturers, and you will often find printable coupons on those, as well.

Coupon Inserts

Unlike over in the US, we do not get coupon inserts every Sunday in our papers. We get coupon inserts every 2-3 weeks. The coupon inserts that we receive every 2-3 weeks are SmartSource and Redplum. You can also find a Brandsaver coupon insert every few months, as well.

Where do you get these coupon inserts if you don’t get the newspaper delivered to you (read here for more information)? That’s a whole other story, really, but if you are not getting them in your paper and you get the paper delivered to you, contact your local newspaper.

Unfortunately, it may be possible that your newspaper carrier is taking them, or your neighbours are taking them… they will do some research for you and find out where these coupons are going, because if you’re getting the paper, you should be receiving your coupons.

So, those are my favourite places to get coupons in Canada. There are bunch of other ways that you can find coupons – there are coupons all over the place, but this is a start.

I hope that if you have not started to use coupons in Canada yet, that you will, because it is so much fun – you save so much money and can get a nice big stockpile of groceries (that you can get for free or very close to it).

    My son is a paper delivery boy. The paper in our town is free, and is to go to every house unless the occupant has requested we don’t deliver to their home. They always give us extras which we are told to recycle if they are left over. As well sometimes we come to a house that is vacant, and we are not to deliver to vacant homes. Of course the inserts come home with us before we recycle the remaining papers. 😉

    I know someone who maintains an apartment building. She asked tenants to leave their inserts (after they took the ones they wanted) in a bin and she had tons! She even passed some on to me! 🙂

  3. Arteme says:

    Two other sources for coupons I’ve found: on the packages of products there are often coupons printed on the back. Examples: taco kits will have coupons for refried beans, cheese, salad. Cereal boxes often have coupons for various items. Always check the package!

    The other place I’ve found coupons is in free sample packages sent by manufacturers, or in their self-promo “magazine/flyers.” Example: Kraft’s What’s Cooking magazine sometimes contains coupons for new products they are introducing. Health and beauty product samples mailed to me often contain coupons for the product being sampled.
