Do a search for the specific name of the coupon you want.
The quantities on coupons can make a huge difference. For example, some Cottonelle coupons are for $.50 on ONE and others are for $.50 on TWO. Be sure to inspect what the value and quantity is before you agree to the purchase! That is sometimes the difference between getting it for FREE and actually paying for it!
Buy it Now auctions are the fastest and easiest way to order. Since store sales are only 7 days, I always use this method to ensure I receive my coupons in time for the sale. There has never been a time I have not received my coupons in time (with Ebay or a clipping service)! Honestly, if it’s a really hot sale the store may be out of the item anyway. Always get a rain check to ensure you can still use those coupons!
Consider this (of course) when making a purchase because if an auction is priced too high, you may be better off passing on the deal. Generally, you can get 10-20 coupons for $1-$2. Sometimes you can get FREE shipping or reduced shipping costs if you order multiple auctions if you order on Ebay.
Many times there are printable coupons available from sites like Coupons.com and Cool Savings (you can see my list of Internet Printable Coupon Sites here). I have found that when I pull together a few friends and tell them I want a certain printable, I manage to get more than enough so ordering isn’t necessary.
