Manufacturer and Store Coupons

What is the Difference Between Manufacturer’s Coupon and Store Coupons?

Manufacturer’s Coupons are created and distributed by the maker of a product. These are accepted at any store that accepts Manufacterer’s Coupons. These can commonly be found in the circular section of the Sunday newspaper.

The 2 popular coupon sections are RedPlum (RP) and SmartSource (SS). Manufacturers coupons vary from region to region and also from paper to paper.  For example, the suburb I live in may have less circulars than the city paper only a few miles down the road.  High value coupons are not commonly seen so grab a few papers when you see them to stock your coupon stash.

Printable Manufacturer’s Coupons can be found here but you may also find them on the website of the product you are searching for.  Most coupons can be legitimately printed twice. No copies! This is an unethical practice.  If you particularly like a product think about sending the manufacturer a compliment on their Contact Us page of their website. They commonly send a reply with a coupon link or mail one to you via snail mail for your comments.

The stores accepting these coupons will check for the “Manufacturer’s Coupon” printing on the paper and also that there is an address printed on them for redemption by the store. These are used as cash and the manufacturer pays the store directly.

Store Coupons, on the other hand,  are coupons issued and distributed by the store itself. These are created to provide a discount to the customer.  They can be found in the store’s weekly circular or on their website/App.

Try to get both Manufacturer’s Coupons and Store Coupons to use in one transaction to save even more money. Most stores will let you combine both unless the coupon states that they cannot be combined with any other offer.
