Green and Frugal: Best Places to Find Coupons

Coupons are one of the fastest and easiest ways to save money, especially online. Never ever buy an item online without first entering the site's name and the words "coupon code" into a Google search. Guaranteed you may find a percentage discount, free shipping -- or both!

Who better to offer advice than They just came out with 52 Places to Find Coupons.

While some places may not surprise you -- manufacturers' sites, newspapers and Facebook. I think you'll be pleasantly surprised to find some new places to add to your coupon-scouring list, including coupon trains, tourist/visitor centers and casinos.

I, for one, just returned from a fabulous trip to France to celebrate my 10-year wedding anniversary. When we booked our vacation on, we were offered a 3-day Strasbourg pass by their Office of Tourism. For $16, the little coupon book included a number of free offers (visit the cathedral viewing platform, rent a bike for half a day) and also offered significant discounts to other tourist attractions (50% off a boat tour and 30% off any merchandise in the Office of Tourism). We more than paid for the book by taking advantage of just a few offerings!

Have any good coupon stories you'd like to share? Saving money is like sport these days, and you never know where you'll find savings!
