Change the zipcode in coupon databases tutorial by Emily
Change the zipcode in coupon databases tutorial by Emily shows how to find rare and high value region coupons that may not be offered in our area. I play with changing the zipcodes all the time. I find rare Coca-Cola coupons, coupons for toys and better diaper and wipes coupons when I play with this feature. It’s not difficult to do but I will admit that changing the zipcode is much easier in my Coupon Database #1 since all you do is type it right in.
Coupon Database #2 requires a little bit of work but it’s worth it because both databases don’t offer the same coupons. All coupon databases pretty much say the same thing – they are Coupons.com but not all databases are created equal.
Please be kind to your deal bloggers
I am a coupon blogger and I sign up for these databases through affiliates. Each database is run through different sites and each database has different coupons. Remember that the next time you see a deal blogger post to print a coupon because many couponers save the database link to their phones or desktop and when they go to print the coupon – they can’t find it.
Be sure and use the link in the post to print from so you can be sure you get that awesome coupon. It’s also the courteous thing to do. Why is that? Well, websites like mine cost yearly fees to run, and the time I take to sit down at the computer to write up the deal for you is another factor. If we write up the deals that save you money and include our link for you to print, why not help us out by printing so we can earn pennies to help cover the cost to run our site? Yes, it’s literally just pennies per print but it helps me to keep the site going all year long.
Another thing to keep in mind is that it is actually really not nice to throw a link out there in our posts. New couponers do this without realizing it but it’s not nice to toss out any old link to a coupons.com site. Like I said before, since we write the posts, we’d like to receive what little credit we can get from sharing a good deal with the coupons in our link.
Think of it this way – It would be the same as posting an item for sale and having other sellers who sell the same item, come and hijack your post by telling the interested buyers to buy their product.
Now on to the good stuff….here is the how to change the zipcodes in your coupon databases!
Now you can get right back to finding and printing your coupons! Just click on the links below to start browsing!
Find coupons and print them – right from home! I like to think of it as the legal way to print currency since that slip of paper is just like money! You are more than welcome to browse through not one, not two, but THREE of my coupon databases to find the coupons you need to help you turn your pennies into dollars! I encourage you to change the zip code settings (see below to see how to do it) as well so you can find more coupons.
If you are new to printing coupons from the internet then I highly encourage you to read my five tips for printing internet coupons to get the most out of your ink and paper during print sessions!
Five tips for printing internet coupons:
1. Change your printer settings to print in grayscale to save ink. (Color ink is not cheap!)
2. Save paper by making sure you select coupons in multiples of 3. Three coupons fit per sheet of printing paper. (Target.com coupons will print 4 to a sheet)
3. Make sure your ink levels are good before you click the print coupons button! There’s nothing worse than running out ink halfway through a big print out of coupons. If the coupon can’t be easily read or scanned at the register then it will be rejected.
***IF you are LOW on INK and really want to print a few coupons, pick three that you want the most, print those, and check your ink levels again. Keep selecting just three at a time and printing those three until you fear your ink will not hold out. This way you don’t lose the coupons you can’t print. Example: If you know your ink is low and you selected 21 coupons to print, and you print them ALL AT ONCE, and the printer ink runs out in the middle of printing Coupon #8, the coupon printer software STILL COUNTS all the other coupons as being printed in THIS PRINT SESSION even though you couldn’t finish printing them. This was a hard lesson for me to learn…so heed my advice carefully and go slowly when low on ink.***
4. Be careful when cutting/clipping your printed coupons. The outside border of the coupon has writing that includes important information about you. Don’t cut the writing off and definitely don’t cut inside the border!
5. Last Tip: Use various zip codes to see more offers. I use 77477 the most since it has the biggest availability of coupons. You can change the zip code settings in the profile tab at the top right of the page. You also have to change the state so 77477 is in Texas. Try this other zip codes and states and see what coupons you can find!
77477- TX 21286-MD 10009-NY 19342-PA 90210-CA 33033-FL 29063 -SC 19187-PA 73132-OK 97207-OR 80109-CO 44117 -OH 15007-PA 63047-MO 57007-SD 51559-IA 48816-MI 53511-WI 55080-MN 71055-LA 73003-OK 27520-NC 89109-NV 30180-GA 95820-CA 85331-AZ 92111-CA 45435-OH 90630-CA 30802-GA 74128-OK 12345-NY 76543-TX 11223-NY 18465-PA 16322-PA
