Did you make a New Year’s resolution to eat healthier? You are not along (myself included). One problem many people run into is the high cost of healthier and organic foods in relation to the regular every day brands. While couponing for these items is a little harder, all is not lost. Here are 5 tips to save on organic foods.
1. Check Your Store’s Website
Many health conscious stores these days offer online and mobile ecoupons or loyalty programs. Many times they will send you additional coupons when signing up for their emails. Even regular grocery chains such as Kroger will typically offer mobile ecoupons for their organic store brands. Here are a few examples:
- Whole Foods – offers printable online coupons here or mobile ecoupons on their app here.
- Sprouts – offers mobile ecoupons on their app here.
- Kroger owned stores – offers mobile ecoupons here, which many times include their organic Simple Truth Brand.
- Natural Grocers – offers a store loyalty program here for shopping in store.
Don’t see your store? Be sure to check out their website to see what they have to offer.
2. Find Online Coupons
Coupons for healthy foods can also sometimes be found just by checking online coupon websites. These websites include coupons.com, Smartsource.com, Redplum.com, and PG.com. Better yet here are some coupon websites that offer healthy/organic specific coupons:
3. Find Online Matchups
Personally my favorite way to coupon at health conscious stores is to find the websites that post weekly matchups. You can find these websites with a simple google search. Essentially they help you do the work by automatically matching up any available coupon with the current sales. This is a huge time saver. (Learn more about using website matchups here.) Here are a couple of examples:
- AllNaturalSavings.com – offers weekly matchups here specifically for healthy/organic foods. Store matchups include Whole Foods, Trader Joes, and even organic brands at Kroger, Target, and Amazon.
- IHeartNaturalDeals.com – offers weekly matchups here specifically for healthy/organic foods. Store matchups include Whole Foods, Sprouts, Natural Grocers, and even organic brands at Walmart.
- TheKrazyCouponLady.com – offers weekly matchups for Whole Foods here.
4. Go to the Manufacturer
Many times manufacturers will offer coupons for their products on their own website. If you have a favorite brand try checking out their website to see what they offer. Sometimes writing an email to the brand expressing your happiness with it can yield some nice coupons as well. Check out this post from Frugal Living laying out a few manufacturer programs here.
5. Try Amazon
If you’re like me you don’t particularly care to run around to a lot of stores to get the cheapest prices. Thankfully Amazon can be a lifesaver. Amazon offers many organic brands on their site for order many of which qualify for Prime shipping. This means that if you are an Amazon Prime member it will get free 2 day shipping.
Also, try Amazon Subscribe & Save for even more savings. While Subscribe & Save has a smaller selection, many brands are still available. You don’t have to be a Prime member to use it, and items ships for free straight to your door. Plus always get a 5% discount on your subscription (which is extremely flexible) or up to 15% off with 5 or more items (they even have clippable coupons!). As an example, I personally have been able to find and save on cashew butter, ghee, lara bars, bulk nuts, and Red Mill nut flours through Subscribe & Save.
