Turn on your printer — Coupons.com has released a new batch of free printable coupons for July.
You’ll find opportunities to save on scores of items, including everything from foods — such as cereal and meats, and much more — to diapers for your baby and aspirin for your aching head. You will also find pet food coupons and savings on household products.
To search for coupons by type, go to the Coupons.com home page and use the “Categories” pull-down menu.
As always, don’t wait too long to print any coupons that interest you. They are available for a limited amount of time that is unspecified. So what’s available this week could be gone next week.
Using Coupons.com is free. The only requirement is that you download Coupons.com’s “Coupon Printer” program to your computer to be able to print the coupons.
The website will automatically prompt you to install it the first time you try to print, though. So just click a couple of buttons when prompted. If you’ve already installed the program, there’s no need to do so again on the same computer.

Get a free $10 gift card + cash back whenever you shop online
If you do any shopping online and you’re not using a cashback site, you’re flushing money down the drain. It’s just that simple.
A cashback site offers rebates whenever you shop online. Cashback ranges from as little as 1 percent to as much as 40 percent, depending on the store. Not all stores offer rebates, but thousands do.
Getting started with a cashback site is simple. You sign up, then visit the site before shopping online. For example, if you want to shop at Kohl’s, instead of going directly to Kohls.com, you’d start at the cashback site, click on the Kohl’s link, then when you buy something, you’ll earn money back. Rebates are typically paid quarterly.
There’s no catch. Cashback sites simply get a commission from participating stores when you make a purchase, then share it with you.
Example: Click this link and you’ll go to one of the oldest and most popular cash back sites, Ebates. Give them your email address and you’re done. You don’t have to provide your name, bank or credit card info, and the process takes less time than it took to read this sentence.
You’ll also qualify for a $10 gift card from either Walmart or Ebates just for signing up. To claim it, all you have to do is buy $25 worth of stuff through Ebates within 90 days.
Important: After Signing up for Ebates, download their browser button. (You get it at the Ebates site and it only takes a few seconds to install.) Once it’s in your browser, every search result shows you the available rebate.
