How To Use The Coupon Database
Welcome to the FrugalChicken Coupon Database!
Even though as homesteaders we try to be self-reliant, there’s some things we just can’t manufacture ourselves! This database will help you out.
Here you will find a complete listing of the coupons found in the weekly newspaper inserts and ALL YOU magazine, printable coupons from sites such as Coupons.com, SmartSource and RedPlum, and ecoupons from Cellfire and Upromise.
There are tons of great features included in the database so it’s easier and more useful for you to use.
The database includes ten key pieces of information about every coupon:
- Expiration date,
- Source, brand,
- Store (if it is a store coupon),
- Product subcategory
- Blogging format.
All that information on the screen at one time can make it hard, so you switch between the default compressed view – which includes description, value, expiration date, source, limitations, store and blogging format – and the expanded view as you need.
Sort by Column Header
Make your search results even more useful by sorting the results by any column header. Whether you’re looking for coupons that expire this week or those with the highest value, click on any header in the table to sort all of the data by that column.
Search by Any Field
Make coupon match-ups easier by searching for coupons according to the store deals each week. Search any field using the search box at the top of the database and quickly find the coupons you’re looking for!
For bloggers who post coupon match-ups and deals on their own blogs, use the blogging format to simplify the process. Rather than having to write out a description of each coupon you refer to, simply copy and paste the blogging format right from the database for a complete description that includes value, product description, expiration date and source.
There are two ways to do this. You can simply click on the field and it will copy the HTML onto your clipboard so you can paste it into the post window using ctrl+v (be sure to be in HTML view). Or, you can click “Hide” to turn off the click-to-copy and highlight, copy and paste them manually.
Use the Print button (located in the search box) to print your list of coupons. You can search for specific coupons or print the complete list of coupons.
Once you click the Print button, you will be taken to a printer-friendly version of your coupons. Set your printer on landscape orientation for the best results. Please note that this will not print the actual coupons, only the list of coupons in the search you performed.
