Clip This Not That! is proud to provide you a coupon database. A coupon database is a wonderful resource when looking for a coupon for a particular product.
Where To Find It
The Coupon Database can be found on the top menu bar. Hover over to click the “Coupon Database” button to gain access.
How It Works
Once you have arrived at the Coupon Database page, just type in the product that you are looking for coupons for. For example, if I am looking to purchase Yoplait Yogurt Cups, I would type in “Yoplait Yogurt”.
Click “Search” and a list of coupons that match my keywords “Yoplait Yogurt” will pull up. I can then decide what kind of yogurt that I would like to purchase and find the coupon source that matches my product of choice.
If a printable coupon is available, click on the link and you will be sent to the website that hosts that coupon. There are several different sources for coupons including: newspapers, printable coupons, magazines, store coupons, and more. Just look under “Source” to find the location.
Coupon Database Terms
The Coupon Database will provide you with the source of the coupon. Understanding the lingo will help you learn where to find it.

How It Helps
The Coupon Database was designed so that you can search for the product that you are shopping for and discover the various coupons that you could use. If you were about to run to the store to purchase Cheez-Its, you could search for a coupon before your purchase. By taking several minutes to search the Coupon Database, you can potential save money on your purchase.
TIP: I always use the Coupon Database when doing coupon matchups. Imagine if an item was on sale AND you match it with a coupon. That equals a GREAT sale!
The Coupon Database could list 5 different Coupon Values that would create 5 different scenarios.
Yoplait Yogurt is on sale for $0.60/cup. The Coupon Database tells me that there are 13 coupons that I could use on my purchase currently. The Coupon Database automatically removes all expired or “out of print” links. I could use any of the 4 coupons below, but which one is the best value?
$0.40/6 Yoplait Cups, exp. 1/7/12 (GM 11/13/11 R)
$1/10 Yoplait Cups, exp. 1/7/12 (GM 11/13/11)
FREE Yoplait Yogurt Cup, exp. 12/19/11 (Mailer)
$0.40/6 Yoplait Yogurt printable
The “FREE” coupon would offer me one cup of Yoplait Yogurt for nothing out of pocket. However I need more than one cup. The best value, would be $0.40/6 because when my store doubles my coupon it will be worth $0.80/6 which would leave my final price at $0.47/each WYB 6.
Do The Math:
$0.60 x 6 = $3.60
$0.40/6 doubles to $0.80/6
= $2.80 / 6 = $0.47/each WYB 6
