A New York Times article last month pointed out that coupon use has increased during the recession, particulary digital coupons from websites that compile bargains. A few websites that are especially useful if you are pinching pennies are:

  1. Red Plum
  2. Coupons.com
  3. Cellfire
  4. Susan Samtur's Select Coupon Program
  5. Freebies 4 Mom
