Let’s face it, the way to communicate has changed in the past few years.

The old fashion way of just picking up the telephone to talk to your best friend has changed. Couponers are now using their cell phones and social media networks like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram to get certain deals on the products they love and enjoy. Take a look at 2 Social Media Networks that couponers use and how you can use them to your advantage:

Love a product? Follow the brand!
I use many products each month but what I love is being able to share my likes or dislikes about the product or brand. You can “like” and get notifications from brands on Facebook?

Some of the exact brands that you use and love most often like Dove, Kraft and Dole just to name a few, are all on Facebook interacting with their fan base.

If you are already on Facebook, search for some of your favorite product brands and get social!

Whenever the companies put out a specific coupon, you will get a notification if you are following them.

Tweet on Twitter

Do you Tweet? When was the last time you were on Twitter? Which brands are you following on Twitter?

Companies like Publix, Kroger, Wal-Mart, Kmart, Target, Whole Foods, plus so many more are on Twitter. Plus, it is super simple to follow them. Just create a profile, search for the company and click the follow button.

You can follow immediate news that they share with the public related to jobs, products and general information. You can also follow Redplum, Smartsource, and Procter & Gamble. Remember these are all the coupon inserts that you see sometimes in your Sunday Newspaper. These companies will also let you know about coupons coming out in your inserts plus some you can download to print and use.

Quida can find a coupon for almost anything and she often surprises cashiers when she checks out. For more tips on saving and couponing, visit Quida at  Simple Savings for ATL Moms. Connect and interact with her on Twitter Facebook, and Instagram.
