When your savings reaches $5, you can opt to be paid through PayPal, with an Amazon gift card or donate it to American Forests. You'll want to bookmark the page and visit every Tuesday to grab their latest healthy product coupon. You'll find coupons for things like navel oranges, bananas, and plums.

Use Your Store Card

Grocery stores have long used your rewards card to track your buying habits. Now many of them are using that information to send you coupons for the products that you buy. If produce is a regular purchase for you, produce coupons are likely to appear in your inbox, so make sure you swipe that card each time you shop.
