Many grocery chains use your store loyalty card to track what you buy; then, send you coupons for those products. If meat is something you buy on a regular basis, you'll probably get meat coupons in your snail mail or e-mail – so make sure you scan your card each and every time you shop.

Be on the lookout for meat coupons on non-meat products. You'll often find coupon peelies, hang tags and tear pads on or near products that are likely to be consumed with meat. Think: beer, wine, seasonings, etc.

Both coupons.target.com/ and cartwheel.target.com/ are a great source for meat coupons. Target is also known to put $3-off coupons on packages of meat that are getting close to their sell-by date. Combine both deals to max out your savings. If you can figure out what day your local Target marks down meat, you'll get first dibs on all the goodies. Ask an associate in the meat department, and they'll probably tell you.

Many grocery stores add quick-sale peelie coupons to packages of meat that are getting close to their sell-by date. Trawl the meat department for markdowns, and those little coupons could save you 50% or more.

Tempted to stock up? Just pop everything in the freezer, and it'll stay fresh until you're ready to use it.

You'll find coupons for lunch meat, bacon, sausage and other processed meats in most Sunday coupon inserts, but if it's coupons for fresh meat that you're after, start watching the inserts a few weeks before big meat-eating holidays – Thanksgiving, Christmas, Fourth of July and Memorial Day.

Ask for Coupons
