SmartSource printable coupons can be found in a variety of places. Similar to other distributors, these printables can be found on the the SmartSource Portal on SaveaLoonie. You can also find Hidden SmartSource Coupons through a variety of sources including Facebook promotions, email newsletters and brand websites.

When are coupons released?

SmartSource does not have a set print-at-home coupon release schedule. However, you can generally expect to see new coupons added to the main portal around the time new SmartSource Coupon Inserts are coming out.

Other times, new coupons are added as a total surprise! It’s always worth checking to see if a new coupon has been added.

What to know about SmartSource

SmartSource only offers their online coupons in print-at-home format. You cannot request to have these coupons mailed. However, often times, the coupons available online will also be available in a SmartSource Coupon Insert. Here are some things you need to know about printing SmartSource coupons.
