The ultimate guide to hidden coupons
Ahhh, hidden coupons. Those pesky money-savers that are hidden away from the main pages of Canadian coupon companies! The coupons you have to dig around to find if you even end up finding anything at all.
Why do some sites “hide” coupons?
Sometimes a company, such as Websaver.ca, will have a special promotion with a brand, such as Kellogg’s, and the brand wants its own page for the coupon. They don’t want to be on the main page – but on their own special page instead.
So, sites like Websaver.ca will create these hidden coupon pages for the brands that request them. Then, they share the links with their users – sometimes. Other times, I don’t think we’re supposed to even know that those pages are there (the promotion is not starting yet, the promotion is almost over, etc.).

The complete guide to hidden coupons
So, how do you find these hidden coupons? Other than by checking in the MapleMoney coupon database, of course!
There are a few things you can do:
1. Check Google.
Type the following into the Google search box: site:http://www.save.ca (or whatever site you are checking). This will show you all of the different pages on the site. Pay close attention to the URL of each page to see that it is different from the main page, then check the link to see if there are any hidden coupons.
Also, if you click on “more search tools”, you can also search by time frame (latest, past 24 hours, past week, etc.).
2. Subscribe to mailing lists.
Make sure that you are subscribed to the mailing lists of all of the coupon sites mentioned above, because sometimes they will send you an email with a hidden coupon link that they haven’t shared anywhere else, just with their email subscribers.

3. Follow sites on social media.
You also want to make sure you are following the above sites on social media. Especially Facebook and/or Twitter.
Social media is one way that companies promote their content a lot these days, so you need to be present on those social media sites if you want to find out about hidden coupons (and free samples!).
