Coupon fraud is on the rise, according to the National Grocers Association. To avoid a fake, Consumer Reports says check the coupon expiration date to make sure it hasn't been altered. Consumer Reports ShopSmart has identified great places to get coupons.

Good sites include Coupons.com, SmartSource.com, and CoolSavings.com. ShopSmart says to always check on the first day of the month, that's when they usually load the new coupons.

To print the coupons, you will have to download special software. ShopSmart advises printing the whole page so that the store manager can see that it's from a legitimate source.

And for more supermarket savings, before you head to the store check for sales online at MyGroceryDeals.com. You can compare coupons at your favorite supermarkets and decide where to shop that week, and maybe even plan your menus around what's on sale.

ShopSmart says before you head out to shop, it also pays to go to the store's Web site and look for discounts. These days, even outlet stores have coupons you can print out.
