Recently, in an online discussion, a group of artists talked about the importance of getting as many things as possible delivered to their studio doors– from food to art supplies–so they can spend their days at work on their art and waste very little time running errands. It is possible to get just about everything you need delivered, but then concern shifts to all those shipping fees you’re paying. If you want free shipping, then next time you are about to place an online order, stop, and before you click that final *buy button* take a minute to search the Coupon Chief site for coupon codes that you can immediately use to get free shipping and discounts.

Coupon Chief asked me to review their site and I am so glad to discover that they currently have discount coupon codes for buying just about anything online–clothing, pet items, stationery, beauty supplies, and yes, art supplies!

Use Coupon Chief coupon codes to get Free shipping for your Jerry’s ARTARAMA orders, Blick, MisterArt, Flax, Greatart UK, Ink Supply, Utrecht and others.  I easily found coupon codes for 15% off, 20% off, and 25% off an entire store order at Jerry’s ARTARAMA, plus coupon codes to get a free Facebook T-shirt with purchase, a free tube of white paint with purchase, and a free brush-washer, (and who doesn’t  like those free items?).

Coupon Chief has several current coupon codes for Utrecht, to get free shipping on orders over $25 dollars, to save 15% on orders over $75 dollars, to save 40% on any 1 item, to get 20% off plus free shipping on your $75 order, to get 40% off one item + free shipping, and  15% off + free shipping on $100 or more, and new coupons codes to get $30 off on orders of $100 or more.

How would you like to save 20% on CafePress orders? Or get 40% off ebooks? Those were the top two coupons when I visited the Coupon Chief website yesterday.

I also found 14 printable coupons for Staples for substantial savings on ink pens, paper, paper shredders, Flash Drives, Laser Jet printers and a coupon code for free shipping for any online purchase. While reviewing the Staples coupons, related coupons appeared in the sidebar, including 31 printable coupons for Office Depot, and 16 Coupons for Office Max and coupons for Viking-direct UK.

The site currently has discounts for stores such as Walgreens, Macy’s,, Urban Outfitters, Home Shopping Network, and sites such as and  I reviewed the alphabetized list of stores on the Coupon Chief site and discovered the Army Navy Shop . Using a Coupon Chief coupon code I  placed an order for %15 off with free shipping for some new vintage paratrooper pants I use as art studio work clothes.

In that Coupon Chief store list I also noticed the Apple iTunes Store and the Apple Store had some incredibly low prices on iPads and iPhones. And that list of stores is a great resource for researching new sites you may not discover otherwise.
