Are tear pads obsolete?

Hi Everyone,
So lately I've noticed that there aren't many coupon tear pads in stores anymore. I think maybe because coupons are so readily available online in which companies can get your personal information in exchange for coupons. Or that the coupons can be used immediately with purchase. Has anyone else noticed that tear pads seem to be obsolete? Or have you noticed some stores have them more than others?

I don't recall seeing any for quite a while now. They were once everywhere you looked. Strange!

I think maybe they are making less of an occurrence, but there are still some around! The Real Canadian Superstore / Loblaws have a coupon tearpad board, in SDM there are sometimes coupons in the aisles, same with no frills. I think you just need to be on the lookout when you're shopping.

Loblaws have a coupon tearpad here but that is the only store that has one. The other stores have some in the aisles next to the product. They aren't as common as they used to be and you have to keep an eye out for them. Plus I find the ones on Loblaws coupon boards aren't for food most of the time. They are usually for soap, paper products etc.

Canadian tire has them, but they are in between isles. Generally where the products are located. I never noticed them until recently, I started this whole couponing thing and my husband said, hey you should get the ones at Canadian Tire, I was like, huh? Yup, they have some awesome ones! I got the whole scrubbing bubbles automatic spray kit for .50 cents. Regular price is about 11.99, hence they were on clearance and there were coupon tear pad, right in front of the product. They have really high value coupons, so keep an eye out, next time you are at Canadian Tire. :)

I think it depends on the store. I never saw them before here in Quebec until I went to Loblaws and Metro one day!

There are many many mannnnny tearpads still out there!.. Real Canadian Superstore has a coupon board still.. some loblaws and fortinos as well. You can find coupons hanging beside products in stores, like shoppers drug mart, no frills, loblaws. Sometimes companies have cardboard displays with all their products, and sometimes they have tearpads attached to those displays :) hope this helps!
