Monday’s Money-Saving Tips



Today’s tip is probably not new to all of you, but there still may be some out there who don’t know about it.  Hopefully, this will be useful to you for your Christmas shopping.

Whenever you shop online, do a search for “{store name} coupon codes”.  You will get several sites listing all kinds of promotional codes, anything from a percentage off to free shipping.  When you check out, look for the “promo code” box.  Type in the code you’d like to use and click “apply”.  It will show your discount, or if for some reason the code isn’t valid, it will let you know and you can try a different code.

I have a Tracfone, and when I buy minutes I’m always able to find a code for free additional minutes.  I also have great results for Children’s Place; I shop their sale pages, then I’m always able to find a code for an additional percentage off my whole purchase (usually 15%).  I have often been able to buy articles of clothing for around $3, or even less!

A Google search will come up with many such lists, but here are a few that I especially like:
Happy shopping!
Now it’s your turn.  Party rules:
  • share a money-saving tip that will help others
  • you must link back to me in your post, preferably using my button code, which you can get in my right side column
  • link to your specific party post, and not your general home page
  • please be polite and visit several other participants and leave a nice comment
  • I will delete entries that don’t link back to me or do not fit the party theme; I’m not mean, I just gotta follow the rules
Linky open until Monday Nov. 29 at 11:59 pm central.

I also have a Tracfone and do the exact same thing! Aren't we clever?

Books are my weakness, but I won't cough up the $25 for the Barnes & Noble membership.

I signed up for the free Borders Rewards card, and they send me coupons weekly - the best one so far was 50% off any item - normally they're 25% to 33% off one item.

If I don't get a coupon that week, you can *always* find a Borders coupon if you search on google - the lowest is 20% off.

There's no reason to pay full price for a book!

Thank you for sharing the actual links! Sometimes I search for coupons and get taken to shady sites. I'll ditto spiffkins....I LOVE the Borders emails...they have great coupons, and I recently earned $10 to spend! I came home with two books and only spent $4. :)
