finance friday - online coupon codes

Tip #4:

Search for coupon codes.


The thought of coupons overwhelms most people.  I am a proud couponer and save our family lots of money on essentials.  However, I understand that for many it takes too much time, so today's post is about coupon codes.  This is one of the easiest ways to save money when you are shopping online.  I rarely order anything online at full price.  It takes a few moments to find these coupons and seconds to apply them to your shopping cart.  Here's the rundown.

Add your selection(s) to your online shopping bag.  Then, open a new internet browser and Google the retailer plus coupon code.  So for Gap, you would Google "Gap promotional code".  Some of the more popular databases will pull up, I will generally look through retailmenot.com to find a code that work.  I just continue trying the codes until one works.  At time, I have been able to save 30% off an item and it only takes a few minutes.

To gain additional money back, link to the retailer through Upromise or your credit card reward system.

Continuing to cut your budget.
