A Different kind of coupon

      While printable coupons are great some people may not realize they can save a ton of money just by shopping online. There are a variety of websites that accept online "promo codes". Some promo codes require more digging and others are right in front of your face. Its all about knowing where to go.

          One of the best things about online shopping is being able to compare prices instantly! Saving you time, gas, and money! For those of us with little kids this can be a blessing! Sometimes taking little ones out can feel like you have to pack everything but the kitchen sink (or sometimes even the kitchen sink!). So being able to shop with just the click of a button is great and the online promo codes? Think of them as the added bonus or even "the cherry on top".


         Ive said it once and I will say it again... Google is always your best bet to search for anything and everything. Searching on Google for promo codes has led me to a handful of sites that I love and would recommend to anyone when it comes to price comparisons and finding promo codes. Following is a list of the websites that I use.

Price Comparisons

WWW.PRICEGRABBER.COM

 Use Price Grabber to quickly get free information about products, services, merchants and sellers before making a purchase. You can search by category or by specific item name.


WWW.BIZRATE.COM


Bizrate operates just about the same as pricegrabber. But I think it is always good to have more than one website to go to when searching for the best online deals.


* Both Bizrate and Price grabber are my personal Top 2 but there are several other websites that offer price comparisons. Here is an article online comparing a bunch of different ones. This should help you decide which ones to use. (Which comparison shopping site is best?)




Promo Codes and Coupons 




WWW.RETAILMENOT.COM
WWW.COUPONCABIN.COM
WWW.PROMOTIONALCODES.COM


Search for promo codes alphabetically (by website/retailers name) or directly through the sites search bar. Expiring codes are located together with just one click of the mouse as well as codes for free shipping.


*All three sites offer the same thing and have very similar layouts (of course with different designs). They are all in my top just for that reason. When I look at a website I am looking to see if it is easy to navigate and if I can find what I am looking for in a timely manner. These websites fit that to a T.

  20. Great, it's astonishing how much you can save! And considering that they still make a profit (or so I assume), you better not think about how you get ripped off every day ... Thanks!

    Also depending on where you live some places have babyclubs where they send you coupons. Here in south Florida both Publix and Winndixie have babyclubs
