I’m often asked about how I “work deals” when it comes to online shopping. It does just a little extra work but it’s worth it!
I first go to Ebates.com and search for the store that I want to shop at. I click on the link and then shop as normal.
An additional step that I also do is use RetailMeNot. Right before I’m ready to check out, I open a separate browser/tab and pull up the RetailMeNot website. I search for a coupon code for the store that I am shopping at. More often than not I find one that works so that’s an additional savings.
I actually take this a step further and pay for the purchase with my credit card that earns rewards. I earn points that I can later convert to gift cards. And if the particular retailer that you shop from offers their own rewards program, you get additional benefit from that!
Once you get used to doing that, it’s actually very easy and pretty quick to do.
Hope this helps!
