When I go shopping, I never pay full price for anything. I am always looking for a deal or a coupon. Eventually everything goes on sale, so I don’t think there is a need need to pay full price for something. My friends are always asking me for advice on how I do it so I thought I would put together this blog post.
Here are few ways that help me to save money while shopping:
EBATES: I do must of my shopping online. Before I shop online, I always check out EBATES first. If you don’t have EBATES, you are seriously missing out. They are partnered with hundreds (probably thousands) of store. All you do is go to EBATES, search for your store. It will tell you any promotions or coupons they are running. Then they will re-direct you to the store’s website. If you then make a purchase, EBATES will give you cash back. They pay out once a quarter. It is such easy way to make money, especially when you are going to shop online. If you don’t have a Ebates account, click here to sign up and get $10!
Target – I love Target! You can literally find anything you need here. They even carry Hearth and Hand, which is a Joanna Gaines Home Decor (love her Farmhouse style). When shopping at Target, I make sure to use my Target Red Card. It is linked to my debit card and every time I pay with my Target Red Card, I automatically save 5%. Every little bit adds up. If you love Target, I strongly recommend signing up with their Red Card. I’ve never had any issues with it.
Kohls– Kohls is a department store. They have fashion for the whole family, shoes, home decor, kitchen items, toys, bathroom items, and so much more! They offer coupons several times a year. I only shop there when I have a 30% coupon, which I usually get about every month. They also offer really good sales and you can use the coupon with the sales (except for certain brands). I can usually find great finds in clearance too. Last winter I was able to get a $400 Kitchen Aid Mixer for $110!
Retailmenot – Anytime I head to a store, I always check Retailmenot for coupons. I have the app on my phone and it is so easy to search. You can find coupons that for in store or online only purchases.
