Save Your Money – Use Coupon Codes
Just last week I was making a hotel reservation using Expedia.com. When I got to the “checkout” page…there it was…the little box asking for a coupon code! So, rather than leaving it blank, I went to Dealslip.com and found a coupon code that gave me an extra 10% off my reservation!
Whenever you’re shopping online, don’t leave the coupon code box or promo code box blank! You must use a coupon code! What is a promo code or coupon code? It’s your ticket to savings, and here’s The Budget Diet’s 3-step plan to save money whenever you shop online. By the way, in Europe, coupon codes are known as voucher codes.
- Start by doing an internet search for the item you’re shopping for and visit a few of the price comparison sites that pop up like Nextag and Yahoo. You’ll quickly discover which store has the best price.
- Now, head over to Ebates and enter the name of the store where you found the lowest price, so you can save even more money. Ebates will give you coupon codes plus cash back at over 1200 stores!
- This step is only necessary if the store you’re looking for is not listed on Ebates. The final money saving trick is to use RetailMeNot.com for finding coupon codes. You just won’t earn any cash back like you would with Ebates, but you will find money saving coupon codes.
Now…hopefully you have a coupon code or promo code to put in the little box to help you save your money!
