I wanted to help with ideas on how to save money and here are my ideas.
Blackfriday.com is a website that allows you to view the black Friday ads weeks before they are available in paper. It also gives you the start date for the sales and some of the stores have already started their sales, including Kohls and Amazon. Blackfriday.com is a terrific tool to help you locate the things you want to buy at your pace, not frantically searching the night before the sales start.
Retailmenot.com is a website that shows you the coupon codes available for online stores.
Ebates is your first stop to shopping online. It pays you to shop at stores online and now some actual retail stores. If you go there first then input the store name where you are shopping online, and click on that site, you will automatically receive monies back for your purchases.
Splitcoaststampers.com is a website that has a lot of great tutorials, ideas, galleries, and you can find great deals on crafting products. Once you find the buy/sell listings, I’d save it as a favorite on your computer so it’s easy to get to.
Credit cards can save you money in a couple of ways:
1. If you pay interest and your rate it high, you can contact the credit card company and ask for a better product at a lower rate. In order to get a lower rate, you must pay on time every month.
2. If you pay your credit cards off monthly, use a cash back credit card and research them by googling “best cash back credit cards” and find the one that works best for you.
3. If you don’t use credit and have a debit card that is connected to your checking account, your bank may have a rewards program linked to it. If you aren’t sure, call your bank and inquire about it.
Walmart Savings Catcher–price matches local ads just by putting your receipt information into it on the walmart.com site. They will pay you an e gift card for any prices that are lower elsewhere in your area.
Loyalty Cards-make sure you have them for the stores you frequent so they can tailor offers to your buying habits as well as sending you offers via the mail and email.
I hope my ideas are of some help to you and that you find ways to save money from them. Please let me know if you have any other ideas that I forgot to cover or didn’t know about.
