SHOPPING ONLINE BARGAINS—LAYER THE SAVINGS!
As part of the “Heroes at Home” world tour, my team of experts and I traveled to various military bases bringing helpful workshops. In this ongoing tour, we visited military members and their families around the world, sharing advice and practical tools on how to cope with the military lifestyle. We also offered money management workshops and taught them how to layer the savings. After our tour, we heard from hundreds of these families who had cut their online expenses in half! Here are three steps to save big online:
Step #1: Use a Shopping Robot. Go to MySimon.com, Amazon.com, or Bing.com for shopping robots that will search the Internet for an item and locate the best deal possible. Once you’ve finished the first step of finding the best price, you are ready to add the second layer.
Step #2: Use a Coupon Code. Once you’ve found the best price possible, the second step is to layer in a coupon code. Just go to a code site such as RetailMeNot.com or CouponCabin.com and locate discount codes to save even more. Sometimes these codes are for free shipping, gifts, or percentage discounts. There are also apps such as RetailMeNot that you can use on your smartphone while you are in the store or when shopping online.
Step #3: Use Online Rebates. The final layer is to receive a rebate for your shopping by going to eBates.com or SlickDeals.net. Some of these sites offer referral bonuses for encouraging your friends to sign up for the deals. There are hundreds of participating online sites that offer rebates for your purchases if you take the time to search them out and follow their instructions.
