So, how does one save money? One way is to spend the time to make use of the many resources online. Online resources include printable coupons, shopping for “points” or “cash back” which you can trade in. (Literally, I’ve gotten back over $250 from collected points!)
Another way to save money is to use physical coupons. Yes, I still get the Sunday paper…and I get it just for the coupons. Also, many stores are starting to put a ‘coupon basket’ by the front door in which customers drop off coupons they don’t want and search through looking for coupons they do want.
But one of my favorite ways to save money is to use coupon codes when I shop online. Did you know that when you buy from a store, a good portion of them have coupon codes? Coupon codes for a certain percentage off, free shipping, or other deals (such as 2 for $20 video games). Almost all of the major retailers have coupon codes online: Wal-Mart, Target, Macy’s, etc.
So, where to find these online coupon codes?
Frugal Dad is one of my favorites. First, it is reputable. It has been featured in ‘The New York Times,’ ‘The New Yorker,’ and ‘Kiplinger’ among many others. (I personally verified ‘The NY Times’ feature, making me certain I can trust the others.) Speaking of the site being reputable, it has archives going back to 2007! Trust me, the longer a site has been around, the better it is in general. It shows the site owner is dedicated to what they are doing and are very familiar- probably an expert- with the topic they are writing about.
It has coupon codes for a large variety of stores, including coupon codes from Walmart. Just a few of the other stores he features coupon codes for is Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and Macy’s (among many, many others). My advice: if you’re looking for coupon codes, check out Frugal Dad, located at: http://frugaldad.com/
