Yay Coupon Codes!!

I loooooove coupon codes. I have previously mentioned coupon codes here before, but many of you might be wondering what in the world I’m taking about. Well coupon or promotional codes are like instant coupons you use when you shop online. They can be given out by companies for previous purchases or for signing up on their website. 

There are also websites where you can search for coupon codes by brand/company name. Some of my favorites are www.retailmenot.com, www.shopathome.com, www.couponcabin.com, and www.couponmountain.com. Now that you know what they are and where you can get them, let me show you what you can use them on:

  • Vacations – Finding a code can lead to saving money or earning free nights! Some offers include a free night after you book another. This makes it more affordable to extend a trip an extra day or two. Bundle packages are great too and may include options for the flight, hotel or car rentals.
  • College – Students are always looking to save money on books. Promotional codes can be used to lower textbook cost for students. This is a great way for students to save as much as possible on books.
  • Clothes – A code can be redeemed to save a percentage or amount off totals. When combined with sales the savings can be huge for consumers. Another way to save money is to use a value added coupon, like a discount on other goods with a purchase. Some offers may also include a buy one, get one free.
  • Cosmetics – Shopping online is a great way to save on cosmetics. Instead of paying department store prices, many turn to the internet because prices are often lower than stores. Some deals include free trial sizes, samples or bonus items on orders.
