Holiday Gift Buying Savings

Are you loving all these shopping deals floating around, appears Cyber Monday is going to be Cyber Week. I want to give you a couple of pointers for gift shopping. Before you buy anything online look at...
  1. ebates This site is a rebate site for online shopping. They give you a percentage back on your purchases. Just log in and enter the store through their links. If you are a new customer you also will get some sort of joining bonus, used to be $5.
  2. retail me not This site gives you coupon codes for online shopping. It never hurts to see if there is a code for free shipping or other incentives out there.

*Another secret I stumbled upon this week, look through your coupon stash/wallet for "lost" coupons, coupon codes, or gift cards. I probably found close to $100 in gift cards and redeemable coupon codes, that I had stashed to be used later. No time like now to use these cards to get great gifts for friends and family. (Hint: check your husband's wallet too, I found a $20 Walmart card and a Hollywood Video card...still trying to figure out how to use that one).

*Check your email inbox for coupon codes and printables.

*Be on the lookout for those awesome $5 coupons from Hallmark in select magazines. They will score you some freebies or cheapies. I used mine to get Webkinz, priced at $5.99 each!

*Also, have you ever signed up for Kmart Kids Birthday Club? Just register your kids birthday and Kmart will send out a $5 coupon for either the store or online. The birthday kids also get a "birthday pack" with crayons, stickers, a crown, and some coupons. I used mine yesterday to score a couple of nearly free toys!

*I have also been doing some shopping from flash sites. These site offer huge discounts on name brand items and the "sales" change every day or two. There are a lot of signup offers and sign up bonus floating around. Go ahead and sign up, get your credit and then wait until you see a deal for you! Here are a few favorites:

  1. beyond the rack Get $10 credit when you sign up
  2. no more rack, Get $10 credit when you sign up. I really like this site so far!
  3. modnique $5 credit when you sign up and use code star (expires today) to get an extra $10 off.
