Questions? Answers!

Monday, September 8th, 2008

Since I am constantly receiving questions about saving money–particularly in this economy–I have shifted the style of the blog.  If you have a particular question on saving money without wasting time, be sure to submit it through www.turbo-mom.com.  You’ll see your answer posted on this blog!

How can I save money with online coupons without wasting a lot of time?  You could spend hours looking for ones that work!

Use coupon code sites that are regularly refreshed and with limited advertisements.  If you can’t find a discount code or rebate on www.ebates.com (see my earlier posting all about E-Bates), you can always search for information on the web.  This can be tricky because a lot of coupon code websites have become advertising fronts for the companies they write about.  When you click on a link, you think you are going for a code but you end up in a sea of ads.  Ten minutes later, you are nowhere near a “true” coupon code!

 

Here are some of the better and consistent coupon code websites:

www.edealinfo.com
www.retailmenot.com
www.couponshare.com 

Try a quick Google search of the site you are shopping.  For example: Shoebuy + “coupon code”.  Usually, when all else fails, this will turn up some sort of a helpful discount code.  

 

Sometimes, there just isn’t a coupon code for your store.  If you come up with nothing after a maximum of 10 minutes, it’s time to let the coupon code hunt go.  You’ve gotten the best deal you can find—it’s time to make your purchase!
