When shopping online, search for the store’s name plus “coupon code” before making a purchase. Many sites will advertise coupon codes to help give consumers a break. Sometimes you’ll enter coupon codes and it will not work, but sometimes you’ll get lucky and get some savings like $5 off shipping fees or 20% off your entire purchase. It’s always worth taking a few minutes to look.
Combine sales with coupons, and you’ll save even more. For the internet-savvy, eBay can be a great source of coupons, such as 10 buy-one-get-one-free coupons (abbreviated B1G1 in eBay lingo) of your favorite dish soap. The coupons might cost you $2.60 total including postage, but if you use all 10 of them, your net savings of $2 on each bottle of dish soap will be at least $20.00 plus tax. If you have time to look through a few pages of content, then sites that offer free printable coupons, like Coupons.com and Groupon.com could be a good option.
