*** MONEY SAVING AND BARGAIN SHOPPING TIPS ***

Recommended Posts

Places to get gift cards at a discount: - They sell gift cards for popular retailers at a discounted rate, you can also sell gift cards to them likely for 60-70% of value.

http://www.plasticjungle.com

http://www.cardwoo.com


Places to get coupon codes and discounts:

http://www.retailmenot.com

http://www.couponcabin.com

Google, example : "nflshop.com coupons"


if you buy gift cards for 8-25% off, and find a 10-30% off coupons, you could save as much as 20-50% off whatever you are buying.. makes sense for bigger ticket items you have a week or two before you need to purchase.. the gift card sites have free shipping, so get the cards cheaper and then use a coupon off your purchase.. double up your savings..

feel free to add any sources you know of and ill add to the list..

cool, just got a $100 walmart gift card for $97. Not anything major at all, but I can get another meal at Walmart for my family out of $3.





For those of you needing a lot of stamps during the holid season, stamps.com has a promo code from Mike & Mike in the Morning.


[quote]if you do that, you get a $100 bonus offer that includes $45 of free postage, but you only get it if you type in the code "mike" at stamps.com.[/quote]

Anyone that is looking for an external hard drive might want to check out the Cyber Monday deal that Staples is having next week.

2 TB External Hard Drive for $69.99
http://slickdeals.net/forums/showthread.php?t=2410658


According to that post you can get it for around $50+ tax if you buy some filler for around $5.01 and then use a $25 off $75 coupon.

If it's not on slickdeals.net, I typically don't buy it.

I just signed up for a Sony rewards credit card, and am now trying to figure out what to spend my $200 worth of free rewards money on. PS3, or be responsible and buy gas cards???

I'd be buying a PS3 so my wife and I could play little big planet, and twisted metal (whenever it comes out), and that's about it...

I already have a blu-ray player

hmmmmm

Coinstar has a promo that ends on the 31st that allows you to get a free $10 gift card if you cash in $40 worth of change and pick a eCertificate or gift card instead of cash.

According to the Coinstar website they have these gift cards: iTunes, Lowes, Borders, Rixty, Regal and Amazon
The Amazon one ends on the 22nd, but the rest end on the 31st.
I haven't done this so I'm not sure how long it will take to get the $10 gift card.

I used my $200 sony rewards money on Friday to buy a PS3, and also received a $100 Amazon gift card.

So basically, I paid $100 in advance for a future Amazon purchase (won't be hard), and received a free PS3 160GB.

And, I am giving my parents my old blu-ray player for a Christmas present.

I love finding good deals...

Anyone clip coupons?

www.grocerygame.com
This site pairs manufacturer and store coupons and tells you when the best time is to use it to get the best deals. I save 50-60% all the time at Kroger and Meijer on my whole bill. It's a bit tedious organizing the coupons but it is well worth it you save tons and tons of money. They have a free trial just to check it out. It cost's 10 bucks to subscribe to a store's list every 3 months and an additional 5 for each store. Well worth the money though.

www.cincysavers.com
Kind of like grocerygame where they tell you when and where to use your coupons but it is free. Not as complete of lists but they sometimes catch things that the grocery game doesn't. They also sell gift certificates to restaurants and other businesses. They usually sell $50 certificates for $25 but on Tuesdays they discount select certificates. I got four 25$ gift certificates to Ryan's Tavern in Hamilton for $30. Recently went to Mr Sushi and got $50 worth of food for $25.

www.restaurant.com
They sell discounted gift certificates to restaurants everywhere. They do promos all the time where you can get 70 to 90% off of their certificates. They work differently. It's more like a coupon. For example, the certificate will be worth 25 off if you spend 35. But these coupon/certificates can be bought for about 2 bucks with the promos.

I usually search through these sites along with the slickdeals coupon section:
http://www.coupons.com
http://www.redplum.com
http://www.smartsource.com

You can also find some good coupons available on some companies facebook pages that are not available on other sites, but those usually don't last long.
The savings start adding up if you shop at a store that doubles or triples coupons.

Anyone that likes playing video games should bookmark this link:
http://www.facebook.com/EAInsiderDeals

They do flash sales in which a limited number of a game is sold for about 50-60% off.
I got a MMA game for around $11 a few days ago and just got FIFA 11 for around $25 just a couple minutes ago.
The price may also very depending on what system you have.

Yeah it pays off if you have a major purchase pending and you have till the 14th of march to purchase it. If anyone is wondering yes you can use a lowes consumer credit card with the 6 month no interest to purchase a tax refund card.

If any of you are avid blu-ray buyers like myself, blockbuster is having a crazy sale on their used blu's... $3.99 each and dropping to $0.99 on monday (if anything good is left). I'm already out several hundred dollars.

They come with the cover art, so you just need to buy replacement cases online if you don't want thier rental cases.
