I currently don’t have an office chair in our office. Instead, I use one of the dining room chairs when I’m working at my desktop computer. Mr. M has been trying to get me to buy a new chair forever… and I kept telling him to “wait for a deal to arrive.”
He thought I was crazy… but then when I bought this chair yesterday for $64.64. You see… it was $80 off – $20 coupon + free shipping. I think he finally understood.
Before I ever hit “send my order” online … I always visit at least three sites:
1) www.retailmenot.com —> coupon codes for most businesses
[if sites ban them from posting codes, ala J. Crew, then individuals often post them in the forums]
2) www.evreward.com —> enter the site you’re shopping, and you’ll see what rebate/awards site to visit to get the best return on your money. (ie. eBates) Just visit the site through that link, and you’ll be rewarded!
3) google.com —> it’s your bestest friend! Take a second, google “_____ coupon code” or something like that and see if anything pops up! :)
Those quick three steps always make me feel like I’m at least trying to strike some sort of deal with the bargain gods, and getting something worthwhile back!
Do you have any tried and true tricks you can add to these sites??
