You know I’m an eternal coupon girl… well, at least in the online world. Before every purchase, I check to see if there’s a coupon or a rebate to be had at that store… an extra 2-3 minutes and I’m saving pennies! I drive people (Mr. M) crazy by making him NOT purchase things until there’s a coupon… or checking for a discount…. paying full price when I don’t have it to is so my “tick.” Think that’s movie worthy?
I know people always talk about how great the rebate sites are, and even though they’re just part of how I shop now, I thought I’d prove to you just how awesome they really are. In 2013, those pennies added up to $142.69 from a combined total of 3 rebate sites! Not too shabby if you ask me!
My formula is as follows:
1) Shop. Find something I love. Add it to my cart. THEN… go hunting for “bonus savings.”
3) Use a coupon code that I found on one of those sites, or search real quick for any additional coupons.
4) Sit back and wait for the rebate check to surprise me in the mail or my PayPal account!
