This week, I’m going to share with you some money saving Web sites. I started joking with Jeff that my job is saving us money while unemployed (well, really my job is looking for a job but you know what I mean). So far, so good. Hopefully, you are signed up for Groupon by now (Groupon is adding cities all the time so check to see if your city has been added since I wrote about Groupon in March) and are saving a bundle when you go out to eat with Restaurant.com (Jeff & I had a yummy sushi dinner at Yuki Hana last night thanks to our restaurant.com coupon!).
Today’s site is one of my favorites – RetailMeNot.com. I really don’t shop anywhere without going to this site first. RetailMeNot offers promo codes and links to downloadable coupons for bricks and morter retailers. Plus, the site gives you a “success rate” so you know if a promo code is legit or a scam (users can post codes, too). For example, if you type in restaurant.com you go to a page with restaurant.com offers. Some are ho-hum (yes, I know I can get a $25 gift certificate for $10 because that’s the standard price) but if you scroll further down, you can find some treasures like if you use the promo code PORTION, you can save 80% on your restaurant.com purchase!
On the downside, the new printable coupons section hasn’t had a lot of success for me. It’s new, though, so maybe that will change with time.
The key to success with RetailMeNot.com – look for stores, restaurants, and sites that you know offer promo codes. The mom & pop down the street won’t likely be on the site but DSW or Domino’s Pizza have great offers.
We all have some that are our favorites so pretty please with sugar on top, please share your favorites in the comments section! Thanks for reading Bright-Yellow!
