We have entered the Black Friday Countdown and I have made a steadfast decision to shop as much online as possible rather than driving from store to store! In the end, I do go to the stores, but I keep a handy APP with me that saves me money because if you read about me in Real Simple you know I am an over-saver and I have to save to feel good!
I know how to get the best savings online and if you think it has something to do with great coupons and great deals you are right, but it also has to do with making holiday shopping easy! My One SuperWord for you: RetailMeNot! Where value meets discounts and brands meet customers!
Hello Black Friday Shoppers! My black Friday starts before the day itself. As I am standing in the kitchen, slaving over a roasting turkey I have my tablet with me and I am seeking all the deals I want to pin down and grab! In all honesty, I can tell you that a lot of what I do is driven through the RetailMeNot site because they have done all the hard work, and now I just need to remember to not go overboard on frugality! Shopping for brand name items or in great stores is not complete unless you are receiving Deal Alerts so you can stay on top of savings all season long. Remember, deals are not just one time a year, deals happen year round, so make sure to get all the deals sent to your phone and never miss the chance to save, that is how shopping makes you dollars and ‘cents’!
Let me share with you how RetailMeNot can make you a Frugalista, who shops, saves and yet manages to get the best brands at the best prices! RetailMeNot has the tools to make your holiday great and this number will make any coupon-savvy shopper weak in the knees as they offer between 500,000 coupons at over 60,000 stores. (ahh, I think I just fainted with that number!)
For those of you who are Gift Idea challenged, no problem, RetailMeNot can think for you as well! Your requirement is to know who you are shopping for so don’t drink too much eggnog! No matter if you are shopping for him, her, tech gifts, toys, decor, the possibility of recommendations are endless!
Shopping in the stores require a bit of different armory, and I am not a coupon-toting queen, my purse needs food and drink in it to refuel and those pesky coupons just get in my way. I am thankful for the access to the he best deals anytime, anywhere with the RetailMeNot Mobile Coupons App! This is so perfect for shopping day as I don’t have to waste paper, or ink and I know that I will never forget a coupon if there is one available because I always have my phone! The best part of this APP is that it lets me bookmark my favorite stores so I am sure to never miss a deal and maybe the fact that the APP notifies me that there is a HOT DEAL nearby when I am in proximity of the store(you can easily out gift, under-spend and enjoy the holidays)! I think you will be pumped to know that the APP also lets you know when a coupon is about to expire, no ‘cents’ letting it go to waste!
My advice is to stop reading this article, grab your smart phone, and download the APP. Once you’ve downloaded the RetailMeNot app be sure to check out their Snow Me The Money sweepstakes. Shake the snow globe for a chance to win a $25 eGift Card OR a $10,000 grand prize!
