Did You Know?

Deal? 

Deal.

If you're smart, you're doing online gift-giving in order to avoid the crowds at the mall, or the narrow parking-less boutique-y streets, not to mention those massive post office lines this time of year. Congratulations. You're a smart cyber-shopper.

And if you're like me, you're also searching make and model #s, comparing online prices to get the best deal possible, not to mention tax-free, which in our 8.25% town adds up quickly.


But here's a quick tip t0 up your savvy. Did you know you can sniff out promotional codes for many online retailers, saving you anywhere from 10-30% off the top of an already good deal, or free shipping, or a free whatnot add-on item? You just have to look for 'em.

I just tested 3 different codes to see which would give me a better deal: $10 off $50 or more, 15% off, or free shipping on a weighty item. (I used two different promo codes on two separate orders from the same vendor to save the most money per purchase.)

Just
Google the name of the site/vendor and the words "promotional code" and chances are you will be able to search through a plethora of deals. Grab the codes and go back and plug them into the vendor's check-out box, and voila, an even better deal. You gotta love that!

Happy hunting and Happy Holidays!

I have done 90% of my shopping on-line this year, but didn't know about scoring the promotional codes! TOTALLY happy to have that hot tip for next year! And birthdays! And, and, and! Buy everything you can from Oregon, no sales tax!

love.

I have been using this trick for a while and love it! I am interested in renewing my subscription to brain, child magazine (which I see that you've written for before) and buy J.N.s book, practically perfect... I've googled for a promo code and can't find one. Any hints?
