Online Shopping Savings Resources
Note that many of these sites and plug-ins give you deals and discounts in exchange for your acceptance of cookies to follow your online interactions. This helps tailor ads to you online and across connected devices. Some find it creepy, some find it helpful. Up to you. Just know this before you proceed.
BradsDeals.com – still my absolute favorite daily deals email; only catch is that you may not be in-market for many of the items in the email recap and/or the deals may be gone by the time the email hits your inbox or you have a chance to sift through it
CamelCamelCamel.com – Amazon price tracker and Amazon price history; get email alerts when particular items you’re eyeing drop below the price you need
ClarkDeals.com – Clark Howard, the financial guru, has a team on the ground vetting and posting real deals for consumers
CouponCabin.com – a great place to search for coupons, where crowdsourced votes lead you to the most current and active deals
Coupons at Checkout – a browser plugin that will automatically find and submit coupon codes at checkout for you
DealNews.com – curated and emailed list of live deals across the web
Ebates.com – cash back at many online retailers (you can usually stack this with coupons)
Entertainment.com – join their email list to find out about book deals throughout the year; when you purchase a coupon book (at a discount), you’ll also get online access to hundreds of national and local coupons
Honey – a browser plugin that will automatically find and submit coupon codes at checkout for you
RetailMeNot.com – a great place to search for coupons, where crowdsourced votes lead you to the most current and active deals; you can set up alerts for your favorite retailers
SnagShout.com – what started out as Amazon deals in exchange for your unbiased review is simply the deals part without the requirement of the review (however it would still be nice to help out the small businesses, if you are so inclined to do so)
Wikibuy.com – a browser plugin that will automatically find and submit coupon codes at checkout for you, search the web to see if Amazon items in your cart can be found less expensively at other sites, and automatically applies your Ebates.com rebate link for you
I personally use all of these services when I online shop. However, I am linking to their sites via an affiliate URL where possible, in order to get credit for the referral and help keep my site afloat. So, please click-through!
