Favorite Coupon Sites

Now that I am "out on my own" I love getting discounts whenever I can. I thought it would be fun to share a few of my discount secrets {or maybe not so secretive...}

Two sites I check everyday are Woot! and Target Daily Deals.

Woot often has electronics and all sorts of things you might you need. Target deals are usually pretty great and come with free shipping! {Plus with Christmas coming up they have many more Daily Deals than usual!}

Woot has a few sister sites like Sellout Woot and Kids Woot, which have wonderful deals as well.

I am also signed up for both Seattle and Phoenix Groupon. Groupon sends daily coupons via email to certain places around your area. Kevin and I have purchased 3 Seattle Groupons! These deals are often FABULOUS such as you pay $10 for $25 worth of food at Crepe Cafe. I definitely recommend that you sign up for your town if you haven't already!

Another way to get coupons is to sign up to be on the newsletter for your favorite stores. For instance, Joann's and Michael's send emails with special coupons for email "members."

I am also signed up for the Southwest Airlines newsletter so I can make sure to catch the flight deals with they are available. Email lists can get cumbersome and somewhat annoying, but they can be worth it!

Two other sites that might come in handy are Steep and Cheap {which has a wide variety of outdoor gear for SUPER cheap} and Whiskey Militia {which has a variety of snow, ski, skate, etc gear for super cheap}. Both of these sites have deals that last about 20 - 30 minutes each and if you catch it at the right time you can find just what you were looking for!

My final tip to find items for cheaper is to search for them on Google Shopping. You can search for the item you are looking for and Google searches all over the internet. This way you can find where the item is selling for the cheapest price. It's quite exciting!

Let me know if you are ever looking for a place to find deals! I have many more ideas to getting the best deal.
