Everyone likes a bargain. Some people are so used to bargaining they try to negotiate on everything. Many stores offer online discounts and occasional in-store discounts to promote sales. Here are some tips on how you can save money by using deal sites.
Using coupon sites
There are many coupon sites such as Coupons.com and Coupon Tracker which can help you to save a sizeable amount of money on groceries. These sites are full of information on the various deals, loyalty programs and coupon combinations that you can use to save money on products in various stores. The good thing is that sales are organized by city and state, so it’s easy to find deals that are relevant to you. A lot of them also offer free coupons which you can print and take with you to the store.
Other sites such as dealupa.com take this concept further by filtering out the deals and presenting only the ones which may be of interest to you. Dealupa.com checks social networks to see how many people are liking, sharing and tweeting the various deals. They are then ranked in order of popularity based on the statistics which makes it easier for you to see which deals you should consider.
Using Twitter and Facebook
A lot of companies use Twitter and Facebook to advertise discounts, special offers, and coupons. Following some companies will increase the possibility that you’ll see the promotions and discounts which they’re offering. You can also proactively search for discounts on Twitter and Facebook using hashtags or looking through the trending hashtags. There are some companies and websites which don’t do retail themselves, but they track ongoing promotions and deals in various other stores. A good example of this is AllYou.com, which has a website that tracks current sales for different retailers. They also tweet out some of this information.
There is a multitude of sites all over the web, some local and some national. If you spend enough time finding them, they’ll help you save a lot of money in the long run.
