Money-Saving Website

Updated December 18th, 2015.

Ever buy something online, and right at the end you see a little box that says “Enter your promotional code here”? Ever wonder how you’re supposed to get those codes? I get them from provides discount codes for use on other websites (and printable coupons for use in stores, and news about special offers). I’ve made checking with a habit– every time I’m about to buy something online, I open another browser window (File/New Window, or Command-N) and see if RetailMeNot can help me save some money. A lot of the time they can.

It’s an easy website to figure out. Here’s what it looks like (note: it’s better on a Mac than on an iPhone):

Rather handy. When you see the store you’re interested in you can click on it and boom, you’re shown a list of discounts and special offers for that store. Here’s part of what that looks like (it’s a long list).

RetailMeNot is pretty clever. They’ll show you deals for other stores and online merchants that are similar to the one you’ve chosen. And sometimes they just come out of the blue with a great idea. Here’s one they recently showed me from Amazon:

Who knew? That’s a great deal. Thanks,!
