Looking to enhance your online shopping skills?

I can help! For the past ten years (+) I have perfected my online shopping skills and I love sharing them here on the blog with all of you. Here are some of my favorite tips for rocking the online deals and maximizing your savings:

Print your coupons and print them OFTEN! CLICK HERE to browse coupons and you can always come back to my site and check for the latest coupons. Most of the time you can print them TWICE…(sometimes more, sometimes less) … but print them when you can because a lot of the times the manufacturers will reset them which means twice as many coupons! Usually coupons match up with sales…so this is where you can save the most! I refer to these often and will try to alert you to high dollar ones!

I actually do the bulk of my shopping online, and I have quite a few tricks in my bag of tools that help me to save a lot by doing so!  First of all, I highly suggest setting up an email account for JUST your online shopping and deals. This way, you won’t get overwhelmed with offers and emails, but you will have a place to go when you feel like hunting one down :)

Here are my top TEN online shopping and saving tips:

amazonprimefreeNumber One:
I do have to say that Amazon is probably my top resource for hot deals, and the fact that I have Amazon Prime makes Amazon an easy choice for finding great deals. I highly recommend Amazon Prime and if you have ever considered trying it out, now would be the time since you can score a FREE 30day Amazon Prime membership which will help you score some awesome deals, without the stress of shipping charges.

lucky magazineNumber Two: Another of my favorite places for finding great gifts at discount prices is You might want to keep an eye on my Daily Magazine Deals for each days best discounts, but also remember that you can get 20% off most titles when you use coupon code SheSaved on the site.ebates

ThirdRebate and Cash Back Sites! My two favorites are Ebates and ShopatHome …..I get cash back checks every month now, and they grow quicker than you think! Each site gives you a $5 bonus to your account when you make your first purchase… and if you shop online at all … it is just a smart way to go! Even eBay has a cash back program!! Make your money work for you, right?

2014 Entertainment BooksNumbers Four and Five… Now that you are a member of a cash back site (or two!) you should purchase AN ENTERTAINMENT BOOK ( CLICK HERE to learn more ) and buy your coupons (CLICK HERE to learn more ). These two things are the reason that

a) I get cash back checks every month and
b) The reason that we get to go out a couple times a week.
Take for example … after my sons Tball game we opted to try Qdoba Mexican Restaurant rather then come home and make a meal… with the 50% off coupon in there, a $18 meal became a $9.00 meal … for 4 people! Honestly…this book pays for itself over and over (and right now they are only $15 with free shipping with $6 cashback…making them $9!)swagbucks
Sixth … I am going to have to say Swagbucks!! I know this one seems silly… but get a few friends to join, and you win when they win … and before you know it your total goes up and up! Around 450 swagbucks will score you $5 on Amazon. Over 2000 is a Target $20 gift card, and I have literally cashed out over $600 worth of swag. In fact, it pretty much paid for Christmas in our home this year … so start NOW and use it as your search engine … they pay you to search. duh!!?? right?
Number Seven, Eight and Nine: Zulily, Joss & Main and Rue La La
These three discount deal sites are my very favorite deal sites  for finding super hot deals on kid’s clothing, toys and even a few great finds over the years for me (I wait  patiently for their designer jean sales!!)
 York Photo Deals
…and I guess number Ten on my list for ways that I rock the online deals would have to be all of the awesome photo deals that we see online. Click HERE to check out all the latest photo deals and my favorite spots for finds great deals!
