Lets face it, I love shopping. This whole paying off debt thing has put a bit of kink in that, but I like my key pieces, but I try very hard not to go overboard with anything. Obviously, I’m always searching for ways to save money online. In fact, I do most of my shopping online because it has saved me so much money. However, one trick I’ve recently picked up on is making sure that I try to use coupons or promotional codes whenever I check out online. I was surprised to see that most the retailers where I shop always have promotions and discounts on their websites, and I wanted to get a piece of the action.
How It Works
Instead of clipping coupons, online, you must utilize a coupon code or promotional code at checkout. Most retailers provide these to certain customers, or advertise them on certain places. What CouponChief tries to do is put all the coupons and promotional codes in one place so that anyone can use them.
Once you know where you want to shop, you need to head over to CouponChief and search for the store where you are making a purchase. Then, look at the available coupons and codes. There may be ones for discounts on your purchase, or free shipping, or offers if you spend a certain amount.
Once you’ve decided on the deal you want, simply copy the code and paste it in the “Promotional or Coupon Code” place at the regular online store’s checkout. If it works, you’ve just saved yourself some money.
Why I Like It
I am a big fan of this site for several reasons. First, the ease of use – it is so easy to find the coupons that you’re looking for, and they have pretty much every retailer that I’ve ever needed listed on there. They have many national retailers, which is great.
Second, I’ve found the success rate of CouponChief’s codes to be among the highest that I’ve found online. This is great, since I don’t have to try multiple codes to get a discount when I check out.
And finally, I love the fact that they have a pays-2-share program where you earn money for sharing coupon codes. I mean, I do this regularly anyway, but to have someone give me money makes it all worth while.
Anyway…. on to the giveaway. This giveaway is divided into 2 parts. The first part is on this blog, and the second part on the newly launched CHIC DARLING. So make you enter both as you can either or.
