What are you waiting for? Come back and shop!

I’ve been comparing/price checking certain things on the Target website a lot lately. Thanks to the cookies on my computer Target knows that I want to buy something, but I’m putting it off. I just received an email from Target asking” Still Thinking About This Item?” with a picture of one of the many items I was looking at and an offer for $5 off of my next order of $50 or more! I’m pretty sure I can also use my RedCard for an additional 5% off and free shipping.

I’ve received the same kind of “Come Back & Shop” offer from Macy’s, Bath & Body Works, and Bed Bath, & Beyond in the past. So, if you’re looking for a deal on something, look for it online. Add it to your cart or just click on it for more information. Make sure your cookies are turned on and always log into your account so the store knows who you are and what you want. They may be willing to give you a discount just for dragging your feet.



Pay Retail? Me? Not.

One of my favorite sites to check before I make an online purchase is RetailMeNot. No joke, I don’t make a single online purchase without first checking this site for a discount code.  It’s just one of the hundreds of online coupon code mills, but it’s more organized and you don’t get annoying pop-ups.  They have printable coupons, when they’re available, and they will text the coupon to you if you want to save the paper (Save money & trees!).  There’s a comment link under each code/offer which let’s people share whether or not the code worked and when.  They have an app now which is very useful for in-store coupon codes, too.  And because you’re a savvy blog reader you should also check out their savings blog.

I don’t bother with the other coupon code mills. FatWallet looks like a mess to me. If RetailMeNot doesn’t have it, it probably doesn’t exist.
