How to Save Money This Holiday Season
Tip #1: Take Advantage of Sales and Coupons
I know it may seem obvious, but during the holidays it’s more important than ever to take advantage of sales and coupons. This season, more stores than ever are offering amazing online coupon codes that will help you save a ton of money on your holiday shopping, and you can find them easily thanks to Coupons.com! Simply head over to Coupons.com to learn about the latest sales and coupons and then go read their blog, The Good Stuff, to see amazing affordable gift ideas for everyone on your shopping list. With only a few minutes of internet research, you could reduce your holiday shopping bill by hundreds!
Tip #2: Check Out Your Credit Card Rewards Program
Whether you’re using a debit card from your bank or a fancy credit card, take a few minutes to brush up on your card’s rewards program. Many debit and credit cards offer discounts or cash back on your purchases in addition to giving you points that you can trade in for prizes!
Tip #3: Recycle
Re-gifting gets a bad rap, but honestly, it’s a smart move. Whether you’ve received a free gift with purchase at a store or a nice gift from a co-worker that you just don’t need, why not gift it to a loved one over the holidays? No, I’m not saying to pass on horrible stuff to someone else, but if you have fifteen body washes, you don’t need another one. Great gifts that you won’t use will simply sit in storage for years, so wrap them up nicely and re-gift or “recycle” the gift to someone who would truly love it! You’ll be saving money, and you’ll also be reducing unnecessary waste.
